We will do a quick run to see how much of a difference the core fans make on temps.

I started the computer up and loadedinto windows. I then loaded up folding at home, (go team 45) and let it run at 100% for about an hour.  

The first run was made with the fans installed but not running. The second run was made with the fans running. As you can see, the CPU and board temps dropped a couple of degrees with the fans on. This could be enough to get a few more points out of that over clock.

What you also may notice is the CPU fan speed is higher with the core fans off. The fan is working harder trying to keep the CPU cool. This could have an adverse affect on noise levels. The core fans are practically silent. I honestly could not tell when they were on or off by listening.
