    my SG09B has a AP181 as main intake fan i second that :D also have 2 AP121 but only 1 in intake for gpu the 2nd one is for exhaust, and i know a AP in exhaust is pointless but i dislike unmatched pair :roll:

    i just wish they did 80/90mm version (afaik they didn't or none that i know of) so i could get rid of the 2 80mm 2k rpm Be Quiet Shadow wings i have, not that they are bad or whatever but i like "all of the same brand" ofc i could find some SST 80/90mm but i had those BQ under the hand at the moment i did my build.

    now you make me want to get 2 of those ...

    I'm the same, can't stand having a case filled with unmatched fans!

    Max operating temp for the A10-7850k is 73c. I forgot to mention it earlier, sorry.

    My AsRock mini-itx + 5500 + stock hsf would idle at something insane in the BIOS (65C?). It seems to be a common complaint about AsRock and apu boards. Also the WattMeter showed like 100W at the wall. When in Windows it actually idles down to 25W or so. When I pried the stock hsf off, the grey goo pad had half dried. Installed a better hsf and paste, which knocked down the temp while burning in the BIOS. I think you are alright at 49-50C in the bios.

    Just an update, after installng all windows updates and latest version of Asrock A-tuning it now shows my 7850k idles at 23 degrees and the same for my motherboard. Those numbers sound much more agreeable.

    I think I'm happy with the build now, no BSODs and good temps, amazing what up to date drivers/OS/MB Bios will do

    EDIT: Max temp seen in gaming so far is 37 degrees, but that's on hitman absolution, I will test it with BF4 tomorrow

    well my 1st thing when i got the board and the cpu was to pass the bios on Rev.2.0 since out of the box the FM2A88M Ex4+ doesn't handle the 7850K (even if i will use it with the X4 760K for a while) idling i am also around 23-26°

    The bios version I am using is Rev 2.1 now.

    I read somewhere that the original bios shouldnt have an issue using the 7850k up untill the point where it is possible to install the new bios put I had such hassle with it.
