are 45C and 55C good temperatures?

    I have recently overclocked my "locked XP2500" to 11.5x200, 1.75v core
    and aggressive settings on my HyperX memory sticks and the machine is
    stable there.

    My CPU idling temperature is about 43-45 degrees C and while under
    full load about 55 degrees C. By idling I mean running simple
    non-intensive applications like WP and maybe CD audio playing. Is that
    idle temperature a bit high or should it be OK?

    That's fine. A better heatsink/fan may lower the temps, but that's
    quite normal.

    If it's locked...how did you get 11.5?

    55 C is just about OK but you should really test it with something that puts
    full load on the cpu...I'd recommend downloading Prime95 and running the
    torture test.
