I have a 120mm Sharkoon 2000RPM fan.

I've used Core Temp and Speedfan. Speedfan was showing 15'C lower than Core Temp and Real Temp.

True. It's all about the loaded temps. Which for me were high. I'm running at 4Ghz and i'm gonna enquire about lapping later. There's a local company that does it.

I've disabled Smart Fan in the BIOS. So now the Sharkoon 2000 is running @ 2000rpm and my idle temps are now 40'C!



Going to load it with Prime now!

40C idle @ 4GHz is pretty good for an unlapped TRUE 120. Once you lap it you should notice a pretty big decrease.
