My system is listed below: Does anyone have any idea what idle CPU temp I should be running, theoretically atleast. I have the H70 and I changed out the 2 fans with Scythe's 3000 Rpms fans. I guess what Im asking is, what are the recommended basic bios settings to run the chip as cold as possible?

My abient room temp is 34* and I used Artic Silver compound and a 7 case fan configuration. I would think under those conditions at stock speed it should idle around 20* Am I wrong somewhere in my thought process? Anyone else have any suggestions? In appreciate the help!!
