    I had about 50c under load at 20c ambiant with syock cooler, though I later found out there was a sticker on the side of the CPU IHS, ,aybe you have room for improvement with the stock cooler but not much.

    For an actively cooled stock heatsink to be cool(ish) to the touch isn't abnormal. Even my TRUE doesn't get noticibly warm and it keeps my E7400 at ~70c in IBT at 3.9GHz, 1.424V.

    Before you take the cooler off, make sure you have some TIM to use when re-seating it. I wouldn't bother taking it off TBH, just making sure the push pins are in propperly.

    Alright, I went ahead and bought a new CPU HSF and an intake fan for the front of the case.

    Bought a COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520.

    Idle temps are about the same as they were before with the case off, now with the case on (40C, ambient temp is about 33C).

    The temperature under load is now 50-51C, which is about a 10-20 degree difference. I can't get it above 53 on any test I run (case on).

    I'll wait and see if my problem reappears now, hopefully this solved it!

    I hope so.

    Your temps look good. With a 32c ambient they look VERY good. The combo of a bit of fresh air in and a decent cooler seem to have worked their magic.

    I had a look at a mates 182 and the grills around the doors are wider than they seem in photos so there may just be the right amount of air for the intake to get a hold of. There was no tell tale noise of a fan struggling on his config with the door closed. He said he was still going to mesh the entire door (cut out to the frame and using speaker grille like materials).

    Indeed very good unless it's a typo, last time they were said to be 23c, I get 57c+ with the same clock at 32c ambiant.
    Anyway with the new intake and CPU HS with 2 fans air flow should be much better all around including the NB and far ram slot.

    Not a typo, there was a small heatwave in California. At the moment, however, it's 24C ambient temp., and my cores while idle are 37C. Under load they hit 47C.

    Should I be worrying that the idle temps are so much higher than the ambient, even though the load temps seem pretty good? I suppose my system still isn't as well ventilated as it could be?

    Idle temps according to EVEREST Ultimate:

    No, in general, idle temps aren't important. If the cores never go under 38c regardless of ambient temperature, then they're probably stuck at idle. As they both move fine under load, that's not an issue

    If they're really high, then something is wrong. Otherwise it's cool. If the sensors aren't both stuck then making sure EIST and C1E are enabled may drop idle temps by a degree or two. Any ventilation problems would show up best under load, when the most heat is being produced.
