The H50 sure sucked for me! Though I had high ambients it still sucked with the air con on. It would take like 5 minutes to drop from load temps back to idle temps. Pathetic cooler but that's just my opinion.

...and that right there is why I don't know what to get. I have to agree that it would take longer to settle back to idle because of the nature of how it works, but it still shouldn't "suck"... I guess there are a lot of things that shouldn't be the way they are, though. Any good alternatives?

Lol, how did I know that was coming...

You've got the same case as I do, you should be able to answer this, Snowman. How do you think it would do as a top exhaust unit, with one fan on the opposite side of the steel mounting plate (under the removable mesh top), with the radiator and second fan below it? A diagram to make that more understandable:

Gotta love the undeniable quality of MS Paint.
I'm hoping you can understand that... will a fan even fit up there? Lol, I've never tried it, and don't feel like taking everything back off of the case right now...
If so, that would certainly look a lot nicer...

Hi, I'm new to all of this computer stuff, and I just built my system like 6 months ago. I have 790FX-GD70 board, so far, I love it, but I didn't know much about the ram speed and bought DDR3 2133 8GB memory for this system. Is this memory will be ok for me to oc my 1055T? Or I need to change to different memory? Thank you very much for your information guys

I'm pretty sure a fan can fit up there, since that space up there is made to fit a radiator.

Memory is fine since it will downclock to meet standards. But be very careful overclocking a X6 on that board, the northbridge will overheat and fry your board.

hey Snowman1989, thanks a lot for your information. If I sell the set of RAM I have right now and buy 16GB, what speed should be the best for my system? I'm new to OC, so when I try to OC the x6 in this board, what is the specific speed (or multiplier) I should set for the NB to be safe? I saw someone hit 4.0 GHz on the 1055t with this mobo plus a good cooler. Thanks again

Yeah, that's true... I wasn't thinking about that...

On a side note, nhat, you'll definitely want something better than stock if you plan on OCing with this board. Be very, very, careful with how much power you use when overclocking the x6 - the GD70 was made with the 965 in mind, and wasn't optimized for two additional cores. I'll let snowman answer your questions, because I really have no experience whatsoever with the x6's...

The main thing you want to watch for is voltage. try to push too much voltage through the vrms and they will go POOF. If you ever hear a high pitched squeal stop what ever you are doing and lower voltages!

Thanks for your respond guys. The thing is, in this mobo, I cannot take control of the voltage, they are all grayed out. You guys think I should upgrade mobo for better oc performance? Here is my screenshot
