    This board supports "AMD Cool ´n´ Quiet! Technology " .. Is this not working?

    It should monitor system operation and automatically adjusts CPU voltage and frequency for a cool and quiet environment.

    Are you worried about your temps ?

    Is your machine having problems ?

    Most folk don't bother about their temps.

    You dont mention what case your using. Does it have a fan at the year ?
    Try to make sure the heatsink fan is exhausting towards the case's rear fan, if it has one and make sure that is set to exhaust too.

    Then your thermal paste. Was this a good quality one and how much did you use and how did you apply it ?

    Have you had chance to monitor your temps yet ?

    you have to worry about your temps when building your own PC. if you buy the computer pre-manufactured and it's under warranty you don't have to worry.

    stock coolers are fine, get arctic silver and apply it according to the instructions and seat the heatsink/fan properly. then monitor temps. under 60c under load is ok

    A CPU has no and I say no normal temperature, its depending on what are you doing on your computer. It will produce more heat. gaming create a lot of heat, browsing computer it self does not create more heat.
