Hi, all. Running the above mentioned CPU with stock heat sink and stock speed (3.4ghtz). My question is, should I worry about my temperatures that I'm about to mention.

Idle 35c
Playing games 50-59c (gta 4 gave me the 59c, other wise it's low 50's for gaming)
Streaming games with xsplit such as Minecraft, SC2, or D3 54-57c
5 minutes of p95 - 62-64C Sits on 63c

I have read that AMD increased the max temp for this chip to 65c for the black edition.
Tjmax is 99c according to coreTemp

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Also, if my temps are okay by y'all's standards, that's cool with me.

However, if you recommend an aftermarket HS, my specs are rosewill CHALLENGER case..and M4A88T-V EVO mobo. Thanks!

Your temperatures are perfectly fine, you just may need to replace your TIM but that's it :) 

Here's my recommendation, however. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Performs EXTREMELY well for it's price point and it'll fit your case.


You can see in that picture there that my X4 955 OC'd did not even get past 50C+ :)  (ambient 25C)
