Me too !

I was thinking of adding Tec to cool the water somewhere on my loop.....like using some coolit products, but not sure I'll do it. My chip can do 4.2 with a v-core of 1.39, but at BOINC fulll load my temps goes to 70-73C. I am not sure I am comfortable with this....

What are your temp to get you to think about more cooling ?

I'm getting into the low 70s crunching with 1.34v at 4GHz.

Plus this case is not great for getting the air out because the GPUs block the exhaust. It was a great idea when I was on C2D, but for i7, I think it's getting overpowered a bit. I just think my hardware is outgrowing the case

I still love this case, though!

If I can get organized, I'm going to be having a nice parts sale of LC gear and other extras I have kicking around soon.
