room is also a tiny bit on the warm side... roughly 30C +/- a few degrees. I realize that doesnt help, however its a small room with little airflow, thats why I got the antec nine hundred, with all its fans it makes airflow lol.. best I could do with what I have..
I was thinking of lapping the chip, but to void the warranty im not sure.. right now its at 3303mhz and running 52 and 61 for core2 and core 1 respectively, 55 chip average under full load. Idle is between 40-50. I dont think thats too bad for a room with high ambient temps like this one plus a cheap liquid system that most decent aftermarket fans can put down lol.
