My System Specs

Well, I was surprised too with the LOAD temp... It was barely moving from it starting point. Thank you for sharing your expertise 3oh6 .

And, his Northbridge is right there as well, thats a lot of heat dump in a confined space.
I'd love to get my Thermal Eye to have a look at that and see if that is the case.

Well if it ain`t broke, I shouldn`t take the heatsink off and rotate it. But I wonder if you could confirm what Soultribunal said 3oh6. Is it true that the way I put my TRUE that it would draw more hot air. Should I put it that it is facing the rear exhaust? Also, you may note that if I rotate it, then I draw hot air from my RAM modules...

Yeah I saw it, I took a ruler yesterday and I could see the "magnificent curve".
