Well finally sorted ... All fitted and running fine.

My two Scythe S-FLEX fans arrived and the extra Ultra120 eXtreme fan wire clips to clip the other S-FLEX on in the push/pull config.

Anyhow Turned the rear fan around so it now sucks in, Its on medium setting. The two front fans both suck in and are both on high setting, The top 200mm fan is now the exhaust fan, Its on medium.

Ive turned the ultra 120 horizontal so it now sucks ant warm air up towards the top 200mm exhaust fan with the two new Scythe S-FLEX 1600RPM 120mm fans in a push/pull config.

Here's what it looks like.




And in the case(partly built)


Here's the results.

As you can see not a massive difference in idle temps.



But damn, Look at the new loads temps .... A massive massive drop. ... Hit a high of 59c but then dropped back down and pretty much a solid 57c!

Now you can overclock. Nice job.


To be honest, Roadhog was right. 70C isn't insanely hot. These chips run warmer naturally. My chip is at 4GHz and it maxes out at 74C. But in games and all my apps it doesn't get hotter than 60C. Not many real world apps can actually stress the processor unless you're doing hardcore multithreaded computations.

Cheers guys.

I literally just clocked up to 4GHz like 10 - 15 mins ago. Im running prime95 Small FFTs stress test as i type. Ive had to bump the vcore up from 1.1v that it was at for 3.6GHz ... Its now at 1.28v ... Its hit a high 75c ... Seems to be staying at 75c solid.

So you guys think 75c is not a dangerously high temp?

Uhh, dunno where you read that but 70c is considered cool...

Anything under 95c is fine.

Prime95 isn't a stress test anymore for these cpu's. You need to run LINX on it.
