Default Q6600 Overclock high temps?

I got my Q6600 running@ 3.2 Ghz, idle temps are 45-50 and prime95 25.5 takes it to around 70-71 max. That seems a little high right. I have 2 120 mm panoflo, one intake one exhaust, and a 80mm blowing right onto my zalman 9700. Vcore set at 1.4. Any reason why my temps are so high? From what I have read idle should be around 35. So I know something must be wrong here.

That's REALLY high, you need to underclock it right now. Turn down the VCore.

Are you sure your HSF is installed properly? With thermal paste?

The vcore is too high would be one reason, higher voltage = higher temperatures

What m/board do you have?

Check that the Zalman is seated correctly.

Which thermal paste did you use and how much and how did you apply it?

the zalman is a crap HSF for this job. an overclocked quad needs a Tuniq Tower 120, Thermaltake Big Typhoon, Thermalright Ultra120 Extreme, Scythe Infinity, etc.... zalman may look pretty but i'd rather have a HSF that works.
