    No I couldn't, the clearance between the desk and the case is ~2 inches...a little less than my leg :p

    you are forgetting that my case is over 3 foot tall, in case you couldn't tell from the picture haha

    i don't know your setup, but that is a good point, but if your cold enough you can always just shatter all the bones, then it'll fit. and what is that case? you don't have it in your sig, but it looks like a corsair to me, maybe cooler master. and since i just noticed the corsair fans i'll say corsair, but what case exactly, guessing obsidian series

    Might want to update your sig dec, pretty sure those Ripjaws X aren't made by Corsair :p

    Which speed did you get? I got the 1600MHz ones.

    And I'm pretty sure you can take the latch thing on the cooler apart and mount the cooler vertically, drawing air from the drive bays instead of off the back of the 560ti. I think we had this discussion before and you said it was impossible :eek:

    uhh, really? You have a damn cold ambient temp for that. Normal room temperature is 21-22c.

    What the hell, do you live in a fridge? I live in Canada (aka cold central) and i don't come close to that. Simple fact i need to heat up my house so water lines don't freeze.

    1600 MHz. Didn't get em for the speed though, just capacity :p

    I can't put it sideways, the heatpipes don't allow for the latch to go over, and even so the drive bays are completely sealed off from the main compartment, the only space for air to more in that compartment is at the top, bottom and rear.

    The way that the airflow is, it is literally like a wind tunnel in there now from bottom to top, so there really is no reason to switch it all around. The rate of air coming in and going out, the air passing through the CPU really isn't hot at all. Feeling above my case the air is barely even warm. The temperatures I'm seeing prove just that.

    I have to say though, the last time I put my cooler on I put the thermal paste on like a gimp, there wasn't really enough there so that was probably adding a good 3-5 degrees at least, but even so, dropping ~20 degrees is nothing to sniff at

    Yep, really. You have to remember this was on a ~5 degrees night, we hadn't had the heat on and the door to the hallway which is damn cold was open, meaning ambient was maybe 13-14 at best.

    It isn't the coldest my system has ever been, I used to have it upstairs where the room it was in had two outward facing walls and a crappy rad, meaning in winter the temperature outside = temperature inside, making for a system that, for a week or two, idled at ~8 degrees.

    Right now, 10% CPU usage is about 20 degrees, so near enough idle temperatures

    Is this the processor temperature?

    It is yea, my GPU is at ~40 idle and 70 at load. To be honest, these haven't changed a whole lot from what they were before, though I'm not entirely suprised. Stock HSF, stock thermal paste and relatively small exhaust. Short of getting an after-market HSF, they aren't going to go down much, and spending 25% of the value of the card to drop temperatures when they are already pretty decent isn't worth it

    There's nothing an I7 860 at 3.8ghz cannot do fast. No need for an upgrade for probably a few years yet.

    Huh my core temp must not be working right because my idle is 15°C and I have have nothing special, cluttered case, 2 80mm fans, stock style AMD heatsink and fan. Is your processor over clocked?

    Yes, only at 3.4GHz though (from 2.8). For stable every day use it won't go too much further, or rather I am not comfortable having it much further because of the additional voltages required to keep it stable

    What are you using to monitor temperatures, and what is the room temperature?

    I am using Core Temp 1.0. Room temp is about 18°C. Here is a photo maybe I am looking at the wrong temperature.
