I have never had that CPU, but I have read that it runs pretty hot. Layback Bear has a similar CPU and he says that above 1.28 the temps really shoot up. Lowering it to that or below may help, but would also require you to lower your overclock. But, I contend that your main problem is your CPU cooler and/or the thermal paste. In your climate, with proper bios settings, you should not be idling near as high as you are, and the higher idle compounds the heat problems under stress. I would take care of the thermal paste as soon as possible and perhaps another cooler at the same time, if you think that's necessary. But, until you do that, lowering your Vcore to below 1.28 should help some. If the problem is the seal on the thermal paste is bad, you are going to be running high temps no matter what your vcore is. That is my opinion.

I agree with your opinion. I will get that checked out before I worry about the overclocking (which, as I say, has never presented me with any problems in the past),

High Motherboard/HDD temperatures while idle
