My cores idle at about 35 degrees...Seems hot to me from what I read about other people. Could it be how I applied the grease? It seems that the cooler is on tight enough. Is this maybe just normal? Looking to overclock since I didn't cheap out on anything I bought, though I want to make sure I am getting maximum cooling first. What temps are considered dangerous? Thanks guys.

It seems normal to me. 10-14 degrees above room temperature is typical for me. This is about 3 degrees above the internal case temperature. Yes, my room is hot.
