Absolute max for an AMD 55C at max load. Anything over that and you're shortening the life of the CPU. Staying under 50C at max load would be about as high as you should get, but up to 55 should be okay. Serious wearing down of the CPU won't start until around a little over 60C and it won't melt/be seriously damaged until a little over 70C.

yea 47c max load should be just fine for that processor. If its stock cooling, you might consider upgrading and pushing it a little more

Yea i'd like to get that zalemon heatsink/fan or however u spell it but it seems so big, and i have the new Asus A8N32-SLI-Deluxe with the pipe cooling that runs through out the MOBO so i dont think it would fit on my MOBO.

as far as your northbridge/chipset. i would think 60c is on the hot side, and 55c is about normal max temp. Mine is around 42c idle, and 48c load.
