- Bus xMulti - 200.01 x18
- RAM Speed - 1066Mhz
- Vcore - 1.44v
- HT link (not sure where to find this info...default? 1000?)

- Chipset - 790X
- CPU Cooling - Zalman CNPS9700

Xigmatek S1283 user's I call you.

Apparently Xigmatek has been using several different fans with different CFM's.
What fan did yours come with?
Mines rated at 72.1 - 99.6 CFM, 800 - 1500 RPM and 20 - 32 dBA.

What are yours rated at?
Thanks

I have now seen:
56.3 CFM
77 CFM
71-88

i believe the original which was 72-99CFM one was ONLY during the first few batches, other than that, its been replaced with the 56cfm one. mine came with the 56 one because..it sure didnt felt that strong.lol but it was quiet. if yours came with the 99. awesome! anywya, i replaced mine with a scyth kaze 2000. probably should grab another for push/pull. but eh..x38mm fans on zipties? im kinda sketchy..lol and you've lapped yours already? how did that go? ive always been thinkin about it, but never got the time to pick up a few sheets to lap. =T

56 CFM here. I replaced it for two adda's(push/pull) since they have awesome static pressure.

I didnt lap it i bought it lapped . Looking over the HSF and using a straight edge i find the bottom is completly flat and is very shiny too.

My Base:



Personally i would not lap this HSF Because it may end up looking like this!


^^Now thats not nice!^^

If you do lap it, i think i (personally) would not bother much with 400 grit but with 800 and 1000+.

I was also looking to by a different fan possibly a scythe kaze too.

According to a thread i found on google Push+pull setups dont seem to have a great effect on lowering temps. This is due to the the fins not being very dense, although making low CFM fans more effective.

It wouldnt since you're not OCing the memory, only the cpu. If you wanna OC the memory you have to up the clock freq(fsb) instead of just using the multi.

Have you tried lowering your HT and NB speeds? Or tried playing with ACC?

Have you tryed FSB overclocking?

Why so loose though? I've got PC2-8400 and mine are at 1000 MHz 5-5-5-15, yet you have PC2-8500 and you should have at least 1066 5-5-5-15
