Re: I'm afraid to go over 55c....
What are you measuring the temps with? What are you using to load your CPU?
If I use the latest Prime95 to load the CPU and measure with Everest. Personally, I would start worrying if it went higher than 60C while running that test. But some people aren't bothered till closer to 70C. It depends on your willingness to push it I guess.
