Sounds like to upgrade cooler for your cpu, my 3200+ runs at 35-40c when daoc running. 2500+ should be as cold i think.

AMD's easily hit 50+ degrees; nothing to worry about. Like Nadhia said: make sure you have enough cooling in the summer though.

My AMD Athlon Thunderbird runs at an average of 68°C and there has never been a single problem with it for about 2 years. It also makes my room hot and cosy so I don't need to use any radiators! xD

Anything below 65 is fine for the barton

If your cpu is less than 50 degrees C when playing DAOC, then it's time to overclock :D
