I use these http://www.svc.com/y720dcd-25t1-gp.html

EDIT: and yes that is gonna be a big problem! they wont fit the cooler and they will block the ram.
ONLY 62 CFM? That blows...well no it don't

Call them and cancel the order for the fans...an email may be faster though depending on there support department

I spent 20$ on my cooler and it came with this fan....

Honestly dude unless you have BAD ambient temps your cooler should be doing better...at 1.512V with my setup i max out at 40C

So thats what i get at your voltage...(core clock doesn't play a big part in temps)

One moment and il throw you up a photo

Edit: Unfortunately i just managed to delete the 1.512V photo but here is what i do at 1.58V

push pull config...although I will go water cooling in the future, I figured I can save some money here and there until Thuban comes out, ones it does..that's mad water cooling...unless I get another check in and see my finances. In the end 140 dollars - compared to 350 that I was going to spend on the setup I made for WC..I couldn't justify it. And I was only cooling my CPU too now I have some extra to buy a sleeving kit from murdermod lol
Why did you get additional clips Mega comes with 2 sets of 120x25 fan clips for push pull. Also why 140mm Yate loons those are too big for the Mega...

Has anyone here tried using ACC to reduce there voltages or increase there overclock?

I know i am not stable on all four cores at 3.8Ghz with my vcore in bios set below 1.615v (according to CPUID thats 1.60V idle and 1.584V load) and by unstable i mean immediate crashing with Prime95 or any stress testing app

I just tried enabling 12%+ on all four cores and went for 3.9Ghz which failed immediately in Prime 95 Blend at 1.615V...and i have now set 10%- on all four cores whilst setting my vcore in bios to 1.585V (according to CPUID thats 1.552V under load) and i have passed 15 mins of Prime 95 blend so far...

So whats happening here...does ACC cut my performance in half or what?

Il need to try out 12%- now....

Edit:Even using minus ACC proved unstable...i am not sure if 0% ACC on cores has an effect but i am doing some mroe testing at 1.55v.....

Edit: Can anyone comment on running PCIE 2.0 x8 on my GPU?

I have my single GPU in the third slot ATM since the fourth blocks my boards power/reset buttons and the 2nd is a bit close to the CPU instake....my GPU puts out ALOT of heat on the rear of the PCB so the farther the better

Anyways does anyone think i will have a big bottleneck at PCIE 2.0 x8?

I don't think it's my ambient temp I keep my case open as with the lid I get worse temps I've stress when it's atleast 55 degrees in my room in the early morning and I get the same temps

should have the gd-70 setup tomorrow evening. I wanted to test out this new unit with some heat so I installed it on the i7 and it's quite a bit stronger than my nf9fx one.

So, how is everyone liking this board? I have an ASrock board with a Kuma 7750BE right now. I'm thinking of moving up to a 965 BE and was looking at this board. My current specs are in my sig. At first, I will be keeping the Ram and GPU but plan on moving to a 5970 and some DDR3 down the road.

{EDIT}-Forgot to say I'm getting a Corsair 850 for Christmas.
