a8n sli premium chipset cooling

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i am getting this mobo since my dfi expert got rmad and i was credited the amount isnce it wont be in stock for awhile and am wondering how well the stock chipset cooling performs

i have water cooling and usually cool the chipset via water but if its not necessary then im going to remove that part of the loop

thanks for any input

As of right now, with just stock everything except RAM (2.7V 2-3-2-5) and GFX card at 499/1.16 here's my Temps using nV Monitor:

CPU: 31C
System: 28C
GPU: 44C

I also have a 78CFM fan on the side of the case blowing directly into the GPU and the Chipset, but when I didnt have it it wasnt much more than 30C

This was usingthe current setup used below in my system specs



EDIT: Playing BF2 under 1280x1024 AA 4x and High Settings on all
CPU: 38C
System: 29C
GPU: 50C
