My System Specs


I've got a TRUE with a 2000RPM Scythe Ultra Kaze on it.
My case has 4 x 120mm fans (1 rear, 1 top, 1 bottom, 1 lower-front).
Right now my i7 is OC'd to 3.5GHz... room is 23c.
Idle temps are approx 32c to 35c across all cores.

As linus mentioned, check your load temps.
If they're ok, then it's likely not a big deal.

If it's still too hot, try increasing your case airflow a little.
It really can make a big difference sometimes.
If that doesn't work you may want to try reseating the heatsink.

What kind of TIM was used, do you know?
Could just be that it needs to cure a little.
If that's the case, you should see your temps drop a little over the next week or two.
