the artic is fitted now yes. The temp of my room is cool if i have the window and doors open for air flow. the comp sits by the windpw also.

thsese temps are what i get when the room is cool. it hits 50c the moment it boots up the creeps up to 56c . if start gamimg it will hit 67 c + . if the room is warm then the temp foes rise but this is normal.

its the bootup temp that says it all really.

fan wise i have 10x 120 mm + the hsf. some are 1000 rpm some 2000 rpm.

i have messed around with the fan speeds and positions etc etc . its as cool as a fridge inside even the psu fan throws out cool air

TIM wise i use MX 2 + i cleaned it with artic pro cleaner and purifier.

Hey Moose. I ended up doing two things– I got a new, inverted ATX case (Lian Li PC-101) and got a new heatsink to replace the standard Intel one (Thermaltake Ultra-120 Extreme) and now my E8500 doesn't get above 30 C. Perfect computer .
