If you have an abit kt7 and alpha pep66t fan combo ignore the instructions to mount the fan on the front. I have tried both front blowing, and rear sucking. The latter proved even this alpha works better sucking. My 800 overclocked to 950 is 25C idle, and 37C under full load. The front blow metheod average 28C idle and 44C underload. I will be switching to water cooling soon however, anyone want an alpha Pep66t and delta 25 thin line fan at a decent cost? email me

How on earth can you get your temp ot be 25 idle??? Can you tell me what kind of conditions that your computers in, I'd like to reproduce your situation. I have a blizzard water kit but it killed my cpu once already and I don't trust it anymore.

Well I have an Inwin Q500 case. In the front is a 120mm fan to insure solid airflow. In the rear is a 60mm fan to help pull the air out along with the powersupply up high also blowing out. All cables are tie banded up and out of the way as much as possible. I made sure the heatsink was smooth (ultra fine sandpaper). For a thermal compound I used an equivilant of artic silver. MBM reports cpu temp at 27C, board temp at 25C, and front entry temp at 20C.
