Ok, I was just wondering that if this is a problem.. My CPU temp is over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. i was just curious if that is a problem of not. here is a screenshot. I don't know how accurate the thing that I'm using is so just bear with me... thanks.

Well, that's about 38C.

If that's at idle, it's not bad. Better than my X2 5400+ which idles at just over 40C. Some may say it's a little warm, but really its perfectly fine, assuming your load temps don't skyrocket for some reason and your not planning on overclocking at all.

Mine (QX9650) idles at around 37C/100F, so that's fine.

I wouldn't start worrying until it reaches like 60 or 65°C... that is, around 140 / 150°F
