K thanks for your input. I thought there was something odd about my temps... Looks like I'll be doing a bit of maintenance this week.

Eh, I had the thought of getting a green drive as a storage backup, but wouldn't know if they would make a big difference in performance.

Still, it runs pretty fast in my machine. I do have a SSD though and I guess I stand corrected! Tu Chez!!!

P.S. Why is the thread so quiet? Is everyone Chrsitmas Shopping or something???

Ahh...I see. No wonder.

Hes using OCZ Freeze, and has two Scythe Ultra Kaze's in push/pull @1.472v around 15C ambient...He should leave the case open if possible and re-seat the freeze

Agreed! also I would recomend making sure to tighten the mega down a couple times. As the cpu het cycles the TIM moves and the HSF needs to be tightened. (At least in my case with IC7)

What's IC7? I've been using AS5 for some time now, should I be tightening my Waterblock down again? I have spacers under my WCB. I just tighten them down. Not so much t crack anything but snug for sure. SHould I give it a looksee?

IC7 is Diamond TIM. I would check it out to make sure it is still snug because I know AS5 has a set up time.

What is the purpose of a diamond TIM? Is pure carbon the new silver? does this stuff beat the Tuniq TX-3 I'm using?

[EDIT]

Nope, it doesn't. TX-3 has a thermal conductivity of 6.2 W/mK whilst IC Diamond (7 actually refers to the size of the tube, 7 carats of diamonds. hence, there's also an IC 24.) has a conductivity of about 4.5 W/mK

The green drives are excellent storage drives, I get about 87MB/s off my WD 750 Green, the 640 Blue gives me about 96MB/s. Both are very good numbers for spindle drives. For storage you really don't need more/faster.
