Yeah it dropped down to about 34C at night...

I'll have to keep an eye on it on a hot day and see how it does.

I live in California, so it gets pretty damn hot here, but the town I live in is a wind-tunnel so it usually stays cooled off if theres a breeze, and my house is well insulated.

i think on a day that was 95*F here in Pittsburgh, my stock HSF kept it at around 44*C idle.

You got to have a Fiddle in the band!

Haha, I remember doing some hardcore air benching one day when it was sleeting. Opened the sliding door but kept the screen closed and put the CPU intake to the open door. The core got down to 9C. Although, I'm sure the 90% humidity was what caused my Q66 to take a dump.

But anyways, it seems like your build is kicking off well. I'm excited for when you get your TRUEB. I'm dying to see how far a 955BE can be pushed on a 790GX.
