i5 3570k idle temp

So I've build my first gaming pc and I'd like to know if 27C-28C is an ok idle temp.. I'm not sure I applied the thermal paste correctly.

    Yes, that sounds fine. Next you need to test its temp under full CPU load. Run prime95 and watch your temps.
  2. perfectly normal for idle
  3. Perfectly normal. That is a degree or two under mine.
  4. Ok thanks everyone. I'll run prime95 soon and hopefully get decent temps.
