I5-2500k @ 4.5GHz - idle temps are too high.

I OC'd my 2500k to 4.5 GHz yesterday, changing ONLY the CPU ratio to 45 and my CPU VCore to 1.28. After checking my idle temps for a while (using a Zalman 9900Max with MX-4 TIM), they were staying at a steady 29-31c. However, I started my computer back up earlier and now my idle temps are up to 39-41c. Did some searching around and confirmed this is most likely too high, but I'm not sure exactly what the problem is.

Is there a certain setting that has to be enabled in BIOS that I missed?

the ambient temps were lower? if the room was cooler, the temps probabily were cooler too, and i don't think those idle temps aren't so bad for a 4,5 overclock, you need to see if the load temps are lower than < 80c, if they are nothing to worry about.
