I have an i7 that idles at 50 degrees celcius and the room is ac'ed. The case is in a closed compartment but shouldnt the AC have any effect on it?

With Stock cooling in a closed compartment you are lucky to be at 50C . The ambient in the closed box is more than likely higher than the room temperature compounded with the stock heatsink.

Ok. That made me feel much better, also I have Arctic Silver 5 =).

But still using the stock HS. High ambients equal high temps

How will a Cooler Master Hyper N 520 help my temps? (in the same compartment with ambients around 32 degrees celcius? (summer really kills boils things up)

Anything will be better than stock. I have a TRUE and Noctua NH-U12 and I idle at 31 to 32 C in a well ventilated case in a 75F room. Loads are dependent on voltage and clock speed but the TRUE on a DO 920 at 4.1 does in the mid 60's C under load. Not sure how that cooler will do since I dont have any practical experience with it.

Your going to be better off with, just about any, after market cpu cooler! Stock cpu coolers are made to just meet the bare minimum requirements, to cool your cpu. Most all after market cpu coolers are made to surpass the stocks, by far!

 

i7's do run hot, and will do better with liquid cooling, but if your sticking with air, and have a somewhat wide case (8" or more), I would recommend at least a 120mm rifle type, preferably that uses 2 fans instead of just one. Thermalright makes very good cpu coolers, also ZEROtherm!

What coolers would you guys recommend that are in the 30-40 range?

I would also recommend a OCZ cooler, but I might think about the Gladiator, because it has 4 heat pipes, (rather that 3), and would fit the i7's slightly bigger profile a little better. I would also recommend using a backplate so it holds more snug to the cpu!

I am trying to win a Vigor Monsoon III LT on ebaya Noctua NH-U12P 1366.
