Great review- very polished
First off, thank you I appreciate your compliments

As for your question, my setup was on stock cooling at 3.0ghz, and I didn't put on the Ultra 120 until after I tested load at 3.2ghz.

I have temp recordings that I can post as charts for comparison, if you think that might be valuable information. The environment is controlled for, as ambient was always the same (20 celsius) and the fans were always on the same setting.
