NB is down to 48c under full load and socket is at 52C (v core 49C). I'm happy with that.
Makes me think if reversing my fan would be better.
My side fan is now set as intake.

By the way guys, I was wondering, just got an r9 290x, and playing BF4, put all Ultra graphics except MSAA, and still have fps drops to the 40's sometimes in some maps/situations..I was wondering if it could be my CPU, surely this CPU (with clocks at like 4.6 like I have) doesn't limit much in BF4 (even 64p..) right ?
I was thinking maybe it's one of my OC settings that isn't well optimized, so I took a screenshot of aida Cache and Memory benchmark :
62.8 NS sounds legit right ?
I just saw my DRAM/FSB ratio is 28:6 also.. that's weird I thought I had it set to 1:1, any hints on how to do that ? I believe I screwed it when I tryed to increase the north birdge clock speed.
Any idea what could be wrong other than that ?
Unless it's just BF4 horribly optimized (wouldn't be surprising eh !)
Help is much appreciated !
I don't know if this helps.
Here are a few shots from my aida runs:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Off topic, what you guys think of my new highest GPU score

It is a bit scary indeed.
Specially since proper brands also pop...
Me... can't remember when one died on me.

Have you tried putting APM Master Mode on "Disabled"?
Did you put cooling on your motherboards vrm sink already?
I am still pretty sure that is the problem.
