I've seen my Core i5 running at 25C. Is that normal? Is that good? I'm not using any special cooling. I have a NZXS Blackline case which has 4 fans. And I'm also using the stock heatsink for the Core i5.

You must be at stock frequency. The idle temp of my i5@3.6GHz is 30C ;p

In "MY" opinion, you had better keep it within 10% of the stock clock.

easily 300-400mhz with stock cooling.
Or even more if load temps are good.
