    The Arctic Freezer7Pro is amazing. I got past 4GHz with ease on an E7200 with that.

    And i think my NB temps are because i don't have a heatsink... But i do have really good airflow...

    Edit: Can anyone recommend a NB Heatsink for a Maximus II Formula. Doesn't matter about colour, i can always spray is so it's UV reactant.

    Ah right, makes sense now, didn't realise there was extra stuff that I'd need to buy with the Xigmatek.

    I've heard a lot of good about these:
    Noctua NC-U6 (A large bastard)
    EnzoTech CNB-R1 (A bit smaller)

    how much is that Noctua, and where can i get it?

    I'm considering Water Cooling my NB, Mosfets and CPU on the same loop, but it'll be in the future when i can build a Rad, Res and Pump box to go next to my desk.

    Well, the NB is 50c on boot. I left my computer on last night to fold and when i got up this morning, it was at 65c. I suppose it's not a massive problem, but if it only costs £5 to fix, i may aswell.

    Also guys, how much do you think a 4870 with EK WaterBlock and stock heatsink would fetch on here. If i get £125 or more, i might do it, then buy a 4890 :D

    I've been able to boot all the way upto 558 previously then from 559-600 it got to the splash screen then rebooted.
    I just haven't got a clue whats gone wrong, it couldn't have degredated in performance already could it?

    It's not that loud, i had it on full for gaming and didn't notice it. Then had it on 65% when sleeping and it was nearly silent.

    Can you add my new FSB, Alex?
