    I have the two front fans on mine functioning as intake fans. The side vent is open and the rest are exhaust fans.

    I know this is a little off-topic but i'd rather ask here than start a new thread. Is the Phenom II 955 worth the extra money over the 940?

    Well I just came back from watching an hour of TV to find it had crashed at some point so I'm going to go fix my fans now.

    Why would you change them in the first place?

    Note it is in Celsius.

    HWMonitor could do with being a bit more informative though

    Is there even a way to minimise it to the tray like speedfan? I never found one, but then again I didn't really look that hard

    try the sunbeamtech core-contact freezer.
    I 2nd this. Works wonders on my E8500 @ 4GHz, keeps 1.35 volts cool....god damn old stepping.

    Edited:

    Core temp is one of the best temperature monitoring programs. HWMonitor is good too, mainly use it for GPU and voltages.

    i used it on my old 9950 build, it almost snapped the mobo. at first i though it was low quality, since it looked cheap. but then i tried it i went from 54 c idle, to 20c (in the winter).

    I've heard that installation aon AM2 mobos is really a bitch.

    I mean for the CCF.
    bit-tech.net revew posted:
    We attempted to mount the Core-Contact on AM2 socket motherboards but the mounting problems went from annoying to disastrous.

    The cooler’s mount clips are identical for both socket LGA 775 and AM2, but on AM2 there was just no way the clip was going to reach the motherboard’s mounting bracket without unacceptable levels of force being applied. We tried every conceivable way we could think of to mount the cooler onto the AM2 bracket safely, but there just doesn’t seem to any way to do so without potentially damaging the heatsink, or the motherboard itself.

    Alright I read around and I don't want the CFF, too many problems to deal with.

    Any other recommendations? I want a GOOD cooler!

    Hey I am looking at this Corsair H50 and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could buy it? I can't find it on Tigerdirect or Newegg as of yet.

    Hey dude, I have the same processor over-clocked to 3.6 with a cool-it liquid cooling system. No crashes and temps are always low. The one I have cost around $100 on another site because it wasn't available, but it's $80 now on their site: http://shopping.coolitsystems.com/s.nl/it.A/id.1786/.f. I know I could probably go much higher, but I like the stability so far. Hope this helps ;).

    I don't mean to be a buzzkill but I have mine at 3.6 on the stock cooler.

    Maybe I have a newer revision?

    Probably a newer stepping.
    What are your temps like?
