I forgot to mention that I run my fan at 100% 24/7, probably helps out a lot too But nice job on that mod, looks nice and clean

The attachment I'm giving you has the IDLE temperatures. The AUX fan speed is my CPU Fan Speed... the cpu fan has a 3pin thing. The one problem I get when my CPU is under load is that the Scythe Infinity gets hotter so the northbridge gets the hot air from it which it blows onto my GPU backplate... I would love some help or some ideas to why the CPU hits 80C.

Edit:- I have just clocked my Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz and under Prime95 Blend the temps are at the 65C mark.

Is that likely to be true and if so, would i see similar temperatures if I mounted another fan onto my scythe infinity?

well I have started to recommend the new, and best, air cooler on the market now, its the Noctua NH-U12P.


PROOF

I would get one, but considering what I have already, I might as well get water cooling.

Not according to this test:

http://www.frostytech.com/articlevie...id=2233&page=5

That Noctua is pretty far down the list according to the tests they ran. The Xigmatek is still king of the hill to them (when comparing temps): http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsi...#INTELHEATSINK

I would never use frostytechs reviews, look at how off their synthetic tests are? There is no way an air cooler could cool a 150 watt proc below 20C. Even if it could, those numbers are probably at the ,supposed, idle temps and would give no indication of load temps.

Look at the thermaltake 120, its at 17c, everyone with a Q6600 and a 120 pretty much idle around 30C for the best.

They aren't showing you what a particular chip's "real world" temp should be in a rig... They are showing you the difference between coolers using the exact same set-up over and over....in a controlled test. If a cooler performs worse in their tests than another cooler....it will in the "real world". They take away other factors that can affect tests and focus on exactly how much difference the coolers make between each other.

If you read their testing methods on the site....they explain why they do it that way: http://www.frostytech.com/testmethod_mk2.cfm



"those numbers are probably at the ,supposed, idle temps and would give no indication of load temps."

There are two columns on that chart. 150W, and 85W.

Actually I re-read it, and those are actually suppose to be the load temps of what a 150W proc would produce as well as 85W procs, so that only shows how even more pointless those tests are, you can't go wrong with real life tests, and there are times actually where a cooler might do well at those lower temps and actually completely suck at high load temps.


Here is a real test

Well what thermal cmpd did you use? I actually had some decent results switching out the fan on my tuniq with one that was about 115 cfm, perhaps you could remove the one fan and have a push-pull setup with two fans that are above 100cfm.

Apparently the best thermal compound is something called stars-700 and another called T-C grease 0098. Next time I need to reseat, I am going to try to get a hold of one of those.

The compound I'm using is the one that came with the cooler. crap ive lost the 2nd fan holder clip, cable ties should work right?

100CFM fans? WOW, no seriously can you name me a couple of them and their rated decibels? This system I'm putting quiet before power but if they are quiet enough I'll take them. The loudest thing in my whole pc is the northbridge fan, but I'm holding out until a dedicated aftermarket heatsink comes out for that

If someone can label a picture of the mobo better then EVGA, as in tell me what each fan connector is called I would appreciate it, my fans are all connected to random connectors so I have no idea which fan is doing 2000rpm and which ones doing 1000rpm

This is in regards to my processor hitting 80C then bluescreening. The 80C obviously means that i need better cooling but I'm not to sure about the bluescreen, does that mean its unstable? My history of overclocking spans 10 days, mainly because i used laptops before
