I am getting 45C on idle which kinda worries me. I've heard that Abit motherboards tend to add 10C to the actual temp of the CPU so that would equate to about 35C temp of my CPU. Is this normal for a watercooled system?

The players:

Abit IC7-Max3
2.4c / arctic silver 3
DD maze 4 using tygon 3/8 tubing
Lian li pc70
Eheim 1048
5 1/4 bay res (bled nicely and slowly)
DTEK Pro core 2 shrouds/fans

I have Max3 also and temps read fine, that issue with temps reading high have been fixed a couple of bios updates ago. Before my max3, I had an IC7-G and temps were correct on that too.
