My 1055T @ 3.85GHz loads at 52C in a room that is 78F ambient (home for the summer).

It's pretty crazy the you can add 2 cores, clock it higher, and end up with a lower load (pending I had my 70 degree apartment back lol).
Haha I'm a bit boggled to be honest. I had bought the Athlon II X4 and a Phenom II X2 and the Phenom was almost 20c higher than the Athlon, and it matched the old Phenom I had just gotten rid of. It's one of the reasons why I haven't stuck with a newer Phenom is because the raised temps over performance isn't really something I'm concerned with and never stuck with it.

I'm currently doing some test and playing with NB and HT speeds.

HT: 1936 Mhz
NB: 2420 Mhz
CPU : 242*14.5 @ 3.5Ghz @ 1.4V
RAM : 9-9-9-24-1T @ 1.5V (stock)
CPU temps : 37C-42C Max load on prime95

Right now I'm stable for an hour

I want to know if there will be some improvements over my previous settings at 2000Mhz on both (HT and NB).

I'm tinkering with the NB and RAM timings.

Testing out my RAM timings at 6-5-5-15 Voltage at 2v (Yes I have DDR2 ram)

And the NB is at 2250MHz atm stress testing with LinX trying to get 20 passes

CPU max temp 50C and the NB is 53C

EDIT: BSOD dang! was almost past all 20! time to up to NB voltage and NB clock.

It's a bad overclock. Some motherboard like what I have will reset the bios to default.

3.5Ghz @ 1.448v, 2.7Ghz NB

Not bad for an 80 dollar processor

I'm not sure if it applies with your ASROCK board but I don't think there is no harm in trying to put your rams on slot 3 and 4 (white slots). If you read the previous posts I encountered some errors with my rams on the blue slots then it's rock stable on whites.
Update:
I tried runing memtest on overclocked machine,all night no errors, also tried runing prime95 all night,no errors...And recently I started having problems when playing games,the game would crash, my screen would flicker on intros and stuff like that. Now I run the macihe on default, no oc done, and everything is fine. Why cant I oc normally,anyone have any idea?

Are you overclocking your video card as well? It seems like you have a good configurations on your cpu+ram based on stable prime. The problem might be somewhere else.

At first I did oc my graphic card, but when i saw the problems,i returned it to default,still had problems,and now with everything on default no problems,so i dont think it is graphic card. On my board i have some predefined ocs, when i match the one i had,eveyrithing is the same as i setuped it, except the northbride voltage which is a bit higher. Could that be a solution? Although I dont see how, i dont believe that I need to up the nb voltage to gain extra 40 fsb, to only 240 from default 200...i am really puzzled...
