My idle temps were that before I got my CPU Cooler (Xigmatek Gaia sd 1283), so I think the CoreTemp is right but still not positive. | Report abuse rolli59 CPUs Master December 17, 2011 12:28:25 AM 18°C is equal to 64.4°F if you are colder than that with you ambient then I would be surprised. Rule of thumb is that idle temps with air cooler is 10-15°C over ambient temp! | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>AMD Overdrive or Coretemp Temperatures?> Related ressources: ForumAMD Overdrive temperatures vs Core Temp ForumPhenom IIx2 545 unlocked cores and AMD overdrive .
