My CPU cooler is a Noctua with two fans in addition to the rear case fan for a total of 3 120mm Noctua fans speeding the airflow through the cooler out the back of the case.

Right now I have a stable system at 3.3GHz. RAM is at 1066/5-5-5-15-2T, CPU idles at 40°C, MB at 43°C. When I close the case CPU temp rise to 50°C and MB cools to about 38°C. I expect some differences, but the CPU heats up a lot. When I run Orthos now the CPU will max out around 70°C !! These numbers are read at room temperature ~25°C

I use ProbeII, CPU-Z, Core Temp and NVMonitor to read values. Seems NVMonitor only reports nominal voltages. Can I trust these apps? I am using all the latest drivers, nTune etc., but my BIOS is 1002.

Take a look at the images of my rig. Aren't my temperatures very high? I tried remounting the cooler, using arctic silver 5 paste thingy spreading even thin layer as I have done many times with excellent results. Screws are as tight as they can be.

From what I can see you have 1 120 in
you have 2 120s out, gtx out and psu out.
I would suggest that you're starving the system of air.

I would have your front case fan's blowing in, and have your 2 cpu fans blowing to the back, and your rear case fan blowing out,, Im not sure if thats how you have it set up or not,,

Also is your case vented? If your set up the way I described you shouldn't have a rise in your temp,, is there a fan at the top of your case? if so I would have ir blowing down into the case,

You could try tacking the 120 mm fan that is on he back of your cpu cooler between the cpu and rear case fan off, you may be getting a dead spot of air..

Or maybe your 2 fron fans are not pushing enough air into the case,, turn theme up if you can..
yea man thats wierd.

On a diffrent note,, 3.6 didn't hold...

anyone at 3.6 stable with the same set up as me or close? I may not be able to with this chip, or Im doing somthing wrong with the voltages.

The rear fan and cpu fans are blowing the right direction (backwards). I turned the top front fan so both front fans are now blowing air into the case. It was pulling air out through the 4 harddrives (they run quite warm), but the air is still much cooler than the CPU.

Still no changes in temperatures. Perhaps +/-2°C, but that is not significant enough, Could be variations in room temperature or other factors. I have tried turning off the top fan (it was pulling air out), but that had no effect either.

It seems to me that the problem must be the heat transfer from the cpu to the cooling tower ... that sucks. I have no skills nor equipment to tinker with cpu heatspreader and polishing the contact surfaces.

you could try anouther cpu cooler,, I know that would be a pain in the ass,, But the 3 top ones I know of are the Tunic Tower, Infiniy,, ant the Zalmen 9500,, and 9700. If you look at my set up, my temps are low 30's and mid 40's on load

what is asus up to? They don't even list the 1203 bios, and the 1201 bios is listed as beta on their site. I thought the 1201 wasn't beta?

It seems that the cooler remount has "settled" now. At 3.3GHz, my highest stable clock so far, the CPU idle temp is down to 44 in a closed case and warm room temperature, not much less than 30 degrees celsius. MB temp is up to 44 now, but I suppose that is no reason for concern.

I opened the doors to my apartment and ventilated thoroughly, reducing room temperature below 20, and I managed to get a stable 3.375 (Vcore 1.5v nominal) clock with temps around 55 at load with orthos. Any higher than that and orthos crashes the system after 5-20 mins. Seems I have a "wall" at 1500FSB. Perhaps it is time to upgrade my BIOS (from 1002).
