My OC'd Deneb 965 never ran close to 55C with modest cooling.
What exactly is your situation where you think that 55C is some thermal issue?
To me cases of overheating of AMD Athlon XP 2000+ AX2000DMT3C and AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ ADA6000CZBOX processors are known for. Therefore I want to avoid problems.
As noted in my other responses, the OEM HSF is fine for any AMD CPU unless you have some case airflow issues. AMD actually tests these HSFs and knows that they keep the CPU within the desired maximum operating temp - unless you have some case airflow issue that needs to be addressed.
It's not unusual at all to find false or misleading technical information on the Internet. You should take all of this information with a large grain of salt.
It doesn't matter what the CPU/APU TDP is, the OEM HSF has sufficient cooling capacity to properly cool it. If you are actually having overheating issues then you need to find the real issue instead of condeming perfectly fine CPUs/APUs because you don't understand the cause of the overheating.
To be clear NONE of the AMD CPUs/APUs overheat with the OEM boxed HSF unless your PC has some airflow issue that needs to be resolved. Any normal, reasonable PC case and ambient conditions will not result in the CPU/APU overheating - regardless of some misinformed posts you might read online.
Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.
