My CPU temp or socket temp (not sure which one) is always 40-44C at idle. Even when the cores are idling around 30c I have that horrible temperature. After stress testing the cores get into the mid 40s and the socket temp gets into the low 50s at stock. I put a fan on my socket (I have a custom loop with an aquacomputer Kryos block and 720mm of rad space for cpu, gpu, mobo) and it did not do anything to help temperatures at the socket area so bad airflow has been ruled out. At my full overclock (4.7ghz 1.327 vcore) my Socket temp can get into the mid 70s (way past tcase) but my cores will be well within the safe zone. I think I can get more out of this CPU but as of now my temperature concerns are holding me back.
