I put my Core i7 rig together a few weeks ago, and it doesn't seem to be as cool as I think it should. I'm running a Core i7 920 at stock everything in a Foxconn Bloodrage motherboard. The ambient temp in my room is a pretty constant 22C. When I load Prime 95 after about an hour my temps are 62-61-58-56. I tried it for about an hour at 3.33ghz (after moving from 133 to 166) and my temps were in the low 70s (I don't remember off hand). Idle my temps are in the low to mid 30s (except one core that's almost always below 30). I took all the temps using Real Temp 3.00. The Noctua is set up in the push-pull configuration. Are these temps good? I was expecting it to run a little cooler. I can't seem to get any sort of good baseline data on this cooler and stock Core i7 performance. Some people seem to be around where I'm at, others seem A LOT lower. Should I consider lapping the cooler? Anyone here tried that? What were the results like? Ideally I'd like to run at 3.33 all the time, with HT and turbo mode enabled. I have a D0, so I don't think I'll have to bump the Vcore up (and for that matter I can't seem to move it down). I was hoping to keep the temps in the mid 60s or so. I fold all the time, so I'm just trying to get a bit more performance without wearing anything out. Thanks for any input.
