    Hmm.. Id probably have to say push pull if you have the room, just because even though with a shroud you don't have the dead spot, the air doesn't actually go through the rad like with a pull fan. Im not expert though, so let's see what other's say.

    Well as we discussed earlier, a shroud eliminates dead spots, but can also mess with air pressure, the configurating would matter on fin density, some rads out there swiftech being one of them benifit far more from push pull than a shroud because of fin density.

    Which rad are your using ?

    It's the RS240, or did you get the RX240 kit?

    RS. I don't really know what the difference is, though.

    RX is a thicker rad and cools better, thats about all i know :p I've heard the RX 120 performs like a rs240.

    So, that guy is willing to sell me the 450 for 75 bucks. Need to think about this now. I know my bank account will hate me.

    If at all, I do buy it, I'll just take one. Not sure yet, though.

    Lol, my score right now: 555558
    If only I had 3 points less!

    I gave up on my x58a-ud5 after a series of crashes. It has now been retired as a folder and will be crunching a low speed instead. I can't boot at anything higher then 185x21 (and 185x12) and that made it crash 85 % in a -bigadv. It might go back in action when I cool of but for the next 10 days it is sent to the corner. Team is down 33 minus 9 K (gpu is back on) for now.

    Try dropping that multi to 20 and go from there. I can never get a stable OC on my X58A-UD3R with a 21 multi. 20X190 all the way ;)

    I know the Scythe's are great fans, but I'm kinda leaning towards these too

    Rosewill RFA-120-BL 120mm 4 Blue LEDs LED Case Fan

    A decent 75 CFM, and they have Blue LEDs which will go with the whole blue lighting in my main rig and blue liquid in my folding rig.

    What do is say, I'm a shallow person :p

    Look's good tex.

    Im having problems with my board now too. I was trying to go for a 4.2 clock and finally gave up. Went back and loaded my 4.0ghz BIOS and now their is no 21x multi? I've searched everything in the BIOS and can't find it.

    This board has a terrible BIOS.

    Sounds like you already have it worked out, go for it and see how they work. I look for something that has decent airflow without the lights. Not a fan of too many lights.

    What CPU/stepping do you have running in that rig.I have a 920 D0 running in my UD3R at 200x21.
    When it finishes it's next -bigadv I can do a reboot and check the bios settings for you, if you like.It might give you somewhere to start with your settings.

    Yeah I found that my last board ran better with even multi's, although the one I have running now doesnt seem to care as much.

    I'm not a big fan of ASrock boards. I had one and the USB slots went out on it within 6 months. I stick with Gigabyte or Biostar they have served me well and have never let me down.
