I agree work with what you have first, dont just buy ram yet, and then when you run into a wall of any sort hit right back up and well help you to our fullest ability
p.s. also, the best air cooler possible you can get would be a big typhoon, also the cheapest alternative to going water cooled, just lap it with as5, maybe replace the stock 120mm fan with a high cfm one to drop temps a little and youll be good to go!
oh sweet, thanks alot guys, this helped me alot. last question and an off topic one. how come when i run cpu-z and click on the memory tab, there's no info on my RAM. i mean, it only shows the size of the ram, the rest of the fileds has nothing in it (grey'd out)..
You could try replacing the stock BT fan with some of the fans mentioned in this thread. My AMD rig noticed a 6-10C drop in temps with the Delta fan on my BT. I also use this H2O kit on my 3.0E and it easily hits 4.0 with load temps never above 60C in a 75F room. My idle temps are 38C with the same room temp.
