On my opinion, if it's a stock heatsink those temperatures are ok. Many people have huge aftermarket coolers which make the CPU run much more cooler than the stock cooler, so they may say your temps are high although there's no problem with them.

I also have the 5600+ Brisbane CPU. I am using stock heatsink and fan, it idles at 40 degree C and under load goes upto 100 degree C. System also shuts down most of the time when its under load. I contacted amd customer care and they suggested to reaply the thermal paste.
I have later added 3 more chassis fan to my system and the temps are still in the high 90s under load. My CPU fan and heatsink is clean no dust accumulation. I read that amd heatsinks come with high performance thermal paste pre-applied, so wiill re-applying thermal paste do me any good. Can this be any hardware problem with the cpu. I ran orthos and some other stress software and all of them shows error in under 2 minutes.

EbiN, The errors are most likely the result of the overheating. It is possible that the heatsink is not mounted properly. Remove the heatsink and remove the old thermal paste then apply new thermal paste and reinstall the heatsink. Do not run the computer with those temps, shut it down if the temps go above 60-65C.

Have a look in the bios, if you can manually set the cpu voltage set it to the recomended voltage, as sometimes the mobo will overvolt the processor if left on auto
Also make sure your chip is seated correctly to the motherboard and theres no bent or missing processor pins
My mate had some missing pins and he fried his processor

I would never trust the thermal paste that comes with the stock coolers, i always use my own, i would recomend Ocz freeze, its the best stuff that i have used

What motherboard have you got?

My problem solved...It turned out the culprit was the mobo. I had ASUS M2N-MX SE PLUS... I took my pc to to my supplier and they said its the error of mobo they replaced my mobo with M2N68-AM.

There should be a new sticky somewhere - M2N series boards from Asus do NOT play well with high-end 5x00+ or any 6x00+ CPUs!

Just to add my 50 cents here.

I upgraded from a 4600 X2 to a 5600 X2. I installed the AMD supplied Heat sink and my fans were loud and my CPU was running at 55 C. I said screwed it and installed my HP stock CPU that came with my 4600, and my CPU idles at 40 C and on heavy loads runs at 45 C MAX. What a POS the AMD supplied Heatsink-Fan is.

Just put your old Heatsink with new thermal compound and make sure you clean it well

I have the Athlon X2 5600+CPU. First I used stock heatsink and fan, still, even being idle, CPU temperature went upto 70 degree C and then the system shut down. I thought the problem was with the heatsink and the fan and installed another one, Cooler Master CK8-8JD2B-OL-GP. Still the CPU keeps heating upto 75 degree and it shuts down. The heatsink heats up much, too. I re-applied thermal paste but it didn't help.
The mobo is MSI K9N Neo V3, the power supply is Hipro HP-P4507F5W, 400 W.

Not that iam an expert but i was having the same issue with mine and it was that the mobo did not support it at all go to start window properties and see if the OS know what cpu it is if not then most likly you needa new mobo.Also if your Computer is from a 3rd party like Hp Dell etc. then check there web site and find out what mobo they used for you pc or call them and see if they know if your mobo can take that cpu and if not what kind if any Check my post

The same problem here. Athlon 64 X2 5600+ CPU, GIGABYTE mobo, but the problem started 1 month ago. Till then everything was ok. I do not remember temperature values 1 month ago but I remember not hearing the cpu fan rotating. Now I can hear it very loud! I bought a new one but nothing changed. Temperature reaches 85 degrees very easy.

Heat, heat, heat and more heat... sounds like a plain and simple air flow problem. What happened about a month ago? Summer came around!! Why does the fan spin faster? Cuz it's too hot! How do I try and get temps down inside the case? Get the heat out!
