    About 2 minutes after gaming TF2 for an hour, I checked in BIOS and it read 49c as my CPU temperature. Is this still considered full load temp or not?

    No, that would be considered idle at that stage. Cpu temp can drop very quickly after you have finished some cpu intensive task. Your best bet would be to have some application in windows monitor and record your temp while you game. Speedfan comes to mind, but it really depends what cpu you have and if it is supported by that or a better program.

    My AMD 9850 Quad Core 2.5GHz is about 35c idle and 59c full load. If your temp is higher then about 60c full load then you should see if you can get a new heatsink.

    LOL! My Pentium III 650mhz averages 204*F while gaming! I've watched it climb to 210+! I have a temperature controller in my toolbar that makes the "jet turbine" fan kick in around 108*.

    when I'm not gaming, it's usually under 100. right now it's at 110, and the only thing running is Firefox 3.5 [​IMG]



    The RAM is on the bottom, with a metal cover, and if I have it in my lap too long I could literally burn myself [​IMG]

    wat the hell? how does your comp survive those hellish temps.

    Mine is a Intel Q9400 at 3.1 ghz which generally runs at 40C idle and around 55C on full load.
    I clocked it back to factory settings for now since it is hot as hell and i dont need additional hot air cooking up my room lol.
    Yesterday my room reached round 90 degree F
    Sweet huh

    From looking at the AMD site 65°C is the max safe temp for your particular type of cpu.
