it depends on the motherboard.
Athlon 64's usually run in the high 30's to mid 40's (celcius).
dual core Athlon 64's will often get 50

vcore doesn't matter so long as your load temps don't go past 55c
load temps in my oppinion are after 3hours prime
raise the vcore by the minimum untill you stabilize your overclock gl

I would keep the temp below 50 if I were you. Voltage, it can go real high

Doesnt clawhammer run hotter than new castle cores? 3500 are fine above 50, once u start hitting 60, it gets a little scretchy. It is best to keep under 50 though, as they said.

My 3500 NC, with stock cooler, was hitting high 60s with a little OC. With my xp90c, i dont hit above 48-49. i idle around 30

Yes clawhammer run hotter than newcastle. Maybee 55 degrees, but your loosing some CPU life at those temperatures.
