Windows 7: Safe temps for Amd 965?

Safe temps for Amd 965?

I've read that the max temp for a AMD 965 is 62c

AMD Processors for Desktops: AMD Phenom

My current temps are sitting idle at above that (i think?), Can someone take a look at this and tell me if it looks very wrong?

Earlier when i had Sony Vegas rendering it was up to 72c +

To be honest the can take up to 85 degrees without too much of a proble it's if you reach over 90 degrees for long periods you should be worries. Though the lower temps the longer your hardware will last.

One of the intel series have a temp cap of 75 and after that your CPU will auto downclock.

After further looking into the problem, i think some of my ASUS mobo software has overclocked the stock speed from 3400 > 3600 for me somehow, and also turned up the voltages to much (i think)

Anyway i can undo this? or go into the bios and set it back to stock speeds?

My friend has the exact same computer as me (we built them together) and her CPU temps are almost 20c lower then mine, but hers is at 3400 Mhz as well though, which i would like to go back to if i can.

Every BIOS is different. So you need to know your Motherboard model to be able to google it and get a correct answer otherwise if you want to try and find it on your own it should be found in BIOS.

Just DON'T touch anything you are not familar with. So basicly don't do it without readin guides on it.
