Yes.

IMHO If you go into the higher ranges, say 4 ghz, (one thing leads to another) you would be better served by a more aggressive cooler.

Yes, I think so.

I suppose I should have just looked at the post immediately above me to get the answer. He's even using the same case as I am. Hyper 212 Plus it is, then.

I'm comfortably at 3.8GHz for my i7 920 (C0 so i gotta have higher Vcore then D0)with the stock fan. I eventually plan to push-pull to help lower the temps a few degrees.

More normal results for high TDP.
For me TRUE clone (Cogage Spirit) looks more appealing for serious OC and less money than the original.

Can't say i can trust/believe those results burebista as per results i've gotten myself. I am get 25C ambient, at 3.91GHz with stock fan on it and i don't go over 75C. Maybe they didn't mount it properly or use enough thermal paste.

"Normal"? Haha.

27C is not normal ambient temp

Neither is Linpack an accurate representation of even a worst-case scenario when it comes to a load scenario. Even my Lightwave and Accurender programs don't heat up the CPU as much.

In all reality, "normal" is just a figment of people's imagination since everyone's situation is different. When it comes to ambients the best thing a reviewer can do is to try and encompass as many people's conditions as possible and test at a standard room temperature (anywhere between 20C to 25C).

Normal for results SKY. As I said countless times that HDT heatsink is not able to cope with top heatsinks in high/very high TDP area. That's all what I want to say in my posts here.

And as I have said countless times before: you and I are of different opinions about HDTs.
