Default E6400 temps

Hey guys,
I've recently put a Thermaltake Mini-Typhoon on my cpu as it was idling around 52C (and close to 65-70C under full load) and I thought this was a tad too high.

At the moment according to Core Temp Beta 0.94 my temps are the following:

Core #0 = 42C

Core #1 = 42C

T-Junction = 85C (I don't know what this is so if anyone has any idea plz let me know )

Are these temps ok? Remembering it is just coming to Summer down here in Australia and average temps outside are getting close to 27C and they will only get hotter.

Under load (Prime95) Running a Torture Test (In-Place Large FFT's, i.e. Maximum heat, power consumption, some RAM tested) for 15mins the Maximum Temps were the following,

Core #0 = 56C

Core #1 = 52C

So I'm relatively happy with that, now im going to start some overclocking by just upping the FSB and disabling EIST and C1E.

Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 *Cooled with Thermaltake Mini-Typhoon* || Intel Quad Core Q6600
Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
2gb Kingston 667 DDR2 RAM || 4gb Kingston 667Mhz DDR2 RAM
Gigabyte 512mb 8800GTS (683/2150)
250gb Seagate HDD (ATA133) 7200rpm/16mb cache || 750gb SATA2 Seagate HDD
ASUS MW221U 22" Widescreen 2ms.
Logitech Z-5500D 5.1 Speakers
Creative X-fi Xtreme Gamer Fatal1ty edition

3DMark06 Score = 8524 (1280x1024)

T-junction is the maximum temp.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
