    Yes,
    but about $15.00 more and you can get the H100 if you have the room for it, which runs under load about 6C cooler on low, 3C on high.

    I noticed you're located in Havelock, N.C.
    I was born at the Marine Corp base at Cherry Point. My dad was stationed there again from 1954 to 1958. I went to grade school there in Havelock.
    That was a pretty small town back then. I'll bet it has grown quite a bit since then. I probably wouldn't recognize it.

    Steamer:
    Havelock is still a very small town and has not change much, the drive in movie theaters closed about 2002. I was born up the road a little (about 50 miles) at Camp Lejeune, the largest Marine Corps Base on the East Coast, approximately 40000 Marines and 156,000 acres.

    Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, the largest Marine Corps Air station in the world, about 13,164 acres and approximately 7,486 Marines and sailors.

    Lots of bases near:
    Seymour Johnson Air Force Base about 75miles.
    Fort Bragg Army about 140 miles.
    Fort Macon Coast Guard 20 miles, next to Fort Macon Civil War fort, surrounded on three sides by water—the Atlantic Ocean, Beaufort Inlet and Bogue Sound (erosion control was initially engineered by Robert E. Lee) that's a State Park now.
    Pope AFB Air Force 142 miles.
    MCAS New River Marine Corps 50 miles.

    Did you go for the i7 3820 and a new motherboard? I see in your system specs you got the H100. Great CPU cooler.

    There aren't many old geezers like PH who have a system that fast.
