    I recently upgraded to dual 5355's and didn't take into account what my speed and temps were with the original dual cores. What are everyone's average temps that have upgraded.

    I flashed to 2,1 firmware and smc reset.

    Currently under smcFanControl I'm getting readings

    With a Cpu temp of 33c. This is all under little to no load on the cpu's.
    (istatpro readings of load idle 99%)

    Are these readings normal for the machine? Sorry for the basic question but this was my first attempt and swapping processor's, thermal paste, ect. so am a little more keen to every single noise it makes now.

    Thanks in advance

    Remember thermal paste takes a few heat/cool cycles to bake in. You may get a degree drop over the next week.

    What temps do you see under a more reasonable load?

    I haven't stressed the system yet because I was a bit concerned. On another note.....

    I'm getting loud fan speeds upon boot but once I get into osx or windows they die down to a less audible level
