what do you have your voltage core set at ? mine is 1.550 , maybe that has somthing to with core temp eh? it started out running cooler when i first put it in but this seems to be where it settled 44-45 c idle.
Update- I got the latest version of the software im useing to monitor the system and now its saying my idle temp is 38 - 40 c
trippy huh , I guess i should just use the bios temp reading .
