I just upgraded to a Phenom II X2 555 and upped the multiplier 17.5 to get 3.5 GHz. (I just wanted a few hundred MHz OC with my rig)

Temps stayed at around 40C - 44C max load w/Prime 95.
I know my aftermarket cooler probably isn't the best choice, but it does actually work quite well.
I'll be getting some MOSFETt cooling sinks soon after I find the measurements.

Anyone have some suggestions or comments
I'll put up some pics in a bit

This CPU also unlocks to a Quad, but I just want to tweak it as a Dualie for now. I also probably upgrade to a nice Gigabyte mobo with built in MOSFET cooling, AM3+, Full ATx, etc..

Thanks
HW
