The CPU does run kind of hot, When I first installed it it was running around 48-50C and at load 55C I even tried my best cleaning it up. I had to invest in a lot for after market cooling


Zalman HSF 2 120mm fans 1 80mm fan and I didnt get any cheap ones MX-2 Thermal compound instead of AS-5 and now I run 33idle when the computer isnt touched and 35 when I internet surf and about 40 when I am running Crysis.

When I use Prime65 and leave it on for 10min-25min max it goes is about 44C.

The Max I've seen it go (with out all the aftermarket cooling I put in it) was about 63 with prime65 running. Yeah thats when I knew I had to do some work to my cooling.

I am pretty happy with where I am at.
