Hi,
I recently built my own computer and used an i5 2500k intel processor.
When I enter the Asus p6z68-v pro bios it reads that the cpu is running anywhere from 50c-55c

The Case is an Antec Dark Fleet DF-30

Is that too hot of a cpu?
BTW I'm running the stock heatsink with artic silver 5

too much thermal paste or HSF not seated properly? you only need an amount covering the cpu slug equal to the width of a peice of paper applied)

i've searched around and seen reports of idle temps from 25-40c -- are you using the IGP, i believe that will increase temps by 15c roughly.

~50c is normal in bios as the cpu is in full on state, it won't go to idle until you get into windows.
