    I have done some research and found that PWM temps run high on Abit MB's.:cool:

    My PWM temps are running around 50-55 Degrees after a couple hours of Orthos and I am wondering if I should be concerned.:wtf:

    Is there a way I can lower these temps or should I just wing it till the BSOD bites me at 65c
    which is where my lowest allowable shutdown temp is.:twitch:

    I have never had this problem but with such a power hungry chip this is a new hurdle to hop.

    Thanks again all!:rockout: :rockout:

    :cry: All I have to say is Muah ha ha ha!!!

    I went to Koolance (Infotech) today and bought a wayy better waterblock!:D
    Dropped temps by over 10c on ortos as of now and the paste is still setting!:rockout:

    I am running A full CPU Orthos test as we speak and I am dropping 1c per 5 mins!!
    If in water cooling you have a problem *Check how old wour block is* I just bought the
    CPU-305 And it is roxxing over the old thermaltake block I was running!:pimp:

    Thanxx all!:rockout:
