from what i understand it does not have to be high cfm just some airmovement works wonders.
i have a very high rpm old 92mm fan from a heatsink. ( very loud @ full speed )
but i just used an old extra fan !~

many way s to mount. i use zip ties some ppl tape, some screw to their cpu block... the sky is the limit

some use 40mm some 80mm some 120mm

just some air movement helps, you can also put one in back by the vrm plate / cpu socket and it is supposed to help as well.

Fans like the Antec spot cool? or do you use something else?




This is what I did. I had 2 fans on the sabertooth but found one behind the VRM plate on the back of the motherboard and one above the VRM was plenty.

Reducing the temps on the VRM reduced the temps on the CPU otherwise I would not have cared.

It made no noticeable difference on the overclocked i5 my guess is because the CPU is not as high of a wattage.

The AMD was a unlocked 960T running all 6 cores 3.9GHz and 1.39v

I was using the ballistix elite 1866Mhz native i had 3 of the same sets on memtest x86+ and memtest x86 i got dozens of memory errors on all of the sticks even at 1333 10-10-10-27-2t-1.5v i have a fx8150 a fx8350 2 sabertooth boards 990fx and 990fx r2.0 latest bios and a m5a99xevo i also bought a brand new psu abot 2 months ago xfx 850 dark pro

Didnt matter what board or cpu i used i could not pass memtest with any pair even after crucial checked for errors before sending me using an intel board i had to send back due to memtest telling me it was full of errors i tried the passmark memtest too and same difference

I didnt witness any fault in windows but when i run memtest x86 or + i want to be able to pass but even when i dropped to 1333 at relaxed timings i could not pass and within 3 minutes the errors where mounting each test

I tried reseating, different slots even using them as single channel i tried upping the dram voltage , i tried using docp profile,i even increased the cpu/nb to 1.25
But nothing helped me get past any of the errors that where being reported

Because i hadnt witnessed a fault for 2 days i settled on the idea it might be memtest x86+ false positive so i tried memtest x86 4.2.0 from passmark and i still got errors by the second pass

I put in my xms3 1333 2x4 gig and i can memtest for days no issues or errors only when i introduce that particular ram memtest hates it
We have different ram modules i beleive i think the problem is compatibility thats why i asked anyone knew of any other memory that can run 1866 8gig modules and not from crucial

I could have got the gold ballistix 1600 8-8-8-27 4x4 but i wanted native 1866 and only 2 modules not 4 so i got the above instead

Im interested in gskill lowest timings completely compatible 8 gig x2 at 1866 tested speed but im not sure what will work

Have you tried the magic Samsung M379B5273DH0-YK0? I use it in both of my Sabertooth R2.0 without any problems.

You shouldn't have any trouble with G.Skill kits I've used them for years and haven't had a kit that didn't work yet. I ran this kit, 16GB G.Skill DDR3 PC3-14900 RipjawsZ Series for Intel X79 (9-10-9-28) Quad Channel kit 4x4GB in the Sabertooth with no problems (it was guaranteed to work by G.Skill support they tested it for me) I'm currently running this Trident kit, 16GB G.Skill DDR3 PC3-19200 2400MHz TridentX Series CL10 (10-12-12-31) Dual Channel kit 2x8GB in the Sabertooth with no problems, at 2133MHz with tighter timings it flies. Hope this helps good luck.

Ive had news about my boards under rma 1 i had 1 day that was the sabertooth 990fx r2.0 i asked for a refund it was deemed faulty by asus
The second item was my sabertooth r1 deemed faulty but because they don't make these boards anymore i get a full refund it lasted less then 8 months and then the chipset and the io crapped out

So i have 300 in refunds and the ram thats 130 il get back also and i got another 200 coming there is a 4770k bundle starting from 450£ although i wont buy a bundle im sure i can get everything of reasonable middle range for 600+£
il keep my amd fx8350 system i just need an intel cpu motherboard and memory
The returns on the amd boards is just shameful and theres nothing i can add or do to make my computer any quicker other then wait around, for several months like ive hit a brick wall

So I'm not an intel fan but I'm withdrawing from amd
Intel i7 4770k is faster more efficient and theres a lot more support out there via parts that are compatible
So based on all this bad experience I'm now determined to switch sides
Its with great regret because I've used amd for several years and chose amd over intel every time
