Idle 29-32c
load 42-45
Temps rose? So why would you do that? Because the poop color look of the noctua? Which Zalman fans? The ZM-F3? I would be surrised if you are getting worse temps with the ZM-F3 but I suppose the heatsink is made specifically for those fans

I doubt is one of the good Zalmans, those fans rock plus I think he replaced two fans with just one, which then would make sense.

Ah yes that would make since. Space saver I suppose, but then why would you get the NH-D14, right

Yes because of the poop colour, mostly because there was no leds lighting my life.
The stock fans usually ran at 5-800rpm while gaming and around 11-1200 while stress testing, temps now are only slightly different but the zalman runs at 1300rpm idle and full load while stressing.
Yes i'm using the stated zalman fan.

As i hit a wall oc'ing at 3814mhz @ 48c-ish i have'nt the need for all the cooling this heatsink can give so i'm happy with my 3.6ghz and a few degrees more as lets face it 44c on full load is awsome still.

I know what you mean, even with the 45C I get at load now compared to 56C before, under 64 bit windows 7 my 955 wont give me anything else so at the end of the day I just have a cooler system but no real performance gain....then gain, I am better prepared for i7 now lol

Volt maximums permitting I would love to see you guys pump up the overclock some how. With all that temp headroom it would be driving me crazy

Yeah i need a new cpu so i can spend my hours oc-ing to my hearts content, we'll have a awsome cooler for a long long long time to come, i'm sure it'll serve us all very well will in the future.
And i've just stressed and max was 47c at 3600mhz 1.42v, thats about same temp i was getting with 3800mhz at 1.49v

I guess with the temps I have I can push my voltage higher indeed even just for the sake of testing as I am not going to kill my CPU for fun ...I need it alive to get some cash if I want to upgrade later lol

Allready been there Shadowclock, 2 or 3 nights i stayed up oc-ing crazy, ended at 3.8ghz at 47c as no matter what volts i increased or lowered i wasnt going to get my chip stable for more than 30 seconds.
I did alittle review here when i first got it and that includes some pics of temps ect .

link when i first got the nh-d14
