I overclocked my 2.2ghz amd 64 3700+ to 2.4 and the temp is 46c witht the stock fan. and no special thermal paste. is that a good temp?

Wait, I'm confused. So are you supposed to spread it out, or just leave some on the CPU to spread itself out?

putting AS5 was the best and the cheapest performance upgrade ive ever done. made my cpu temp down 5-8c. i put that on GPU also. but no temp drop at going to put it on PWMIC and chipset when i get a chance. cuz for my set up, anything other than cpu is over heating. (not really over heating but i want to keep the temp down.)
