Intel Core i7-920 @ 2.66GHz, 2.93GHz TurboBoost
OCZ Triple Channel 6GB 1066MHz DDR3 Memory
Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2
Two Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB
Antec Earthwatts 500W
Thermaltake Armor+ LCS
Thermaltake BigWater 780e, came installed in case
Thermaltake TMG1 Radiator, added by me as rear fan
Thermaltake Blue LED Smart Fan, added by me as top fan
Also, the LCS came with thermal compound, and I'm not sure if that is good compound, cheap compound, or what, but I got some OCZ Freeze thermal compound, and I'm not sure if it's better or not.
Could the compound possibly be the problem?
If so, is the OCZ Freeze a good compound?
I'm using OCZ Freeze and a XIGMATEK Dark Knight 120mm CPU Cooler.
My Core i7 920 is overclocked to 1.275 Volts and a frequency of 167x21 or 3507 MHz.
It idles from 45-50C and maxes out at around 77C. A little hot, but it's not gonna kill it. However, I'm pretty sure that when I built it I didn't put on the thermal compound right. I'm afraid that it's gonna get hotter though since it sits right in front of the sun and it's coming to Summer, plus it's been about a month since I cleaned the dust and the temps have already raised a couple of degrees. The fan is ALWAYS at 100%.
