Well right now Im running it stock with 4th core unlocked.

Have a few questions.

At what temp should I start worrying? When I was playing the BFBC2 demo, CPU was hitting 60-63*C.

And

Would it be worth the money to upgrade to a Phenom II X4?

Rig is sig.


Thanks

Get a new cooler. That's too high at stock. I just grabbed a OCZ Vendetta 2 and can run mine Athlon II x4 630@3.6. Idles at 31, load 43. It can hit 3.7-8 but there is no benefit with my GPU. Keep the athlon and se how much the 6 core Thuban is going to be.

My CPU runs everything fine.

I like my Hyper 212+. $24 at microcenter if you have one nearby.
