Is 42 degrees Celsius an acceptable temperature for an Athlon XP 1900+ CPU?
Currently my Athlon XP 1900+ CPU is running at 42 degrees Celsius. Is that ok? What is the highest is can go, still be stable, and not get damaged?
Also my system temperature is about 41 degrees Celsius. Is that ok? What is considered ok for system temperature?

42 is a good temperature. Just for grins leave the side of your case off and see if it runs much cooler--if it does you might need better case ventilation. Also, do run some processor intense applications and check the temperature then to see what a difference the load makes.
