Odd low temperature for a stock cooler?

I am currently running a 965 BE CPU at 3.7ghz with 1.4v. After playing Crysis 2 for an hour or more on Extreme/Ultra graphics, coretemp says it reaches 57 as the max temperature and that is with a stock cooler. It also is 33 idle. Until I invest in an aftermarket heatsink, would it be wise to test how much higher it could go or is 3.7 generally the max for this certain CPU under a stock cooler?

  3. Yeah a stress test got it to 61. So I am probably going to lower it to 3.6ghz and see how that does.
