Akasa X4 and Q6600 HELP!!!!!!!

Can someone please help me out?!?

I didnt know what my temperatures before I installed my new CPU fan were but now they seem a bit odd.

Im using a program called Core Temp and its telling me that the max my cpus temp has been at since ive installed it (about 30 minutes ago) is 71C and I havent used anything to put a heavy load on it. I bought it just to replace my stock fan, there was no real need to buy it, just a spontanious purchase I guess you could say, but I use my computer mainly for gaming and im scared to launch any (lol).

Could you tell me if the temperature seems to be ok or if theres a real serious problem with it

71C seems quite high for idle. I have a Q9550 CPU on the stock cooler which runs around 34C at idle and a modest overclock to 3.2Ghz. Under load, my CPU reaches 65-70C

Either you are way too hot, or your sensor is bad.

The rated temp for that CPU is 62C. You don't really want to be over that if at all possible

I've read in numerous other places that 70C is the rated highest temperature that you want this CPU to run at.

haha, funny thing, when I installed the fan, I have an extractor funnel type thing on the window of my case and as I put the side of it back on, it pulled the heatsink backwards, pulling out the front 2 pins, fixed it now and on idle its at 25

False alarm :P

(P.S Second time installing a HSF, first time in this case)

Just a good thing that you caught it before you put any real load onto your box which could have put that chip into thermal overload pretty easily.
