I can't help but wonder if "Dr. Mos" is accountable for my Hydro H50 having such lousy temps ... 32.C idle and 46.C load are excessive for basic WC with push/pull exhaust at stock voltage/frequency
Yeah, my chipset temperature is in the high 50s even with changed TIM and an Antec SpotCool right over it. There's little we can do.

Dude,

Get a Zalman spot cool, basically its a circular fan on a rod, on the end of the rod you screw into the mobo screws (standoffs) then you can position the fan anywhere you want preferably if you have room over the heatsink, it has 3 settings L, M and H, keep on high also you need to connect to mobo fan header.

Im using one and my northbridge lowest temp was around 40c and highest is 55c, most of the time it idles around 45c-48c, not bad eh, and you dont have to replace the tim (too much time and effort)

Its not expensive and also you can rotate it if you have limited space, my setup im using Xigmatek S1283 with Push and Pull setup (2 big fans) and i still can manage to get the fan right next to the NB heatsink.

Its def worth investing in one, thats the one thing this board is bad with no cooling for the NB.

That's exactly what the Antec SpotCool is. XD

Can someone in this thread suggest inexpensive, decent RAM (4GB) that would pair nice with this mobo?

I appreciate it.
post #4995 of 9641
inexpensive being the key word.
post #4996 of 9641
My RAM is pretty decent. $104 on newegg. There's a decent chance you'll have to RMA it, though. Lots of people get dead modules. Once you install it, go to CPU-Z and check the frequency of both modules. If they're the same, you're good. If not, troubleshoot or RMA.

Corsair's a good company. If it has a deal with the PSU, do it.

Good luck!
