A 10c difference is still going to bring me to 82-85c load and since I fold when I'm not gaming my system is pretty much 24/7 on load temps, so looking for something a bit more drastic.

I think I may try something similar out, NB runs haaaawt.

Now just need to figure which one to get Thermalright HR-05/IFX or Thermalright HR-05 SLI/IFX
Keep in mind, you have to cut up and re-use parts of the stock heatsink to use those, and because of the offset, I'm not so sure the sli one will work.

Marc

EDIT: This one is pretty compact, and should do a very good job.

If he is only using 1 or 2 cards the SLI one would probably work better since it offsets away from the cpu and vrm sink. You'll have to use the gpu down a slot though.

I thought you only got x16 in CrossFire with slot 1 & 3?

Yeah, but it's my understanding (correct me if I'm wrong) that I could use slots 2 and 4 and get 8x in CF?

My main concern is if I would have to cut up and use parts of the current heatsink - not skilled enough to do that at all.

Ok guys I am going to go off topic here for a min.
I may be writing a quote for my wife's company for 1-6 new computers. They would be just for basic office work nothing very taxing. I am trying to decide If it would be better to go intel or AMD. I am leaning towards AMD(AM2 most likely) because of the price factor. I would need to make these look very apealing budget wise while still having enough muscle to get the job done so that when they need more or to upgrade they think of me. I honestly have done no research yet as I have not yet gotten the go ahead to write up a quote and am not sure they will go for it.

What are your thoughts?

BTW NC I hate you right now

Hello again, fellas. I'm having a problem with my board when I boot. My rig hangs when I get to the 790fx boot screen. I get the beep meaning my computer's functional, but I can't get past the boot screen without having to hard reset. Any fixes? (Details, please. This is my first rig and I'm a super-newbie at BIOS settings.)
