All this was done with just a Scythe Mugen 2 and it's stock fan.
Well... very impressive but, you got 955 BE (as far as I know all 955 and 965 are BE ones... and it's so strange for me that they didn't make any 945 model BE ), so your stock CPU freq is like 3.2 GHz and you need less voltage (I think) to run your CPU stable than me.
I could even reach 4 GHz (don't rember though what was voltage ... around 1.51) but it wasn't stable (of course) and it was when I was running WinXP. Windows 7 is ... IMO a little bit less stable (or I just can't set it up properly ?)

BUT now I bought 2 90CFM Yate Loon fans. I reseated the SM2 and am currently using a wind tunnel configuration by switching one of the front fans of my Antec 902 to the top of the case, and then using a fan holder to put my SM2's stock fan at the back of the same HDD cage that is placed on top.
Have you bought this fan holder? I mean the one which is placed in HDD cage or have you made it by yourself? I was wondering about similar configuration but in my case it's like this that my SM2 is blocked from one side by AMD CPU fan wich is attached to HFS of NorthBridge from the left and my Patriot RAM sticks are not a low-profile memory so I can't place additional fan on the right side.
Anyway... my configuration for all the fans is even similar with yours but I got more of them
- 1x 120 mm at the bottom of the case pulling in
- 1x 120 mm at the front side panel also pulling in
- 1x 120 mm Scythe (1400 RPM) at the bottom of my SM2 and it pushes an air up to the top of the case
- 1x 140 (AAB fan 900-1000 RPM) at the top of case - pulling out an air from the case
- 1x 120 (Fander Selecta 1200 RPM) right next to the big one which pulls out an air
- 1x 120 (the same Fander) at the back of the case - pulling out
- 1x 120 (orginal case CoolerMaster fan) at the left side of the case - pulling out

and... one Scythe Kaze 120 mm (1900 RPM) which is connected to my Scythe Kaze Server Fan controller and cools down memory sticks (I made one modification
It's an old photo because I have lowered the fan a little bit to place it closer to RAM sticks... and it currently runs with 1150 RPM but after my RAM reaches 30*C it switches automatically to 1900 RPM



I am just wondering how much energy all of these fans drain from my PSU :> (gosh!!!)

Quote:
Next is a push/pull with my SM2 and the 2 Yate Loon fans and finally all the air is exhausted out of the rear fan. After the AS-5 cures, I'm gonna try for 4.1 again.
I was looking for high speed fans ... and these Yate Loon (I hear about them for the first time seem to be just fine for my needs. (thought about Scythe Kaze Maru 140 mm fans 1900 RPM) to install them at the bottom and top of my case to make something like a "twister" inside but I couldn't buy them anywhere.

nice pictures

These two are just for artistic show I like how the camera actually caught the fins' movement, despite running at 2100RPM.


So, what are your CPU temp now in idle and under load with this configuration?

----
BTW! Mastiffman
I tested my MAX FSB and it turned out that 360 MHz so it's not so bad I think
I set it all to auto except CPU V = 1.42 V

Thanks for this info... I knew about MAX FSB option earlier but ... well, I was a little bit afraid to use it :> (well it was not a real overclocker attitude I admitt
Thanks for your

The Phenom II C3 Revision CPU's are more capable of handling higher than 1800Mhz than this board can give proof of.
Hey mastiffman, so far i got the ram up to 1720 im gonna try higher right now will post results and emails from msi avoiding the issue when i come back. WISH ME LUCK IM GONNA NEED IT!

MSI say 80c,but you dont want to be running at that temp for too long.

Well the lower the better really,another tip,put your gpu in another slot,if you put it in the 3rd blue slot,it will still run at x16,and will reduce NB temp as well.

i have 2 hd 5770's though. i just cant believe going from air to water would make the temp go up like that. i have a couple ideas though. gonna keep working on it.

You can still drop the top card into another slot,the difference between x16 and x8 is not really noticeable.
