Normal temps for a Phenom II x4 965 w/ H212+?

I recently installed a Phenom II x4 965 into a CM690 II advanced case, and added a CM Hyper 212 plus heatsink with included TIM on to the CPU. The 965 is OC'd to 3.8GHz with a voltage of 1.45. The ambient room temperature is 22 degrees. The case only has stock fans (140mm intake, 140mm exhaust on top, 120mm exhaust on back).

So, with all of this I'm seeing ambient temperature of 35 degrees with a maximum Prime95 temp of 51 degrees. Are these temperature normal for this case/heatsink? I'm certainly not concerned with them, and they're much better than the temps I was getting with my last case and the stock heatsink (42 idle/62 max). I'm just wondering if these are the expected temperatures, or if I messed up installing the heatsink.

For reference, I used the two lines method of applying TIM, spread some into the little gaps, and checked the contact. It seemed to spread quite evenly. The 212 has its intake fan facing the front of the case, and I think I have the mounting bracket a very fair bit of force.

Thanks for answers in advance!

That's perfect the max for you is like mid sixtys for intel a bit higher.

Your idle is a little higher then average but it's probably just because your overclocked and room temp

Hi.

At least that you have a C2 revision, that voltage is pretty high for 3.8GHz.

What mobo do you have?, slow down the voltage and test again, your idle temps should be a little better and load temps too. 55ºC or below in load is safe to go.

I believe it's the C3 (125w) edition. My mobo is the M4A88TD-M/USB3. The lowest 8-hour Prime95 stable vcore I could get was 1.45.

I'm using stock cooler, temperature reading results using "Core Temp" when I'm playing COD4 Modern Warfare etc..

Min: 37ºC
Max: 51ºC

What can you say guys, normal?
