so a different cpu etc can make one cooler 14 degrees worse in two different tests (Silent shark, See above)?

so what does that tell us about cooler testing in General?

Let us know how it is. I'm trying to decide on a single tower cooler to boost my speeds- currently 4.2Ghz on 1.2v and Prime hits 70*C with my Gaia. Hoping to push to 4.5 with the same temps but still can't decide on a new cooler that won't block my RAM slots.

Get either the Thermalright Archon SBE X2 or the Noctua U14S if they Fit.

My case cutout doesn't line up, so it'll probably be this weekend. Full teardown, blow out, reassemble. Ugh. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
