Maybe my ASUS PC Probe II was out of whack but as long as I kept the fins free of dust, it would idle right at 18-19c.
At this point, I've cascaded that rig down to one of my sons and am using a Thermalright TRUE copper on my i7. 40-41c at idle, 64-68c under typical gaming load and 72-74c under stress test @ 3.8ghz.
