only three. usually the front two and the side fan.

Plus, it's not very effective. I'm putting my Zalman in.

Has anyone tried putting an rx240 in the top of the 500r? I'm thinking about doing it for my next build.

Really a day and night difference. Just look up how to apply tim to direct touch heat pipe coolers online smile.gif

Damn, that really sucks. We shouldn't have to mess with the thermal paste, it should just work fine out of the box frown.gif I think I might just send these cards back (I hope dabs.com will return them). What were your temps before and after btw?

On top or inside? because an rx240 isn't gonna fit inside. It will fit on top exposed of course.

Look closer.There are 4 sticks 2 black Gskill snipers and 2 red Gskill ripjaws.I have them set to same specs in bios and they work great.

To the ones asking about a fan filter for the 200mm side fan I have found one and will have it in a few days and will post back how it works out.

I am in shopping mode to replace my ASUS P5Q-E setup and do not want a repeat of the problems I have now.

Thanks

I am beginning to see the problem. Based on the three people who responded to my request (thanks folks), The newer MBs with heat sinks on the top of the board seem to have the heatsink offset from the top board edge while the P5Q-E I am having problems with has its top heatsink right at the top edge of the board. I am begining to feel better about buying a 400R and H100. At least I can go forward with a MB upgrade with a better outlook.
