    Not arguing talking also smart guardian malfunctions on my board makes my northbridge fan run loud and doesn't control it right the bios however works very well. I'm not impressed with smart guardian at all.

    that just doesnt sound right either but u may have grabbed a diffrent version i guess, but both my DFI run SG flawlessly! Also SG is what DFI uses as the "grail of diagnostics". so it should function...also the fan setting may be cranked up in the settings! oh and i run SG with fans full on and bios set to 25*

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    Ok, after playing with the voltages for awhile, and putting an "Antec Spot Cool" over the PWMIC, I was able to get stable with some good temps. PWMIC temp dropped almost 15c with this fan.I do think SneekyPeete does have a point about the PWMIC temps. There was a clear line for me of stability vs instability when PWMIC went above 55c. Right now, at full load, CPU-48c (w/stock cooler and AS5) Chipset-41c PWMIC-44c. I might try to get a little more out of this Opty, but I'm not sure I want to raise the voltage anymore. I'm happy with the results so fair.

    Hey paul this might help aswell http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835119011 these are kinda cool for not just ram but any dead spots in your case. I also have a Antec spot cooler but because my Cpu cooler is so Darn large I cannot get it to my PWMIC area . However I notice my DDR 500 is heating that area up so this will handle that. I'm not having any in stablilty trouble, but I bet this fan helps my ram go over DDR 560. Which its stuck at right now.
