I have the H50 and I plug the pump in one of the Fan channels and the fans directly to the PSU, did I do something wrong?
You are getting the error because you do do have anything plugged into the CPU fan header. You need to plug the H50 pump to the CPU fan connector and do not enable CPU fan control in bios. The fans can be plugged to any of the Chassis Headers or leave it connected to the PSU if you want but you can't monitor fan speed.

or should i just get the newly appropriately sized retention screws and screw it down and deal with the 50degree idle temps others are having?
Read through this Thread and you will see that the best results are by people removing the stock yellow gunk and using good cpu stuff. You can get 91% alcohol at Walmart or any Pharmacy. Don't get carried away when you tighten the screws or you could put too much pressure on the NB Chip.

yeah i know it will provide better performance as i have read through many pages of this thread. My question really was, should I bother? i have never had to remove the gunk before and i dont have the utensils for it.
post #787 of 13131
you have to just scrape it off

since its not used you can reuse it by just sticking it on
if you dont want to bother with the hassle dont bother lol

Hello, I am new to the forum but I have been reading this thread for about a week and I have decided to purchase a Crosshair IV Formula. I received my board and I checked if the heatsink is making contact with the northbridge and it turns out mine is mounted properly and making contact. I purchased this board from Newegg a few days ago FWIW. I am going to remove the yellow thermal paste and replace it with some OCZ freeze before I install the board. I am curious to know what memory everyone is using with this board paired with the Phenom II X6 1090T. I spent some time researching what memory to get and decided on Mushkin 996746 DDR3 1600 PC12800 7-7-7-18 1.65v. This memory wasn't on the QVL but I think I should be ok. The specs on the memory are close to the Muskin 996657 which is on the QVL. I can't wait to get this thing running, I'm still waiting on parts.....
