    How do you overclock in Linux? BIOS? I used to love OCing back when I was using Windows... Oced an Athlon 64 FX-55 to 3.2Ghz.

    BIOS.

    My Server reads 44C for the CPU, but 34C for the hard drives. It's not fully idle, though (VMs are running).

    Oh, the CPU is a i7 2600K @ 3.4Ghz (Sandy Bridge).

    For me it is 42℃ after 14 hours of uptime. The temperature just after a cold boot is normally around 35℃. It's a Pentium Dual Core E2140 1.6 GHz on a run-of-the-mill MSI mainboard.

    Thinkpad W530; I7-3630; two 500-gig drives; using onboard Intel: 40-45C, with occasional higher and lower outliers. Fans perk up at 44/45.

    Always on AC at "max performance". No throttling or battery coddling.

    Re: What is your idle CPU temperature?

    A raw CPU temp may or may not have much meaning (beyond whether or not it is in the safe operating temperature zone) due to the configuration of the system.

    For instance, it might sound impressive for me to tell you that my CPU idles at around 30°. But it's not by magic.

    At 20 - 22° C ambient, my AMD Phenom II x6 1100T idles at 19 - 21° per AMD's goofy temperature output as interpreted by sensors. I add 10° via a script to feed to my conky for a corrected reading of 29 - 31°.

    It's air cooled by a Noctua NH-D14, voltage regulated fan speed (because Noctua's fans that came with it when I bought it are not PWM), with the fans running ~ 500 - 525 rpm (max is 1200). The machine is in a Cooler Master HAF X case with 4 200mm fans.

    Running pi on all six cores for 30 minutes gives me a stable temperature of 50°C +/-1° at 100% core load. I've never seen the CPU cooling fans kick up above 1000 rpm (83% of 1200 rpm).

    The reason the CPU runs as cool as it does is that I'm blowing massive amounts of cool air over it.

    Right now, with several things running, sensors is giving me this on the CPU:

    Code:
    k10temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1:        +22.2°C
    My conky shows this:
