yea weird it's so high. maybe the cooler is not evenly touching the top of the cpu? or your thermal compound is not evenly spread out?

Oh the stock cooler? For overclocking get a better one. Cooler Master Hyper, V8, TRUE, Xigmatek have some sick ones.

http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/28...ing-guide.html

This is one of the better links for a how-to on o/c phenoms and phenom IIs.

I have the Xigamatek S1283 I paid $25 CAD for it and it works better than the Zalman 9700CU I had on my 9850BE rig.

I'd definitely recommend it for bang/buck reasons.

with the 965BE 125W @ STOCK SPEEDS AND VOLTS it idles mid 20's and loads at about 42'C in my antec 900

With my current o/c it idles at 30-32'C and full load with intel burn test @ 53'C

If you're overclocking and changing settings and want to determine system stability more quickly than Prime95 can provide, download Intel Burn Test. It works on all systems and can make sure that you're reasonable stable in about 10-15 minutes. It's a linpak utility. Some people even claim that it's better than the prime95 blend test as they were prime stable but could not complete the intelburntest on standard. I always run the test on maximum...I used it to get my 3.9ghz o/c, haven't run prime95 or orthos yet...but I haven't had a single blue screen/black screen/restart etc. after passing intelburntest.

Cheers,

JC

In my antec 900 the fan is on the "bottom" blowing up toward the large 140mm fan. I believe that the top of your CM690 case is open...if so you'd want it to blow either out the back...or out the top...since heat naturally rises directly out the top of the case would probably be optimum..

One thing...on AMD systems the S1283 only bolts on one 1....meaning 1 direction. My Zalman could be mounted all directions in 90' intervals.

Like this. Also you always want the fan blowing across the fins.....not sucking thru the heatsink....as the fan blades actually compress the air slightly allowing it to absorb more of the heat transfer.

The xigamatec one should be great. any decent aftermarket cooler is fine. there are tons of reviews out there.
Most people use Artic Silver 5 compound, but I am using the stock one that came with my heatsink, and my temps are good.
