The case only has one place to mount exhaust fans unfortunately, that's why I have the psu fan drawing air from the case

I think the issues are with the THICC II ULTRA. The GPU doesn't really go above 75, and the VRM temps hover around 92ish. I pop the front panel off when I'm gaming though because this case is absolute crap for airflow. Had the same issue when I was using an HD 7870 Ghz Edition.

Thank you sir! A SATA SSD is definitely next on my list. Just waiting for the right price.

How is the cpu cooling? I see you replaced PWM fan that came with the thermaltake cooler with the aigo fan , which i see are 3 pin.

Could you possibly include the search bar in the top right of the part selection page as one of the parameters in your parametric algorithm? I notice I'm still able to use logical operators in the search bar, so having that along with the parametrics you guys implemented would be an incredibly powerful addition to the already incredibly powerful tool you guys have given to us!!!

Please upvote this!!!

Thanks man. I just put it in and it worked straight out of the box even though it was an older BIOS. It worked fine, played games okay etc.. I did update the BIOS though before I did any overclocking though.

Started overclocking. currently at 4.3 Stable, but using Prime 95 after 3 minutes temps hit 80 and i'm very uncomfortable with that. However this is only used for gaming.....and I've tested most of the games I play and the temps never go above 65C.......The bottlenecking in Far Cry 3 disappeared, runs beautifully now...Tempted to leave it...I have a temperature alarm set to go off if it hits 80 what do you guys think?

Yeah bro. As for the XFX 7870....check out my post here on Toms Hardware: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1809265/graphics-card-hot-easily.html

Mine would overheat like that too, it came from the factory with WAY TOO MUCH thermal paste on. When i took off the cooler off my card the thermal paste was CAKED onto the GPU die, so it was insulating the heat and not transferring it. Maybe that's what's causing you problems

all jokes aside though, cpu idles at around 43, mobo around 37. It should be fine, not like my aunt's gonna be rendering anything/playing any games. i figure passive cooling should be enough.

I think I have the older one than you, the 870 Extreme3. The manual says for dual channel you should use the same color slots...and they're beside each other. Check out page 15 here: http://66.226.78.22/downloadsite/manual/870%20Extreme3.pdf Thanks for looking out for a fellow builder tho!
