Using AC Freezer 64 Pro rather than stock cooler, with cool master paste I would not expect such high temps, I have 80mm rear case fan and 2 side fans one controlled by case sensor. MB is GA-M720-US3, F4 bios, VGA Sparkle GT9600 (stock speeds) Let me know if you need further info. Any advice help would be be appreciated.
Knocker, 80C seems extremely high for full load. That temperature may not actually be accurate. Can you post a screen shot of speedfan while the machine is running at full load? I recommend downloading Prime95
and running a quick test to monitor temperatures. Perhaps speedfan is displaying incorrect temperatures. Try a few other applications and compare the temperatures. Check out Coretemp
if you can.
Let us know
