    exactly. Hence the m3 technology and 2x less power consumption/heat

    It's possible it does simly run that hot, mine in a case runs about 52 degrees celsius. It should be fine, and use the hundreds you saved over the P4 to buy a nice LCD.....

    Which is kinda my point since my desktop is a P4 3.0GHz OCed to 3.3GHz and is running 25 degrees C cooler than the AMD

    Depends on the AmD Processor you got. But 80 deg c is the max number I believe. But at 65deg c on other dies. just go check out the spec sheet for your specific processor. 65 deg seems hot though. i'm running a 2000+ and averaged maxed 63 with an average of 50 in the middle of the summer. but must admit, was using cpuidle to help cool the proccessor which did lower my temps a good 10deg c.

    75C is waay too hot for sure. I'm suprised it's stable. Try replacing the thermal compound with a quality one such as Arctic Silver.

    Yea, definitely try to reseat the heatsink on the processor with new compound. 75 is very high, no matter what, you got some serious cooling issues. Not feeling the 12mm Fans either. Sounds like too little airflow. I would consider upgrading to a 3.5" fan that would be able to output atleast 50cfm if not more.

    try to slow down the fan if you move air too fast across a heat sink it will not disapate / absorb the heat. also try a larger heat sink with a smaller cfm fan
    or a fresh air intake duct from out side of case to feed just the cpu.
