    Noctua U12-S cooler on stock Intel i5-2500; Noctua NF-F12 intake and 500 rpm Antec exhaust. All BIOS fan controls set to maximum quiet mode.

    Stress tests:

    Intel XTU: hottest core reaches 63
    Prime 95 version 28.5.1.0: hottest core reaches 67 on all 3 tests

    Ambient temps constant at 27.

    Speccy pic below is at idle
    Those are excellent temps. Congrats on a good build.

    Thanks Essenbe. I bought the cooler and intake fan (and a new fanless PSU) in the last couple of months only to relieve my upgrade itch while I sweat out the Skylake hardware to come over the next weeks and couple of months.

    I'm going to rebuild with new 1151 board (probably mATX) and processor (probably 6600K) and DDR4 later this year and my anxiety has now switched to whether or not I should go to Win 10 at that time, immediately. I go back and forth on that, depending on the daily developments and horror stories, mostly on this forum. I certainly don't need Win 10, but I've got 2020 end of support staring at me on Win 7.

    I had the same dilemma as you about Windows 10. I'm sure you know I am a die hard Windows 7 fan. I was not interested at all in Windows 8/8.1. But, I decided that Windows 10 was the way to go. Assuming I live that long, I will eventually end up there in 5 years anyway. I have upgraded 4 computers so far with Windows 10 and had not one bit of problem. I just have one more to go, this one. To me, it is enough like 7, that it will is pretty easy to learn, at least the basics. I'm sure there is more there I haven't figured out yet, but that's a challenge I will enjoy. I have used every release they have come out with and had no major problems other than the forced drivers. Now there is a solution to that, so I'm happy. I fully expect some software that won't run on it for a while. But that will be a challenge for you with the new chipset and CPU too. I have dealt with that every time I have upgraded to a new CPU release. That's how I feel about it. I know a lot of others feel different. And that's fine with me. I think everyone should do whatever they think is best for them. I usually do.

    I suspect I will give in and go with 10 as soon as I build---I don't want to fully customize 7 and configure 50 apps this fall and then go through it all over again a year or so later. I haven't done a clean install in over 4 years as it is now.

    Re the forced driver thing; I assume you are referring to the troubleshooter KB3073930? I guess we don't yet know how that's going to pan out.

    Like you, I'm sure I can soon enough learn how to handle Win 10 well enough, having gone through that dating back to Win 3.1.

    My primary worry at this time is the finer points of licensing and upgrading to new hardware years down the road--snares and gotchas surrounding how the "free upgrade" and "retail 7 will retain retail privileges" thing will work out long after the free upgrade expires. Retail appears to remain retail today, but I see some skepticism on how it will behave following July 2016. We shall see.

    And to a lesser extent, I have a few semi-obscure apps that might be a show-stopper if they fail on Win 10, but I have no present indication that they will.

    I have quite a few apps installed, and when I did the upgrade, all but 1 transferred, Speccy. I have heard, but not confirmed, that Speccy has come out with a new version that will work on 10. Every time I have upgraded to the newest chipset early, I have always had to wait for some of the software developers to catch up. I imagine that will be the case with the new operating system too. But, in time, all of that works itself out. I know I am a beta tester for a company who updated their software to work with 10 on the first 2 releases. But each release required another upgrade. They just said that when the final release came out, they would upgrade it. And they did. They came out with an update the day the RTM was released and it works great. I suspect many of the software companies will do something similar. As far as the Licensing goes, they have said a retail license would retain the retail rights. Whether it will, I guess we will have to wait and see. I honestly don't know other than what they said.

    Check your windows.old folder Speccy should bein there and should run fine( I don't think you will have a Windows.old folder if you did a clean istall, but I can confirm if you upgraded it will be there). Atleast mine did without having to update it, Coretemp also appears to work fine on Windows X.

    Yes, core temp works fine, it's my Temp Monitoring program of choice. But, in the pre install it said speccy would not install and it was going to leave it out. I didn't care as I rarely use it anyway.

    Yep I received the same prompt , however I was able to move Speccy from the windows.old folder into the winX program directory and have experienced no issues with it as of this time I use core temp for overlocking , but prefer Speccy for full system monitoring. To each their own though, just wanted to offer a work around incase you didn't want to wait for the update.

    So here's my temps, I've OC'd my cpu to 4.1ghz

    The max temp is when gaming shown in real temp at high load.
