1.44V ended up buying new thermal paste and its keeping temps at 51-52 under prime95 for around an hour

Voltage is a little high but even that the temps still good. Is Fully stable in games?

That is a nice OC... not the furthest you might be able to push things, assuming that you could find a way to get the cooling situation a bit more ideal. Those temps aren't bad, but having a bit of history with Athlon chips, I don't think I'd consider temps ideal either. What specific model cooler are you using? Do you have the case and cooler fans running at 100%, or are they set to vary dependent on temps?
