it's pretty warm in my apartment but at 3.3 so far on full load core temp never shows any core higher than 45/47c. i will run like that for a bit and maybe try upping fsb and going for 3.6 this weekend and try that for a bit. also maybe its my case cooling but my mobo gets pretty warm at 3.3.......when play crysis a bit yesterday it got up to 38c at one point but my pc is in my living room and i have the fireplace on........so its warmer than usual so maybe that might be it.
When gaming at 400x9 the highest I've seen the CPU go was about 52c and that wasn't with Crysis. Crysis only managed to get up to around 48c.
When I stress tested the CPU, again at 400x9, using Prime95 it got up to 63c max. It went to 66c at 400x10. I didn't try 333x10, but I did try stock (333x9) with Prime95 and I recall the max temp being around 45c during testing.
However, I've not run across any program other than the stress tests that get the CPU over 52c.
Room temperature was also around 25-26c at the time which was rather warm.
