Default Those temps seem way too high

I have easily overclocked my i7-3820 to 4.625 gHz with the settings you have listed but my CPU temp never exceeds 40 degrees celsius. I too have the Corsair H80 with fans on High. My idle temp is 24 degrees. I am using the Corsair 600T case (200mm fans front and top) but have gone with CoolerMaster Excalibur fans on the H80. Using 4 sticks of Corsair memory at 1600mHz. I love this CPU; I waited 9 weeks for the i7-3930 but never could find one anywhere. I was disappointed at first to have to settle for this chip. Now I am very surprised at its performance for almost half the $$$
