It can vary widely with the CPU

and the system setup. Please tell us more.

Run down around 35 C is fine for any, but some run just fine at 60 C, although everyone, except Intel, will tell you that is too hot.. LOL

The early Athlons 1.2 thru 1.4 ran that hot frequently.

I have an AMD Athlon64 3300+, which, according to Everest, runs at an average of 53C, and the motherboard at 43C. When I first got it the average temerature was about five degrees higher, but a BIOS upgrade since then probably explains the difference in reports. In any case, your temps sound normal for the processor type, assuming standard fans for cooling. As long as your fans aren't overworking and your computer is acting alright, it's fine.

Hope this helps,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
