Variation between core temperatures is normal. If you only have a 4C difference you're lucky biggrin.gif

Yeah I'm starting to see why someone recommended getting a cooler, stock fan is pretty weak lol. The only problem I can see happening is not being able to fit, say a 212 in properly because of the dimensions of the MOBO is smaller than most normal ATX sized motherboards for whatever reason.

How do you mean it has different dimensions? The board is physically smaller or something? It doesn't affect the cooler mounting holes. If the stock heatsink fits, then a 212 will fit too. I have 212+ on a micro atx mobo.

Well when I got it I was expecting something similar to asus boards I've seen, but when I was installing it I noticed it's much shorter than I expected. But that's good to know regarding the 212, I'm sure I'll get one eventually but no real reason to at the moment as I seem to be running cool enough.

As has been said, the mounting holes are the same as any 1155 motherboard.

I have a 212 evo on my e3g3, so I can tell you it works great!

I get 58c at full load on prime @ 4.5Ghz.

Cool, I was just a bit worried cause my mobo doesn't cover the back plate of my case completely so theres a small gap there. Wasn't sure if I'd be able to add a cooler at all.

Ditch the GTX460 and grab a GTX560 at the least. Better card, more powerful, uses less power also.
