I OCed my Q9550 to 4.0 @ 1.2125V.
I have the fan on the S1283 pointing at my top case fan...
My idle temps are in the low to mid 40's.
And my loaded temps are almost 70!!
What's going on? Aren't these way to high? Especially with my aftermarket cooler?
Should I replace the AS5?
Alright, so I couldn't leave well enough alone and I replaced the AS5.
I also flipped the fan so it is pulling through the HS to the topside fan.
Idle temps are now at 42C and at load in Prime95 ~60C!
I had too much AS5 on the first time around...
It's still curing so maybe I'll shave off a few more degrees.
