WOW!!! 80c!!! That is Extremely HOT!!!
I'm surprised it didn't go into a thermal shutdown to prevent it from burning up!
Yea...you have to have better cooling to OC a quad...a must!

Considering that sebaz is going to be OCing a 6 core processor to 4GHz, I'd go with a BEAST of a cooler!
Xigmatek has come out with a H.D.T. cooler (Heat-pipe Direct Touch) to handle this too!
ccper is using one now & says it's great & is opinion is always respected when it comes to computer HW.

It's the Xigmatek S126384 “Thor’s Hammer” CPU Cooler!
This even beats out the Thermalright 120 Extreme & TRUE coolers in performance!
