Hmm, I'll have to figure out a way to cool it then, seeing as I have the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX with an angled heatsink on the VRM's what would be the best way to cool it?

I don't have any chipset fans and would have to order some online, the cimputer shops in my area carry next to nothing, and what they do have is marked up 200% haha. I think I have a spare 92 mm Cooler Master from an olod Vortex Plus cooler, I'll try to mount that somehow tonight after work.

I use a regular 80 mm fan for the heatsink, and a 70mm fan(AMD heatsink fan) for the back of the mobo.

My observations about fx-6100

If I overclock with just the multi to 4.3ghz cinebench only gets 4.2. If I raise the freq to 250 and overclock to 4.2 I get 5.1 in cinebench and all of my AIDA scores are pretty decent. I don't know how accurate SISANDRA is but with it I am getting 56gflops 95.89 GIPS which beats some of the scores of a 1090t @ 4ghz. So this thing really likes to freq to be overclocked. I wonder how high I can overclock to freq? Maybe it will scale better if I overclock more on the freq and less on the multi.

I have the Cooler Master 690 II Advanced and it supports an 80 mm fan right behind the backplate, but it has to be shorter then 25 mm. Anyone have any recommendations?

Hey guys. Potential BD buyer here But I have some questions about it that I cant seem to find answer's to else where. I use my rig for gaming and am looking to get a stronger(AMD) CPU. my total goal is to have an eyefinity(3x 24'') gaming rig. I'll be using 6950's or 6970's in crossfire. can anyone tell me how Bulldozer CPU's work out in this kind of a set up for gaming? Thanks for your time in advance!

Not at all worth it. I went from a 955 BE @ 3.8 GHz and barely notice any improvement in games, you're still GPU limited in my opinion and bulldozer would not be an upgrade for you at this time, maybe Piledriver though.

But gaming aside, it is an upgrade. I just can't recommend it as an upgrade for purely gaming.

I know i'm GPU limeted right now, but when I just to CF 6950s/6970's From my understanding my 955 will be the bottleneck. looking at what can be done about it Thank you for the advice though!
