My System Specs

Default Q6600 Idle Temperatures

Hi all,

I just built my new rig (here's the thread) and I am somewhat concerned about the temperature of the Q6600, which is running at aroung 46-50 C at normal use...

Specs in my sig.

Should I wait for the Arctic Silver 5 to cure? Should I lap? (This would entail pretty much disassembling the entire rig to get the heatsink off. I should have made a hole in the mobo tray for easy heatsink removal...hmm.)

I'm pretty sure the heatsink is tightened down nicely...

EDIT: Sig's not working so here are specs:
Case - Antec 900
Mobo - Asus Maximus Formula
CPU - Q6600
RAM - OCZ ReaperX HPC PC28000 1000MHz (still waiting)
PSU - Coolermaster Exteme Power 650W
HD1 - Western Digital Raptor 150GB
HD2 - Western Digital SE16 500GB SATA2 7200RPM
Sound - Creative Labs Sound Blaster XtremeGamer Fatal1ty
Heatsink - Thermalright Ultra120
Monitor - Samsung SyncMaster 245B 24IN Widescreen 1920x1200
OS - Vista Ultimate 64-bit
