Default E8400 Idle temps?

Im not sure whats up with this thing, but my lapped E8400 only tops out at 53c across the cores at 3.6ghz but at idle it runs at 35,40c... not sure if Im reading that wrong or what... Thats under a xiggy HDT 1283 with an aerocool 89cfm fan strapped to it. I know I have good coverage with my tim so thats not an issue...

Rj, what are your idle temps like in your old rig?
