Yea I cant see the water moving either in mine at all. Those temps look good for a stress test with those volts-have you tried core temp as well? Youll probably be at about 38oc for gaming:thumb:

So do you consider the temps of the individual cores as your overclock temps or just the cpu temp?

On intel chips, folks use core temp as nobody is really sure what the cpu temp is reporting.... :)

Not sure what folks use on AMD chips.

It really depends what the chip was like temp-wise with a similar test and OC before--im guessing you have an improvement-my opteron couldn't hold temps like that at that speed in stress tests. Are your fans in push or pull?mine are pushing. You could always reseat the block.

Temps look fine to me for load temps, but as magictorch has already mentioned, it's hard to say for sure without some kind of reference temperatures on air.

well the good news is i was able to boot the comp to 2800mhz it did not pass Prime 95 but i wonder if it would be stable playing games i ran it for an hour of just normal usage downloading and browsing and worked fine but ill test it with crysis im gonna leave my comp here in the basement for the rest of the week i was just hoping for a little bit better my room upstairs on the third floor is way too hot that i dont think i would get such good temps compared to me being here in the basement.
