I ran prime95's heat torture test and got an idle and max temp reading using that coretemp program.

I'm honestly surprised at your temps becuase typically zalman quality is top of the line.

What other type of cooling does your case have?
I have a 120mm fan taking in air in the front, a 120mm exhausting air out the back, and a 80mm exhaust on the top. When I get my next heatsink, Im just probably gonna get the Tuniq Tower, as I hear thats the best. Nice temps btw
