you know, i thought it was simply a case of people not having any airflow around the NB like you outlined with watercooling, but last night i noticed the NB temps up to 70C in the BIOS at the end of my session when i was bringing temps back up. the NB has never been that hot before and the base of the heat sink was far from warm let alone what i would consider to be hot with a 70C chip sitting directly under neath it. so i really don't know what to think at this point.
i am doing everything i can on another board for a review right now but i am planning on some non-scientific testing on the Classified NB soon...you'll want to see it
My System Specs

Who cares about anything else, I have a 10GB RAM drive.
