Sin, would you say it's safe to bench this board without the VRM heatsink on DICE?

I hear many people complain about noisy water pumps, and since i'm a sucker for silence i stick with Air.

Right now i cannot hear my PC while it's still OCed. That's how i want it.

And i;m happy with 4.4 atm. I don't have my final memory yet. I had to return the Corsair Dominator Platinum as it didn't fit under the cooler. So it's gonna be Gskill ARES next week.

I can bet you any money that both my set ups are quieter then what you have biggrin.gif (there is a lot of misinformation's/advice posted on forums) but as long as you happy that's all that matters thumb.gif

here is some screen shots of my Bios settings in the first window that pops up on the OC Force. and also in advance tab. DO I need to change anything? I just test 4.5 at 1.22v with no HT, I am about to test 1.22v with HT now. If still works I will decrease the Volts by .02 and test with HT again. until I get that spot that works perfect, before moving to 4.6ghz.

Also I have a question, I have WC and I wanted to put in a Bitspower Flow Sensor (BP-FS-CLBKSL) that connects to a fan 3 pin on the MB then its read like a fan on its RPMs, is there away to set up the board in bios that if the RPMs drop or stop that it shuts the board down? I see where it will make a sound but I am not sure how to hook to the front panel sound with me using the back sound on the I/O.
