2x Fractal Design Silent R2 140mm in pull and 2x XSPC 140mm fans in push at full speed.
I wonder what I could get with better 140mm fans....
This is very good at 5.2~Ghz!
When I test at 5.2Ghz im hitting 100C, and 5.3 im hitting 105 C. I need to get the naked mounts from EK already.

Idling now at around 25 and full load high 50's. This is an improvement. I'm still considering adding another rad to my loop maybe a 120 at the back fan. This would give me a more impressive look with more tubing and better performance in hot weather. Just don't have the $$$ do do my video cards wish I did:o
Never was a fan of arctic silver. I make changes too often to wait for "burn in time" with a TIM that is 1-2C worse than GC extreme if not just the same.
I also used to always warm up my Arctic silver first. Seemed to make "burn in" go faster. I still do this with all my TIM's, the seat is always just prettier...
