I have a Thermaltake Tsunami Dream with the Asus A8N SLI, duel Geforce 6800 Ultras, and my problem is my processor (Fx-55). According to my Asus Probe right now, after having been on 6 or so hours, having been put through a tribulating WoW session is 45C. When actually playing the game, it reached 60 or higher! I just updated my computer from an Intel P4 and I hear the AMD should run hotter, but is this too hot? My Intel with my vantec after-market fan never crossed the 50 barrier. Is my Zalman all-copper 7700 doing a crappy job? Thanks, I have a lot of new, hot stuff in the case and don't want to melt anything.

Assuming I get cooling down, I hope to OC like a mofo.

Current temps after a few hours running (tell me if anything's hot)
Cpu: 43-44C
MB: 40C

Your case is clean and clutter-free, right? 60C load is off even for a FX-55 (esp. with a Zalman 7700-CU)

You're running the cooler without the little Fanmate, right?
