    I ran Intel burn test with 8 threads and very high load and temperatures were always aroun 53ish on the cores with realtemp, being the fist 2 always around 2C higher. idle is 29-30 ish
    Config is 2 pushpull CM R4 with 1800rpm

    At stock

    After binges suggestions, i have yet to reseat the HS, though if you believe it to be right, etc, let me know

    You want to reseat your HS until it fits your processor, you could have it on backwards. The concave part of the IHS and the convex part of the HS must match up for optimal temps. Make sure you apply enough pressure and thin TIM.

    Those are very nice temps. How loud are those R4s on the megahalem? I'm thinking about putting two on my mugen 2 when my i7 gets here.

    They are not very loud, though they have a higher pitch noise than other 120mm, but thats just with the fan next to the ear. Ive bought them because CM products are the cheapest where i live, compared to schythe etc.

    Im at 4.1 Ghz. I have it blowing sideways, however, mine is outside of a rig. Its on a tech station. Both fans push and pull, here are my idle temps.

    yo, any update dude?

    Here is a shot of my temps at full load with WCG. Look at the minimum, this is two Scythe 110's push and pull. however the 2nd fan only lowers about 1-2ºc when on.

    Either or bro. Either way there will be case fans helping te cooler exhaust the heat. However you can try different ways, some might yield better temps.

    Sorry if you mentioned already, what fan(s) you have running on it?
