ASRock X58 Extreme
Core i7 920 @ stock speed (2.66)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
OCZ Platinum DDR3-1600 3x2048MB
Big case with 4 fans, and good airflow.
Even at stock speed this machine goes over 80C after just a few minutes of prime (idle around 40). I've build a similar machine with the same cooler and a i5 750 @ 3.6, wich runs 70C after 24H of prime.
The Hyper 212 Plus should be able to do a better job, or am i missing something?
I've used arctic silver. The fan on the cooler runs 100% (2000rpm) all the time.
This is a picture af another rig i build. The one concerning this thread is build exactly the same. (besides from the components) The case is a modded antec p180
It's a old picture, the power cable for the CPU now runs on the back side, just lige the ones for the upper/back fans. Airflow should be no problem.
There is also a fan in front. (missing in this picture)
