nice. That beats mine. With the aftermarket cooler, I would think so though. Mine reads anywhere from 39-60+ with the stock cooler. I have turned off the amd turbo boost setting in the bios, and this has kept my mhz from crossing the 3.2 threshold. This setting is interesting, because instead of distributing the workload across all 8 of the cores, depending on how much multithreading is required, it concentrates the workload in the four main cores. For some reason, this setting always seems to raise my temps much faster than when it is off, and the work load is being distributed across all 8 cores. So, really with the stock fan, it sucks.... Glad your able to keep yours that low, thats great. Are you using the AI suite II? I rather like this program.
