Antec 1200 has alot of fans.. 6 x 120mm 1 x 200mm. Video card fan, PSU Fan and Heatsink fan. My room isnt really that hot. Has there been cases where E8500 Thermal Sensors are not accurate at idle? Or maybe I should add more paste.

bios should be accurate, if not then i dont know what to say.

i find pc wizard to be very helpful, as its allmost a perfect match with my bios readings.

CPUID
