    Just setup a new rig, I'll post full details when I finish work. Wondering what sort of temps I should be getting with a 2500k cooled by the Corsair H80? At the moment I'm getting 40ish idle which seems a little high? The CPU hasn't been overclocked.

    Its a coolermaster sniper case p67 pro mobo.

    The H80 cooler is new to me with very vague instructions, think its set up correctly though, sucking air in I believe.

    Thanks guys

    40ish seems ok; make sure the h80 has it's fan blowing air OUT of the case (exhaust)

    Turned the fans around so they blow out saved me about 5 degrees not bad cheers. They really need clearer instructions though.
    You have any idea of a good fan set up for that case?

    Cheers

    40C for the CPU or the cores? 40 for the cores is fine. The CPU main temperature is the one to concern yourself with, don't believe anyone who says the core temperatures are the most important :p

    Can the H80 radiator be mounted at the top of the tower ?
