You could most certainly make a shroud for your ram! Mine is just a template at this point, I used a kraft dinner box, and some other carboard, measured and taped it together

Sadly, my shroud didn't work that great. With the case open, my [nb] load temps dropped from 57.C to 52.C, which is good, but with the case closed, load temps went up from 53.C to 58.C, while only lowering CPU load temps by 1.C, which is within a margin of error for testing anyways. So. I might try some different designs, but I am really limited in space by my 120mm rad and second fan sitting right above the heatsink.

It looks like this...
*PIC*

and now my temp on NB (without OC) is 49 and max temp (with my CPU OCed to 3.6 GHz ) was 58. That's significant I think.

I used OCZ Freeze compound instead of Arctic Silver 5 I used last time I was replacing my TIM and I added more pressure on NB adding metal washers under screws. I think that caused heatsink is "closer" to the chip.
Nice I don't have room for active cooling, thus the shroud. I put Tuniq tx-3 on mine.

And what about Memory Settings? do you use all available memory ? What kind of stress level do you always put?

The reason I am asking for this is that when I set in Prime95 in custom test memory to use around 2600 MB (that was around 75% of my RAM) a temperature (I have thermal sensor sticked at the side of my RAM module) went up from 30*C to 42*C (and it was only temperature measured on a surface of a radiator - the real temp was probably higher).
That's why I am wondering if my instability issues came with higher memory modules' temperatures.

But... testing your rig for 24 hours is like a nightmare... I mean it is time consuming thing ;> especially when you want to gain stability and you run different settings very often

"Kraft dinner box" huh ? very nice hmmm I was thinking about making something more "solid" thing.
Well, with my Scythe Mugen installed I have very little space to put any fan over NB - the one I use at the moment is not attached to a radiator at one level - these LAN ports block it a little bit.

I was thinking about using your idea to cool down my memory modules - above them I got one 140 mm pulling fan and I think it could be some sollution
Another one is to install one more fan (got 120 mm spare fan) which would push air onto my RAM modules but I don't have any idea how to install this fan or how to attach it to the case

Water.

I don't mean to be brief but the best that is not going to block anything is water.

Took off the NB/SB HS and reapplied some TIM, changed my CPU Cooler to the H50 and did some wire management.

Old NB Temps
Idle: 79C
Load: 98C

New NB Temps
Idle: --
Load: 59C

Very happy to see that. However my CPU temps didn't drop at all, but I was using a high end air cooler and that's basically what the H50 is equivalent to. Just figured I'd try that before going with a single loop for my CPU, I'm getting load temps of 62C.

The H50 is not going to beat a high end cooler, thats for sure. But, it sure willr educe the temps around the socket area, specially if you have a side fan blowing air in.

Having trouble overclocking my NB higher then 2600mhz. It is 100% stable at 2600mhz under Prime95 with NB voltage at 1.25v. At 2700mhz my computer will only restart after a hard boot. I believe I've tried everything. I've underclocked my Phenom II 955 to 3.0ghz. The timings on my RAM are super loose and set at 800mhz. I've raised the voltage all the way to 1.5v on my NB just to see if it would boot at 2800mhz, no luck at all.

Does anyone have any tips on how they got past 2600mhz on their NB? I feel like I've tried everything. Would like to be able to at least taste 2800mhz if at all possible.

Are you refering to NB voltage or CPU-NB voltage,?? @1.5v,also is your 955 a c2 or c3,the reason i'm asking is the IMC on the c2's is the weaker revision,and your unlikely to get 3.0ghz on the NB frequency,and 2.8 may be a struggle as well,it's all down to how good or bad your chip is,if you have a underpar one,nothing is going to make it overclock any better i'm afraid.

Do you know that for sure? Are you using one? There's a lot of misinformation going around about H-50. Let someone who uses it tell you the truth. My system specs in my sig line are current and right now I'm running @ 3.9Ghz. I've got all four cores running and I idle in a 22c room @29c, load @ about 55c. At stock clock speeds idle is anywhere from 19-21c and it struggles to break 50c on load. All the while in a CM Storm Scout case with one fan on the radiator as an exhaust. It's mucho quiet, it does it's job and all those "readings" all of you have been doing comparing the h50 vs high end air cooling were conducted in cases maximized for airflow, so the test was favoring air form the get go. For those of us with normal everyday setups the h50 will cool better and quieter than air guaranteed.
