Ok, my setup is a i7 870 @ normal 3.6 Ghz with a HD 7770 in a stock xps 8100 case. Long story short, I ran OCCT for 30 seconds and got to 83C then it lagged so much I couldn't turn it off and had to hard shutdown. The max long run temps is 75C, max normal is 80C and max max p) is 90C. All temps are here. CPU idle: 37-39C load: ???, on normal gaming 76 or so, stress tests IDK. Startup: 27C GPU idle: 32C load: 64C fan 25-55% HDD:40C On speedfan temps 1,2 and 3 are 127, 22, -61C Ambient, 77F, 35C. I might get this cooler, this fan to add to the cooler and this new case fan. I have heard that you can turn off hyperthreading to get up to 10C cooler, is that true?
