Yeah those temps are fine.

What do you have that CPU overclocked too? And are you using an all in one water cooling solution like the Corsair H70 or Coolits, or are you using a custom loop system? I just have to ask cause I use the AMD 1090T OC'd to 4.1ghz and my temps never get that high. My idle temps are around 24c and under a full load they never reach 55c. Here is the video to prove it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4JVIGjRpR0.

PS. Just in case someone is going to say its all about the ambient room temp, my room is at 73f or 22.7c.

AMD Phenom II 1090t 4.2mhz | HD 6950 (soon Crossfire) | Asus Crosshair IV | 1tb WD C.Black | 128gb Corsair Performance 3 Series SSD (Raid 0) | 8gb Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600mhz | Corsair 1000w psu | Corsair H70 | Corsair 600t Special Edition White Case | Windows 7 Ult. | Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 2.1 Speakers | Corsair HS1 Headset

Nope for an amd it is not an ok temp, I also want to ask what kind of water cooling setup are you using, and your ambient temp? I'm also under the impression that amd's can't handle that kind of heat compared to intel. I have never owned an amd system but a couple of my friends does and they don't reach 70c, worst temp they get is 60-65c for a 4ghz OC and that is of course with a decent cooler and thermal adhesive.

71°C is OK. That is a survivable temp. However, it is high enough that a failure of the cooling system (e.g. pump failure) could cause a temp spike that would happen faster than the system could compensate for, and you could burn the chip. So it comes down to how much you trust your water cooling system.

Now, I haven't worked with the Phenom II X6 chips much in overclocking, but I've run X2's up to 4.5Ghz on air cooling, and have been cooler than what you are seeing. You may want to check your voltages, and make sure you are using a good thermal paste that is making good contact across the board.

Phairo makes a good point: what are you OCd to?

Yeah his temps should not be that high if he only doing minor overclocking (ie: 4ghz-4.6ghz) He may need to check his voltages and maybe take off his water block, clean the cpu and block head, and use good new thermal paste (ie: Arctic Silver or XIGMATEK PTI-G4512 thermal paste <--- I use that one) But as you said one slip with the cooling in his water block or pump malfunction and that cpu is fried.

The H70 is a great cooler for the 1055T. I do not see any problems using that cooler on that cpu.

The 1090t is a 125W draw, so temperature ranges should be well within the tolerances of the H70. Remember that overclocking changes draw and heat production, and this is a BE chip intended to be pushed, so BE CAREFUL!.

The 1100t is also 125W draw, so look for coolers that are rated above that level.

Well it is simple. Here is a short break down of the best cooling solutions for your Computer.

1. The best over all cooling solution for your PC for now is a Custom Water Loop. Depending on the amount of rads you use and cooling fans, you can maintain the lowest temps with a water loop system.

2. For the self contained water cooling solutions. Now this is just my opinion, but the Corsair H70 stands on top of this class. I have owned the Coolit Vantage ALC system, and the Corsair H70 kept my cpu under full load a whole 8c cooler. Now I have heard that the new Coolit FZE1C Freezone Elite is one hell of a cooler in this area. But it has a massive price tag.

3. Now on to forced air coolers (Fin Coolers) In my honest opinion the Noctua NH-D14 is the best all around. IF you have the chassis big enough to enclose this monster of a cooler, AND I mean it is huge. But the Noctua NH-D14 in prime95 test will cool even better than the Corsair H70. Also the Cooler Master V10 is a solid cooler, but also massive in size.

I hope this helps out some. You can find all the products above on Newegg.com, well all but the Coolit FZE1C Freezone Elite. You can google that and find it real easy.

I'm running a 1090T @ 4060Mhz~ idle @ 27*C and load 54*C (prime95, and I never reach that high while gaming ever)
gaming I'll reach 30-33*C

I use ZALMAN CNPS11X CPU Cooler and that's air cooling
