Also, is the 73ºC the max CPU core temperature, or CPU case temperature?
BTW, 73ºC for a CPU case temperature would be really high, 5ºC hotter than the maximum specified by Intel.
To get the core temperatures with an H50 like that, you would need cold air entering the radiator.
I've seen your claims in several threads, and can't help but wonder at what you are leaving out.
Looking at CPU temp instead of core temp?
Cold air entering the radiator?
Different definition of "loaded" than most of us use?
At any reasonably normal ambient temperature, it is simply not physically possible for the idle and/or loaded CORE temperatures to be as low as the temperatures I have seen you claim. Not with an i7 running at the clock speed and core voltage you have listed in your sig, especially considering the QPI and dram voltages you would need with your memory at the speed you have listed.
