Since I upgraded to my Sapphire X800 GTO 256 (16 pipes) my CPU seems to be running a bit hot.
At idle, GPU reads about 95F, when I fire up Medal of Honor she shoots up to 144F! MBM 5
sounded a warning at 154F last night. My OC readings with TRIXX are <mem clock 525.27>
<vpu 424.64> I have a P4 HTT 2.80 1gig ram 500 PSU. Is this acceptable?
Will I need to invest in water cooling?
Here are some readings I got today with Hot CPU tester below.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

So, is it the CPU temp or GPU temp you are worried about?
Max on CPU is between 64'c and 78'c depending on the exact model.
You can either lower the clock on the X800 or get a aftermarket GPU cooler.
144'f = 62.22'c should be OK.
Here's a link to x800 info on voltmods INCLUDING temps.

It is both Cpu and Gpu temps, I just don't want to fry my system. I tried it standard clocks as well which seemed to make very little difference in temp values.

Are your fans running? How about on your GPU dose it kick into high speed? Mine started to over heat after the 16 pipes but I adjusted the fan to kick in sooner. I would also check your CPU fan and cooler for built up dust.

I checked the fans as I've been trying to get a handle on the situation. Can too many fans cause the CPU to work harder? at one point I had 3 extra fans running but have since disconnected them to see if they were the cause of extra strain on the system.

It wouldn't cause your CPU to over heat, unless the fans you took out were exhaust fans taking out the build up of heat in your system. The only thing to many fans would hurt would be the PSU and there wouldn't be enough power drawn from them for that.
