    ROFL I assume it's C, unless he's got some WC running.

    hmm if its C then your lookin at a slight problem. thats about 110 F and you dont wanna go above 115, but AMD's tend to be hotter... better cpu fan and heatsinc could maybe help. as for overclocking your gonna want that temp alot lower.

    The latest intels run much hotter than AMD... And they're good to about 60-70 degrees C

    I Agree. The 3000+'s die temp is 85C, running ~65C shouldn't hurt anything (although it's not ideal). 50C isn't anywhere near dangerous, it's just higher than most people like. I'd say if your loading more than 50C then don't expect to overclock alot or add lots of voltage. A simple copper cooler and powerful fan should drop you alot, and there only ~$30 depending on what brand and all that.
