Windows 7: Is my computer temps too hot?

Is my computer temps too hot?

So far on my Coolermaster Elite 343 I have a 120mm fan at front and a 90mm in the back.
Idle:
CPU:28-30 C
MB:30C
VGA:32C
HDD:28C
Under Load:
CPU:43C
MB:41C
VGA:48C
HDD:39-41C

When under load are my temps too high?

At least into the 60s, probably higher than that for video.

My CPU gets into the low 60s under a heavy load and above 70 under a burn test, but I don't worry about it at all. As I recall, current Intel CPUs don't throttle themselves until close to 100. So you have a lot of leeway.

Hard drives rarely get above the low 40s.

You should have some idea of normal ranges on your PC. The temperature of your room matters a lot--if temps are 10 degrees higher in summer, you may notice nearly that much of a rise in CPU temps.

Make sure your fans are always spinning. You can monitor their speeds with any good hardware monitoring tool.

You should be able to force temps higher with an app such as Prime 95--just to give you an idea of how each component will move up when highly stressed.

Okay thanks. I'm going to buy another 90mm for the side fan bay for extra coolness as my room does get hot.
