I'd rather use the internal graphics for an office pc.

just fill the rest of the pc with watercooling (gpu, ram, chipsets etc) and it will complete the look

hey guys, i think the graph is a little messed up. It says the average is higher than both the Delta AND the Idle. I think the Delta temp needs to be switched with average. Just throwin that out there for ya

The heck you say... the temperature is never colder than ambient for air cooling, so Average > Ambient. Delta = Average - Ambient by definition, so yes, numerically Average should be greater if Ambient is positive. Don't know what graph you're looking at to get 'Idle', but the one in the main review looks perfectly consistent.

But it makes no sense to compare Delta to either Average or Ambient anyway, because the latter are actual temperatures while Delta is a relative difference. If for some reason TTL wanted to use kelvin (or gods forbid, rankine) scale, the first entry might have looked like:

Delta: 57.25, Avg: 351.40, Ambient: 294.15

And still it's the Delta that's directly indicative of the cooling ability of the heatsink.

Imagine what temps you'll get if you had it in the Silverstone FT02 case .

I use my computer for gaming, media, and work, and I can't stand PC noise (especially when I'm using it for work), so I'm strongly consider getting this because my CPU is where the majority of my PC's noise is coming from. I am concerned about the cost however, and also the fact that I'd have to remove it just to replace my RAM, and for all I know, I might take it out of the box and find that it doesn't fit.

Were those tests made with side cover open or closed?
