    that sounds normal. i would of said you would get 30 idle and about 40-45 possibly, at full load.

    as long as your not hitting 50*C full load then you should have no problems. it should never go that high idle, but if for some reason it was 45*C idle. it would still be stable. untill you maxed both cores and took it over 50*C

    Generally, you don't want over 40C idle, or over 50C load, just to be on the safe end, though I suppose you could go higher before the chip actually fries

    My X2 is at about 40C idle and 50C load. It's stable as and this is bloody hot for an X2.

    Really must reapply that thermal paste soon.
