    You have a D0 right? my temps climbed to 73 in first core max, what are your fans rated CFM, and is it push pull? my idle temps look reasonable next to yours, they sit around 39C.

    I dont think it will be easy, though, i can describe until pictures, its a antec 1200, with that midsection fan holder (R4 at 1400RPM) directing air to the push fan of the mega (1900RPM) and a pull same specs. Ambient vary from 23-28C. Maybe I could put my noctua back and compare temps, but that will take a day away from me. :(

    There are two different R4s. One has a 69cfm rating, the other 90cfm.

    A day? I think your temps are fine bro. Try to get a house fan blowing on the rig and see if they drop closer to mine. But seriously I think they are fine.

    Ok just try a fan a d see if the extra cooling gets temps down closer to mine. If it don't I wouldn't worry though.

    Man, I really want to get a regular Mega now if you can run 1.325v and not see 80C.

    Did adding a second R4 help at all and which ones are you running?

    What's his ambient? That's what decides if the temps are good or not.


    :wtf:

    I don't what to tell you since they are listed with the same specs on CM website. I might have to get one of the "lower cfm" ones to see if there really is a difference compared to my red R4.

    What rpms does everest, speedfan, or hardware monitor say its turning (if you have it hooked to the mainboard)?

    Ok lemme try answering all of this

    1. Never tried with only one R4, but the general consensos is that another fan drops like 5C
    2. I believe same range, but not sure
    3. There is not a R4 with 90CFM, i think, because both have rated 2000RPM, and no way one has 90CFM and the other 69, so i think 69 is the real spec (mine are 1850RPM)
