    The fan as came apart but only hanging on due to the magnetic element in it. I took it apart and it will fall right out but when the cooler is put together it grinds on the metal.

    Ghetto fan FTL. Hopefully the rest of the card works fine and a new cooler fixes it. :)

    Is anyone here possibly interested in buying a nice AM2+ combo? I have a Phenom X4 9750, like new Foxconn A7DA-S 790GX board I bought from Geeks a while back, and maybe I'll throw in 2 1GB sticks of Corsair ValueSelect DDR2-533 if that sways anyone. I'm just on the fence about getting rid of it as it's a really nice backup board, but I'd really like to get some newer parts in my farm and this board is just too nice and feature packed for me when people are looking for good AM2 boards as they become more rare. PM me if you're interested.

    I struck a deal with Popswala for the AM2+ combo and stuff. I'm sure he'll love the nice addition to his PPD. :toast:

    My new 990FX Extreme4 "megafolder" went offline tonight unexpectedly, again. I think it probably had BSOD, which shuts down the drives, and then the board gets stuck on A3 - IDE enable. Over the weekend, I changed the RAM from DDR3-800 (default wtf) to DDR3-1333 and raised the CPU-NB from 1.1 to 1.25v and that got me about 3 days without a BSOD versus 1.

    What's the default voltage on Deneb IMCs? On my Crosshair III Formula it was confusing so I always set it to the Vcore, but this board defaulted to 1.1v? Been getting SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION with BCCode 3a and 3b I think. Only running 2*4GB Ripjaws, and the system seems to run fine when I'm using it. Another time it did BSOD when I swapped my 550Ti out and installed the 465. :(

    Pretty sure stock is 1.15-1.2v, you could go up to 1.3v, 1.4v water, past that they get too hot causing unstable and for the chip to actually function slower.

    Anyone have any low profile VRM sinks from an aftermarket VGA cooler that they can spare?

    Hmm, alright. I wonder what the heck is wrong with my system then (maybe the CPU is dying as I had weird issues on my AM2NF3 with this chip and random flickery memory instability kind of stuff).

    Maybe it's time to gather up some money and get an FX-8120 or something. Had no idea they were that inexpensive.

    Totally not needed. That is with a stock copper core cooler+MX2. More than enough cause there ain't no way you will get this board to go close to 200bclk, warranting the need for extra chip cooling.

    Even bad boards come close to 200 (around 180-190)

    But this is h55 not p55. Even at that your good on cpu temps on these chips. Voltage kills em, not temps.

    Found my machine frozen today, so I gave it a little more vcore and we'll see what it does. No BSOD, thankfully.

    @Jstn

    Try loosening your subtimings a touch. It might help.

    Hmmm, I think I still have the original box and cooler for that chip somewhere.

    If a fellow cruncher picks it up from Mad Shot, I will send the box and cooler out to them if they wants it- my treat!. :D
