I'm running a phenom2 x4 BE, stock fan stock thermal paste. (just recently installed [day 2 of being on]).

Read the temp through Core Temp program, and it stated its running an avg. 37c idle... I just ordered some aftermarket thermal paste to see if that would help.

Fans are working full time. wondeing if I'm doing something wrong.

any advice? Thanks in advance. :??:

37C as your idle temp is perfectly normal with stock cooling, especially if you have a high ambient temp. Could you post temps under load. That's a lot more telling.

Your Processor is very very normal. In fact, it is right where it should be with a stock cooler.
