My side fan just broke, I should be getting a new one by tomorrow or by Wednesday. It's a 120mm CoolerMaster fan. I also might get a Scythe 120mm PWM fan that has 110CFM at it's max RPM to replace the 120mm Corsair fan that came with the H50.

OK so I just made my H50 fan an exhaust fan and the Temps are getting to 57C .... But it's still dropping. Should i put it back to a intake fan for the lower temps on my CPU or would it be better to just leave it as an exhaust?

I would suggest also ordering another fan for the H50 to use in push/ pull. There has to be something off with the airflow in your case.

How are you doing for exhaust fans?

I'm gonna get another 120mm fan made by Scythe that has 110CFM. For my exhaust I have a 200mm fan (bigger than my hand).

I dropped the Multiplier to 19.5; getting a OC of 3.9GHz now. So far I've been running it for 10 minutes and it hasn't dropped. The highest temp I get is 47C which is about 2~3C cooler. I guess it was the MOSFET's maybe? I'l probably be getting those Copper Heatsinks for a better OC - Plus I have my replacement sidefan coming in.

I actually touched those MOSFET's while running Prime95... i think i burnt my finger a little. XD

Ninja edit, cuz I just saw some guy say overheating MOSFETS wouldnt throttle a CPU.
