What are you guys talking about? We were both running it with a heatsink. His heatsink was not seating properly, so he sanded part of it down so it was actually touching. I run mine with a heatsink and fan and it gets pretty hot when I'm doing intensive stuff.. Idle it's around 30 Celsius, and can get to 70 Celsius under load! = P Then cools down pretty fast...

My stock AMD processor ran up to 80degrees celcius with full contact with my hsf at full load. Got myself copper heatpipe cooling and now it runs at 30C and 45 full load, it was lower before, propbably collected some dust in the fans.
