That would be highly dependent on what case and fans you are using. In a relatively good airflow case, i would guess around 40 - 50 idle & 60 - 80 load... The reason i have given such ballpark figures is because it really depends on a lot more than the cooler itself.

But with that CPU i suggest and i'm sure everyone one else on TOMS will as well an after market cooler.

...and it will depend if you are overclocking and by how far. shel0139 is correct - the stock cooler is ok - without overclocking. The Core2Quad Extremes will run up to 100C before the over temp kicks in and throttles them back. A good max temp would be 80-90C - but that dpends on your case getting rid of that heat fast...

I would overclock my C2Q until I hit a constant 80-85C on a benchmark.

Also the stock cooler is a little slow on spinning up and typically waits until 80-90C before spinning up (keep noise levels down).

An aftermarket fan will dissipate the heat faster and run quieter ...
