    Specifically regarding EVGA x58 motherboards (not really including Classified model). Whats is everyone's typical NB idle and load temperatures? I replaced my stock HS with a Thermalright HR-05 IFX (hopefully I will attach a 80mmx15mm fan to it tonight) a while back, but can't remember what kind of NB temps I was getting back then. So I need to know NB temps from other x58 owners if you still using the stock HS/HSF (preferably if you own EVGA's) so I can get an idea where I'm at. Taking into consideration of ambient temps, my NB runs idle around 50C (+/- 2C) and load around 60C (+/- 2C), its summer and I don't have AC, but room temperature is usually 70F-85F on average, depending on day or night.

    Secondly, I seen other people's x58 idle temps for Core temps (not CPU temp, or so they claim) that are as low as ~25C-~30C and go as high as +60C on load. So that's a ~30C difference. My Core temps idle at ~40C, but it only goes up to ~50C, a ~10C difference. My question here would be, what does that tell me about my cooling setup? (Considering my room don't have AC and its summer)

    its strange but the x58 temps has 2 characteristics.

    1 - runs very hot on some mobos and very cool on others
    2 - normally it hits 60 - 70

    the evga cooler was very good so i think u shoulnt notice much difference till u put the fan
     
    Sanhime says thanks.

    I don't disagree, EVGA does have decent coolers on their mobos. What concerns me mostly is that I have the x58 Micro and it used passive cooling via HS as stock before I switched. That stock HS run very hot-to-touch, which is a good sign, because it tells you its doing the job, but I just don't remember what my old temps were when I still had the stock HS installed (and I don't feel like putting it back again lol). With the Thermalright HS, it only feels warm, so I thought maybe it was not doing the job, but my NB temps now are 50-60, idle to load, so I was a bit confused because I don't remember what my old temps were. It probably only feels warm as oppose to hot-to-touch because of the pipe/fin design, whereas the stock EVGA HS is just one solid metal sculpture (I can't even tell what that HS is made out of).

    If you have a PWM fan just place it on top of the VGA blowing on it
