I didn't know of this resource a few days ago, but I wish I had. I just built my first PC, and spread the thermal paste with my finger. I did check temps in the bios and am steady hanging around 32 degrees C. Am I in trouble here?
That temp is cool for an idle CPU. Do stress test(Prime95, wPrime etc..) on the CPU and observe the temp by using H/W monitor, Real Temp etc. Cpu under full load should not go over 72.9 celsius.
