My question is ...has anyone actually installed the stock cooler without removing the thermal pad? and if so what temps are you recording? Im idling around 44c with a gigabyte 3d ultra....which seems high to me. I have only had it on for about 3 hours now so im sure it will drop over time.

I'm getting 50c. Are you guys leaving your case open or the Asus A8N32 runs much warmer due to no chipset fan?

my chipset is only 30c on my a8n32....I was really impressed. I think it has to do with my cpu fan. it circulates more air to the surrounding components. my case is closed btw
