Everyone's load temps are different because everyone has different definitions of "load." Some categorize it while gaming, some categorize it with Orthos, some categorize it w/ Prime95, etc.

The only load temps I ever pay attention to or report are what I get dual-prime w/ either small or large FFT's. If you bench your CPU w/ prime you'll find it getting a lot hotter than you think it does and you'll be able to test it for maximum stability.

And the Tuniq Tower is the best air cooler there is. Period.
