Don't worry too much about the heat, just get an aftermarket cooling solution it works better. AMD would not have released the processors without adequate cooling by their stock coolers. Many of the AMD processors, once they get over a clock speed of about 2.4GHz., are 95W or 125W. The Phenom 8750 Toliman 2.4GHz.
processor does operate at 95W. Many socket AM2+ motherboards can be flashed to allow for socket AM3 CPU's when they are released. All of the Phenom II line, along with the yet-to-be-released "Propus" Athlons, with the exception of the quad core Phenom II AM2+ processors and the 945, will operate at 95W. This is due, I hope, to AMD's transition to 45nm.
