The H50 seems to be particularly sensitive to increases in that department.

edit: You can see here why I run the H50 as exhaust, the incoming air is relatively unobstructed, and the GPU is pushing every bit of hot air out the rear of the case. Crap pic, I know.
i haven't kept a look out on how the ambient temps changed i wish i had my lcd poster.. i have to drive 15 minutes to pick it up at my friends pc shop in burbank!

ok so what if my memory cant handle advertised clocks @ 3.8GHz+? how will i tell

BSOD is usually memory-related when stress testing, black screens usually indicate temp/voltage issues.

Don't worry about the poster, I wrecked mine about a month ago and really haven't missed it. Bring your RAM speed down to 1333 and test again. If you make it ~3hours in prime blend before it errors out or BSODs, add more CPU-NB volts.

I was having all kinds of issues with my ram voltage on auto. The ram was rated at 1.65 but was set to 1.76 on auto making games and other benchmarking apps crash. After manually setting it to 1.65 I havnt crashed at all except when trying too overclock my 5770 to high

Yeah a black and blue are different, I was having a blue! I will set my memory..but did you see the picture I posted? in the SPD in CPU-Z..am I suppose to shoot for those numbers its giving me readings @ voltages?

Manufacturer Response:.
Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. This memory package is designed for Intel specifications, but it can work for AMD platforms. On most AMD motherboards, the rated specifications of this particular memory package can not be reached due to BIOS limitations (Unable to operate DDR3-1600 CL7). AMD users will need to use 8-8-8-24 timings instead of the rated 7-8-7-24 for Intel platforms. Memory voltage 1.60V and memory frequency DDR3-1600 can remain the same. Everything should work fine then. If you have any further questions or issues, please feel free to let us know.

You can run that RAM at its rated speeds by increasing the voltage. No matter what the sticks are rated for....it still has to meet JEDEC specs. There should be no problem with 1.8v or less.
