Windows 7: Custom Computer at 70C While Gaming (Is it a bad thing?)

Have a peek at this one. I have it on my machine. It has a lot of clearance plus it can be installed in different directions, so it could be away from the memory if need be.

I've had it for two months, 1st in a HP and now the new 'puter.
It has been great since day one, quiet and most importantly keeps things cool.

Did you use the included thermal compound?

Yes, when I installed it in the HP. There was no problem with it.

On the new one, I used Arctic Silver 5, it is better, plus I already had it from doing work on other 'puters.

Okay. In another turn of events, I noticed that Speccy is saying each core is running at 4.5ghz. Core Temp confirms this. This might be the problem, since I haven't purposely OCed my system. Any ideas on what might be causing this?

And finally in a final turn of events for the next couple of weeks....I have to send my mobo in to get it fixed. While updating the BIOS I did it wrong and pretty much soft-bricked it. So we will see what happens. Does anyone else have good suggestions for a new fan/heat-sink, I like the one COMPUTIAC has suggested (COOLER MASTER GeminII S524); but I would like some more ideas before I settle for one.

I don't know if it's possible to rearrange your wiring to un-clump it. It can allow more airflow.

Yes I can rearrange my cables. I was the one who tired then together in the first place. Once I get my motherboard back I will make it all nice and shiny.

Just remember Semicolon when you get your motherboard back do every thing slowly, neat, clean and tidy. You will be okay.
