I'm surprised you use a Zalman 9500 with a six-core. In my experience they don't have very good cooling ability with quads or higher. The reason your idle/load temps have such huge gaps is because the Zalman can't adequately cool the CPU. To idle at 30c you honestly shouldn't even be touching 55c.

I usually idle around 40c on my 940 and max load rarely ever gets in the mid 50's and I'm at 1.45v as well.

I set the AC up better and now load is 45c after 20mins of small ffts.

I know, I read your post. I was mostly referring to your before temps.
