Ok, downloaded coretemp 0.99.8 and it stays between 29C and 34C on idle. That's more like it!

Glad you got it all figured out. The stock heatsink is a tricky one to mount for new builders. You really need to use direct pressure and push down the center of the heatsink fairly card before pushing though the pins.

Yeah one of the grips on the "feet" (or whatever) was causing a bit of trouble but like you said, with a bit of pressure (this mobo likes to make cracking sounds) everything worked out fine.

yeah, my motherboard made lovely cracking sounds when I mounted my H50 the first time. It's scary but it's normal.

That and what really scared me the first time was the CPU. That sound of clamping it down and the amount of force..

It's mainly to ensure the best contact and touch between the base of the heatsink/pump and the CPU cooler + TIM even some coolers like the Thermalright Venomous-X include an option for tightening the pressure on the CPU.
