Phenom II 965 3.6ghz high temp?

Hi guys! I have my Phenom II 965 at 3.6ghz at 1.35v. Currently I idle at around 34-36c and with prime 95 i get to 48-50c. Is that ok temps? I'm running with a thermaltake frio with push pull config both at max and i used arctic mx-3. Am I looking at good temps? Ambient is roughly 22-25c. Shouldn't it be lower? Thanks in advance guys.

    Those are good temps, you can follow my quest for lower temps on this thread:

    At stock voltage and 3.8 GHz on a Phenom II X4 955 BE, I'm getting 30c idle and up to 62c load. I'm currently running a Cooler Master Vortex Plus, just a step above the stock cooler and the same ambient temp.

    I'm trying out 1.3715 V right now and running Prime95 and Furmark for maximum heat and I'll be updating my thread, and I'll update here.
  2. Thanks man, guess I'll be posting on your thread so we can maximize space so it were. Good luck to us all. =D

  4. Here's an update for you drexeus, I ran my 955 at 3.6 GHz at 1.3715 V for 13 hours on Prime 95 while I went to work. Here are the results and a screenshot for any non-believers:

    Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.6 GHz (1.3715 V, set manually in the BIOS)
    Dual Sapphire 5750 Vapor-X @ 870/1300 MHz
    Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
    4GB (2x 2 GB) G.Skill 1600 MHz Ripjaws @ 7-8-7-24 (1.65 V)
    Cooler Master Vortex Plus
    Assortment of 4 120mm fans, 2 on front, 2 on side
    90mm exhaust fan

    Running Prime95 for 13 hours, I am getting the following temps:

    CPU @ 57 C
    Motherboard @ 45 C

    And after letting it idle for 10 minutes with Google Chrome open to type this, I was getting the following temps:

    CPU @ 34 C
    Motherboard @ 32 C

    What exactly are your goals?

    Your overclock is not a temperature problem at all, especially at 1.35v, you've got to go higher than that for temperature to be an issue with a 965.
