Here are the specs: Case NZXT PHANTOM 410 WHITE GAMING CASE Overclocked Intel® Six Core i7-3930K @4.3ghz ASUS® P9X79: INTEL® SOCKET LG2011 32GB KINGSTON HYPERX GENESIS QUAD-DDR3 1600MHz X.M.P(8 x 4GB KIT) 2GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 670 - 2 DVI, HDMI, DP - 3D Vision Ready 120GB INTEL® 330 SERIES SSD, SATA 6 Gb/s (upto 500MB/sR | 450MB/sW) 2TB WD CAVIAR BLACK WD2002FAEX, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64MB CACHE (7200rpm) CORSAIR 750W ENTHUSIAST SERIES™ TX750 V2-80 Processor Cooling: SPIRE GEMINI REV.3-THERMAX HDT TWIN FAN CPU COOLER ARCTIC MX-4 EXTREME THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY COMPOUND Everything runs really well and the temperatures are stable on all the components. However, it has been suggested that the temperature of my CPU is way too high. Tests: IDLE - 4325 MHz and 1.360v Real Temp GT - 48C ASUS AI - 40C SpeedFan - 48C Core Temp - 48C Tests: 100% Load - 4325 MHz and 1.360v Real Temp GT - 88C ASUS AI - 56C Speedfan - 86C Core Temp - 87C I need some guidance here. What do I do to reduce the temperature? Without reducing performance?
