I will take a look at it later, I'm heading out the door now.

Here is a screen shot of my temps while gaming. this is why I want to move to a water cooler.
Water Cooler-coretemp-scr.png

Kelly, I will look at the case tomorrow, I stopped at the pub on the way home from work and I never open my case after that The screenshot is while running at 4.0. If I go to 4.5 you can add 10C.

That is why I want to try water cooling. Will it lower them much?
If I run prime it's in the upper 80's to 90@ 4.5, IBT at 4.5 I get all the way up to the 90's. one core hit 100

I have been reading up on all the advice you guys gave, and I really like the corsairs, just can't decide if I need a single rad or the wide one up top

thanks again for all the help, just want to keep the temps down


Edit: I was playing MW3, not a really demanding game but I do have it on very high settings at HD resolution, and the ambient temp in my computer room is the usual hot summer 30C

If your case supports the wide radiator that's the way to go. If nothing else it well allow you to run the fans at a lower rpm, reducing the noise. 90% of the time I run mine at 700 rpm.

The larger unit well allow for future upgrades.

It is not offset.

Core temp seems to be the better reading 1.1409, cpu-z doesn't seem to read correct. I am set on balanced as Steve suggested for power options.

This it what MSI's software shows

I vote for the cleaner layout of the Sabertooth but it's only about looks and if the case is windowless likely saving the extra coin for the armor is worth it.

Those temps aren't startling but they should fall like crazy with a 240 bolted in ! Have you made a choice on the model yet?
