had it at 4.3 for a laugh, idle temps then was high due to vtt ect. 40/43c max 78c

thats with 2 Apaches Push/Pull. @ 750RPM idle speed @ 7db + 1 side 140mm 600RPM @ 9db

Silent & Cool

+1 H50

Do Not Use the fan that comes with the H50 lol, it sounds like a original Xbox360! Vroooom....

so a H50 + 2 Fans + extra Screws add up.. so its not really that cheap in the end.

P.s, if you don't OC..
on Stock, 2.66Ghz my idle temps are like 26/29c with the H50.

can you tell me how you did the OC to 4GHz

(I have no idea how to OC btw.. I only know how to use softwares for realtime OC like ASUS-EPU Engine 6 which is from what I've heard.. doesnt really give good results compared to a manual OC)

well i kinda cheated. i used somone else settings, then just adjusted the Vcore and other volts & stuff. till prime was stable after 8hrs. its enuff! no need to run prime 24hrs unless you want to be soooooo sure it aint going to crash, but then something in windows might BSOD ya system lol..

this guide was good to get me to 4Hgz.

but you might want to look @ this..

BIOS settings to get 4GHz on the 920 D0 using the ASUS Rampage II Extreme motherboard.

i had some cpu temp issues was running around 50c at idle and over 60c when loaded. i got the cpns10x quiet and with the same o/c idle is 36c right now and have not seen it over 52c. i also did a case mod and put a fan directly under the cpu fan and run this fan at 1500 rpm for less noise i also have a fan sucking air out at 2600 rpm at the top so the air comes in at the cpu cooler then goes straight up and out the top and obviously runs petty cool. stock clock on my cpu is 3.4 and am running at 3.9. where the computer is located is around 21c all the time. you might try that cooler. but beware it is huge. it will fit in a mid tower case though.
