I assembled this system with a Xigmatek HDT-S1283 and just couldn't keep it from going over 62C at stock clocks with Prime95 or OCCT Linpack, so I upgraded to my Megatron. I originally started out in a push config with a 1900rpm Scythe Slipstream on Megatron, then I got smart and upgraded to a Panaflo FBA12G12H1BX in push.
I ran into a clearance issue with the VRM-R2 you see coming from my ASUS EAH4890, so I changed it to a pull and have a Ultra Kaze 1000 waiting to be converted into a shroud to get me that extra couple of degrees I so desire. ATM, I idle at 35-37C and load at 51-53C at 26C ambient, all this after upgrading to MX-3 from AS5 and watching my temps drop about 5C
BTW, how about posting some temps as well? It will give the rest of us an idea of what our fellow Mega-Lovers are getting. Don't forget to include your ambient.Edited by LoneWolf3574 - 9/1/09 at 7:10am
