Can i keep my pc on all the time as long as the temperature of my PC doesn't go over 40°C????

And what is the Average Temperature a computer should be, and what is the max it can go to without burning itself.

Almost all CPUs these days have built-in thermal protection. Once they reach a certain trigger temperature, they begin to throttle back. If the temp gets too high, they shutdown completely.

Is the 40C the system temp or CPU temp? Is it at idle or under load? If it's the CPU, it's within the normal range. If it's the system temp, it's a bit high but nothing to worry about, but it would probably mean the CPU temp is even higher than 40C & that *may* be a problem.

You need to be more specific about the temps & it would help to know the make/model of your CPU. Why would you want your system on all the time?

You didn't bother to state the make/model of your CPU or why you'd want your system running 24/7?

Your temps are fine.
