my prescott loaded at 65 when i had stock cooling on it for 5 months. My abit board i guess reads temps a lil high but 60 shouldnt be a problem, right now im at 53 load though (with stock cooling it IDLED at that) and thats with an overclock so this cooler=own if you want to get one i would recommend it.

Max. recommended vcore is 1.525 volts, but if the load temp is safely under the 65°C barrier, it's ok to push it just a bit higher. Like jrabb suggested, I tend to try to keep my Prescott under 55°C for 24/7 usage. For finding the max for the CPU and running benchmarks for short terms, you can break 65°C by a bit as long as you don't go too crazy.
