Your miss understadning what we use the 55c mark for. its very common for oc to become unstable after 55c.
**I'm confused, are yout talking about AMD FX(BD chips) or Phenom (Denab/Thuban)??**
amd in general.
maybe that is our misunderstanding. I don't know which cpu he has, but in the time of writing, the BD series weren't launched yet.

pretty much this. My old thuban x6 1055T would only do 3.6ghz. Temps were at around 55c. Stock Cooler. I replaced the motherboard while i was at it installed the antec 920 on it. Temps dropped could now push it to 4.2ghz. I had a good motherboard before just didn't having the cooling. Bulldozers are the same exact way! If anything they can run a bit hotter, however anything over 50c full load will degrade your overclocking experience. It is not a wall like with phenom 2. I still got my 8120 to 4.6ghz on the stock cooler temps at around 64c, so quite toasty. Swapped over to the antec doesn't go above 50c, and can run at 5.2ghz. For my ears sake i lower it to 4.9ghz daily and its relatively silent.

I've got this case... With 800w PSU (blowing out the base of the case)

Do you think the 100 model will fit it?

I've got a 100 in a similar case, mounted at the top. The 100 takes two 120 mm fans so you should have enough room there. The key is the hoses are very short and the radiator has to be very close to the cpu. You might even have enough room for a push-pull set-up. smile.gif

As long a it is able to mount a rear 120mm fan (which your one does) then you shouldn't have any problems.

If anyone is interested, i installed new BETA BIOS F7c for 970A - UD3 board and didnt notice any improvements over F6 for overclocking.
post #3578 of 12377
Anyone have the UD5 (990fxa-ud5) model here? how are your NB/mosfet temps (for UD5 and under 990s since mobo design is same compared to the UD7 which has a completely different chipset layout ( NB/mosfets inline like most of the 990 asus boards)

debating on calling gigabyte and purchasing UD5 chipset heatsink to put on lower end 990 (990XA-UD3 myself) UD5 also has screw vs push pin which i prefer

It is not really worth it they run hot also mine will idle in the low 40's and hit over 50 on load and thats without any overclocking
