Default Re: Temps??

uh... my CPU gets to its max temp when running Prime95 for 5 seconds...
Prime95 is a CPU Stressing program, so it makes the CPU work 100% which generates much heat
Unless you are using an good HSF.

I imagine it depends on which one you are talking about specifically.

Anyway, I would pull that heatsink off and reapply thermal paste.

The max temp for an X2 4800+ runs anywhere from 65C to 72C depending on the model.

That's not a bad CPU cooler. You could have done better for the price though.

AS5 has a 200 hour break-in period where it'll go down a few degrees during that time.
