The BIOS of my M4A785D-M PRO won't let me set the multiplier higher then standard (12.5), tho its unlocked (by pressing "4" when booting) and I can fiddle with the FSB and voltage.
Can anyone recommend me any software to try it another way?

Edit: "Solved" the problem for a dual cooler on the corsair H50 by cutting off the first screw holes on the H50 supplied fan so I could use regular screws supplied with each mainboard. Still have to straighten the edges a bit but it took 4c idle and ~5-6c full load of the CPU temp so I'm happy

Yes. I have played around with this fan first hand, it does feel a little weak. But it does do the job alright. It pushes a fair amount of air. Just try to not tighten the screws hard or over time the pressure will make the chassis crack.

Cheers.

Seems like a 120mm fan works better for blowing onto the graphics card

Well yeah a 120mm will work better when it's blowing on one concentrated area. The 200mm is more for like overall case airflow.

I may have screwed up my scythe slipstreams by mounting them horizontal for some period.

I actually tried that for some reason it seems that when I turned up the fans the temperature went up.

I think it might have to do with my graphics card as its non-reference. It probably didn't have enough positive air pressure for the fans to operate properly.

It could of been that the force of airflow coming from the front fan was impacting the speed of the fan on the video card? wild guess haha.

Yeah something like that, not much I can do to cool it without getting a thrid party heatsink/cooler and voiding the warranty.
