Quelle question?

Where are you from? Curious if you had fun with Google translate or if you actually know french.

It's up to you. Yet mine is still enabled... I see a 3-5C difference compared at when voltage was fixed but like I said, it's nothing major.

I have a Gene-Z, and waiting on a Silverstone FT03 and 1000W strider PSU for my new build.

The thing is, on my test-bench, testing my 2600k OC, I found out that I needed to put a 120mm fan to cool the VRMs around the cpu socket in order to remain stable for a long period of time (otherwise, BSOD at fixed voltage).
Now, that was with corsair H100, but this thing can't fit in the FT03 so I will change to air cooling.

What I am afraid of, is if I go for a tower cooler, then there will be no airflow to the VRMs, and I don't know if I'll have the same stability problems...
I don't know if the case airflow will be enough...(mostly, just an exhaust fan on top of the cpu). Does any of you have problems without cooling the VRMs?

A tower cooler should give you better airflow over the VRM's than a H100.

yes, but stil it will be almost no airflow at all, since the air is directed to the exhaust fan.

There air-path does not meet the VRM heatsinks, OK sure some air will leak to them but seems not ideal at all.

What troubles me, is I had a Gigabyte P67 that also has passive cooling on the VRMs and didnt have this trouble at all with tower-style air cooling (venomous X) and can't believe the maximus, (a supposedly serious overclocking board) needs extra active cooling :/

I was thinking of going for the noctua nh-C14 purely for this reason, but I don't like this heatsink and it also costs a fortune, so I am trying to avoid it...

That Noctua is actually a pretty good one. They can be had for pretty cheap if you wait for the right sale on NCIX.

I want to go for a tower-style cooler (which might as well be the good old trusted noctua nh-d14 if it fits....does it?) because the perform best and also the disign of the FT03 is perfect for the hot air from the cooler to be immediately kicked off the case from the top fan.
As long as I won't have any trouble with the VRM cooling of course...

DONE

added to List of >>> FIXES FOR KNOWN ISSUE'S <<<

Thank you for the addition


NOTE: I'm also working on trying to UPDATE and give the >>> DOWNLOADS = Bios, Drivers, Utilities, Manual, QVL <<< section a better Design, so consider it a WORK IN PROGRESS at the Moment, and it's Obviously a RIP-OFF of SimpleTech's work so CREDIT to him

Blinky7, review the owners list on the Front Page ... we've got A LOT of Noctua NH-D14's on the Little GENE and NO ONE is having issues w/ 'actual' Overheating that I know of , just some false readings from conflicting software programs I think.
