    I think that was the norm for Gigabyte X58 boards. Mine would easily get that toasty without decent airflow.

    The mobo is on a piece of wood at the moment so it should be ok when I put it in my 750d then the h100 and some sp120s will be blowing over it :)


    What temps program are you using for the xeon

    Sorry for the late reply - I decided to spend the extra £5 and get mine from a seller with 100% feedback. CPU works a treat, been running it 4.3GHz daily now for weeks on end. Will probably take it back down to 4.2GHz when I reinstall Windows.

    Much to the disappointment to everyone that had subscribed to my price check thread yes I did!

    Have it all running at the moment and appears to be working fine.

    Rig atm is:
    X5650
    Gene
    Prodigy M
    H100i
    7870TE
    12GB Ram (3x 4GB)
    2 x SSD
    Antec Semi modular PSU


    Hoping to move over to:
    X5650
    Gene
    Prodigy M
    H100i
    GTX 750Ti (Considering a 970 or holding out till the 960 is out)
    24 GB Ram (6x 4GB)
    2 x SSD
    Silverstone fully modular SFX psu.

    Having the extra horse power when I am in and out of VMplayer is great! My gaming needs arnt huge atm (Wow and Eve) hence the down shift to the 750.

    Bugger sorry didn't twig that that would clash!

    Plenty of space for an extender though.

    I was until I started editing videos... now my RAM usage jumps to over 5GB when I start very simple editing in After Effects. I'm going to need to consider going to 12GB or 24GB which in turn will affect what OC I can run, but for tasks like video editing, quantity is definitely more important than speed.

    I think 12GB in triple channel is plenty for gaming, and even most video/photo work (unless your a pro). Will having all six slots populated have an effect on a decent overclock?

    I've had all 6 RAM slots populated on 3 different X58 boards with an i7 970 and 990X. I had to increase the VTT/QPI voltage a tiny amount with the 970 and 6 slots populated compared to just 3 slots but the 990X runs 24GB (6 x 4GB) at 2000MHz with a QPI voltage of just over 1.23v with an overclock of 4.7GHz.
