So mini update: I feel like an idiot, i've been running no exhaust fan for almost a month now after switching my AIO from the top (with two fans solely as exhaust and two fans in the front as an intake) to push/pull in the front. After looking over the motherboard layout through pictures I somehow missed one small detail, a 6th PWM header, so I put an exhaust fan on the rear of my case and low and behold I went from maxing out at 83C to 69C, which I knew it would do. I just can't believe I missed that fan header after all these months. Granted the exhaust fan is running off the Nforce fan header (not the one I missed but I switched some fans around cable wise because that cable wasn't long enough). Anyway temps are a lot better and stability issues have ceased so far.

Anyone have any experience using this: http://www.enzotechnology.com/evga_790i.htm

I was going to get one but i’d rather see if anyone has any input regarding it, since the original nforce fan is nearly impossible to find anywhere. Reason I ask is because when running the northbridge at 1600MHz or higher it gets really hot, like burn your fingers hot.

I tried the enzo previously, I didn't see any stellar drop in temps. I modified the original motherboard heat sink by cutting off the south bridge portion/ kept the mosfet one on the board.
In the end I just use a 60mm fan instead of the original nforce one... seems to work better than stock.

I just went digging, I found a replacement 790i fan and the enzo south bridge. PM me and I'll ship you down the pair if you want to try them.

Yes it sure does get hot especially when running at 1.5v... (ASUS Striker II Extreme = major advantage with chipset water blocks). IMO that sync and fan is only going to be good for STOCK cooling. I found that using an 80mm quality ball bearing fan with decent CFM (but not too loud) worked great with the stock sync. Dropped the temps significantly. 60mm might work also but anything smaller isn't really up to the task IMO when overclocking.


I think I mounted it right on top of my video card and used tie wraps to hold it just at the right angle. Overclocking wasn't ever meant to be pretty

Yes if it is a good quality fan it should work pretty well I just wouldn't use anything less than 60mm. I use both Noctuas and Noiseblockers personally. Definitely get the PR-2 (not the PR-1). The Noctuas can go to 3,000 rpm but likely louder.

Yeah I have two of their static pressure fans on the front of my radiator, does good but had planned on getting two more for the pull part of it and an airflow optimized one as the exhaust. Noise really doesn’t bother me too much but Noctua’s build quality is top notch and has done well with me in this build so far.

Update on the rig,

After a bit more tweaking on the ram I haven't had any crashes. Running both the cpu/ram FSB @ 410, the X5470 is happy at 1.394v and the ram at 2.125v.

I tried Windows 10. Version 1803 would install, 1809 wouldn't install or update however I couldn't figure out the cause. It ran OK, but I did notice some odd behavior such as when hardware had to be detected programs would take a long time to do so (system info, Firestrike, ect). For now I went back to Windows 7.

Gaming seems to be very much hit or miss at 1080p. GPU bound games seem to run no problem (ex Doom). Nier Automata seems to show long load times and dropped textures. So far I've only been trying the games that land in my Steam/Gog library- not really going out of my way. I do have a 1440p monitor on my main rig I may try later, perhaps the stress moving to the GPU may help some of the more problematic games.

Current config:
Case: Corsair Air 540. As far as cube cases, 2nd only to the now deduct Caselabs Mercuy imo.
PSU: EVGA Supernova 750 G2 + sleeved cables. "Hand me down" from the main rig.
Fans: 1x140mm, 5x 120mm Corsair SP green fans (non PWM). Now that RGB is all the rage I was able to pick these up near next to nothing. That said a bit loud full blast for my taste.
CPU: X5470 @ 4.1ghz 24/7. Limiting ram/unsync helps but the goal for this rig is maximum 24/7 performance all around.
Motherboard: EVGA 790i FTW. Pretty much stock except the 40mm painted noctua fan as a chipset cooler.
Cooler: H100i V2. I had this laying around. I think I would of preferred the Swiftech H240, but at a mild 4.1ghz OC any decent cooler would work.
GPU: Zotac GTX 1080 AMP. SLI did work but gaming either didn't benefit or would shutter terribly. I thought about moving to a GTX 1080TI as this may be the "best" card for this board ever, but I got the pair of 1080's cheap/ upgrading to the TI would be ~$200-$300 + may not see any actual improvements. May in 5-6 years...
SSD1/2: 1x SYBA SI-PEX40129 with 1x 256gb 950pro (os drive) with 1x 512gb 970pro (programs). I tried the Highpoint SSD1701A, but couldn't get the board to post. The 950 pro boots in ACHI, then works at NVME speeds when the driver loads in windows. I couldn't install direct, but I could migrate an image using Samsung's migration tool (install initially to the sata raid).
SSD3/4: 2x 240gb Sandisk SSD 3D raid 0. Not as good performance as on something like the P45 chipset, but plenty for games.
USB 3: Currently using a no-name PCIEx4 card from ebay. Performance isn't bad. Not a needed addition, but nice to have the options. I need a faster USB drive to know how bad the 1.1x PCIE slot is truly limiting the USB3 card.
Sound: Xonar DG PCI. I did have my older Soundlbaster Z card in the 1x slot, but sound would drop in/out. The PCI card seems to have no issues (I did supect this was the reason Win10 1809 wouldn't go, but in the end this wasn't the issue.)
Acrylic work: Kustom Akrylics lightbox, Jmmods GPU supports, Coldzero GPU backplate. To date I'm pleased with all 3, however Coldzero's lightbox seems to be of a better design (I have another 540 project I'm working on).

I'm thinking of the Corsair RGB cooler/ Thermaltake Pacific ram RGB for the ram. Won't add performance but I do get a kick of how all the green leds come together.
