I've got a 5200 and was wondering what temps should it be sitting idle at, just for my own curiosity. The bios shows it sitting anywhere from 41 C to 44 C. Is that high? I'm using the stock heatsink. Thanks

Mine is running currently at 2.7GHz on water at 28C (winter) to 38C (summer).

The BIOS will show higher Idle temps than in windows because none of the power saving stuff kicks in. Grab Core Temp and see what your temps are in windows.
