i just swapped out my a6-5400k for an a10-5700 in my e-i7. My CPU package temps did not improve. i have three fans running exhaust, and am using the Noctua NH-L9a (37mm tall); i also hooked up a scythe Kozuti (40mm tall). The Scythe perhaps reduced the temps by one degree, but i am still running 46-48 at idle. Stardog, you mentioned seeing 35C at idle, was this the CPU package temperature? Could i be running too many exhaust fans? I can't imagine that the Noctua or Kozuti would cool less than the stock cooler. I am using the MSI FM2-A75IA-E53 motherboard; did you install the new bios?
