So far, it runs stable at 3.8ghz...Is that a thermaltake cooler? How are the temps on the i7 and have you overclocked it yet?
BUT...the fan has to be up about half way (making it pretty loud).
As for temps, it idles around 41c at 3.8, and under a bit of load (gaming) it hits about 55c. Nothing really that stressful.
I'm going to go for the Noctura (sp??) cooler with the turd brown fans! LOL
