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.
Well my temps in windows are like 45-48 just browsing the web, goes up to maybe 55-57 in games. tops out about 65-70 in TAT with 100% load.
