Cool N Quiet should work just fine. Maybe you need to adjust the System Power Options to Ballanced and have the system run full CPU under intensive apps and run the CPU at 10% while idle. Should work just fine and ramp up when gaming etc etc.

OP I should be under the Had it list redface.gif

Hello Cadaver34,

I am running with 16 GB's (max supported by this MB).
It runs fine. (16 GB is great for huge ram disks and the like.)
I have 4x4 GB as I started out with 2x4 GB and added 2x4 GB later when it was getting cheaper.
Note however that having 4 banks of RAM brings the disadvantage that non-stock cpu coolers have even less space to work with than with only 2 banks.
I am still looking at my options for a non-stock cooler as a lot of them simply don't seem to fit in the cramped space.

regards,

Tonio

CPU cooler that actually fits the MSI 790fx-gd70 with 4x high profile RAM.

As I had a stock cooler for my 955BE rev 2 and I have 4 sticks of
high profile RAM I knew a lot of coolers would simply not fit.

After doing some measuring and reading up on after-market coolers I soon
discovered that finding a cooler that would actually fit and still perform
decent and be somewhat quiet would be a challenge.

For those facing the same quest for a cooler: I have chosen for the
Cooler Master 412Slim as it should fit and it also does in reality.

Mind you that even this small cooler barely fits: I have less than 1 millimeter
free space between the front-fan and the 4th RAM stick!

For those interested in what it brings to replace the stock cooler =>

Idle @ 0.8 GHz with low noise cooling: 18 degrees difference.
stock = 48C and CM412Slim = 30

100% cpu x4 @ 3.2 GHz with maximum cooling: 30 degrees difference.
stock = 72C* and CM412Slim = 42

I Hopes this helps others that may have similar quests.

* Actually I stopped testing at this point since it was already 4 degrees over
the proclaimed boiling point and I noticed a faint burn-smell.

I can recommend a fantastic aftermarket cooler for those with ram space problems. The zalman cnps 9900 max. Since the fan is vertical it doesnt need much horizontal space thus wont interfere with ram sticks. With an unlocked 6 core phenom at 3.8 ghz it runs max 38c at full load. Its full copper too a huge plus

Sup 790FX-rs Nice board w/lots of options sure wish I did not have to sell mine but it is what it is and life moves on. don't push the 6 cores too much unless you want to witness a splotion in your case. N2 out .02¢

Quite true.  I pushed my 1055t very hard on this board (5.3ghz on dry ice) and I was very lucky that it didnt explode.  The whole time I was doing it I could hear the board whining.
