What are your temps (at idle and under load) like with the mod and without it?

Thanks,

Some quick results, idle stock 43c, H80 mod 27c, Gaming BF3 Stock 77c -82c fan on auto, H80 mod fan set to low 45c, med 43c, high 42c.

The dual fan (push/pull) is actually much more tolerable than the stock fan. I did leave the stock fan on auto to cool the vram and it hasn't spun up at all. I also replaced the thermal paste on the GPU with Arctic silver 5 and on the Vram I used Fujipoly Premier System Builder thermal pads.

I'm loving these mods! I hope to get the Antec 620 soon, from a member here.

Have you raised your clock speed/voltage any since the mod?

Not as of yet, will be moving system into a newer case tomorrow. I will do more testing afterward. Currently housed in a jammed P180 moving to a TJ10-BW. Will add some pics when I get a chance.

Do the heatspreader mod. I'm on air with the IHS and i've got idle temps of =<25C...You pop off your IHS and you can run the cooler directly on the dye!
