I need to buy some thermal paste to try this. Is Arctic Silver 5 good enough or is the new Antec MX-2 a better buy? Most thermal paste, I would have to order and I thought if I am ordering online, I'd get the Corsair cooler in case this doesn't reduce the temps enough. I agree, 30C or less sounds about right for this cpu with aftermarket cooling.
MX 2 beast AS5 , if you can find some MX4, or OCZ freeze.
