    Wolf, you do know that you can rotate the mounts for the cooler (the ears you mount on the cooler) 90* so that the cooler can be pointed with the fan towards the front or rear of the case. I think if you set yours up like that so that the cooler was exhausting right into the rear case fan you might see better temps since the hot CPU air will be pulled out of the case directly.

    Great read!

    Thanks - didn't realize that, but it does make sense. Not that I want to pull it out of the case anytime soon

    Congrats! It was a pleasure to read your first hardware review.
    I was shocked that it wasn't about PSU's.
    Nice cooling idea and pricey too.

    You can try to heat up CPU's with S&M (bottom of the page, click on версия 1.8.2(160). )
    I don't know another program who heats up a CPU more than S&M.

    Wolf, that was an excellent read. I am with mat though, I would turn the unit so its exhausting to the rear fan. It might give you a slight improvement on the temps.

    Currently running one here on my FX57.

    Front Display
    Idle = 18 - 19
    Load = 25 - 26

    CPU
    Idle = 26 - 28
    Load = 44 - 46

    Yeah, I'll probably do that at some point when I have a free moment to shut down the computer. For the time being, I just went by the pics in the directions.

    I'm still running the overclock - hasn't been powered off since the OC testing

    Cool. Ya lol pulling it back down to change that could be fun. I think I can pull mine off without removing the board, but it will still be a challenge.
