A buddy of mine has the same chip. His manual states that it can go as high as 70 C so at 53 you should be good to go It sounds like you have an adaquete cooling system. So unless it startes acting funny you should be alright.
I agree with Der on this one I think your fine... I personally would be bugged by it, but thats just because I'm anal about little things like that. This is what I'd use, and will use after I get my XP... my athlon is running at like 43 C, so I think it's fine.davidw333 said:Would I need a super fricking fan that cost more than my $100 CPU? Any one's opinion here?
