This method of placing a top down heatsink which would also include the be quiet! Dark Rock TF CPU Cooler.

Have applied that same image for placement on two motherboards, using that cooler and the temps indeed are very good, lower than expected for that type of design.

OCN is the place to get an easy understanding of putting together a decently cooled PC system from scratch, using pictures with little text. My 5 year old likes this place as well.

HW monitor is doing a software approximation. There are no sensers in motherboard or cpu.

I know but who has the time to flash their 'Temp Gun' over the Cooler and the surrounding area, to get actual temps?

We're not running precise equipment for medical research or cooling a Nuclear Reactor. Near enough is always good enough.

That wouldn't be any more accurate. All they measure is surface temp. I've had users telling me the air temp into their cooler was something becaue that's what their 'Temp Gun' reading was.

Bottom line here mate is you are not getting 100w of cooling with a single 6mm 'U' heatpipe in your TRUE cooler. Simple proof is manufacturers' specs for 6mm heatpipe.
