Using core 2 quad q9300, arctic ceramique 2, ebay cooler (i think its deepcool ice edge mini fs ;not sure )

Idle: 56c Full load :63c

What's the problem. I reaplied everything. Bt same results.i used real temp software

I have idea of buying arctic mx-4 at black friday(hope there will be discount) Is it worth? Also i have idea of buying hyper 212 evo at black friday(i think there will be discount) is it worth?

What do you think? Thanks in advance

63c Under full load is good. If it was 80c+ then that is when you should worry

Thanks. Bt i saw some people having idle at 35-45c.... Again are you saying there is 0% risk. And is this normal for core 2 quad q9300? Is Upgrading cooler and thermal paste worth it?

Idle, just hot running because if its 63c under load its perfectly fine

I'm not sure, but it is still safe and you don't need to worry.

What is the temperature in your house? Those idle temps are on the high side but they're barely budging at all under load, so you are ok. Using MX-4 isn't going to change much, but a cooler might. Look up benchmarks for your cooler and compare them to the Hyper 212 Evo.

Also i heard that ceramique 2 isnt optimized for air cooling.its optimized for sub zero cooling.is that true?

If it's true, they've failed to market it that way. That's a very niche method of cooling lol.

No, that's not true. Their own website says it's for use with heatsinks and water cooling.

Everyone has said you are fine. That's the point. Your idle is a bit high but that could be because of a lot of stuff. The idle isn't important. Your load temps are fine and that is what matters.

Nothing to see here. ;)
