    How is that overheating? Those temps are perfectly good. If you were running in the 90s I'd be worried, but ~60C at load is absolutely fine.

    1) The TRUE is only slightly better than the V8, and you probably won't see much difference. You'd just be wasting your money.

    2) For the second time, YOUR TEMPS ARE FINE. They're pretty low, even. You don't have to do a thing about them. You can run your CPU right up to 100C without having to worry about anything, so ~60C is really nothing to be concerned about.

    Zero82z this is what I told him on ocforums, but it seems that he want to spend some money.
    I wish him luck with lapping and washer mod the TRUE because otherwise it will be worst than his V8.

    He should give me his money instead. I'm sure I could find something useful to do with it instead of just tossing it which is what this basically amounts to...

    Why does it matter since you apparently ignore on-topic posts?

    Your temps are excellent.
