    What's everyone running stock?

    My ambient temp is probably around 20'c

    Idle temps on computer is around 30'c and about 57'c when folding.

    Is it running a little hot? I've considered lapping it just incase

    Running stock cooler btw

    Coolermaster Elite 335 case - AMD X4 640 CPU

    Amd CPUs can handle up to about 65 degrees comfortably, so it's not to much of a problem. Idles maybe a little warm but not excessively, so no need to worry really.

    Its not so bad, and makes sense with stock cooler. Like mentionned 60-65 is really the high-end for these chips. Don't bother lapping whatsoever, if you're not happy with that get an aftermarlet cooler. My 955's never gone above 55C under full load @3.8GHz with a Hyper 212+ and it's a very very affordable cooler..

    I think that those temps are fine. My 965BE at 4GHz (cool 'n' Quiet still on) idles at 36 and under load will reach about 62 max, when i play gta 4 for hours it gets to 59/60:)

    I'm using a thermaltake frio with 2 enermax TB silence fans with a 1055t at stock. That idles at about 13 degrees and loads at 46 under prime.

    Ty, I'll consider upgrading the cooler. I know it's nice and safe but still a little too warm. Although it makes a nice heater in the winter instead of paying the gas bill :D

    36 deg at idle. 720 X3. Ambient's around 30? Tropics.

    Undervolted though with one of the ocz coolers. Looking at it, but still no idea.
