Great setup. Those temps are fine. What are your load temps? That is what really matters.

yes, please do post fullload temprature.

I have similar setup as yours which i just built, i've been hitting 100 C yesterday while playing Battlefied 3 for the first time. So I got hyper 212x today and installed it. the teprature dropped indeed however its still reaches 80 and 81 degrees (though most of the time during gameplay it was around 75).

Is this normal? I feel its still high.

please post temprature while you're gaming or something. i'm interested to see how high they jump.

That is high for a stock clocked chip. Mine never hits 80C at its running at 4.2. Better case airflow will help.

I've been wondering about case flow, however I've been told that caseflow has nothing to do with CPU temprature!

In any case, I have installed a side fan and rewired everything so the case inside looks now very neat and tidy. I have not installed an upper rear fan because i assumed that the Hyper 212 will do the exhaust job considering how its positioned. I've checked the vents and the upper rear vent is indeed exhausting air.

btw, I've just updated the bios of my motherboard. my motherboard gigabyte z87x-ud3h website showed that i7 4770 is supported and the bios number was listed as F7, mine had F5 on. I assumed that if the processor was supported since F5 that would have been mentioned? so I updated to F7 in any case. I will do some testing now.

I would definitely install a rear fan. You will see the temps drop, no doubt. A cpu runs cooler with fresh air to it but without an exhaust fan, the case cannot expel the hot air fast enough.

So does that Phantom 630 fit with the 212 evo cooler (with side fan installed, and no mods)? I've read around that this CPU cooler doesnt fit in many cases, and the 630 might have addressed that. I currently have a 212 evo cooler and I want to upgrade my case...switching to SLI 660tis so I need good air cooling.
