What kind of temps is everyone with a Athlon 64 seeing? At idle, I'm seeing 42-44 Celcius. Coming from an Intel system, I don't know if this is normal or not. I have not witnessed it going above 50 in gaming or 3DMark, but I want to overclock it some, so I'm just checking.

Athlon 64 3500+ (Thermalright SLK48U and Vantec Tornado 92mm fan)
Abit A8V
Corsair XMS 1 GB dual channel PC3200
Radeon 9700 Pro
Audigy 2
PC Power & Cooling 510 Deluxe

Caseflow is adequate (2x80mm Tornados intake;1x80 Tornado, 1x20cfm slot cooler and 1x120mm Vantec Thermalflow exhaust)

Dunno what the average is for A64s, but generally speaking, for procs, those are good temps.

If you start hitting 50C+, then Id say you might want to look into a better cooling solution (different heatsink, higher CFM case fans, fan placement, etc).

It's the max, but you'll see problems before you hit 85C...

Not to mention, the lower the temp the better (well, to a certain extent).

That is a good temp.

I've got an AMD Barton 2500+ oc'ed by 100mhz that I can't seem to keep below 50C without removing the side of the case :(

I'm gonna shut this thing down for about an hour, I put in some AS5 yesterday and haven't shut it down since. From what I've read, the system needs to be shut down for a couple hours a day for the stuff to really work in. Then the temps should drop up to 5C.

Well, I ran SETI@Home while I was sleeping, and the temps worked their way back up to 50. Of course, the room was about 4-5 degrees warmer. I imagine SETI is a pretty CPU-intensive program though.

Try folding and see what happens:

That thing will suck all of your CPU power, I believe it will no matter how powerfull your CPU is. My CPU has been at 100% ever since I started folding, it's using 98% of my CPU all by itself.
