So I should flip the fan to the other side and push air through the heatsink up into the other fans?


Its an 8ghz 1333 stick.

yea I would. then thatll be like having the heatsink with double fans and probably will knock down temps. also give them cables some tidying. cable ties etc

if I were you start from scratch, make sure all your bios settings are correct, maybe read your bios manual.

sometimes to flash a bios you need to have everything at stock first then flash etc.

and put your voltage to a safe level like 1.45+ and adjust the multiplier a notch test prime/ITB 20mins+ repeat till it becomes unstable. then bring the multi down one and test for longer.
