E6600 with Ultra 120 Extre and P180 case

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.

  2. do you have the 120 ultra extreme?
  3. Yeah, and both my IHS on the Q6600 and the base of the ultra-120 extreme. See pics and temp graphs in those two threads.
  4. 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.
