E6600 high core temp

Last response: in CPUs

I have read the posts on the forum: and they seem most relevant to me. My cpu temp is in the high 30s and my core temps run in the mid 50s (15 degrees higher). I had bought a heat-sink with pre-applied thermal grease. Took this off and reapplied Arctic Alumina. It only dropped the cores a couple of degrees (I use core temp to measure). I do not overclock. My speedfan readings are: CPU0 Fan 2377 RPM. Is this fast enough? Thanks in advance for any advice.

mid 30c at idle and mid 50c is fine, a bit warm but not anything unusual. Plus you said they dropped a few degrees with the new heat sink.
