Before I go on let me first say I am a complete novice to overclocking, I've never done it before. For this test I simply used the overclocking-for-dummies "OC Genie" on the BB XPower to achieve the desired test cpu clock.

Okay, anyhow, I didn't take screen shots with my previous tests before the new setup, but I did write down the max numbers. These are all on the highest fan setting, the fan noise is completely tolerable to me so I don't use any other setting.

Both tests were run "BurnIn" for 10 minutes with the cpu clockspeed at 4313.5mhz (see bottom picture for details)....Anyway, here's the results:

H100- Stock setup w/ supplied thermal paste:

Max temp

Core #00
63c
Core #01
64c
Core #02
61c
Core #08
62c
Core #09
68c
Core #10
69c

H100- Push/Pull using AP-15's with NT-H1 thermal paste:

Max temp
Difference

Core #00
55c
(-8c)
Core #01
54c
(-10c)
Core #02
53c
(-8c)
Core #08
50c
(-12c)
Core #09
56c
(-12c)
Core #10
58c
(-11c)

I'm very happy with the results. My next test will be overclocking to 4.8ghz, as the last test on the stock setup was not sustainable (reached over 80c within 5 minutes of test). I will post those results soon.
