That seems rather high for an idle temp to me

Breaking 50C under load is running rather dangerous to the edge. Try lowering your Vcore, no need to idle at 43C. Buy a E6600 if you need an overclockable CPU.

Er thats what I have

what kind of cooling do you have? An idle temp that high is playing with fire, if you run Orthos what kind of load temps do you see?

I think you've got a real need to either upgrade your cooling, or reconfigure what you've got in there.

Tweaked the fan settings a bit and things are better now

Idle is late 30's and maxes out at 59 after a 10 min Orthos cpu test

This whole OC lark is a tricky balance!

it still seems kind of high to me, but I'm no wiz with the E6600, I don't know what it's normal operating temps are.

Did you seat the heatsink yourself?

What is your Vcore set at?
