Hey guys, im fairly new to building computers and i just built a new one using the i7-950 with the Corsair h50 Aftermarket cooler. In BIOS when i first boot my comp it says my CPU is at 38C. When i open Realtemp/Coretemp as of right now my readings are at 38C 37C 39C 33C. When i open up Speedfan it has the same readings for the cores but the temp next to CPU says 30C. When Looking at my CPU temps do i go by core temps or the temp next to CPU. Also are these temps safe at idle. I dont really push my CPU to much and i ran prime 95 for about 30 mins and the hottest core temp was around 65C and temp next to CPU (on speedfan) was at 50C. Are these temps safe?


Spec:
ASUS Sabertooth x58
i7-950
6gb DDR3 XMS3 1600
500gb WD HDD
GTX 460 SC FTW
HAF 932

65c is ok under full load. Those i7's run warmer than most cpus. I believe Intel's spec is around 70c (max).
