>.> AMD desktop heat? I had a 955BE and it ran cool as hell. Only around 55C overclocked and max temp on 955BEs is 62C. My 2600k at 4.8 on air would hit mid 70c. Anyways the new AMD cpus seem to be fairly good. They have a decent competitive chip on their hands but the big thing is base clock is 4Ghz vs the 3770k at 3.5Ghz.
