I'm not sure of the room temp but it must be in the low 20's.
IS that with the case open or closed?

Yes, it is "that good". Sure, it's not the best, but after some lapping and a new fan, it's great. I load at 38 C, with a massive overclock. I'd say that's pretty good. And since the Tuniq is pretty much impossible to find, always recommending it is nothing but fanboyism.

Using what tools to monitor your temperature?

I would be surprised if you could keep a 3.6 at 25 idle using air.

Unless

1) You arent using Intel TAT to read your temp
2) You live in the arctic

I know Tuniq is an awsome cooler, but that just seems wrong.

Intel TAT or CoreTemp are the only "real" temperatures you should be worried about, the BIOS and smartfan/etc are all way off. Even Asus's windows tool doesnt read the right temp..

I have to disagree there. How can you say the BIOS readings are not as accurate as TAT or coretemp? Hell, I couldnt even get TAT to work on my PC. I use Asus probe 2 and have confirmed it with a laser temp gun and its spot on.

tat and coretemp are only things t hat work properly whit the core 2 temp sensor that is directly on the core and dont get abig water better off blowing on your cpu whit your mouth to cool it

The *real* sensor that is 60.1C threshold is INSIDE the chip between the 2 cores i believe...you cant read that temp.

Asus Probe, Speedfan, BIOS, they all read the standard socket temperature we are used too. They probably do this becase you could use these boards with older Intel 775's as well which do not have this new thermal diode...

TAT and CoreTemp are the only real way to read your temps, and they are usually 10-15C higher. I'm not making this up its common knowledge on this board(atleast i assumed as much reading the forums).

Oh, and for his CPU to be that cold Idle would mean it is no hotter than room temperature, maybe even COLDER than the standard 25C room temp. Which in my mind would be near impossible on air unlesss his room temp is 15-20C or lower. I mean these are good chips and the tuniq is an awsome cooler, but its doubtful

well according to core temp ( i cant seem to get a working copy of intel tat for some reaosn) my temps are ranging from 52-59C. On the stock cooler at stock settings. Asus probe is saying 47C at idle but I have no clue what its reading at load. What should I expect to see these temps go to with a tunig tower 120 on it? Im gonna put some AS5 on it as well but according to core temp its borderline right now. Probably have to run with the side case off when I OC like usual.

Always recommending the BT (which happens a lot) shows similar fanboyism. I'd go with a lapped tuniq and a lapped IHS (or remove it). You could also add a 220cfm delta for $20.

Hmm, I wonder. You know TAT is made by Intel, well is it possible that they changed the algorithm and basically makes the temp seem hotter than it actually is, so that they get less problems, less overclocks = less rma's = more money at the end of the day.

Just a hunch

Also you can put a FM121 on that sucker and get even better temps
