Cpu temp question Tags: Heatsinks Cooling Overclocking Last response: November 26, 2011 1:04 PM in Overclocking Share dax88 November 26, 2011 12:37:57 PM I am running an i7 950 (no overclock) with a corsair A70 cooler attached. The case is a powermac aluminum tower that I modded to fit ATX. there is so much airflow. (lots of other case fans, exhaust, etc) question is - my idle temps on the CPU are 32 ~ 36c. Under load Im at 50c ~ 60c. I have reapplied the paste and resat the cooler 3 times and it is still the same. I know these temps are well within operationg range, but the idle seems high to me, as I have read that many other people with idles of 22c ~ 26c on this processor with air cooling. Is there something wrong? Or am I worrying about nothing?
