My 3770K is at less than 30 C and I am running at 4ghz with a CoolerMaster 212 EVO. I do have two fans on it, but they only run at 5v. So maybe your temps seem a bit high. Like geekdgreen said, you only need to worry about load temps. Using folding@home with 8 threads maxed, I hit 65C.
Its goog to know, thanks for the reply's guys. I wouldn't say I was worried about the temps, but more wanted to know where I was averaging. I was also thinking if there was much difference between heatpipes and solid water coolers. Which seems that I am not finding much of a range.
it is the Antec Kuhler 620 that I am using now, and when running prime 95 for around an hour I hit 70c ~ 72c. I think I might change my fan layout around and see if I can get better results.
Any other thoughts on either:
1) Taking off the stock paste and applying some Artic 5 that I have,
2) Reversing the flow of air for the radiator, right now the fan blows the air from inside the case, throught the rad and out the back.
Another option I have is my case is designed for airflow, so the drivebays are all grill, so I could technically jerry-rig a fan in the bays and push more cool air inside the case around the CPU for the radiator to use, insteade of reversind the flow and pusing more usesless hot air into the case
