My temps seem a bit high, so I wanted to check if anyone here with experience with this stuff can tell me whether I stuffed up the heat sink installation

I have a Zalman performa cooler on a 2600K CPU

At stock the load temp under prime 95 is about 57 degs with 27 deg ambients

At OC 4.5 Ghz (but at a relatively low vcore of 1.23v) the load temp under prime 95 is about 64 degs with 27 deg ambients

This is all with fans at 100%.

Are these temperatures what one would expect from this cooler and PCU combination?

It was the first time I installed a heat sink and I applied the thermal paste fairly thinly.

Those load temps look fine, I wouldn't worry about them

What are your idle temps?

Well at idle the lowest core is 34 and the hottest one is 39/40. This is with 27 ambients

Fan is set to 50% though

Btw, cores 2&3 are always about 5-10 degs hotter that core 1 adn core 4 is somewhere in between - I hear this is normal for sandybridge?
