hello to everyone, my system:
asus p5kpl-am/ps
4 gb ddr2 800mhz kingston 2 sticks
intel e5200 2.5ghz with no overclock
cpu cooler crosair a70
geforce 9600 gt
psu:antec basiq vp450p 450w

i want to do overclock to e520 but my temp is 45c with no overclock isn't it high?
i read that crosair a70 idle temp for i7 is 35c.. thank you for help and advices..nice day

Idle temperatures don't mean a whole lot. What does it load at?

Also, what are you using to read the temperature?

thank you for posting!!!
i added 3 fans to the my case and overclocked my cpu to 3.33ghz and my idle temp drop to 38 (using real temp) which is good...but now i want to go to 3.75ghz at least but my ram is limiting me(i think so),and i need to get it stable, i raise memory voltage (2.00) and decrease his frequency from 800 to 667 mhz with ratio of 3:5 (can't play with the ratio it is auto set by the bios), but the memory is only stable until 3.4 ghz.. can someone give me tips about setting the timing? there is an option like this in the bios... would it help me to run at 320 or 333 fsb with my ram stable? by the way i have kignston 2 * 2 slots ddr2 800 mhz cl5 & cl6... thanks
