It is, that's how I managed 5.1 stable on a h80i. Top suicide run is at 5.3 (but not stable).http://valid.canardpc.com/st6swj

Dear God that hideous lol. Please tell me you don't have a side panel windowed case smile.gif


LOL

I have the same setup but even uglier! Fans on everything! Zip ties everywhere, hastily cut out back panel hole for socket fan...Jerry rigged fan mount for VRM's...

Whatever works, man! Made an extension tube to run a Delta Turbine from under the desk so I could tolerate the noise while torture testing with an 8350. Butt-ugly setup but effective.

Bet your cut out isn't as ugly as mine!

badly cut hole in side cover for mobo/vrm cooler

My fav tip was removing the I/o cover and fitting a fan to pull the hot air that was being blown over the VRMs.

rear fan with cables in place
fan for extracting from rear

There's over 14 fans in total, I even put a fan on the southbridge.

Thanks. A benefit of getting a cheap mobo: you get a future project of re-seating 'sinks with proper thermal paste thumb.gif



^ dat IO panel fan!! xD

The reason was that my VRM's were in a spot that was dead air flow, so out of the box thinking or in this case out of the case thinking led to this.
VRM cooler visible through where i/o cover should be.

As you can see, the VRM's are visible with the I/o cover removed

So With a fan mounted on the back pulling air out of the case I cut my temps down A lot. I also used smoke matches to test the airflow as it was something that everyone suggested.

that fan at the back is genius, if i have a small enough fan to not intrude on the USB ports and moves a half decent amount of air im tempted to do that myself, i think i have some old 70mm ones from my old 771 xeon cooler XD would like to see if i can get a bit more out of my cpu but coolings the problem for me XD already got one 70mm fan over the VRM's and socket at the back of the board, the more VRM cooling the better after all tongue.gif

haven't been on here for a while but i have accumulated a bit of experience with the board over time so i must just say that for the price and form factor of the board they do do really well, im surprised it could even run an 8320 much less at 4.5GHz (granted with allot of VRM cooling, and ill be adding another fan tonight and moving one af120 onto the sidepanel of my case to blow over the other heatsinks dotted about the board)

I have a couple questions. The LLC settings are listed as - auto, regular, extreme - I seem to get less overclock ability with regular compared to auto; I haven't tried extreme yet. Am I correct in thinking that auto is the medium setting here? People say that on the one hand LLC might be introducing impolite voltage spikes when the cpu is under stress, but it will allow greater overclocks at lower Vcore, thereby netting lower wear and tear over time in mundane usage. I'm using LLC auto right now but I kind of want to walk the safe road here.

The other thing I wanted to know about was the HT-link and NB freq wrt RAM speed. I noticed manicd had his RAM pumped up pretty good while cranking those two frequencies.



Are people noticing high temps when they crank those two frequencies? I was able to get mine from 1592 to 1912 with that extra bump.



Here is some RAM pr0n because I went and bought the fast stuff, it was only about 10% more than regular RAM. The AMD branding got me all excited rolleyes.gif

I always had better success using "auto".

I've had 5-6 of these boards coupled with 965 BE's, fx 6300's and an 8320 or two. My temps skyrocketed when I overclocked my RAM over 1600 MHz. XMP my 2400 MHz RAM and the CPU was running 10-15c hotter over 1600.
