What I was saying is it is fine at 4.4, if I push it any higher I dont like the temps.

What revision is your board?
Example: 1.0 , 1.1, 3.0

It makes a difference.

If you have a 1.1 I may be able to pass on some excellent advice, that I received here.

Read through a hundred or so posts, unfortunately all I could stomach, so forgive me if this has been asked/answered before smile.gif

I recently purchased a GA-990FXA-UD3 board, but haven't started my build yet. I currently have a Thermalright 120 Extreme which I would like to use, however I was curious about the memory slot clearance. It's in use right now though, so I can't easily move it over to eyeball it.

Anyone with a similar giant-size air cooler (Tuniq Tower, etc) have any input? Is low-profile RAM necessary, or is there enough of a clearance for today's typical oversize-heatsinked RAM?

I guess I should also throw out a request for RAM recommendations while I'm at it... Looking for 2x8GB for now, higher freq/tighter timings would be nice.

Thanks,
/Z

If you are running 2x4GB or 2x8GB the recommended DIMMS to run are #1 and #2 , #1 is the furthest from the cpu and #2 is the second closest. ( see my post here http://www.overclock.net/t/1023100/official-gigabyte-ga-990fxa-series-owners-thread-club/4430#post_19337778

In my case this solved clearance issues for me as the ram is far enough away from the cooler, if you have all 4 DIMMS utilized I would check specification clearances on your cooler model .

Have any of you guys pulled the thermal pad off the vrm's and replaced it with good cpu paste? I'm wondering if that would cure my throttling issues.
