With the test system running at stock speeds and the V6GT screaming away at the full 2200 RPM the results put it on par temperature wise with the Noctua NH-D14. Coming in at a nice 54.75*C it is a 14.75 degrees cooler then the stock Intel HSF. With the V6GT running at a more ear pleasing 1100 RPM it come in at 61.25*C, 8.25 degrees cooler then the stock Intel HSF but 6.5 degrees warmer then with the fans at full speed.
With the system mildly overclocked to 3.5Ghz the heat gets bumped up slightly. The V6GT running at 2200RPM it is still doing very well coming in at 63*C it is slightly warmer then the Venomous X by .25 degrees, only .75 degrees behind the NH-D14, and spanking the V8 by 8 degrees. When toning the fans down to 1100 RPM the V6GT slips back in the pack to 68.75*C in the range of the Noctua NH-U12P single fan.
Since the V6GT did so well so far I took the system up to 3.8Ghz to see how it would perform. With the fans running at the full 2200 RPM it come in at an impressive 76.5*C, on par temperature wise the Noctua NH-D14, but again this is with the fans running at annoying levels.
