Oh crap... above 90c?

I suggest you get a aftermarket cooler, and get some new thermal paste.

CM Hyper 212 will be the best bang for your buck, but if you already have one or don't have enough money, just get a $5 arctic thermal paste.

Yea your idle temps are what your temps should be at full load... you need to reapply your cpu cooler like they suggested.

Bro i wasn't replaying to your post. so get over yourself. My post was to answer his question, where he asked what his quad core cpu temps should be, and I was informing him that his 62c idle is what he should get at full load, bro.

and to top it off you commented on the fact i agreed that he should reapply his cpu, where i also stated in the post that it was already suggested. Guess you just felt the need to attack me for no reason, whatever.

NP you just came off as being rude :)  But if you would look at the time our posts where listed you would see that it was less than 2 mins apart, in other words your post wasn't even there when i was typing mine.
