    I've been praising the Tt silent boost ever since I got one, and you're even getting 3 C cooler than me. I'm using 5 medium speed 80 mm fans though.

    btw, what cpu do you have it sitting on?

    EDIT: wait a minute, you said cpu average temp didn't you? what is the max temp? That's the one that really matters.

    It is sitting on top of a Athon XP2600+ using arctic silver 3. Max temp is 42 degrees C under load for an extended period.

    42? not bad at all :)

    I'm getting 40 on an 2100 palomino with AS Ceramique running Folding@home 24/7 (Room temp ~22 C)

    Water cooling is always nice. :D

    If you have a quality setup, you should be getting temperatures that are just a few degrees off room ambient.

    With much swearing and a $125.00, my pc now runs cooler with much less noise. The addition of 3 - Vantec Stealth case fans, all 92mm and a Thermaltake Silent Boost all helped to bring temps down nicely. A 37-38 average temp now, with a maximum of 43 C. To see if this was all worth it, I decided to max the CPU out for about an hour and a half at a room temp of 21 C. The results listed above are what I got and I am very pleased. These mods dropped the CPU operating temp by about 20 C and shouls ensure long life for my Athon XP. Anyone considering any or all of the above parts, please do so, you won't regret it. Highly recomended.

    The Athon XP is running at the stock speed of 2.13GHZ . Although minje seems to be a good one, it goes 2.145GHZ. Good CPU that XP 2600+.

    BubbaMGDGuy, I"m glad you've got the results you want but there really is no need at all for a second thread.
