I just built my new computer, it has an intel i7 3770k processor that is being cooled by a Cooler Master V8. I recently overclocked it to 4ghz. Now at full load running prime 95 im getting temps up to 69 degrees (68 average). During the installation I followed the directions exactly. It may be worth noting that this is with the fan speed set to max from the included knob. My case also has excellent ventilation.
