    Jeeze... Thinking about temps and seeing a few mods being done, curious if anyone else has done any and what they're results are? Thinking about doing something myself, just not as "permanent" as I still treat this system as the day I bought it fresh on release day.

    I'm averaging 48-75 C on my Core i7 and 38-81 C on my 7970 with Arctic Silver and just a plain ass cooling pad.

    So interested to see what's out there for mods... :p

    My King of Interns style cooling mod using the usb-powered fans from a Cooler Master U3 notebook cooler.
    As well as some ultra low profile RAM heatsinks from ModDIY.

    Even without Directx 12, apparently Witcher 3 and GTA V both favour more than 4 cores and aren't particularly fussed about speed or IPC. Should be fine in terms of CPU performance for awhile :)
    Still waiting for those pics you promised King
