Default Re: Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme is on its way!

This is sucking...

I just started running some tests, and the CPU @ 3.2Ghz is now idling around 40-42c. Is that normal for a Thermalright Ultra 120 extreme? I was under the impression that temperatures were going to be much lower than they are. Currently @ dual prime torture test, It's holding @ 50C. From what I remember, the Monsoon II was getting around 30-35 idle and no where above 50c under load. This has me scared a little.

The system is much quieter, but I was under the impression that it would be cooler as well. Was I wrong?

BTW, I have an Antec LED 120mm fan blowing across it @ low setting.
