I'm very happy with my current temps. I have my 2500k very lightly overclocked (roughly stock settings) at about 4.2 GHz at 1.245 V. This was as low as I can take the voltage and as high as I could take the speed before it started becoming unstable.

Ambient temps in my part of California were around 31-32c.; I was sitting idle at around 39-40c, and under full load with about an hour of Prime 95 at around 59-60c (minor fluctuations).

I've pumped it to about 1.325 V at around 4.6 Ghz and didn't see temps rise above 63c.

I replaced the stock fan with something quite a bit slower, since the stock fan sounded like a blow dryer at 100%. It did an amazing job at keeping my temps down, but it was just too loud for my taste.

When I get the chance, I'll start pushing my overclock to 5Ghz+. I've just been busy with class and what not, and the California ambient temp has been a bit high. I plan to keep this setup for at least three years (which is how long I kept my last comp), so I'll only be doing heavy overclocking for benching results.

Some of my results might be slightly skewed though because I don't think I applied the thermal compound properly. My temps could probably be lower if I reapply my TIM correctly.

Nice results... Especially with that high ambient temperature!

Also, I thought the TIM was already on the heatsink like the H50/H70?

Here is an update for my rig.

Gigabyte recently released the new F3 bios for their motherboards. It fixed some kinda reset error, but it also allowed a way greater control over my systems v-droop.

For example, on the p67a-ud7-b3 boards, there used to be only three v-droop settings: standard, level 1 and level 2.

Now, it goes from level 1-10. Level is probably the most precise from what I've seen. I've been able to set my voltage level to 1.26 and 1.29 with as little as +/- .02 v-droop. This has made overclocking a lot easier to work with, since I'm not trying to compensate as much for the v-droop by having to increase overall voltage.

This is about 8 hours of testing with Prime 95 using the standard blend test. Ambient temps in my part of CA have been particularly high, so this is probably reflective in my current temps. I'll continue to see how far I can keep pushing this with the Kuhler at a later point.

Thanks It was between the Blackhawk and CM 690 II. If the Arc Midi was out, I probably would've picked that. Might have even considered the Shinobi by BitFenix had they chosen to use a standard, untinted case window.

nice case, get rid of that plexi and get a completely clear with no fan mount/openings and that should look great!

This is just some more stress testing. With the new F3 BIOS from Gigabyte, I have a lot more control over my systems v-droop. I'm starting to move down to 1.285 v at 4.4 GHz to 1.270-1.275 v at 4.4 GHz. I'm trying to see how low I can tank it before it starts becoming unstable.

I did try to to take my CPU to 5 GHz, but I think I'll have to read a guide for that as my system gets pretty unstable even with some heavy voltages.
