Right, took off my CPU cooler and it was an absolutely bloody mess in there. Wiped it clean and reapplied as per your instructions, don't know if it's still too much but this will have to do for a while because I'm out of PK1 atm. Needless to say I feel like an idiot.

My NB voltage is 1.175 and the freq is 2080mhz.

And thanks I'll run memtest overnight tonight.

Still a tad much lol. But its ok, You should get good enough temps for the time being. Use about a 1/4 of what you show in the pic. You can also pick up some cheap TIM from a local store and spend an afternoon applying and removing. When I first started building PC's as a teenager I had to. I always made a massive mess with the stuff lol. general rule is: Less is more.

Your using the bus speed to OC arn't you?

Yeah I am, its 260mhz atm. But this setting seems to be pretty stable, I ran a 5 hour long prime95 session without any problems and then played BF3 for about three hours afterwards, only one crash to desktop and that was probably my GPU not getting enough power. ( didn't happen after I upped the voltage on it)

i've always used a razor blade to spread the compound across both the cpu and the heatsink/ water block, for a paper thin layer on both.

Anyone have any suggestions on what SSD works best with the 990FXA-UD3?

I'm kind of a noob when it comes to building computers.

I'm currently considering either the OCZ Vertex 4 128GB, the Crucial m4 128GB, or the Samsung 830 Series 128GB, it would act as my boot drive, and would put a couple other key applications on it.

OC with the multiplyer, Overclocking bus speed will also affect the Memory, also do you have a C2 or C3 revision?

That's now how to apply TIM to a Hyper 212, you have to apply thin lines directly on top of the copper pipes gaps.

I personally don't trust OCZ drives, I would go with the 830 if is around the same price as the M4, otherwise get the M4 as there is not much difference in performance other then in benchmarks.

Honestly, out of all the Ssds you have suggested there... they are all great. You won't notice a difference between any of them in real world use.

The vertex 4 is based on a marvel controller like the crucial now. Its just updated and a bit faster. (I own one and its faster than my corsair performance pro ssd).

I would have to be honest and say get the cheapest one you can find.

You won't regret any of them.

That's how I did it the first time round and look at how much gunk is in there! Anyway I'm buying more pk3 so I can always reapply if this doesn't work out. So far my temps seem a tad bit lower on idle but that doesn't really mean anything.
