Stick a washer under the clamping bracket - it increases the clamping force.

Indeed.
Need to be very careful about increasing the pressure on CPU. thumb.gif

That's why we say he isn't one to be heard rolleyes.gif
His "comparison" makes zero sense

@TS
That fan is what i called "garbage"

My fans are still considered good fans right?

S-Flex are still absolutely solid fans, no need to change them unless you want a higher speed version

Doesn't seem like the make them anymore, well according to Newegg.

My set up is I have one fan right above the CPU cooler pulling air out of the case, one at the back blowing it out mounted to the case and one on the front of the pushing air though the cooler.

That's why I didn't think another fan directly on the other side of the cooler would help too much.

Now I just wish I knew where these damn thumb screws disappeared to! I just had them.

So my fans were the 67CFM sycthe 1600 RPM fans.

I was debating on putting on 2x 100 CFM but I don' t have the brackets to mount another fan!

Also I bought an H110 thinking I could make the 5GHZ goal safe I have to do 1.51 volts with LLC at extreme which means it runs at 1.54-1.56 volts to get it stable. Problem was I could do this on air with the Ultra 120... I was close to 90C or just over which is tooooo hot.

On the H110 I though it was going to be better but it's actually quite the same it's about 10 C cooler over most other temps that I had but I think CPU just pumps out too much heat!
