    What are you measuring your temps with ?, that looks good for idle but what are your temps like running Intel burn test ?

    Those temps are fine for idle but it is load temp you need. Download Prime 95 and leave it running for 15 mins then see what temps you get using Core Temp or Real Temp.

    I would avoid Intel Burn Test as it cause the chip to heat up far more that prime 95.
