I have the same board and generic ram and stock hsf and I oc'd my pc to 3.4ghz. My idle temps when ambient temp is at a comfortable level is 37c.
One question fo those who own the Tuniq....is it quiet?
p.s. off topic but the way I put thermal paste: I have always put a very thin layer on both the processor and hsf and always have had very low temps. A year ago when I had an Shuttle Xpc case, my athlon xp-m 2400 was oc'd to 2.3ghz on air and that thing idled between 40c to 45c. Load as high as 58c. For being in that small case those weren't bad #'s
