Hey Khalam, what kind of TIM did you use with your 920? Or did you use stock?

I've got a similar setup to you but my temps seem to hit 90c's at 5GHz with 1.4v, just curious if it's the stock TIM, or the way I have my 920 setup (Exhaust) or what.

Also, if anybody knows and understands this kind of stuff.. I'm looking at getting a few Scythe Slip Stream 120mm 1900RPM moving 110CFM to use in Push-Pull on my 920's Radiator, will they be any good? Is their static pressure good for this use? I have no idea what static pressure is good or not.

500RPM -- 0.12mmAq
800RPM -- 0.34mmAq
1200RPM -- 0.92mmAq
1600RPM -- 1.46mmAq
1900RPM -- 2.30mmAq

So I'd probably be running them between 1600 and 1900RPM, will they do good or do I need something better? I was going to get Gentle Typhoons, but they're nigh impossible for me to find up here in Canada, and specifically the area I live.

Static pressure is when you push more air in to case so air being pulled out is like a dam breaking and water/air floods out wherever it can. I once saw a guy using a smoke test by blow smoke into a case to see where the smoke stayed stagnant and how fast it moved out of the case

Alright, I also have a question about temps.
I'm running a 2600K at 4.8GHz with a voltage of 1.36.
My temps when browsing the web and watching videos tends to hit about 38-40c. When I leave my computer on all night, it can get down to 31-35c and at full load (Prime95 Small FFT's) it can near 75-80c.

Ambient temp is usually 23 to 25c, sometimes up to 27c. Is this normal? Are these good temps? I'm using the stock TIM on my 920, should I reseat with some AS5?

I've got my 920 working as an intake in P/P with the stock Antec fans, which are pretty great but loud, in my 800D with three fans from my old Antec 900 working as exhaust on the top as well as one 120mm and one 140mm working as intake on the bottom of the case.

Just picked me up a 620 at Frys earlier. Still need a couple more parts to start putting my computer together though.

Your (idle-ish) temp when browsing the web seems a little high to me. My ambient temp is in the same range as yours (20-25c typically) and my CPU at idle (with 2x Sickleflows at 1300rpm, for me a tolerable noise level for the performance) sits at 28-30c. I'm using the standard TIM supplied with the 920.

I'm assuming the 4 bolts holding it to the board are tight (not too tight, mind) and that the TIM didn't smudge about during the application (ie, TIM touched the CPU, then the Kuhler was lifted back off and repositioned)?

They are tight, right at the point where I'd have to use a fair bit of force to turn them further. As for the TIM, I'm not too sure. This was my first time mounting anything like this, so when I went to attach the block to the CPU I may have touched then lifted inadvertently (as in, the hoses lifted the CPU a bit while I was adjusting, maybe) but I'm not sure and I obviously wasn't going to life the whole thing up to check.

So who knows, that could be it. I think I'll probably end up reseating with some AS5 just to be sure and if that makes no difference, I'll probably pick up some MX-3 or MX-4 and try that.

I just put my 920 into my Antec 900 case tonight and I can't close the cover!! The finger that holds the fan onto the window hits the radiator so there is something I didn't want to happen.

Not only do I have to break that tab off, I also lose the fan and the related air movement in the process.
