with just stock clocks
what would my friend see for stock clocks he stresses 8 threads
he makes it all the way to 70 C
is that Super high

i've been telling him somethings wrong.

2x80mm pulling in from the top

1x80mm pulling out the back directly behind the heat sink

1x120mm on the front pulling in

not sure of the case but the cooling seems like it should be more than enough

Ati 4870 1GB GPU

71-75 C load

Im telling him this is insane

he has re-seated the heat sink and
still nothing ....yes I even asked him make sure he removed the sticker ;) 

These temps are intel burn test.

anything else you can think of ?

you got 2x80mm+1x120mm pulling air inside against one tiny 80mm exhaust :( 
revarse 2x80mm on top or replace them with 120mm -make another exhaust,check processor for flatness look for valleys
