    I don't see how anyone can be having problems with heat with them, I have a 1800+ running with a Volcano 6+. I have overclocked it to a 1900+ and it still never got over 40 degree Celcius. They must not be applying the heat sink, or fan correctly to be making that much heat.

    you ever consider the locations of ppl's computer or:

    room temp
    air conditioning
    where they live
    what kinda case they have
    if they have case fans at all

    put your computer in my room....take out the case fans......see how good your heatsink keeps temps below 40:)
