According to my radio shack thermometer it is 22.5*C in my room right now. I don't have the AC on right now but i don't know if that would make a difference.

I recorded those temperatures for 30minutes using Lavalys CPU stress test and the temperature monitor built into Lavalys Everest.

I did each test once and than wrote down the results Everest gave me. The only reason i did it in the first place was to see if the difference between the 120 Extreme and H50 was worth changing heat sinks over.

I am also only running a stock E8400, I don't know if that makes any difference either, I will do this again when i order my i5/i7 system at Christmas.

well then how are you getting below ambient on air that not possible. hell getting it on water is kinda hard once your loop heats up to room temp. use real temp i have found it to be most accurate. you can work out your delta and then use speedfan but you have to calibrate it

You'll never see it!

Seriously... I didn't took the time to place the wires so I can easily close the backside, so I had to force it a bit :P

Ah, seven more days.....

I am thinking of removing the hdd cage for better air flow. Maybe even mount another 120 mm fan into the 5.25 slots.

Finished my build last week. This was my second build. The first was with a Thermaltake Armour 8003. The Lancool was way easier to work with.

Hmmm, should I pick this up or the CM Scout?
Or should I perhaps wait to see what the new CM 690 II Advanced has to offer?

well the sniper is a bit too big and heavy for me
and I don't really like the looks of it. I was already pushing it with the scout but just saw how good a deal it was.

So I guess it's between the lancool and CM offering?
