according to amd, the max temperature for the CPU is 62C

http://products.amd.com/en-us/Deskt...2=&f3=&f4=&f5=&f6=&f7=&f8=&f9=&f10=&f11=&f12=

65C is ok also just don't get into the 70's

PS be sure to prime 95 test the CPU for at least 8 hours (24 hours recommended, you can do other stuff while the 24 hour test is going)

The phenom's have a problem when overclocking, you can get them to a high clock speed and pass a 8 hour prime 95 test but during a 24 hour test, if the overclock is not 100% stable you will see a problem like you will be working on something and the PC suddenly freezes 100% the mouse wont move, the keyboard wont respond and you need to do a hard reset.

Don't count your CPU as 100% stable until you do a 24 hour test, the last thing you want is for the pc to freeze while typing up a report or freeze after 10 hours of rendering a 3d model just to have to start all over because it froze.

First of all, does the system pass any stability test at that speed?

Next idle temp should be in the low 30s with max at 55-60C; no higher. As an example my overclocked 965 [running @4.0] idles at 32C or so and gets to 55C while running prime95.

Remember there is NO safe overclock. Do not overclock with parts you cannot afford to replace.
