God people quit fueling his fire.

He has no life and gets off on coming here to post BS info. Just ignore it already.

65C is pretty dang hot although it is technically safe.

Most AMD's have a thermal shutdown of 70C, so you should probably get an aftermarket heatsink, or more case fans like you had planned.

It's annoying for people who really want help, not to mention completely moronic. If you have so much fun with it, the IM him and talk all you want about gigabytes not transferring correctly in dos thanks to the tracking system

Umm, yea, 65 is no a bad temp, especially while under heavy load.

My AMD64 3200+ Winchester idles between 38-42C and under heavy loads around 50-51C. Think it would run cooler but I put abit too much AS5 on the core and I heard this spreads the distance between the HS and cpu thus increasing temps. Can anyone confirm this ? Oh yea, it's stock speed atm.
