Hi FallOut99, welcome to THW.

First, there is no need to create two threads with the same exact question 2min apart. If it was an accidental double post then dissregard that.

What is the ambient temp your PC will be dealing with?

With the Intel's, they usally run cooler than AMD chips, as for the i5-760 it can go up to 100C before it shuts down. IMHO, You never want to run it near or to that temp though, just for reliabilty sake. As for AMD temps I do not know alot about them specifically and cannot say how much heat the AMD can handle. As for which one handels the heat better I cannot say, but your best bet is to get a chip that runs the coolest in the first place.

I'll post this on your other thread just incase so you see it either way.

check out :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_CPU_power_dissipation

Core i5-750 - Thermal Design Power : 95 W ( I believe i5-760 is the same)
Phenom II X4 965 BE - Thermal Design Power : 125 W
All else being equal higher Thermal Design Power means higher temperature.

IMHO though I do believe you should consider an aftermarket CPU cooler (other than the stock cooler)
especially if you're in a hot place, unless you're on a really tight budget.

Nice find on the specs, but I belive that the Phenom II X4 965 is 140w, I would say go with the i5-750 or 760 any day of the week. I also agree with you about the cooler but figured he was set on not buying one, but for ~$20 to $30 you can buy a VERY nice CPU cooler that will perform much better.

There is a newer version (C3 stepping) that's 125w for the 965. The 970 is 125w as well.

What are you using the build for? If you aren't going to be gaming, editing, ect, than an i3 would work fine for basic normal use and run cooler as well.
