Cool Unlocking PHENOM II x2 555 to 4 cores on stock cooler ---- SAFE TEMPS?

Im thinking of unlocking my Phenom II x2 555 to 4 cores but im curious about the temps

At idle it stays around 20-23C
when im playing games like gta IV or mafia 2 it doesnt go over 31C

So should i unlock it with the stock cooler in or get a new cooler?

Give the stock a shot if it isn't too loud. AMD's recommended thermal threshhold is 62C so you have a lot of room to play with. My x4 965 runs 47-49 running Folding@Home on three cores (around 80%). It was still only in the low 50s running it on all four.
