i have a phenom II x4 965. my heat sure isnt the lowest but this dorm is FAR from the best environment to cool a computer. im trying to OC and see how far and can get it and still be stable but i don't know how to tell if my temperatures are too high. granted that everyone has a different opinion of what temperature is preferred that temperature is unsafe. i've heard a lot of conflicting things: i like under 50 but 65 is the point where u should throw the switch, 55C isnt a problem, 65C isnt a problem, max is 90C, no temperature is super bad it just shortens the life of the device (i find that one the hardest to believe, everything melts). I prefer facts over opinions, does anyone have some tests or some documents on these processors that would shed some light on temperature, anything more noteworthy than word-of-mouth....
