Not really happy with the Tuniq Towers actual core temps on my brothers build though, but the chip itself is cooler :s
I noticed that too. The Tuniqs work much better with the Thermal paste that they came with. With AS5, I was getting 36 degrees in BIOS, with their thermal paste I was getting 30.

Really?

I'm getting around 19 degrees C in the BIOS, and then on Asus Probe when I get into Windows around 24 degrees C

But on Core Temp, I'm getting around 37-36-32-32, which is almost the same as on my Zalman 9700 running the Q6600 at 3.2GHZ idle, which sits at around 38-39-35-33, and my brothers is still at 2.4ghz...
I'm hoping when its cured it'll be slightly lower.
But maybe the load temps will be less than on mine?

Haha, I can't even overclock his anyway it seems, as if I set the overclock to manual in the BIOS, I can change the multiplier, but can't touch the FSB.. :s
And this is on the Asus Striker Extreme...hmm

Well, that was when it was really hot in my room. I get like 34/40 idle in Everest, and this is with 3.8Ghz on my e6600.

Yeah, maybe if I do manage to overclock it, maybe the temps will actually end up lower than mine, since at idle, there may not be much against the two heatsinks.

Well, if I can manage 3.2GHZ on his, I'll be happy, but with a Tuniq Tower, 3.6GHZ may be reachable.
I can reach 3.6GHZ easy on mine, but temps at load are around 65 degrees on all 4 cores, which may be slightly too hot for 24 hour use when pushed. You think?

well i lapped my hsf with 600 grit sand paper, after cleaning it.

went to install it and the pins on the HSF to get pusehd down got bend so i had to pull it off, i was using the line method before I had to pull it off, as I did that I decided to just smuge it around on the hsf and cpu so i ended up using the cc method and i have lost 8*c from lapping and as5

65 under load? That is high, but if you aren't using the processor to test orthos demos you should be fine lol.

Are they both G0?

@Thelis

well if your setting up WC you have to get a high end system because air cooling is more effective than any WC system under $300
