Yeah I'm pretty sure that sticker alone drops temps a few points.

So far I get about 48c-50c on the cpu at idle and around 52c on the GPU at idle

After about 30 mins in game (Call of Duty World at War) I'm seeing temps peak at 61c on the CPU cores and 74c on the GPUs

Before doing some serious wire management the temps were a little higher but everything is wide open and clear now so that is helping. I also plan to swap the stock Dell fans with some that perform better.

I'll do a little more testing w/ some longer gaming sessions but so far everything is fast and rock solid.

Dell Studio XPS - Intel Core i7 920 | EVGA GTX295 | 6GB Dell Ram (Crap Ram) | 1x WD VelociRaptor 300GB 10k RPM | Antec NeoPower 650 Blue (Modular)
