Using a Thermalright Venomous Black X atm with a single XIGMATEK XLF XLF-F1255 120mm PWM fan and 61cfm and my temps are pretty good only running 3.5ghz atm and my temps are 32/36/34/37 with a few background apps running.I also just got done playing X-men Wolverine for about 2 hours and my temps never went over 46c,This fan is a really good fan just enough air and its quite and newegg hass it 30% off atm
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233045

Tonight ill be installing my H80.Hopefully its just as good.Im might grab one more XIGMATEK XLF XLF-F1255 and see how well they work with my h80
