    I read a similar thread and saw some varied responses.
    I just got a new motherboard, processor, etc...

    Right now, idle, my CPU temp is 61 C degrees+

    Does this seem high to anyone? I am not overclocking at all. I'm using the standard heat sink and fan that came with the processor. I applied Arctic whatsit 5 compound and that didn't seem to help any.

    Anyone else running this processor? What's your idle temp?

    from both bios and the probe
    I'm trying to find ANYWHERE that says what the running temp should be.

    I keep finding hugely different numbers as to what my temperature should be.

    I don't know the brand of the case. It's sort of this big generic green thing that has 5 fans.

    Should I invest in some sort of cooling solution? It seems odd to me that, out of the box, the CPU would be running hotter than it should be....
