The temperatures below will reflect the temperatures measured at idle and 100% load, at both stock speed and with an overclock of 3.175GHz. All measurements will be taken in celcius.The top graphs will be at stock speeds and the bottom graphs will be at overclocked speeds.
Hard Drive temperatures were taken with hard drive in both the front hard drive bay and the top hard drive bay. There were no variations in temperatures between stock and overclockerd speeds.
I'm impressed. Heat rises, so I had thought that the temperatures would have increased even though there is a 90mm fan blowing on the hard drive, but there is also another factor that could be pulling heat: the PSU is mounted sideways. Four degrees Celsius - I might just keep my hard drive in the upper bay.
