Exclamation Maximum FX-55 temperature

Hi,
I just bought an FX-55 and I have it hooked up with an ABIT Fatal1ty motherboard. The temperature at the moment is 66 celsius. What is the max temperature this CPU can handle? I am using a Gigabyte Neon 8 Cooler Pro with it. Could anyone reccomend a new cooler or something? I don't have cool and quiet enabled, someone told me not to enable it because it makes games lag. I don't know if that is true. Can anyone help me out?

Official top temp for fx 55, 0.13 technology, running at 2.6 Ghz is 63 C, other models have a top temp of 70 C, so... you must do something...
In other words, a Sempron socket A is fresh as a lettuce at 66 C (topping at 90 C), but yours is burning...

Better 60 or less.
You can do it with some Zalman hs/fan and Artic Silver compound...
