It's not as powerful at cooling as the bigger Noctua's, but IT FITS smaller cases smile.gif is quiet smile.gif and keeps things Cool enough IF you're not going for OC'ng extremes, 4.8 MHz or under and you should be fine as long as there's some decent airflow inside your case.


Ok, I thought that Q-Fan only use PWM and no DC regulation.
Thanks for the help biggrin.gif
I will definitely buy the NH-U9B SE2 this week !

Wow 289 pages, just shows I haven't been here for awhile it was like 230-240 pages lol. Anyway Ive found 8GB Mushkin Redline @ 1866 MHz for £65 that's like 75-80 dollars (I think), I'm just not sure if its 100% compatible with the board but I think Il just go for it anyway. Il post some updated pics when I can, with the little changes I've made since first installing the little Gene .

hi kevink82 - you might want to try running LinX to compare, i think linx stresses the cpu more than prime - higher temps too.

here's a thread worth looking into

I use QFan as LAKF describes. Works great with my 3-pin fans. I set mine up via the BIOS options. Still, I wish more cases offered PWM fans standard.

Hey guys,

So after reading through all 289 pages of this thread and testing out the new board. I'm having difficulties making the system stable and having IBT pass its second run. It's not even overclocked either. Even when it is overclocked I'm still having a problem with it running stable with IBT. I'm not sure if it's just a memory problem or what.
