I'm running a Q9300. I'm particular of the cpu temp, and have fixed a CoolerMaster Gemini II heatsink, on which I have installed 2 120mm silent fans.

The temp? Runs at 39 - 42 Celcius at Idle. Reaches upto 47C at peak.

Even if it's Q9550, I still think it's running at much higher temperature. Try to aim for a peak temp. below 60C.
