Re: Q9450 high idle/load temps (2 of them)
It seems to be normal with the 45nm chips. Just google around and you'll see tons people are reporting the same thing with the thermal sernsors. You can try your luck by RMA and see if you get one with near perfect sensors. But I recommend you keep it unless it's a bad overclocker.
