Default Re: Anyone running a Q9650 here?

I've got a Q9550 @ 4.1. Those are good temps. My idle is about 32, my load about 50 but I have an overclocked HD5870 in the same loop as well. The only thing that will get you lower temps is to use higher speed fans on your radiator. Or back off the overclock. I use med speed yates on a fan controller on my PA120.3. I'm more about the silence though as my fans are always on low.

The only thing you can do is lower ambient temp or more airflow over the radiator.
i7-2600k @ 4.6Ghz, Zotac GTX 680 (1310/7000), 16GB DDR3 1600, 2 x 1TB Samsung F3 RAID 0, Windows 7 x64, CPU and GPU custom watercooled
