Normal CPU temps

I recently installed my Megahalems and now I am wondering about my CPU temps.

I am running an i7-930@3.5ghz vcore 1.2v. My idle temps average 40c while load temps are 55c. (Ambient ~23c)

Is it normal for idle temps to be that high while load temps are that low (IMO)? Or are those normal ranges?

I was hoping to OC the CPU more, do I need to worry about high idle temps or are the load temps the only thing to really worry about?

  1. Seems fine to me, nothing to really worry about yet. Do you have EIST, C1E, C States all enabled?
  2. Yes they are enabled.
