    Those fans are pretty good. I use 3x140mm Thermaltake Ring intake and 1x120mm exhaust. While they have the same static pressure as your Noctuas, the airflow is only half as yours. I do have 3 of them...

    Why not go down 100MHz to...

    [As far as I'm aware of, this MB does not have any speaker on it so there is no beeping sounds coming from it. I've never heard any beeps on any BIOS versions I've had, including 3101.

    Ok, I'll take that back. To me sounded a bit too high of a hit so I've done the multithread bench again today and the performance hit is under 10%. Not sure what happened the other day to get such a...

    Even though 70C on the CPU under full load is not too bad, you should be able to get it lower. At 4.5GHz I think you should be able to lower the CPU voltage to...

    Memory instability is not an issue on my system.
    My last working BIOS was 1302 so I was wondering if there is a newer one that actually works. I got the impression that 2202 might be a stable BIOS?
