Question Mother Board warming up 40c

Hi there Slackers,
I start the game Quake3 having in mother board (M/B) temperature 28c, after 5 minutes playing, lm_sensors says me that M/B temperature is 40c, just with 5min playing!! That's normal? You when you play Quake3 5minutes you got 40c in M/B?

I have a Pentium4 1.7GHz 256K cache, 256 SDRAM, GeForce2 MX/MX 400 64MB.

I wouldn't say it's normal.. but it's not entirely unacceptable.. add more cooling if you're concerned..

That sounds about right. Note that it'll get up to 40, but most likely stay there for however long you play.

well...40 deg. C is not bad.
if you have a closed box your mobo is warming-up from the graphics-chips also.

if you want it cooler while gaming , take-off the cover.....
