Well, what kind of processor cooling do you have? Stock? If it's not stock, then I can actually suggest getting a Phenom II X3 because that will be faster than your Phenom 1 Quad on PCSX2 as the emu doesn't support quad cores yet.

That's the heat sink I use too and it works extremely well for keeping the heat down on your CPU. I'd say get it if you're going to do any overclocking (assuming you wish to stick with air cooling). It's not too expensive either which is nice.

If anything, keeping the RAM from becoming underpowered (especially if you use 4 sticks) and Southbridge from overheating will pose larger challenges than the CPU overheating with one of those attached.

yeah it does job of keeping the cpu cool around 19 to 20 degrees pushing it goes no higher than 28 using hw monitor to keep up with temps. my mobo can hold up to AM3 socket which means i can upgrade to the highest AMD on the market.
