I guess im after some peoples temperatures with watercooling an overclocked tbred/barton on high voltage (say 1.85-2.1 volts). Now that its cooled down a bit the ambient temp is normal in here, about 20C and i get 42C idle and 48 load with my 2100 @ 2.3ghz on 1.9 volts. I personally think this is very good for air. Even at 2 volts/ 2.36ghz it might get to 54c loaded. So what do you wet guys get?
Thermalright SK7 and Smartfan 2 combo. Im very pleased with this setup. My pally 1700 with a good coolermaster HSF used to idle at 51C and reach 60C+ in the same case at stock speeds. Just shows you how good air cooling can be.
I have always wondered if my temp were good, my 2.53 ghz P4 runs idle at 22 degrees celcius, and the system is at 29 degrees celius. I have 6 case fans, two in the side window, a 120 mm blohole i cut in up top, 2 exhaust fans in the back, and a single front fan.
If you havent smoked up at least one component of your system, you havent pushed hard enough!!!
it is imposible on air cooling to have your average system temp warmer than your cpu temp...think about it...what if you cooled your refrigerator with 50 degree air....it would warm up to 50 degrees...
So easy to fry yet tastes so good...
