Looks a little messy but I was in a rush
Forgot to add temps.
So I am running the Asetek 760GC CPU/GPU cooler found on their website and for sale on ebay, to cool my Core i5-2310 and my MSI GTX 660ti Power Edition O/C.
Idle temps 10-15 minutes after folding stopped on CPU =
Core #1 = 44c
Core #2 = 38c
Core #3 = 40c
Core #4 = 38c
Load temps after 8+ hours of folding on CPU =
Core #1 = 70c
Core #2 = 68c
Core #3 = 66c
Core #4 = 66c
Idle temps 10-15 minutes after folding stopped on GPU = 35c for whatever reason the GPU core and mem didn't downclock they sat steady at 1097 core and 1800 mem. Usually they drop substantially. So idle temps could possibly be a little lower.
Load temps after 8+ hours of folding on GPU = 64c
This is with 2 Scythe Slipstream PWM fans running push/pull @ 100% for folding. When gaming the fan profile is limited to 70% which is nice and quiet, and keeps temps lower than the folding temps.
I just finished playing about an hour of the Crysis 3 beta and this cooler is awesome. Before the cooler I had to keep my overclock to a minimum to keep the sound in check. With the cooler I can run my card balls out nice and quite. I can run a constant 1280mhz core and 7400mhz mem without breaking 64-65c so no throttling. Before the cooler my core clock would boost to 1189mhz and temps would get to 80c if I wanted to keep it relatively quite.
Overall I would highly recommend the Asetek to anyone looking to cool a moderate cpu/gpu combo, in a nice neat and relatively small package.Edited by scotthulbs - 1/30/13 at 3:46pm
