I just got my PC back after 6 months punishment, and I downloaded and ran MBM5. My AMD Athlon XP 3200+ Barton cpu is running at 73 C -76 C. It's at stock speeds, 200 FSB, 11X multiplier with the stock heatsink. Are those temps too hot for my CPU? My case goes from 36 C - 40 C and my Radeon 9600XT OC'ed runs 40 C - 43 C. Why is my CPU so much hotter? Thanks.
