I'd say my temps are like that cause hot air can't escape my case at all cause theres one vent which is on the side of my case and my case is a MATX case so hopefully I can get a deal on a new case today. Probably gonna get a Coolermaster Storm Scout.
I'll wait a while then I'll get a new board then I'll start overclocking since I'm already getting better fps at stock speeds then I was with my E7200.
i see by your sig, it was a B3 revision.
your case does seem hot. my Q6600 idles around mid to high 20's.C
running intel burn test, it reaches the mid 70's.c but this is extreme.
running BFBC2 it never goes above mid 50's.c
also my vcore at 3.3ghz is 1.39v in the bios
just make sure you get a good cooler, this is the only thing stopping me going higher on my overclock
if you can get a decent p35 pr p45 mobo then you should get at least 3.0ghz and maybe even upto 3.4, but every cpu is different.
but even on my old gigabyte g41 mobo, i reached 2.9GHz
good luck and nice find
