Nope. Thats the highest Ive been. I might try in a couple days, after I take my motherboard out and take apart the factory heat sinks, clean, and apply some AS5....try to get some lower NB temps. I've seen my CPU up and over the 4ghz mark, I just want to get my temps lower right now.
I have a perfect case for watercooling (Cosmos S) The radiator can be mounted on the top of the case and there is a ton of room inside for the pump, etc..
I don't want to buy a kit, I would rather piece it together myself.
Be nice to get an EK waterblock on my 4870x2
But making my system watercooled is too much money at the moment. So we'll see after I apply AS5 to my factory heatsinks.
