On a side note I'm thinking of buying an aftermarket CPU cooler for my Q9300. Currently it's at 28 with the fours cores ranging from 37 - 45 C (any help on evening that out a bit is also appreciated). Under load core temps can get into the low 60s and was just wondering if y'all think that an aftermarket solution is a good idea.
Thanks for any input!
be very dangerous, but speedfan is often inaccurate. Try coretemp or Everest.
