I am happy with those temps if I can just keep them in check under load..I haven't check the temps on load, but can only assume that if they are that low on idle they are going to be good under load.....

Thanks again!

Based on what you are saying, I see these temps reaching high 40's, low 50's TOPS under load. In real life use (gaming for example) I hit between 49-50C. Those extra fans will definitely help you out. Just as an example, under load my NB reaches at most 52-53C with an ambient of about 28C while stress testing/benchmarking (give or take a degree). SB is always lower. Unless something is wrong with your mobo, you should be good. As Tweeky stated, your warning temp is around 65C.

This cooler came also with a metal backplate, so... should i remove the metal plate who came with C4E?
Go ahead and drob the AM3 bract from the front of the board. This will remove the back plate. I'm not sure you'll like the V6GT though. I would do Megahelm or D14, but while it's not great the V6GT isn't bad.

QUESTION:

After installing a GPU air cooler and fiddling around with some of the power cables my system is running perfectly fine BUT I have noticed an odd noise.

Upon hitting the power button to turn on my rig, I hear this low pitched "buzzing" sound as soon as I hit the power button. At first I thought that it was my system speaker (the one that gives you the boot beeps). It goes away at about a half second to a second BEFORE the single beep of a good post as the system is booting up.

Any ideas? I have practically stuck my head inside my case to try and pin-point where this sound is coming from but no clue. Everything works perfectly fine so far. this weird noise is only during the very first couple of seconds of the posting process. It does not happen at any other time once the system has posted.

My concern is maybe it's the PSU. Its a Corsair TX750 and so far it checks out (multimeter on the mobo test points).

Are you sure it's not your HDD looking for the OS? I have something like that occasionally myself.

Hi. Thanks for replies. That Megahalem looks great, but in my case i have a AMD 1100T sixcore processor and i'll have to purchase the AMD mounting kit which is not so cheap, will cost me about 80 € and he doesen't came with fans which i'll have to purchase them after, that Noctua D14 is 100 € and V6GT is only 60 €. I'll go for the V6GT cuz i'll save money for other components to come. Untill now i have CPU, mobo and graphic card.

Not sure since this happens prior to any posting screens actually start showing up on my monitor. But... what I can do is disconnect the hdd's and try booting then. If it's hdd related, it should be gone. If it's not hdd related, it will still be there but I have one less component to consider.

Thanks man...

My Thermaltake Frio does a great job and I didnt pay that much for it from newegg if that helps.

Just an FYI here, on a hexacore CPU the Frio will work (somewhat depending on ambient) but I have had the honor of helping another member here at OCN (olllian) who started out with a Frio on his 1090T as he was trying to reach a 4.0GHz OC. Long story short, he upgraded to a Noctua D-14 which took care of the temp issues he experienced as well as the obnoxious sound it emitted, plus he now has a lot more headroom to play with.

You should never take short cuts with cooling (or most other components) as they'll always end up costing you more in the long run. I understand completely about trying to save a few bucks, but when it's cooling you're talking about you should ask around and see how many members have gone down this very same path.

Usually what happens is you make the choice to save a little money and cheap out on cooling. Than after only a few months learn your temps are limiting your OC. Than end up replacing the cheaper choice for a better cooling solution that was first recommended by members that have already been down this path. So it ends up costing you a lot more in the long run. It's always the same, some lessons just have to be learned the hard way I guess. I wish I would have realized this when I first started OCing and taken this advice!

I wonder how many other members share this same feeling? Any takers?

Oops should of read a little more lol , it works awesome on my Quadcore but ^^^^^^ there right about the hexas I'm sure. I didnt get a Hexacore this last time because it isn't necessary yet for gaming (to me anyways) which is mostly what I do.
