Acceptable CPU Temperature Range of Intel Pentium 4

First of let me tell you my Systems important config:
Windows Vista
MSI 865PE NEO2-FIS2R
Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz 800 FSB
Corsair TWINX2048-3200C2 4GB

Now I want to know, if processor and motherboard are well ventilated with fans everywhere, what should be the in general and normal temperature of the CPU?

re: Acceptable CPU Temperature Range of Intel Pentium 4

Particularly, every different version of Processor use to have their separate acceptable CPU temperature but if you asking for the general, instead of mention and Celsius I would like to say lower the cooler, better casing. If your system remains more cooler, it will last longer.

if your CPU temperature goes upto 65 to 70C than you should worry about the same because your system is overheating. I am having the very similar config, just my motherboard is 3.0E. When my system reaches 65 above I used to apply thermal paste to make normal upto 40 to 45.If yours remains above 60 you should consider using a Core 2
based box. The thermal management in the Core 2 line is far better than the Pentium line.

Talking about general and Normal CPU temperature range, I will say 38C to 42C is a good range. This is the range where I keep my CPU with cooling fans and using thermal paste. In my case whenever my CPU raches ~55C at full load, I start getting problems.
