They aren't stock, that's when it's o/c about 400mhz. I still wanna get it to about 33C or even 30C at idle then 38C under load, that would be really nice. I have a pretty average case at the moment, therefore will be upgrading it soon to a Thermaltake Soprano, this will increase the airflow alot, thus making the system cooler.
Is the Volcano 12+ really alot louder than just the start AMD heatsinks?
So heatspreaders work hey? Yeah I was looking at getting some for my RAM, but I'm not sure if they are worth it... Also was thinking of getting one for my HDD.
