    There you go!

    Pending the benchmarks, but normally the computer was on 85c°-98c° on regular loads by using the Performance Profile, with the new HS is under 65 to 75, for me is just perfect, well there are only to improvements that CICICHEN can do to the Heatsink and I have already send it to him.

    Please let me know what benchs do you want me to perform.

    I have had a lot of insane work in my current job, even weekends, but I will take the time to do it.

    Humm ok but you have more detail like what paste you used and what frequency you run your processor?

    With the OEM HS @ 4 Ghz -0.140 mv in heavy gaming i'm around 79c in balance mode and liquid metal.

    I will receive my Cicichen HS today! I Will have picture and screen shot before and after during stress test.
