thermal paste takes a few weeks to settle in. your temps should drop a little bit. that also goes for any other parts too.

Where you probably read 1.5V for your CPU is on a website that tells you what watts you need for your computer. it uses an average so i wouldn't go by it too stricly.

Ah ok I'll wait then... Hopping it will drop at least at 42-48 C!

Maybe my case is a problem? Because it is kind of small... 14 inches x 13 inches x 7.5 inches...

Thanks !

How many fans do you have? Are they blowing in or out?

One 120 mm blowing in front, One 80 mm blowing in from the side, One 92 mmblowing out from the rear and the power supply blowing out.

The thing is that my motherboard is something like 10x10, so that doesn't give me much space for all the wires, hard drive, etc.
