Firstly, hi everyone! And it's going to stay that way for two hours while Nero 6 takes 9 VOB files and burns a VCD. Doesn't that seem rather high? Stock Intel HS/Fan and a twin exhaust on the power supply. The mobo is an Intel D845PESV and the 2 regions are cooking at 41 and 44 degrees while the fan at 2800rpm, and Windoze Task Manager shows the CPU usage pegged at 100% with 324MB PF Usage. So is it ok for me to go to sleep or leave the house? Or if I leave should it be just to go get fire insurance? How accurate is this Intel Active Monitor software giving me these readings?
