My suggestion is to add another fan for push/pull and if you can add a shroud to the config also. It helps get rid of the dead spot on the fan.

I am running my H50 now with 2 55mm Noisblockers (push/pull, intake), they have great static preasure and they keep my 95w 1055T nice and cool. I never break 40c while heavy gaming. And this is with a 1.2Ghz Oc on my CPU...
Great suggestion...now ya got me looking to spend $70 on fans

Those are really nice...

They are good quite fans and well worth the money. They even have their own s# to register them online. Also these fans are wired up to daisy chain them together. Here are some pics while unboxing them, and also how they look in push/pull (intake)...

hi guys after selling my i7 a few months back i was keen to get another pc again so i dropped on a good am3 deal with this mobo:MSI 790FX-GD70 and a 955.

3 questions if you dont mind

So what do you lot think of this board then?

The digi clock i suppose this is some sort of temp reading what is too high and what is about right?

Whats the best ram for this board as currently i have 3gb of ddr3 2000mhz and wanting to upgrade to 4GB if its worth it ?


Thanks

in the OP google spreadsheet you can see the ratings owners have givin this board.

The LCD poster displays post tests and then the CPU temp. 65= too high

I'm finally looking at overclocking this board. I enabled the OC Dial feature in the BIOS. Is there a good manual on step-by-step what to do? It said in the manual to set the voltages before you do anything.

The board is excellent for overclocking and although this is my first time ever building a computer and overclocking it, it's been wonderful to me.

I have found the LED reader to report the "CPU temp", which is 3°C higher than the "CPU Core temp" in temp programs such as Everest, HWMonitor, AMD OverDrive, etc. Try to keep the reading below 60°C, since the max safety rating on the 955 is 62C.

AMD systems like to run RAM in dual-channel, so it's best if your RAM was set in pairs (one going into black or blue or one pair for each color). Are your RAM 3 sticks of 1GB? If it is, it might be causing the mobo to run the two of them in dual-channel mode, while the single stick is stuck at single-channel mode. This would ultimately slow your system memory down. Most of us here use an even-numbered amount of sticks (2 or 4 sticks of RAM), so that the mobo utilizes the dual-channel mode without waiting around for the single channel RAM.

I adjusted the dial on the mobo and watched with CPU-Z. Why does it show like 900Mhz for the core clock then it will show 3.7Ghz?

Also, what's a good way to see if the overclock is stable?
