I have A64 3200+ S939
Arctic Silver 5
Thermaltake A1770
80mm vantec stealth
120mm vantec stealth

The chip runs 35/45 C @ stock according to Speedfan. Most of the others I've seen runs this CPU at 20's/30's. Do I need a better cooler?

your fine


also if u have a case with a bunch of wires everywhere then heat cant escape very well


more fans could help, and/or cleaning the wire a bit so there out of the way

Those temperatures, albeit higher, are not a problem. Just ignore it -money could be better spent elsewhere.

Or he could just save it to buy a new CPU when the time comes.

I agree with the posters above, your temps are fine :-D

Keep in mind some temp sensors are not very accurate.

Take a can of compressed air and blow all the dust away from the CPU heatisink and fan.

I also Have a 3200+ Venice and according to PCProbeII, Its running at 37C @Stock As we speak, so your temps arent unheard of. Dont waste money you dont have to. I had a 3000+ (Same Core) which was running 32C Stock, most of the time.

Its probably just the summer heat.LOL, well at least for me......
