ASrock z77 extreme 4 mobo
Antec p208 case (2 120mm fans on tops pulling out, 1 on bottom pushing up)
Evo 212 (blowing straight to the 2 fans on top)
artic silver 5 paste
Been running Prime95 for about an hour now @4.4, and the temp is rock stable at 77/78 (according to the ASrock monitor). It runs at around 31 at idle. That should be well inside the safe zone and will likely be less in real world applications like gaming etc, correct? Voltage is holding steady at 1.235.
I let it run for an hour @ 4.2 and I don't think it ever went over 72.
I have the exact same gear as you even the artic silver just different case lol.
Waiting for my evo 212 in the case and im hoping ill be able to get it to 4.5 as well as overclock my ram.
