I recently took the plunge and bought Windows 7 for my new i7 based PC.

I have seen a lot or poeple asking questions about CPU temps for the i7 920 and so far have recored 32/33 across all four cores.

I used MX2 and wanted to know what results everyone else was getting with either AS5 or MX3

The variance is going to be at most, maybe, depending on what kind of cooler you have, two degrees. The variance is pretty much negligible, unless you use cheese as your TIM.

It sounds like you're quoting idle temperatures, and those are perfectly reasonable. The real test comes when your system is fully loaded running a program such as Prime95.
