    I had to look it up but that's 181.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Are you sure that temp reading isn't Fahrenheit and the others Celsius?

    From Intel:

    Table 3. Intel® 6300ESB I/O Controller Hub Thermal Specifications
    Parameter Maximum Notes
    Tcase-nhs 105 °C 1
    Tj-max 115 °C 2
    TDP 3.9 W
    NOTES:
    1. Tcase-nhs is defined as the maximum package case temperature without a
    thermal solution attached.
    2. Tj-max is defined as the maximum component temperature specification
    measured at the hottest point in the processor die.

    What does the BIOS say for processor temperature?

    Look under hardware monitoring and post that back.

    My E6300's run at about 48°C at idle (in BIOS). That's with the stock HSF's

    The ones I built with Intel boards all ran high 40's on cpu. I built this one I'm on with Biostar board, and I have bult 2 of these and they run in the high 20's low 30's.

    Believe Intel's BIOS.

    One way to know if you're having temp troubles is stability. If it's stable, you're probably OK. If you're under 60c in your BIOS reading, you'll be fine. Almost got a year on 2 systems running at 48-52c and they perform perfectly.

    You're ok.
