My System Specs

Default

Quote:
mine at idle is around 38-40c and at load is 52c at 4ghz, i have a lapped true with a cheap CM blue led fan on it
Same Temps without lapping...Zalman 9700.....I'm certainly not a fan of the benefits of Lapping in most cases..the extra (or in some cases as mine vs the above quote no benefits), isn't worth the risk.

idel temps mean nothing the 45nm dts sensor is 100% accurate at max temp only. it's a sliding scale down under 50c most off a bit a lot of 45nm chips will never read belowe 30c. load is all that matters
+1 ^^^^^ - Idle really is meaningless (the E8400's are also infamous for "stuck sensors" which will produce useless Idle Temps)
