robertr1 @KedarWolf I'm switching to an XI Apex also from my GB Pro and it's arriving today. Was wondering how you're getting along?

Any tips or things to look out for so far?

Check out Swifttech's Tim-Mate TIM2. Great stuff.

tomimoi42 Thanks a lot fellas! Yeah, I read some reviews and there were some better ones, but I got good deal on the MX4 on ebay so I took that and have previous experience with it so...

l Nuke l any guides on how to solder leads to the probeit pads on the motherboard? Would like to read voltage without having to hold my leads.

Waiting for the Arctic MX4 to arrive, so I can put on my Noctua NH-D14 on it.

I haven't really got clear information about the VRM on this motherboard, is it the same as the model E? Are they good for this CPU? How much OC would you expect (with that cooler, Nexus 1000W PSU, and plenty of other fans in a Fractal case) or none at all?

Anyway, any pointers or input will be very much appreciated.


BTW running now i7 2600k @ 4,4GHz (Was 4,9 for years before needing too much voltage) so any pR0HaX OC techniques I can process (most likely =)).

the cooler will prob hold you back before the vrm does.
