Since I've got a pair of 1TB SSDs coming in, I'm planning on installing then by the end of month so I can check the paste on the cooler as I do have some MX-4. I'm also going to see how dusty things are (desert area with lots of dust) and do a thorough cleaning while checking the paste. Might even be too much paste on the cooler instead of too little. Fan Profile could be off as I never heard it spin up - should have when it hit 80c. Damn now I need additional monitoring software to see what the fans and voltages are doing.
On the U12 cooler, not an option since it's too tall. U9 is the tallest I can install and even that's going to be close on size.
On the RAM issue, caught a post where someone indicated that was one of the reasons they're system couldn't pass 3900 and I'm using the cheapest 2400 I could get at the time. Right now I'm not going to worry to much since the 3800 is a nice boost but once I dive into things after Halloween, I'm going in full throttle. Does mean I also need to find testing apps for my Ram to ensure it's stable as that could be why things hard locked instead of throttling down.
