    thanks, I already redid it.
    After it burned in, I started getting some more reasonable temps. I went a bit overboard last night and played mass effect for something like 5 hours, and I actually could see my cpu temp dropping during my playing time (started around 56, ended at 48-50).

    Wow. I just finished Mass Effect, and this is all I can say: What a ride! That was probably the most fun I've had playing a computer game in a long time. Well spent $50 =)

    Anyways, my cpu is running at 34-36 C idling, and 44-49 under load.

    Already started OCing the GPU, trying out 701/1752/1022 (core clock, shader clock, and mem), I'm going to test it for stability then work up from there.

    Right now I'm going to wait a bit on the CPU, and just enjoy the games I have because I'm going away on Thursday and am not coming back until 11 days after that. Going to referee at this "Olympic Development Camp", where basically the best under-14 girls in california go for training(this is soccer). Either gonna be fun, or hard as hell, I can't decide which...
