I believe cool and quiet clocks down the cpu when its idle, so it shouldn't matter. The little difference in your temps makes me think you have a program running in the background like seti@home or folding@home, which accounts for the high idle temp. When you play a game the heat from your vid heats the cpu another degree(mine does this as well). Check the task manager to see the processor usage.
