Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1

yeah i remember ur post. il keep an eye on ur progress as im gonna get the fx-8150 be once my daughters birthday is out the way. im running a similar cooler to the one u bought too. corsair h50 which was a vast improvement over the arctic freezer i was using. a friend of mine has a bulldozer with a corsair h70 i think oc'd to around 4.5/ 4.8 cant remember egsact number and he has good temps.
my phenom 965be idles @33c n maxes out @49c during intel burn test. ive read loads of comments saying they r no better than mid priced air coolers but 1 they dont wiegh as much,2 dont take over ur whole case. for around 50 notes u cant go wrong.
will be good to see ur results as our setups r very similar. roll on may then i can get my bulldozer
depending on ur results i may go for the cheaper fx-8120
