but u gotta remember ur cases will make a HUGE difference. Punky could have 3 case fans and CompMan could have 6, so punky either get a better (airflow wise) case or an aftermarket cooler. or both

and what kinda thermal paste will also make a huge difference or how old ur thermal paste is. id recomend gettin an aftermarket and some brand new Arctic Silver 5. dont sweat about gettin a better case.
