Looking at the picture of your rig & also noting you got it back in September 2010 I'd say the rad is clogged with dust
"that's if it hasn't been cleaned since you got it" I see some dust in the picture. Go to a local computer store "something like Staples" and get a can of Compressed Air its the easiest way to remove dust from a radiator.
Take it out side & blow it out, all fans, PSU & any dust you see else where.
After doing this check your temps, if there still some what high try running with the side cover off, if they go down a good bit it could be a air flow problem.

Inteller got you off to a really good start & looking much better. +1 Inteller.

I think if it is a clogged radiator you should see a great improvement in the temps right off after blowing it out.
If that was the case you should now be ready to clock back up with some much better temps.

Edit: BTW I have to blow my radiators out about every two months around here & fans.
But it does seem a bit more dusty around these parts than some other places I've been.
You may not have to do it that often but for safe measures I would clean the PC every 3 months weather it needs it or not just to be safe.
Also watching your temps after a good clean idle & load, later "say a month or 2" temps moving up some at idle & load is a sigh it may be time for another cleaning.

Thats good, but still a bit high. You may also want to try and get that 3.8GHz stable with a bit less vcore.

Even with the 45nm i7 cpu's I don't like to see temps over the mid to mid-high 70C's

Or you could try a higher output fan.

What program were you using to stress test?
Prime95 or
IBT
???

EDIT:

Good addition to the OP's help Wolf!
All along, I was under the impression his rig was brand new.

80C is my personal Limit. Anything Higher than that and I lower my OC. When gaming Im usually @ 65-70.

Do you have an open fan header on your motherboard, or are you planing to hook it up to a 4 pin molex connector, from your power supply?

Let me know so I can get everything ready to go!

Also, please state where your at, as to your overclock, your vcore (please give a screen shot of CPUZ), and your temps.

Please update! Thanks



That was my intention all along. Thanks.




My whole effort was to get him at a lower vcore setting, but I think his temps are due to sub par cooling, and am sending him another fan for his 120 rad.

If you see any advice that I gave in this thread to be inaccurate, please let me know, as my intention is only to help the OP.

To Inteller, im at work so i cant post the screenshots at the moment but my vcore is at +20 (1.088V)
clock is at 3.35
temps max at around 77-80
idle at 45-48

As for the fan, no i dont have screws, but there are ports for the power connectors on various boards in the case so im sure ill find a home for it and be able to controll it and such. email me if u need any more info, ill be more likely to get it whilst at work

No, for now just keep your OC there, until you get your radiator blown out, and get the new fan added to your radiator.

Ok, I'll also send a variety of screws for attaching it.
Sorry, but I needed this answer before I sent it to you.

So a Fan and some screws is all you need?
Do you know what kind of fan you want?
A 120mm x 25mm (90cfm), or a high output fan, thats 120mm x 38mm (133cfm)???

It will come by UPS, so can they leave it on your door step, or would you rather it be signed for?
If you want it signed for, they wont leave it, unless someone is home.
