    Atom 330 processor core temp - is 53c too hot?

    Darkhog

      I just bought an MSI Nettop 100 barebones system.  I'm running speedfan and it is telling me that temperatures peak out around 53 degrees C.  In their UI, this is burning hot.

       

      Looking at some of the online specifications, it indicates to me that the chip can operate up to 80 degrees C.  Am I reading that correctly?

       

      Is 53 degrees ok, or do I need to add a fan?

       

      Thanks!
