Got a Gateway MX6421 notebook, and have discovered Mobilemeter . . . so now that I can look at my CPU and HDD temeratures in realtime, where do I look for info on what is the ideal temperature range of these? I'm around 57-60C for the CPU; and 39C for the HDD.

CPU is AMD Turion 1.8 ghz ML-32

80 GB HDD (4200 RPM)

Thanks...

You should check in the BIOS or for software on the install/drivers disks to make sure that you have Cool'N'Quiet enabled those temps seem high. My 3000+ desktop runs in the mid to high 30's idle and less than 50 under full load for hours.
