Id bite the bullet and dig back into it so you can spin the HSF around so that you can mount the fan so that is on the front side pushing air towards the back.
Yeah its about 38C according to Core Temp.
I dont see how Id spin the fan around now that its permanently fixed to the CPU though :/
EDIT: Turned my fan around the other way, from what I've read 38C for idle is pretty normal to most people. Why is it so bad?
Double edit: Im down to 34C with the fan facing the other way lulz make that 30C
TRIPLE EDIT: SHATMAN its 31C now xD
