|Mainboard| Idle: 34.2C| Active: 38.0C|
|CPU1| Idle: 84.7C | Active: =89.6C=|
|HDD: 30C|

-Tuniq Tower

|Mainboard| Idle: 29.2C| Active: 31.0C|
|CPU1| Idle: 28.0C| Active: ((34.0C))|
|HDD| 29.7C|

Now I need a good benchmark to find out the rest of my PCs preformance.

84.7c idle?

I don't care how crappy the heatsink / fan is that you use. There's no reason idle temps should be anywhere NEAR that.

Was the base of the heatsink even flat? Or was there something wrong with the pins that hold it in the mobo, so that it's not actually contacting the CPU?

The stock heatsink/fan isn't THAT bad.

Can you post a picture of the base of the heatsink?

Wow ... another user just like me lol .. I dont have an exact temp on my cpu, but basically if I touch it, its so hot I cant keep my hand there.

Its an old Athlon 1.33ghz from like 4-5 years back .. I dont even care much, as its always been like that and I run my comp 24/7 .. Its really taking a beating and always performed well for me. Its stock heatsink/fan.

Wow man, something was seriously f'd up with your stock temps. It either wasn't seated properly or you were running a bare CPU.
