Ambient room temperature is actually quite chilly, it's in a basement room and I get pretty cold down there, I'd estimate between 15 to 20 degrees celsius.

...it's just that I was really anticipating some good overclocking but I'm not willing to go ahead with it at 40 degrees idle
What are you using to check your temps?. I have the same CPU,MB and cooler as you excrpt my quad is overclocked to 2.93. Under load Realtemp shows 43 43 52 52, HWMoniter shows each about 5* higher with ambient around 25*. Can't tell the idle temps as my cpu and gpu Fold 24/7. Also my case is missing the top 140mm tricool [It broke when my computer got knocked over]...
