If the Tuniq is as amazing as they say it is, then I think that 30C idle is a little teensy bit higher than it should be.

The e6400 rig that I just built is 28-30C idle with a BT+FM121 fan.
So unless those two HSFs are head to head equal, then the Tuniq should give a lower temperature.

wayyy to much thermal paste.. you should be getting around 26-28 idle.

That seems a little warm to me.

I get 26-28 idle at 3.6 ghz with 1.4v

Make sure you apply AS5 in a thin line down the center of the cpu.

eh.. it kicks in faster(in terms of different temps). A weeks worth of folding with normal start-up and shutdown should do the trick.

I don't know where people get these understated temps....

On my e6300 @ 2.99Ghz vcore 1.29v I see Idle temps of about 34C after warming up in TAT.

The CPU temp in the BIOS reads 29C in system health (EVGA 680i).

SpeedFan reads about 32C after warming up.

This is with a lapped tuniq tower in a case with 3x 120cm + 2x 80cm Fans.

My last build was an Athlon XP mobile 1.86Ghz OC'd to 2.2Ghz and the temp estimates I got around the forums were all much lower than I saw day to day.
