If your asking me, I haven't tried, cuz my h60 died so its out for Rma and haven't installed the H100 yet.....being lazy biggrin.gif. So i'm stuck on the stock cooler for now. I did run it at 4.0 and it was rock solid on stock cooler, but i wasn't happy with my temps so its stock for now.

I dont think i can wait anylonger, damn I hate my current motherboard, I might go today and get either the gigabyte ud5 or the sabertooth, do you guys know if I need to update the bios or should they come with a bios ready for FX8120 cpu?

I dont have a spare cpu on the house to flash the bios.
