Hey guys i just bought the Coolermaster v8 cooler hoping to get amazing temps in like the 20c's but right now im idleing at 49c is that right? i have artic silver 5 on there did i apply it wrong?. and im overclocked to 3.62Ghz 1.55v 18xmult. also what OC would you recommend with this cpu/cooler?

Well First off your exceeding the maximum voltage the processor can take,
Which will dramatically shorten its life and creates alot of heat.
why the heck do u have the voltage so high?????? are u new to overclocking?

i have the thermaltake armor mx case it has an intake in front exhaust in back it use to have a fan on door but V8 wouldnt allow it to close. so i dismounted it and put it on the outside very slopy but works and that pushes air into the case. and i put a circle like a dime of artic sliver 5 or w.e its called and i just put cooler ontop i was told u dont need to spread it.

Wow... High voltage.... I have my AMD Phenom II X4 940 at 3.7GHz on a 1.42V (multi x 18)... temps 40c idle and 58+ load...

Lower your voltage to 1.432, set multi x 18 and use OCCT program to see if its stable...
