Thats pretty impressive especially since my silverstone beastie fan (110 CFM) is set at its lowest rpm by fan controller (1100 RPM or so).
How did you end up fixing your temps? See, I want to lap my TRUE, as 2 cores are running ~8C hotter than the other two on my Q6600. The only concern I have is the TRUE's surface is supposedly made slightly concave on purpose to match the 775 CPU's slightly convex surface (or vise versa, can't remember) - and I don't want to lap my IHS. What do you think I should do?
Sorry for the slightly OT Question. At least I received my 780i motherboard yesterday and plan on putting into action soon. I may just lap my TRUE as well since I'll be opening everything up anyway.
