    48c idle, 55c on load - which is prob a lot to do with my case and airflow - but a great improvment over the stock cooler

    and u Joe42?

    See sig for specs/oc.
    45 load, although my arctic silver seems to be curing, as its at 42 right now.
    Thats with one very slow 120mm fan in front and and one at the back of the case.
    When i get it up to 2.5 with more volts, it was hitting 47.

    My cpu is never idle, as its folding for the team, and so should yours be!

    I'm going to try and get to 2.6 soon, and it will probably be near 50 at load then.

    They take 65 before you're even close to thermal shut down.

    yes we know that, but surely most of us are trying to keep the temps as low as possible (as in paying out extra for a very good heatsink, etc)

    I've yet to see 48°C load let alone idle?

    It's prob a lot to do with air flow in my case, I've got a crappy biege case crammed with a pair of oc'd 7800 512's that throw a lot of heat up into the top of the case. :(
