Phase lol it all depends on ambient temps and the amount of voltage used. With my 5.1ghz at 1.472v, my ambient temps at around 19/20c, my custom water cooling and externl rad with all 6 fans at 25% speed (completely silent) on push/pull config, my temps at 12hour blend peak at dead on 70c and averages mid 60s, that's with 2 gpu's on my loop. With IBT it's a 10/12c increase, hitting just above 80c. Check the Project - Mod - Review link on my sig for my watercooling build.
EDIT: Mind you I have a 2500k, the HT on the 2600k adds about 10c.Edited by munaim1 - 7/28/11 at 12:52pm
