Hey,

I got a AMD X2 3800+ Dual model with an ASUS A85NX mobo, with 1GB value ram with another 1gb on the way.

Anyways my temps are:

IDLE:
CPU: 34C

LOAD:
CPU: 37C

I'm using the stock fan but I got pretty good airflow in the case, so that helps a bit. You guys think I should overclock it? I never did but read a few articles and I'm a good learner. :) 

Thanks, and if anyone knows an article for overclocking this CPU, please post it.

you dont need to overclock unless you just want to
because you wont see any diff except in benchmarks
and very little at that

sorry i forgot that you are getting another gig of ram
that will make the biggest diff
