aarrrgghh now that's more familiar, I guess I was looking back to my old QX to much. coz it used to idle mid 20s at stock and it shooted all the way up to 40+ being only at 3.8. not that i was expecting the 2.6K to idle the same temp as my QX, it's just coincidental that my QX idles mid 20s at stock and my 2.6K idles around mid 30s at 4.5 which lead me to expect lower temps which is mid 20s because of my knowledge that 1555 runs alot cooler. hope that made sense lol.

Noctua NH-C14 CPU Cooler Review

Noctua Intel LGA775/1156 Heatsink Temperature Comparisons - NH-C14 FrostyTech Review

Noctua NH-C14 CPU Cooler Review. Page 5 - X-bit labs

considering a little while back, 40/50 C idle was normal
thanks for digging the links, i actually never saw the Frosty's review on it. was aware of the other two but since they used different cpus I didn't think it'd be valid to compare.

with case open, ambient around 20. maxed out at 69 and closed 75 tops. this is with IntelBurnTest by the way, 6114MB 10 runs. used IBT with my old rig and it's rock solid.

So you are idling around 30 degrees on a OC'ed CPU, without knowing more details, i'll say you are in the ballpark, not worry about it, enjoy your PC.
i'm actually just tryin to achieve as much oc as possible while being rock solid. but i'll whip out the stock cooler actually even tho it's crap lol, at least somethin to compare to coz u made a fundamental point of oc that i should of considered from the very start. every setup oc different and i need to find out mine.
