Hey, I am kind of new to this but I was wondering if my i7-950 CPU idle temperature is normal. It runs at around 42C on average at 3999.62 mhz clock (173.90x23.0), idle load is around 27% usually. Here are my PC components: ASUS Sabertooth x58 Corsair Dominator GT 12GB Kit (6x2GB) EVGA GTX670 Superclocked 4GB Corsair HX850 Corsair H80 OCZ Vertex 2 120GB Hitachi 7200RPM 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 750GB

Idle temps don't matter, load temps do.
Okay under load, I usually get around 70C. Does that seem normal?
