I think I'll do the adding small fans on to those heatsinks just incase
If the heatsinks feel "really cold" to your fingers why bother with the fans?

You want me to take pictures of my motherboard. kind of pointless to me w/out it being in a case or on a bench while under going stress test's. Besides I have enough hardware to keep track of w/out opening more hardware and worrying about loosing something like the user manual or driver disk during a move. I'll probably be moving again in the next month or so...

What are you waiting for? Open her and take some shiney new pics for us!
I downloaded it in the past but the free downloadable version was very limited in useage and I did not like it much but that was a few years ago now and was on an Nvidia Chip'd mobo any how.

Cool I'll have to check it out after I get some ram and get some time to bench test this bad boy...

I Still have not decided what ram I'm going to go with.

@ Any one w/ram overclocking experience on this mobo... Do you all think I should start off with at least 1600MHz & faster or is 1333 fast enough if I can loosen up the timings for faster spd's. Some ram modules like OCZ, Corsair, Crucial, G skill etc etc can be overclocked with pretty good results.

However I have found in the past on my 939 mobo's that some ram modules don't play as nice on one mobo as they do on others. i.e. my DFI NF4 SLI DR won't allow me to overclock my G skills as high as on my DFI NF4 SLI DR Expert.

My stock voltage is 1.35V and I can run up to 3.6ghz with that voltage, except my temps max out in the high 40s/low 50s with P95/LinX.
i just got the new coolermaster HAF X case the other day and my system temps have dropped a fair bit from my ****ty antec p160 case. and i thought i would try prime95 and see how stable it was, well managed to run 1 hr without issue, then i got a BSOD. Temps were bouncing from 57c to 60c on stock volts, i have ordered a scythe ultra kaze 3000rpm fan for my cpu cooler {xigmatek red scorpion} should drop temps a bit more as mine only runs at 1500rpm and 60cfm where as the ultra kaze pumps out 133cfm!

AMD loves tight timings with RAM. CAS6/7 1333 is way beter than CAS8/9 1600...

Thank you. I thought I read some where that w/higher NB clocks the system becomes more stable when faster ram is used.

Take note that the CFM rating isn't everything, but is one of the major factors in air-cooling.

Would you recommend 1333mhz with CAS6 or 1600mhz with CAS7? I know there's barely any difference between the two, but what would you recommend?

I would say the 1333 CAS6.

I have the CAS8 1600Mhz OCZ BE sticks and I tested from 9 down to 7 and 7 is the sweet spot in read/write times. I'm going to pick up these bad boys and have the best of both worlds, hopefully without compatibility issues...

To be honest, iy sounds like they (HS Surfaces) may not be making good contact with the chips. The HS bars are really sensitive to the touch and easily bent without noticing. I took mine and pressed the VRM HS up to a mirror. it proved to me that SB was sitting a little high so I tweaked it back a rechecked it using the mirror (Large hard wall mirror with no flexing). I was haing the same issue. Just a thought.

This is why I suspect that they're not making "enough" contact. Or there's to much TIM. I literally put this much on both of mine MoBo chips "0". Maybe this much on the NB. "0"...

I have 2 of those and I have them set to idle at 975rpms and 2500rpms at full load. Even going from 2500 to 3000rpms can really increase the ambient noise!

Yeah but Cas6 @ 1600Mhz is even better.


Look at Cas7 1600mhz...


Now Cas5 1333mhz


Here is some Cas6 1704mhz for you.....



And Some Cas6 1736Mhz


And Finally some Cas6 1800Mhz with 2925mhz CPU-NB. This was fun but needed more voltage than I was comfortable with...

This is Very true. Static Preasure is the most important factor in cooling then comes Noise production and then CFM (or switch those last two).
