hey guys. new to the forum and i built my first htpc. its a p4 3.0ghzc non overclocked. its my main rig but i wanted it in a smaller case that i coudl hide with my other components. my question is that i went from a lage spacious case to the dvine 4 series. is 56c to 58c normal for this case. i use to get round 45 to 49c in the other case. i have an slk900u with a vantec stealth 92mm on top.

You should be fine, the CPU is rated up to 65-70 degrees C. If your system encounters stability problems, you may need to improve on the cooling...but don't worry about frying the CPU, since P4s have thermal protection built in.

AMD have always been cooler! not just there temp's lol! P4's are fine i think you just need to sort out the air flow and you may drop 5 degrees C. but as she is shes fine. i once had a panic attack after uninstalling my water cooling and see temp's go up from 25 degrees to 35 degrees C i thought the chip was to hot but id only got use to seeing low temps lol!
