I have a Zalman Z11 Plus case with a 73cfm fan in the rear, two 43's in the top, a 73 in the front, and a 48cfm fan on the bottom, and my case is configured for negative pressure. My CPU cooler is a Zerotherm NV-120 which runs at full blast and moves so much air you can feel the excess coming out the rear when it's turned up. Do you really think a fan over the VRM's would help?
This has nothing to do with the board IMO.
The board can pull off huge OC numbers albeit some issues. But anyway he decided on going the Haswell anyway.
Quoted here are his cooling set-up. Which I believe is the culprit to his OC'ing adventures. He did mentioned too, He has the same issue on his Biostar MOBO. And his 970-UD3.
So he totally has some idea on his OC'ing yet he was just in very denial to the fact that his cooler can't keep up with is temps. If UD3 rev3 can gain a stable OC of at least 1GHz with an 8-core CPU, how much would suffer to power up a QUAD then? NO HASSLE IMO.
Failing out a core after 10 minutes would just mean he needed a slight bump on the Core Voltage anyway. But he refused. 6 posts from the time he asked for help. After the half of his posts, he's already dead set on bashing the board and going the Blue way. Sounds very much like a
to be honest.
