most of these guys are super hardcore which =

a burning in period

After you apply your AS5 to your CPU start your comp and let your computer sit near idle for anywhre from as many hours as you can spare to 1 to 2 days. After you let your AS5 sit in, then your comp is ready for Overclock stuff.

Gotta let the as5 sit , i guesss... or just buy 5 fans

I'm using the stock heatsink with my 2800 and AS5 and my CPU runs at 50*C Load - before overclock. Up to about 55*C load after an overclock to 2.31ghz.

My point is, unless you plan to keep this cpu for more thatn 5 or 6 years, that anything under about 55*-56* is a safe max. But if you get a better HSF, or watercooling, then take it further.
