Ok sorry for the delayed response, I tried the Zalman 9700nt on my 950 and it yielded worse results than the h212+ so I swapped them back. I was surprised by these results figured a 60$ cooler would outperform a 30$ cm cooler :/ I think it may have something to do with the clip kit that makes it useable for 1366. I'm not sure as of now whether to go with a new cooler or just except the ones im getting now. I have yet to exceed 56c even running p95 and I'm starting to think these are just normal temps for the i7 line. I would just like to keep idle below 30c load below 50c at all times if possible.
My next question... anyone have any input for me as far as multiplier vs bclk? Is higher multi - lower bclk better than lower multi with higher bclk. is one safer than the other or does one yield better temps or performance... I apoligize for all the questions I am still learning
Thanks in advance,
