Wow, that's hot... :o

Thanks for your reply! I was just worried that my processor was getting too hot, but I guess that there's nothing for me to worry about! :D

Thank you again!

Seemed very hot to me also. What temperature is yours running at?

The highest temp I've seen with the current heat sink is about 36 degrees C, but it was idle, not at full load.

I mention the "current heat sink" because the fan on the last one began causing trouble, so I replaced the heat sink yesterday.
