What temp should i7 980x be at idle?
I'm not at home right now, so don't quote me on this figure, but I think that the CPU temp in the BIOS screen (where it should be fairly idle, obviously) was 36C. From what I'm seeing on a few reviews, that may be a little high. Should I go in and redo my thermal paste? It was my first try, so I may have spread it a little thin.
