Thanks Jake_HT...
Those temps are running Prime95 like it says..
at stock my temps are only 36-40 at idle
I am going to start OC'ing but I want to install Windows 7 first..
Any tips for OC'ing have you raised cpu voltage at all or ram voltage?

I have the same motherboard as you, and RealTemp is most accurate for me. Plus at stock speeds, you shouldn't be seeing anything in mid 60's.. at 100% load at 3.8Ghz I'm just hitting 70c on air.
And yes those temps are okay. You've got lots of headroom coming out of the 50's..
