I am currently running my i7 920 @ 4ghz and temps are fine. I have a Corsair H50, 35c idle (cores) and max is 72c Just make sure to find the absolute lowest setting for the voltage. Here are my settings: bclk: 200 mem: 1600 QPI: use the lowest multi Disable turbo, keep speedstep My voltage is 1.25, and is perfectly stable. Also, make sure vDroop is disabled, as it could cause your voltage to rise, thus heat will rise too. m 0 l SpinachEater August 2, 2010 12:09:48 AM If I were buying a new cooler, I would choose one from this list. http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm#INTELHEATSI... m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
