i re-ran @ 1150 mhz and close my IE browser this time :
a little less vrm temps overclocked this time , seem windows 8 and it GPU accelerated-ness make temp higher with internet browswer..anyway i am impressed with your results .
yes the fan noise makes it seem like the pc is "ghetto" and ready to exploded - the reason i changed the fan to aftermarket . i guess the good thing about the arctic mono plus is the fan is DEAD SILENT @ 100%. otherwise it is a wash- trade off , "higher vrms temps ? and lower gpu temps?"
