The idle temp is around 50-52°C and under heavy load they go up to 64°C (again, according to Everest). I have a spacious, well ventilated case with two powerful 120mm case fans and a HDD fan, and I used Arctic Silver thermal compound. I am also aware that these temperature readings may be LOWER than they actually are, due to the position of the sensor, which really worries me!
There was a comment on the site from which I bought the HSF saying that his temps were around 40°C under load - I am assuming (and hoping) he has a lower spec CPU!
Any cooling advice would be greatly appreciated.
