    Those are idle or load temperatures? For Prime95 load they are fine.
    With well ventilated case you can expect the same change of ambiant and core temps, if the ambiant drop 9c so would core temps.

    You may find they drop by 1 or 2 degrees as the thermal paste cures. Most need bit of time, like a week or so to do their best.

    There are a few websites with comparison tests on thermal pastes too, one even includes vegemite and cheese!! Which one is the best? It's a much debated topic, like lapping. Even the application of paste is a topic of contention, with the droplet school versus the strip school.
    Each to his own preferences -

    Just looked at a review of your case - one 120mm rear fan, a side fan (90mm?) and one hidden in front? Hmm, hope its not too hot where you are or u could be case-modding.

    OMG! You said ambient 39C!!! That's way hot. Computers are pretty much designed to work well up to about 24C ambient (room temperature) so your core(?) 60, at 20 ambient you'd expect about 41C for the chip. If they were load temps, great, but idle temps not. I'm confused. What temps are you quoting, core? load?

    Where i am it's 20 ambient - cores idle at 42, Prime95 load is 60 at core. CPU goes from 35 idle to 55 load. My case has 5 x 120mm fans.

    Were they tested together or seperately?
    Who is better (be honest) vegemite or marmite?

    It's mother's fault. I was raised a vegemiter, but briefly converted to the extra caramel of Promite in my late teens.

    Vegemite, cheese and even water, all passed the idle temp test, but failed the load test.

    The 60 ish temp are load temp(for the core). Checked using the latest version of Realtemp. This test was done with both side case open and the cpu lays down flat(horizontal. Btw, i took out the side cover fan out since it wont fit with the Megahalem installed. In M'sia its actually very normal for the ambient temp to reach 37C, very hot

    Same temps here in Australia but mainly in November, December, January, February; that's mid summer.
    If you are getting load temps of 60 with Prime on a 37 degree day, you are doing well.
    If that is not while Prime95 is running, I'd be interested to know what temps you do get running Prime?

    Salty, those temps are during my test with Prime95. So far ran for 3 hours with no fault (i know i should run longer). Now, i just need to figure out how to keep the bridges cool as they're running hot, slightly hot to touch.

    I have used "carby springs", short ones with hooks on end to fasten a 40mm fan to the side of the NB. Some use hot melt glue, some peel the top piece off somehow and put a small fan on top. Doesn't matter how, but to get some airflow in there is the trick.

    It's 31 here today, idle: cores 47, cpu 42.
