OK,Every one seems to be talking about how th FX5800 overheats.but i have Yet to see mine hit above 55C,And thats Overclocked at 483/967MHz.normally when its not over clocked it stays below 45C.Im not sure but i think my version was revised i have ASUS V9900/TD.The fan doesnt look like the other FX5800 it looks more like a 5900.I wanted to know waht type of temps anybody else with a 5800 are geting ?

Its the Ultra version that has the problems. The default core speed for that is 500Mhz, and I think it has a slightly higher voltage to allow for this which makes it a lot hotter. The memory is also clocked at a default of 1000Mhz.
