Haha!! I do the same thing when Im drunk all the time. I always have to go back thru the forums I frequent and pull up my posts to make sure I didnt do anything stupid or ban worthy!
I dont doubt youre showing 18C at idle, I just think thats a little low and that you might have one of the faulty temp sensors that are common to the Thubans (which an 960T is). Check your motherboard socket temp. That isnt part of the CPU and will usually be a few degrees higher. If youre showing 18C core temp but 31C socket temp, then you know your CPU temp sensor is about 8 degrees cool. My computer room is in my finished basement and its usually pretty cool in here and my ambient temp is usually 21-22C (68-72F) and I idle at 23-24C. Im sitting here right now with Mass Effect 2 running, downloading a CD off iTunes and browsing the web and Ive showing around 40% CPU usage right now and Im running 29C.

the 212 evo performs a bit better than the h60. I would go for 212 evo if I were you.
PS: make sure you have adequate space, to hold the 212 in your cabiant
Actually its 1 degree worse than the H60. But considering its about half the price, you cant really beat that.
As for room, it should fit with no problem. I ran my 212+ in an Antec 300 with no issues and thats a fairly small case.Edited by MacLeod - 5/26/12 at 8:44am
