I recently built the rig in my system specs profile 3 weeks ago. I have it at a multiplier of 8x and 367 FSB=2.93 ghz currently. With the Zalman 9500 fan, the temp readings from TAT and Core Temp are always 48-51 degrees idle and 62+ full load (even hitting 75 with Stress Prime 95). Although the Gigabyte EasyTune software reports a modest 38 degrees idle and 65 degrees with Prime, I don't trust it because the other motherboard utilities report way higher temps . My question is, are those temps too high? I have the CPU at 1.325 V (which is standard I believe). Also, does the CPU voltage have to increase? I thought that if you decrease the CPU voltage, then the temps will decrease. But since I have this baby overclocked, does the voltage decrease not apply? One time I had this at 3 ghz with a 1.30 v setting (is that dangerous)? Thanks a lot. I appreciate any help or feedback.
