I had built my first system recently. Normally the CPU temperature is at 47-50C (detected by Asus utility). I remembered there is an attention from Intel in my P4 package says â€œIntel recommends that you use a chassis with an internal ambient temperature at or below 38C to ensure this Intel processor will operate within thermal specifications.â€ Since the temperature is always higher than the thermal standard of Intel, will my system become unstable? Should I try to change something to improve my system? Could anyone give me your advice?
Thanks in advance for your help.
