Try to shoot below 55 on load, and below 45 on idle. That would be my guess. But I would want about >40 idle personally.

Bios is the most accurate.

I get 50C idle and 62C at load. I don't mind honestly because right now it's still cold outside and my mother is nuts about heating bills so the house it kept at a comfortable 63F. So my processor being so hot actually keeps my room nice and warm

Of course in the summer I might be singing another tune
