Nothing wrong with F3 but have seen some problems with F4, so I'm not game to try them .

Can any of you guys who currently own or have owned a H50 attest to it being worth the extra cash? Also have read about the whole sucking warm air into the case fiasco with the H50 .. Given that I have a 140mm exhaust directly above where this would be mounted in my case I think this would have no real effect on the over all efficiency of the system (airflow and cooling). I really want to go with the H50 but am wondering whether DOUBLE the price is justified by the performance?
I'm still leery of all-in-one liquid coolers as they will be more prone to problems by design. Yes, pump technology has improved over the years, but these things do have a lifespan, albeit a specified long one. I'd still go with a good heatpipe cooler, as I have yet to see a heatpipe fail over the years. The fans on them can also be upgraded just the same as the H50. But, if the H50 is twice the price, I will jump out and say it isn't worth it. Maybe you could build your own water cooling setup (small pump, single fan radiator, no reservoir for closed loop) for about the same price. Is the H50 (as stock) twice as good as a Zalman or Noctua. No. But I'm not going to deny that it will outperform most things. Also...the H70 is out, but it's far more expensive, and doesn't cool much better from the reviews I've read. More food for thought.

thanks for the replies. What bios settings should I have though? Like those unlock and stuff? Thanks.
post #1454 of 4325
Hi guys.


I've just bought this motherboard (GA-890FXA-UD5 F4 v2.0) with the 1055T

My ram is running at 2000 MHz, CPU at 3000 MHz and NB at 2500 MHz


the thing is that in the bios won't take the voltage I enter for the cpu-cpuNB

it does for the RAM


but I can change the voltage of the cpu under AMD overdrive and this is how I have it stable since my ram is running at 2000 and the CPU-NB at 2500


Anyway, I was reading the post and didn't find anything about this, Am I the only one with this problem?


and now that I'm already here, is there any post/guide about every setting in the bios? there's the manual I know but it does not explain what the options exactly do change

I haven't got the F4 bios but maybe try saving the settings to a profile in BIOS and see if it sticks?

Once again some fantastic info unexploded, thank you.
After much (far too much) research I have come to the same conclusion, H50 does have cooling advantages over most air coolers however for the difference in price and the copious amount of reviews/discussions I have read about it I have decided against impulsively splurging on one. In actual fact I made a small purchase today after much deliberation and measuring and I now have this 212+ strapped on top of my 955.

After reading several reviews of this cooler in comparison to coolers much more expensive it is a pretty good performer. I laid out $49 Aus and already the difference compared to the stock cooler is evident. My idle temps are around 22-24c. I am yet to try any OC with it as I am still waiting for my 5770 and dont see the point in trying to push an already crippled system.

Whether I stay with this cooler for long I don't know but if I can get some reasonable temps out of it with mild clocks it might stay strapped in for a bit.
Thanks again for the info guys.

Please tell me how to do this. I didn't know this board could save BIOS "profiles". That's awesome!

I have F4 on my board and love it. Allowed me to drop my CPU vcore by 0.025 and remain stable.

F11 F12 on bios main menu.

I think I might try F4. I have 95w 1055t and am using 1.5vcore. People are telling me I should be able to do lower.

edit: updated to F4 with no problems.. now lets see if I can lower voltages any.
