It's just that your ridiculously wild claims made a lot of people skeptical....such as your sig. 16xAA on 8800GT cards? It's widely known that the G92 architecture is terrible at AA....65 FPS in crysis with 16xAA can't even be done with tri-sli 280s as far as I know.

But isn't an 8800GT better than a GTX 280? Just like it is better than the 4850.....I mean the number is bigger so it has to be better right?

pretty simple i have the 60 degree warning on the board that goes off when i hit 60.....

i just ran cpu test in 3dmark06 5 times today it never went off....that means it never hit 60....i know the **** thing works because the heat sink clips werent all the way in the board the first time, and the beeps started going off while i was surfing the web....

so therefore, no beep = less than 60C

pretty easy to understand....why would i make that up?

Here's why the people of this thread don't believe you, you make wild assumptions, and you just tell us to take your word for it, yet you seem very uninformed about a lot of things.

Everyone knows the i7 runs hot, we're talking 75-85C @ load on stock cooling at stock speeds, water cooling gets about 65C on load, and you claim to get 65C on air? You can put this to rest, load up coretemp/real temp, prime that CPU, and show me the 65C load.
