Are these idle temps good?

I just got done with my new build and I was wondering if these idle temps are good.

Specs:
AsRock z77 Extreme 4
NZXt Phantom
Corsiar h100
i7 3770k
1tb Caviar Black
ASUS Dvd Drive
Samsung 840 SSD
GTX 670


The temps idle around 28-32c and that is not overclocked any, its at stock clocks 3.5ghz.

  1. Idle temps are largely dictated by the ambient (room) temperature. Guessing its ~25c where you are?

    Yea, those are decent idle temps.

    The ambient temperature is 71F

    So 22c ambient and your getting ~30c idle temps.
    Pretty decent.

    Alright thanks for the help where should I find information about over clocking with this board and processor. And what do you think I could get basing it off of these temperatures?

    Thanks
  6. Heres a good tutorial for overclocking the Ivy Bridge chips.

    Not sure, but you should get a decent overclock. The H100 is about the best cooling you can get without venturing into custom water-cooling.
