    Hey Art, thanks for reminding me of CoreTemp. Guess I needed to update from RC4 to RC5.

    I'm amazed at how responsive my PC is while at 100% CPU utilization. Temps are never higher than 165 degrees F and I can watch videos, play SimCity, etc... while folding@home is running my CPU at 100%, in the background. This CPU (i7-3770k) impresses me more every day!

    Very good temps!

    I have a Corsair H60 Dual Fan (Push-Pull) in my QX9770 @ 4.0 GHz and It performs very well (75ºC ~ 80ºC fully loaded).

    For my 3930k I'm thinking in a Corsair H110i 280 mm Quad Fan (Push-Pull).

    Excellent! The "push-pull" configuration really makes the difference! When I added the additional fan to my radiator, my temps dropped almost 20 degrees F!

    If someone is serious about a push-pull-set-up, then have a look at the pictures above. That was my 2600k @5012MHz (!) on Air.
    The set-up is based on a Thermaltake FRIO-OCK, which got the stock fan's removed and replaced with 2x EBM-Papst 4112 NH4 and got combined with a NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller.

    Just have a look at the amazing throughput of 355 cubic-meters per hour.

    I bought the fan's from onlinecomponents.com. They're not cheap, but worth every cent.

    PS: Sorry for the bad pictures. I couldn't find the data-cable of my CyberShot at that day and had to use my crappy Galaxy-2.

    That's a lot of dusts.
    My family computer placed on a bedroom, haven't been cleaned in like 2 years and when i checked the dust, it was still tolerable.
