That is very good. Stock cooling Trance?

Maximum for and AMD64 is 65 Celcius or 149 Fahrenheit.
With 2GHz stock.. You could push 2.4 nicely with the right cooling.. Stock wont cut the cheese. With stock, 2.25-2.3 MAX... No more then that. Temperature spikes are what I worry about with stock cooling.

Yeah, is that stock cooling or did you put on an aftermarket thermal solution and heatsink?

How many fans in your case?

Does anyone here use stock cooling on their Athlon 64 that want to share their CPU temp? I hope to have mine in two weeks and want to determine if I should go retail or just buy the processor OEM with aftermarket cooling.

But if the stock cooling is adequate and has close readings to Trance, than I'm getting retail using stock heatsink and fan.

Default Re: cpu temps

Well, I was hoping to buy retail in the first place because everything's already available. I'm just curious what the CPU temp would be when using stock.

I usually don't buy OEM unless they're floppy and hard drives. So as of now, I'm not planning on buying a heatsink. Thanks for the offer though.

Stock cooling, about 45 celcius. I would go aftermarket, go OEM and get 3rd Party cooling.

Default Re: cpu temps

that's why I'm a little worried of going aftermarket heatsink+fan combo because of fitting issues.

Can you guys suggest an excellent cooling heatsink and fan for the Athlon 64 3500+? Links help a lot too.
