It's alright, the dark eve blue does look good.

I think I'm just going to have to buy some teal, blue and black and mix up small quantities until I get close enough for my tastes.

If anyone else feels a different color would work too let me know and I'll add it to the ones I'll try.

yeah it can be really hard to tell from a computer screen what will be a match! Altho my mushkins are almost perfect, had they been a flat blue they would have been a perfect match!

I've been considering getting a 1055T 125W from newegg and lapping it, but what are my odds of hitting 4.0GHz 24/7 on the GD70? I haven't seen it much, TIA.
People have better luck reaching 4.0ghz stable with the x6 cpus compared to the x4 cpus. Yes, they do have a better memory controller, I've seen screenshots of people hitting 3000mhz for the NB as well.

Also, look for the 95W version, as it's max temp is 72°C instead of the 125W's 63°C, meaning it can handle higher voltages.

So there should be no problems with the x6? Have I to note something?
The x6 cpus can handle 4 sticks of RAM more efficiently, but OCing your RAM up to 1700-1800mhz will depend on your RAM, not necessarily the CPU's IMC.

Thanks for the replies. Wow the 95W 1055T is impressive, I'm very well considering getting it but I have some questions..

Are these chips almost out of stock everywhere meaning should I buy one ASAP while I still have the chance?

and for my more important question, seeing as these chips aren't Black Editions I will have to set my FSB to 286 w/ the 14x multi to achieve 4.0GHz.

Can our boards, the MSI 790FX-GD70, handle 286MHz, or greater, on the front side bus?

The dye will worsen your temps as well as gum up your loop. If you really want color use colored tubing.
I agree!

Yes, these board normally can handle 300mhz on the HT Ref Clk without and issue! And the cool thing is that the NUmber all work out well.

@ 300mhz HT Ref Clk.

CPU = 4.050ghz (x13.5) OR 4.2ghz (x14)
CPU-NB = 3ghz (x10)
Ram =1600mhz (1:2.66) 2000mhz (1:3.33)

So this will be interesting to see how close to 2ghz Ram I can get with my ram... (Rated for 2000mhz cas8)

Thanks for the advice Mastiffman, you always been a great help.

But I'm a little bummed out now, after trading emails with tigerdirect's senior account manager all morning he replies back to my order with this:

"Sorry for the confusion I previously interpreted the wattage incorrectly. The item# A79-1155 was actually 125W. We have corrected it on our website."

This friggin' blows, how am I gonna get my hands on a 95w now?

do any of you guys mess with HT link control in bios? i've always left mine on auto instead of selecting 8bit or 16bit for incoming and outgoing. im all of a sudden curious. i still have mine on auto cause im working on getting this thing to get past 6 hours of prime95 @4.2ghz. i've been able to run benchmarks at this speed, just never stable enough to get past 1 hour of prime. now im up to 6. and its on air.
