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.
thanks for's good to know.... I'm about on par with those temps too. when i ran stock cooler when i first got it it would hit about 60c on full load and i didn't want to go higher then that with oc ing cause i read that Intel max is like 64.5 for these cpu's....i would be more comfortable with a 400x9 with lower temps. thanks i will try both ways for a bit and see what that's like.

OH sry one more question are your temps different on each core on full load. i realize not all cores are always even loaded but i did some movie trans coding and all for cores where maxed out and there was a 6 degree difference between all four cores. core1 was like 47, core 2 41c core 3 43 and core 4 43c.

i also noticed this with the stock cooler too.
