I just create a new machine based in P3 550Mhz not overclocked so far and with the standard fan the temperature is 56C.

The mobo is BE6-II, and the default temperature monitor alarm range start with 65C and shutdown the machine with 70C.

On the other hand I'm reading 35C should be the "normal" one.

I got confused. How should be the "normal" temperature for a P3 chip ?

(by the way I'm monitoring the temperature of my TNT2U board and I have the same number: 54 to 56C).

Thanks for sharing.
