Hey guys I'm about to fire up my new build here. Just wanted to know what you guys think is the normal operating temps and the max temp for a amd phenom 9600 processor? I have two cpu fans that i'm going to test out . (artic cooling 64 low profile cooler and the stock cpu fan that came with the black edition). By the way the fan that came with the 9600 black edition was massive! I was shocked that it came with one as the website that i bought it from said that it didn't come with one!!
