Which cpu is this? It sounds like it's one of the new thermal monitor 2 core. Those run about 30 degrees cooler :) My new 550j should run at a comprable temperature when my stock atx (instead of the btx fan that it shipped with) arrives.
It's an SL7PX, with the cooler core. I still have to get my ambient down past 100degF due to that damn Raptor. I should've known it would be a problem, but so far it's 30 degrees below the redline for all my components.
