This reduced mobo temp with 10-15C, CPU with about 5C and GFX with about 10C. Running with stock cooler so far btw, buying a new cpu fan soon.

Mobo idles at 36C and CPU at 35. When I play heavy games mobo tops at 46C and CPU around 72-74C.

Specs:
CASE: Define R3, No PSU - Silver Arrow

PSU: 750W Corsair TX CMPSU-750TXEU 140m

Mainboard: Asus P6T Deluxe V2 Intel X58 DDR3
CrossFire/SLI

CPU: Intel Core i7 930 2.80 GHz 8MB Box
130W S1366

GFX: MSI N480GTX-M2D15 - GF GTX 480 -
1.5 GB - DirectX 11

RAM: Corsair 12 GB kit DDR3 1333 Mhz

HD: Samsung 1TB SATAII/ 7200 HD103SJ

Thought I'd share since I just built this setup a week ago.

(there are 2 x 120mm fans at about 1300 rpm in the front and back of this case)

Oh and I'm using PC probe and realtemp to measure these temps.

You might wanna transfer those system specs to your signature area if you plan on sticking around here...

Click the User CP link up top and select "add new system" from the sidebar on the left

Anyone have an idea on whether I should install this in a north-south orientation (facing the top and bottom of the case) or the standard east-west orientation? I'm asking this only because I have large heat-spreaders on my RAM (corsair vengeance) which I wont be able to install if I get this cooler...

I seriously want the Silver arrow, its just that my RAM says otherwise

just install it like the corsair h50, pulling air from the rear fans and if you have a 200mm top fan. that would be your exhaust right there you see what i'm trying to say

You're right. I made a mistake earlier. Unlike the setup in your link, I have one fan at the front and one in the middle both pushing. I doubt I could get better temps on air. Right now it's 23c in my room and the CPU is only 28c idle. Under load it's around 36c

Why not remove the heat spreaders? They don't much, if anything, any way

Appreciate the help brother....I know, it's like a match made in heaven.... The archon fits with literally 2 mm to spare from the side of my case....
