Hey guys

I got my AMD phenom x2 550 black edition unlocked to four cores and overclocked to 3.4. I have a GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H motherboard and on idle both are running really hot.

The CPU is running at 52 C and the mobo is at 62 C on idle. If I have running heavy programs it can get up to 60+ and close to 80 C for the motherboard.

I am using a stock cooler and two 120mm antec case fans. Any suggestions on how I can decrease the temp, especially for the board, which is always running hot. What would be the best CPU cooler.

Thanks

Get CoreTemps and double check?

How much are you willing to spend BTW?

CoreTemps doesn't give me a reading but I have used other monitors and they have given the same reading. I would say I would spend probably 50-60 bucks.

Here is a screener with HWINFO32, I have no idea what Temperature 3 is.
