Hey guys, i got my 2600k at 1.445 volts, and during folding, my rig hits about 72C. Is this normal? I have 2 360rads, 1 mcp35x pump, and a 6990 in the loop also. I know many of you will say 1.445 is high, but i cant seem to keep it stable any lower. If any of you have ideas how to get my vcore lower by adjusting other settings, be my guest and tell me

You can switch to another tim like IC Diamoind, MX-4, or shin etsu and that will lower temps like 2-3C.

Other than that maybe different fans/orientation.

Yes, that is good.

I think the temps are ~normal.

I'm not sure on how much heat the 6990 makes at full load though.

Yea, depending on the rpm the fans are running at on those rs 360's I would say its normal.

Yes, but your temps are fine atm. You may see atleast a 5C drop or so upgrading both you rads to the RX versions. And you will be able to run the fans at lower RPM. Also the waterblock, the XPSC Raystorm is out. It is a little better as well.
