    This the the only Athlon II/Phenom II chip I've owned. I know the temps can't be trusted, it's just strange that they're all around the same.

    I've literally installed OS, drivers, updates and a game. nothing else.
    My 'net rig has Win7 x86 with loads of stuff installed and AV running etc., and only 1GB of RAM. Right now, while typing it's at 599MB used so Win7 must have really good "memory management"

    When I unlocked my CPU, it sat at 129deg. constantly. Just thought I'd chuck that in there :p

    They're reasonabley normal temp readings, their not bad sensors, just badly calibrated, if it makes any difference when unlocked my CPU. Used to read 128c but after a BIOS update the cores now read 0c

    In other news do any of you own android phones, if so I can reccomend changing to the GO keyboard and launcher, they are really good, I used to dislike touchscreen keyboards, but this is actually pretty good, it's as if it knows what I want before I type it!

    Okay, this is more of a brit language question, my gf is from england and she keeps saying "fringe" I guess their bangs, but when I call them bangs, she says it's something different. Is she just doing this because I make fun of how she calls cookies "biscuits" or are they different?

    I think a 'bang' is a type of fringe but overall I have no idea what a bang is( a loud noise?)

    I guess it's the same thing, when you google bangs you get fringe too.

    What amazing 120mm fans are there? Ones that are stupidly quiet. I am thinking of getting the re-badged H60 from aria that someone mentioned in this here thread.

    18C in Cambridge here. Qualifies as cool in my books. I like temps between 10-20. Rained a bit though, but since that I am camping indoors, its fine.

    Gentle Typhoons? If you dont mind colour and price Noctua ones? Noiseblocker are good too I heard.

    You mean this??
    http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials...120 Water-Cooling CPU Cooler ?productId=43968

    I always thought Corsair just goes to these company and just stick there badge on and go yeah this is our amazing water cooling solution and up the price.

    Just like how the new audi tt quadro 2.0 tdi has a golf 2.0 tdi engine in and you pay the premium for driving just the chasis with a golf engine.

    +1 to gentle typhoons, get the 1850rpm ones and then run them at a lower speed if needed.

    They've the best static pressure/cfm/noise balance especially when used on radiators.

    I want some of the 4000rpm ones but I need a beefy fan controller :laugh:

    I'll probably get one and stick it to the side of my 6970s. I bought a PCI fan controller for a few quid so it should be pretty good.

    Only thing im not happy about is the fan itself costs about £20
