Those temps sound fine to me. Don't use the quad nozzle as it only improves the temperature on 65nm quads, the die size of 45nm is smaller so the high pressure areas actually miss the die. IIRC, the best size to use with 45nm quads is the 4.5mm nozzle from the V1 (works with the V2 as well).

^^^ Seconded ^^^

Temps are right where they should be, I'd say. And the quad nozzle has a lousy track record with the 45nm procs.
