Few less bells and whistles but has everything I need. Miss the Crosshair but havent had 1 oz. of trouble with the Sabertooth.
Sorry to hear that, but good luck with the Sabertooth. It's an awesome board as well. Infact a lot of Crosshair owners also own a Sabertooth lol. Btw your sig says "Asus Sabertootk 990FX' LOL

I might switch myself if this second C5F doesnt work with my current hardware. I also bought a second HDD just to check if my current Samsung f3 is just being gay. .

I am thinking about getting a WD Black for my OS *(500GB)* Then using RAID 0 on my two F3s 1TB

But this all depends on if the C5F even works, if not its time to go Sabertooth, and pray that works. I do not wish to go back to Gigabytes UDs

100% For Sure! Check out the Noctua NH-D14 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835608018

Please feel free to read all the reviews (I focus on the Negative Reviews). Many will tell you two things:

1) The Noctua is by far the easiest HSF to install (I have installed many and the NH-D14 is just Too Easy! )

2) This HSF also kicks the butt of many liquid coolers.

Footnote: If by "stock cooler" you mean the POS sent to you by AMD, the answer is an emphatic HELL NO! Please don't even try.

Disclaimer on the Noctua: You had better have a really big case. (I buy only the Cooler Master HAF932's - gotta bunch) The Noctua is well beyond HUGE!

(If you find something someone convinces you is better than the NH-D14, chances are I have it lying in the backroom. Trust me on this one. Any recommendation I give on a component is the result of having been on some awful bad Blind Dates before I eventually found the right girl.)

Actually, and I'm sitting here looking at 2 as I type, I don't think a pic will help you too much. Why? It's more of a clearance issue:

1) to the side of the case

2) for the RAM under the Noctua (I had to ditch what I like to call cutesy, cliche RAM like the GSkills for the simple reason they are just not practical, i.e. will not fit under Noctua or much any other respectable HSF. Such RAM for me comes under the "what were they thinking" design problem.

All I can say is that with the Cooler Master HAF932 (basically a 2-car garage or wind tunnel), the side humongous fan just barely fits. But what you get is lots and lots and lots of windage - and cooling.

Why am I in such love with this Noctua HSF and the HAF932? It's super cool and well beyond quiet (I listen to piano, sax jazz on a hefty critter computer/audio/speaker system while I work, so I do not want fan noise!)

I know that doesn't help you too much. If you are looking at the Noctua, I would look at case size, especially width and compare it with the Cooler Master HAF 932.

On those two recommendations, I must stand fast. I have purchased a whole boatload of crappola that has now filled up the back room. These two products I shall stick with. Sure hope that helps.

Oh, mounting the Noctua on the C4F or C5F, is brain-dead easy - takes about 5 minutes with clumsy arthritic fingers!
