Hi all,

I'd love to know all you guys' i5s 2500k's temperatures at idle and at full load.
Please list the temp monitor software you're using and your ambient room temperature.

My i5 @4.4GHz
Zalman 9500 HSF
Tested and monitored with P95 and Realtemp

28C - 32C idle
62C - 66C full load
25C room temperature

Is it good? bad? normal?

HSF = Arctic Freezer 13
CPU = i5-2500k @ 4.6GHz

Idle Temps: 28-33
Load Temps: 64-67
Room Temp: About 20 degree's

Your temps look very normal/average. Idle always seems to be around 30 and load around 65 with a good HSF/and or Over-clock

EDIT: Temps monitored with HWMonitor and used PRIME95 to get full load temps.

Wow, your temps are awsome. If I OC it to 4.6, it will probably hit 70C or 72C. BTW, I have Zalman 9500. Almost got the same one you have but I need something low for my mid tower case. I think I'll look for a better board from ASUS.
