    With stock cooler, my E6600 C2D ran around 41-42C with regular use.

    I put a Zalman 7700 series copper cooler on it, and overclocked it to 3ghz, and it still ran under 45C.

    My E6750 OC'd to 3.2GHz is running at 33C under mild browsing/music listening on stock cooling. My case is extremely well ventilated though. Quiet too.

    Normal operating temperature isn't the issue. If your computer can run at 100% load for 20 minutes or so, and not lock up, then it's got adequate cooling.

    Try Core Temp instead of speedfan.
    Prime95 small-FFT torture test is great for generating heat.

    Temp 1 = CPU
    Temp 2 = chipset
    Temp 3 = not used, in your case.

    That's one thing about Intel boards.

    The Intel utility has a good monitor for temps.

    Best one I ever saw though was on a tyan server board.

    The Tyan utility monitors every single part of a motherboard.
