I think I may have spoke too soon.
Those first results were running all fans on low. Now, I've turned the 2 front 120mm case fans to high, and the top 200mm case fan to medium, as well as the heatsink fan to high. @ 3.6Ghz under load, the CPU is staying under 60C. With the Monsoon II, the CPU temperatures peaked as high as 65C, and worst was that it was incredibly noisy!. Now, it's noisy at these settings, but it's more of an airy sound rather than a grinding mechanical fan sound.
I guess, the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme is the new champion.
