    Hey guys just a quick question. Are these good idle temps? Ive done a stress test and it never went above 65c but it always idles between 39-41c just wondering if this is normal pic from realtemp below

    Are you using stock cooler? Also, what are the ambient temps around your area?

    Im using a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ and it gets to about 100 degrees outside but i always have a fan on aiming right to my pc...i also dont have case fans mounted on the sides i ordered a few. But other than that ive reapplied and reseated the thermal paste and heatsink and im getting the same temps

    Those temps are pretty decent. If you are handy with a razor blade you can cleave off a good 10c+ load temps by delidding, cleaning off the black rubber sealant and using some good TIM under the IHS.

    Looks normal. Delidding is SOOOOOOOO easy! A shaving razor & 5 minutes is all you need, if you want even lower load temps of course ;)

    Perfectly normal. The core temperatures are almost never even.

    Why bother to delid when the temps are great as it is?

    Not necessary or warranted. Probably something that a self professed "noob" shouldn't even be thinking about. :)

    For the same reason your OC, because it can be done and in this case will lead to cooler running and longer lifespan, duh.

    de-lidding isnt the end all and be all of cooling, some ppl prefer to keep their warranties intact. I for one cant afford another 3570K so de-lidding isnt an option for me and my temps are within acceptable limits as well.

    I tend to agree... more for the aggressive overclocker (shhh... don't look at my sys specs, lol). All things equal, delidding may get you another + 0.1 Ghz stable overclock but that's about it unless you go to extreme cooling.
     
    AlienIsGOD says thanks.
