Yeah, I'd say that's fine smile.gif

Load temps are way more important.

It will vary greatly with ambient temp. 35c is fine, as stated above, load temps are more important.

eaxctly, load temps are what you should be more concerned about. 35*C idle is probably about right unless you have very low ambient temps

Like stu said previously, idle temp is pretty irrelevant. The load temperature is what you should be concerned with so run a stress test and see what kind of temps you are getting as that will show you whether or not you used too much thermal paste.
