    Re: high idle temps

    Well load temps are the most important so I guess if you are hitting 60 you have nothing to worry about if you don't plan on overclocking. If you do, a reseat is mandatory before you start pushing voltage through it. Hope the new build is cruising along great otherwise

    Yeh i'd like to overclock sometime in the future to get more out of the 8800GT I need over 2600mhz, so thats something i'm aiming for (not a huge overclock i know). The build is going fine so far have had a few minor issues like temps and hdd being slower then i expected.

    Thanks for the help bro

    it may not be "always" true but on our office rig (DELL XPS710) this is so close!
    it is runnning 32C = idle and 50's full load... i hope i have some cash to burn! wish i could have that XPS710 also as my personal rig! hehehe

    You won't get this unless you have a top cooling case, a top CPU cooler and a fairly low ambient. Even then it depends on the CPU VID, your mobo and what the OC is.

    The Dell won't be OC, and if it's in an office I expect it's one of the lower power models.
