Solved cpu temp at 41 degrees celsius full load?

Specs: WinXP SP3 32-bit, Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @2.93GHZ 4GB RAM
Used Prime95 v27.9 to test cpu temp at full load at 26C room temp. I get 41C at full load, core 1 @ 46C, core 2 @ 43C & m'board @ 33C. My PC is not overclocked, I have aftermarket heatsink/fan installed along with 6 120mm fans (3 intake, 3 exhaust). BTW, I've just applied new thermal paste a day before doing the test. I get 52-56 C full load on the stock thermal paste before switching to the new one. I only did the self-test 512k (passed). Is this right? Are there instances that a processor can get as low as 41C at full load? It's very unusual to get this low temp at maximum load. There must be something wrong or I did a hell of a good job in applying the thermal paste. Any thoughts or worries I should take into consideration, please.

✔ Best Answer
You are doing just fine with the temps. Now if you have the right board and memory, you are ready for overclocking. The E7500 is a very good (and easy) overclocker. If you want some recommendations, post your detailed specs for one (or more) of us to post suggestions.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
