Default Temps up to 65C playing FarCry

I have stock cooling, am I alright if I don't OC? I know AMDs run hot but that seems a bit unhealthy.
I had planned to get some better case fans and a better-than-stock cpu fan this summer.

all processors will die out in say... over the time it takes for it to become obsolete, the higher temp just means it wont be able to OC as much... but amd owns at gaming anyways so it shouldnt really matter. if you hardcore game, then stock cooling sucks... i personally didnt get into the whole pc cooling world, but im about to finally get to build my own comp, so i guess i'll have to do research on just about everything, but yeah, you should be fine.

PS open case side to a/c vent (if possible) and i think the temp probably will drop. very ghetto:beard:

yeah my cpu was reaching the top end of 60+c after a hardcore session on doom 3 or Halflife 2. I have 5 case fans and still really high. I bought the Gigabyte 3D Rocket Pro and it reduced my cpu temp dramatically. It now runs 39 idle and never over 55 after a heavy load.

You are at 103F. If you were at 103C your comp would be dead.

well i read somewhere that if (with amd) the cpu reaches 75c then the cpu will start to get damaged, not die but the cpu wont last as long. Dont know whether its true or not

It is true. If your CPU was 103, it would die, die, die.

On some hardcore HL2 gaming with cpu at 100%, my 3400 OC'ed to a 3800 reaches a terrible, um, 40 degrees celcious :P
