You'll get better performance out of your card by ocing the processor, of course with a good HS.
GoodEnough.

Congrats on your first build!

So I have an update and here it is:





Got it from memoryexpress in calgary for $24.20 after pricematching it from bestdirect.ca

Me: I have a pricematch for this cooler
Sales rep: Sure let me just get the manager for this
Manager: *Sigh* $24.20?!?! where do they get these prices
Me: No comment.... and trying really hard not to laugh

(Memory express had it priced at 35$)

BTW my motherboard is currently in canada customs, does anyone know how long it takes them to "review my package"

I was kinda hoping it would just quickly processed through today

----------------------------------------------------------

Your item is being processed by customs in CANADA. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.

Update
Oh yeeeeeeeeeeeeah










Its running good... except I'm going to have to re-seat the Northbridge with some AS5 because its running at 65 degrees @ idle...

But I really wanna overclock it yet I have ZERO experience.

First thing is my ram is only running at 1333mhz (should be 1600?).

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Edit:

Holy crap just ran some prime 95 testing and had to quit and shut down my computer because the NB Chipset wen't up to 73 Degrees!

Sounds like you need to RMA that motherboard. Lol, I had to get my first motherboard replaced, but it was a $50 PC chips one.

Haha, no if you look on the official msi 790fx gd70 members thread... the NB temperatures is all everyone talks about. Apparently the TIM on the NB chipset is just awful. So I'm going to re-seat it myself with some AS5 and its supposed to drop it by a good 15 degrees. Also I guess it runs cooler in the next bios update aswell.. im still at 1.7

Hell of a lot easier than dealing with an RMA thats for sure.

Can anyone confirm that my ram is running at 1600mhz 9-9-9-24 from this pic:


I'm confused because under SPD it still says max bandwidth (667MHz)
