whats the appropriate temps people are seeing with a heatpipe cooler at 4.5 ghz?
I'm averaging 80C but pushing up to 83C then dropping back to 80-83C while running Prime95 64bit for 8 threads.
Idle temps range around 35C.

This thing is Rock Solid. I have PLL CPu Overvoltage turned OFF.
And I have VRM Spread spectrum turned off.

Those temps are definitely on the warm side -- I recommend 75ºC Prime95 peak core temps as the maximum for an everyday overclock.
