But 75C is the Core Temp value. The overall temp is around 65C during gaming. So it's around the max temp Intel recommends.
Unfortunately, my Freezone is defective. Perhaps I'll use my old watercooling setup again to lower the temps a bit or increase the clock speed.

How many case fans do you have installed in your CM Stacker 830? (I am using a zalman 9500 and I really want to get the QX6700 or QX6800)

BTW, I RMAed the freezone. The new unit worked for 4 days then it died........ I was so pissed.............. I threw it in the trash. I will NEVER spend another dime on their products!!!
