I have a Phenom 9600 not overclocked or anything and I'm using a Raidmax Smilodon case with pretty good cable management. My CPU cooler is a Xigmatek HDT-S1283 120mm Cooler with Arctic Silver 5. I'm idling around 40C which isn't high but it seems a little high judging from reviews. Can someone help me out here?
Mine will go around 55-60c on max load, its overclocked to 2450 odd, its the 9500 though so stock speed is 100MHz less. They dont clock well at all.
But then my plan has always been to upgrade when AMD brings out a nice chip, hopefully Phenom II will be that chip.
