Your load temps. are a little high, but within the rated spec. of 62C

Just keep in mind that this is a program that puts 100% strain on your CPU and I doubt you will be running any programs that will build the same kind of heat that Prime95 does. You may want to game or run whatever your most intense program that you will be using on a normal basis, for an hour or 2 and see how your temps. look.

hey, i run another test on p95 @ small ftts
for 7:30 hours, temp @ 58-60oC
no errors found or anyhting, just high temp as i see.

maybe if u could give me another HSF that is better than TX3
what would it be?
and of course it has to fit with my case Thermaltake V3?

Check frostytech.com for the latest news on heatsinks. They list the top ten tested for both AMD and Intel platforms.

Before you rush into changing HSF, I'm wondering what kind of voltage your throwing at the CPU? You may be able to take it down a notch or 2, lowering your temp. while still keeping stability.

Can you post a Screen-Shot of CPU-Z

i tried doing that,move down a notch of volt, and run p95, about few sec, it reboot itself, only i can get stable when is @ 1.425v on 3.9ghz, but high temp. 58-60oC

now i changed it to 3.8ghz. multiplyer @ x18 , FSB @ 212, @ stock voltage.
full on load temp: 46-50, prime95 on blend test for 15 hour.

im gonna get a extra fan for my TX3 and adjust my 3.8ghz again at 3.9ghz or 4ghz, and ill tell u the result.

@1.425 is not all that high for the temps. your getting. Running 2 fans might be the solution. If not take Buzznut's advice and take a look at the site he posted.
Be sure and get all the dimensions specked out to make sure the one you choose will fit in your case and clear the memory, if a second fan doesn't work out.
