). You can get an 8+2 phase VRM that will make your overclocks better for about $100. Orient all your case fans as intakes NOT exhausts to blow cool ambient air onto your components (that NZXT M59 - 001BK Black Steel's a decent case by the way. Check out Rosewill's Challenger as a better alternative.). Even with a stock heatsink the 1055T is one of the best overclockers AMD has ever produced and is practically guaranteed to hit 3.8 GHz with default settings and voltage. With cheap and minimal preparations you can get 4 GHz on practically every one of them. Adequate case air flow, a better heatsink and motherboard will get you where you want to go and you already have a nice case.
Alright ive decided to go with that motherboard... good reviews on newegg
is it 6.0gb/s though is my question? and also could you link me to a vrm cooler for it or is the Enzotech MOS-C1s the best or the Enzotech MOS-C10s or should i get different ones? and also wait will 3 120mms and a 140mm case fans be good?
Oh yeah is the onboard sound good? or should I buy another sound card?
And Im looking at the RAIDMAX Quantum ATX-798WB Case because it has 5 included fans do you know if it is good?Edited by olclwarrior - 12/30/10 at 6:10pm
