cpu temp is dependent upon your room ambient temperature

What everyone else has stated is absolutely correct. The ambient temperature is directly related to your idle/100% load temps.

Example:

@ 20°C ambient - idle temp is 32°C and 100% load temp is 45°C (case temp is 39°C)
@ 32°C ambient (2 days ago) - idle temp was 44°C and 100% load temp is 54°C (case temp is 48°C)

I wholeheartedly agree with nuclearjock in the fact that if you're having problems with the HSF staying mounted (I'm assuming it's the stock cooler from Intel with the dumb-a$$ plastic push-through clips), then definitely get an aftermarket cooler (I'm using a CoolerMaster Hyper48 and it dropped my temps by about 8°C - the Thermaltake Typhoon is also a kick-a$$ cooler too). These will be much more securely mounted (screwed onto the mobo) and will cool much better.

I don't know about the MSI mobo you have, but you for my mobo I have what ASUS calls QFan which makes the fan run at a slower speed and pretty much silent. You might want to see what your CPU fan is running at (default speed with no throttling should be about 3000-3500rpm). If it's not at this speed check your BIOS for a similar feature to the QFan and disable it. Your CPU fan will then run faster and therefore cool more efficiently.

Under normal circumstances I have QFan enabled and the fan runs at about 1500rpm but under a heat wave (over 30°C) I will disable QFan and make the CPU fan run at full speed (3200rpm)

Hope this helps!!

thanks falcon2099 but as i said before, AND as is in my system signature thing, i use an ASUS mobo, not MSI as you said, and i use an arctic freezer pro 7 which i have heard uses a similar mounting system as the intel stock cooler.

but to let everyone know, i re applied arctic silver 5 and got the HS on a lil tighter so im back to idling at around 44/45C. thanks for your replies.
