I'm using a Alpha PAL6035 and a YS Tech Quiet Fan and my temps range from 32c idle to 48c full load. You can see my specs below. Are these okay temps? No overclocking.....YET!

Well they are definately not harming the CPU in any way, but people usually get those with stock HSF. Are you using any thermal grease, or Arctic Silver?

When there is such a drastic flux in temps it usually means HS is not seated properly. Try re-seating it and apply a thin layer if you hadnt already. Then see what happens.

That seems high esp. if you're not overclocked. What is your core voltage set at?

My core voltage is at 1.75. Atleast thats what is says in the BIOS. When I check Sisoft is shows the CPU Cor Voltage at 1.84. Thats weird. Anyway, I have taken the heatsink off and placed it back on two times, so I don't think it is seated improperly, but maybe. I am also using thermal paste...just generic sstuff from Radio Shack. One thing that might be going on is: when I received the processor, it was an OEM model with a price tag/sticker on the bottom. I didn't pull it off for fear of damaging the chip. Could this be getting in the way of the temp meter in the socket? The tag on the chip is right in the middle of the proccessor, on the bottom side. Also, I have the fan sucking instead of blowing. Does that make any difference? Thanks guys.

The tag shouldn't make a real difference. The CPU fan should suck the air out, not blow down the heat sink. What kind of case cooling do you have?

Case cooling is good...I think. Two intake (80mm) in the front, and two output in the back (80mm), plus an output for the PS in the back.

Based on your last question about the voltage, I decided to lower it in the BIOS and see what my readings were with the VIA HWM sw. After lowering th evoltage to 1.65, it is reading as 1.73 in the VIA and 1.74 in Si Soft? Does this sound right? When it was showing 1.75 in the Bios, it was reading 1.83 in the VIA and 1.84 in Sisoft.

Si Soft is not perfectly accurate !!

I would apply quick silver to the heat sink !!
