I just ran a stress test on my CPU (Phenom II 965) and at 100 percent load it got up to 55C. i have a ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED on my cpu. now granted that my dorm is small, has poor circulation, and has like 2 TV's and 360 and a few laptops in it running at all time those temperatures still seem a bit high to me. people have reported temperatures as lo as 25-30C idle on this processor and yet i idle at 45C. Anyone know if these temperatures are high and if so what do you think may be the cause? I think i may try removing my heatsink, cleaning it and the processor off and then reapplying thermal paste .... worth a shot or not the issue?
