5Ghz is for pure e-peen anyway (even 4.9Ghz is for that matter - most 2500k'rs run theirs at 4.5-4.6Ghz) and theres nothing my rig cant power through like a herd of severely pissed off elephants stampeding in a rice field.
Im happy to keep it chugging along at 4.9 as the voltage and the temps are good.
As a suggestion.... I recommend swapping the fans on your 620 for some 1850rpm GT's I guarantee you will see a nice drop in temps
You telling me my dual 38MM P/P 3000RPM Scythe Ultra Kaze 120s with 133CFM each is worse then dual 1850RPM Scyth GTs??
I know the GTs have great static pressure but these thing do as well.
