These are quite powerful fans, im guessing 20 CFM more powerful than the stock fan. I might get some Ultra Kaze 3k's to replace the one's on the xiggy but i think im good currently. I dont think your going to idle at 62'c without a heatsink, I dont think the IHS is that good.
My ambient is always at least 32c sometimes 34c but my load is 43 to 44 usually. I think its my GPU keeping my ambient cpu high as it is always at least 44c to 48c without load. My GPU fans run at 40% and at load gpu temps barely reach ~60c. I havent seen the need to raise the fan speeds but looking around it appears my abient cpu may be a little higher then most because of it.
But hearing your stock zalmam load temps, I think this rosewell mod does okay. I couldve just bought a cooler but what fun would that be. Maybe I will steal your push pull patent, LOL. No, no, but i really think that was a pretty good idea. It it works much better then you would think!
