does 38 degrees celcius idle for an amd phenom ii 720 overclocked at 3.2ghz sound about right? I have a zalman 9500nt cpu cooler. My case is a larger micro atx. Sometimes when i'm lucky if i wait sometime for the cpu to cool down it goes to 35 degrees. When it is on load consumption, it goes up to 54 degrees max. But mostly it's at 52-3 degrees. Does this sound about right for the particular cooler i am using?
