Default AMD 3500+ temps

My new Athlon 64 3500+ CPU was measured at 46 degrees at start up using cool and quiet. is this good or should i get some better cooling?

46°C (idle) is nothing to worry about.

yea and if you have a good copper heatsink and good fan on there even during the biggest load ur cpu temp wont go over 50C.. because copper does one hell of a job dissipating heat lol

Copper is the best at absorbing heat. Aluminum is what you need to dissipate.
