I don't know what my idle temp is because my computer is never idle (thanks to F@H)

I think I'm around 38 C Idle. My heatsink is in my sig. Should be getting an Enermax 92mm today so I can put on my SLK900a. We'll see how the temps react after that.

Some of you guys getting <36C. Looks like I need to invest in a new fan and heatsink.

It used to be 44C idle until I cleaned out the PC and vent area. Dropped 2C to 42C.

XP-M @ 11.5 x 209 [1.675Vcore]
SLK800 + Panaflo H1A (39CFM) + AS5 (of course)

Exhaust: 2 x Panaflo L1A (21dba)
Intake: 1 x Panaflo L1A / 1 x (empty)

CPU/Case (idle): 42/25
CPU/Case (load): 47/27

I used to be at 43/28 idle, but after cutting out my 2 intake fan grills (yes, one of them is empty lol), my case temps dropped 2 C's. Not bad :)

42C idle, 62C full load on an IC-7, so reality might be somewhere near 34C to 56C.

Case temp idle is 32C. PWM 33C.

With an old swiftech HS / 92mm vantec thermoflow fan hackjob, 3 80mm vantec stealth case fans in an antec midtower case.

Going to go to a koolance soon to see how far I can push this 2.4.

well, we/ all fans running on full(2 front intake, 2 exost, one blowhole non oporational at the moment, and my psu fans, im geting 35 cpu(rig 1) w/ AS5. i dont quite belive that though, b/c my case temp is 38 :p(though i do have a window fan that just hapons to blow air right onto the 7000 b/c of my mobo[the socket placement is almost the dead center of the board, and the huge hsf is right infront of the fan]). id say my normal av. is around 40 w/ case at 38. w/ all fans on low(7v)-the blowhole(my fan controler lost a channel, so i just unpluged the fan) 43.

P4 2.4b @ 3.2ghz is 40c according to the IS7-E, but I gather that isn't entirely reliable :) Stock HSF, good case air cooling though (3out (back & top) - 1in (front))

Can hit 60c running Prime95 for 12 hours, usually about 48c playing a game.
