That's an eye opener for sure.
Like some of the posters over at that link,
I'll never "stress test" again, when I'm not in the room.
Thanx for posting that link.

I just got a spot fan for my VRM's.
Time to shut down and install.

Im using a Noctua NH-C14 for case clearance purposes. Its in down blast configuration push/pull and I oriented it so that most of the fan overhang is over the VRM heat sink. I have not had an opportunity ( as this was built last night) to check what the temps are. I have no room for another cooling solution in the area so I hope this is sufficient.

Quick cell phone pic because A.) Im proud and B.) you can see the configuration.

Looks great!

I bet the cooler will keep the north bridge nice and cool as well! What direction do you have the top fans blowing? Looks like using them as intake would be a great benefit.

What ya cooling under the heat sink anyway?

Oh, just saw your post count... WELCOME TO OCN!

Well thanks!

This is my "upgrade to this century build" as my old build was this:
DFI Lanparty NF4 Ultra-D Motherboard
1.8Ghz AMD Opteron 165 (993 socket): Overclocked to 2.5Ghz
G.SKILL 4GB [x2(2 x 1GB)] 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400
Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX 256MB: Overclocked to 455MHz
Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB 7200 RPM
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series 550W PS

Hiding under the Noctua is an FX-8350.

Thats a good point about the top two 140mm fans... I left them as exhaust but I might switch them to intake and switch the side 200mm fan to exhaust. Although I will have to remove the Noctua for the 3rd time !

Edit: After some quick testing last night the heat coming off of the VRM and CPU heat sink is pulled out of the case nicely with the top to fans exhausting, quite noticeable to the touch. With a 4.6GHz clock at 100% loading temps leveled out at about 53 C.

I have a question, will installing a NH-D14 on the UD7 block the first PCIe slot?

Take a look at this pic:

*knock knock* does anyone know if 990fx chipset still has issues with 600 series nvidia cards in SLI? I am referring to the issue that used to be when running 2 600 series nvidia cards and enabling SLI the FPS would be like 5fps in any 3d applications/games?

So on the FB BIOS for Rev 3.0 .... I can not change ANY settings from auto to allow me to OC. The only thing it will let me do is change the memory profile to extreme which runs my RAM at the factory timings versus the relaxed timings in auto mode.

I know people are saying features are missing in the BIOS to allow for proper high en OC'ing but all I am able to do is turn off the dynamic auto clock ramping so it stays at the stock 4.0GHz .

Why can I not change ANY settings at all regarding the multiplyer, FSB, voltages etc??????

I've got a GA-990FXA-UD3 rev 1.2 BIOS FFA and I've upgraded from a Phenom II X4 955 to a FX-8320, i noticed that my G-Skill PC3-10700H that I ran at 1600Mhz and 1.7v hold now 1.472v in Windows at the same frequency maybe thanks to the memory controller and the Northbridge à 2200MHz. I'll try to lower the timings though.

I didn't try yet overclocking with this CPU but my Phenom could reach 4.0 GHz @ 1.45v in BIOS so I'll try 4.5 GHz with the same voltage.

Anyone with this board and this CPU could tell me the "reasonable" frequency they've reached under 1.5v ?
