I think I could pull my ram out rather easily, Just need a long screw drive to pop the top clips. It is also a beast, the drop in temps over a TRUE was huge. But the TEC runs 24/7 on it.

Thanks for that info, good to know!

Temps must be astounding, with the TEC always running. How is the noise of the TEC?

Price-wise, it certainly is an option to water cooling for folks like me that like to stick to air.

TEC makes zero noise. The heatsink is rather quiet too. Even with 1.4V @ 3.8GHz (HT off, because my i7 is absolute garbage), I can have the fan @ 40% and still maintain great temps.

It is a Highspeed PC EATX Tech Station which I modded so I could fit the CoolIT Boreas into it.

My V10 will 75C prime95 8-threads small fft, 1.4V 3.8GHz. However it won't be anywhere near as loud as the two 45dB monsters you are using.

It seems I never actually tried 3.8Ghz w/ HT on with the V10. With the TRUE and push/pull Nexus D12SL-12 it wasn't stable, but seems to do alight with the V10.
