I have an e8400 overclocked to just 3.3ghz and my load temps hit 51c playing crysis. I have reseated the heatsink (zalman cnps9700), re applied as5, put only a half grain of rice worth of as5 and made sure the heatsink was on tight and still no help. I built this pc a couple days ago so the as5 hasnt been in use that long. I have great cable management, 2 101 cfm fans in front, 144 on the top, 120 on the back and on the side. Im wondering if the case is too small or if the 9800gx2 is making it too hot. This is upsetting to pay this much money in cooling and cant even get average temps. Please, any advise would be highly appreciated and reps will be given. Thanks!
