This will sound stupid but it all depends on your Room temperature.

I mean if your room is a mere 5C (which I hope it isn't) then 35C load is very acheivable, I assume your meaning 'generally' in the context of the 23-29C room temperature many of us fall into.

I'd say your better of asking a question of temperature above ambient, for instance 35C load is the same as realistically 5-8C above ambient room temperature, and that would be very difficult to achieve with air. And nigh-on impossible with an 8045 regardless of airflow on the fan, and in retrospect in the case as well.

I managed 33C load with a 5C above ambient on a 1Ghz T-Bird at 1.33Ghz (1.85V) utilising an 8045, but that was on the brink orb noise and only a temporary solution. The Doctor advised I avoided long periods next to the PC due to the extent of the hearing damage that could be caused. :eek:

I would also remember that your temperature sensor is not 100% accurate too, its worthwhile to take that into account.

I'm sorry for the long confusing post but you can see what I'm getting at, in a Nutshell. The answer is no, but don't be disheartened. The 2200+ is very difficult to cool.

Good Luck,
