I put my Q6600 in and the temps are normal. The Q6600 idles at about 34c (on all 4 cores) overclocked to 3.4ghz. I am using a ThermalRight Ultra 120 extreme. I've tried Arctic Silver 5 and MX-2.
How exactly are you measuring the temps? Some times inaccuracies can occur due to the way you take the temps.
