    Yeah definately. It's leening towards the "Thermalright HR-01 Plus" paired up with the "Noctua NF-S12-1200" fan. First I was thinking of the "Xigmatek S1283" cuz of the favorable price but that one has the intel push-pin-mechanism and it weights 600g, seems ALOT of weight to support by plastic pushpins.

    You could likely use the thermalright bolt thru kit I linked to you before with that Xigmatek if you liked it better, but then again that is a Maybe

    Do you have any good tips or input on how to accurately calibrate Realtemp when using a far better cooler than Spire Verticool and Intels stock cooler?
    Realtemp calibration-site assumes IDLE temp with a well aired cooler should be ~5 degrees above ambient but what If I install a cooler that supposedly cool the cpu better than 4-5 degrees above ambient?
    I have found some reviews here and there where their tests have shown that an IDLE temp of only one or two degrees above ambient is possible.

    Yes, 2-3 above ambient would be possible but not likely as a norm. But the difference between 2-3 and 5 +/- isnt much anyway, so all in all not a big deal!

    Yeah, I hear ya! I do the same, I just guesstimated mine between 3-6 above ambient to put myself in the middle ground area

    So how's the board itself running for you now?

    Its running fine. No problems what so ever. I settled (for the time being) for 375x9 (~3.4GHz) @1.275Volt and mems at 900MHz 5-5-5-15 timings, subtimings on AUTO so far.

    Ran Orthos Blend for ~8-9hours and at the same time "overloaded" the CPU by running various applications on and off to see if I could make it hang But NO lockups at all :) Even though I did not run Orthos Blend +12hrs I consider it stable. Have been playing Crysis, HalfLife2 - Episode 2 and The Witcher for several days now and all is fine, no crashes or weird behaviour. Temps are ~31 idle and ~45 when playing Crysis etc.

    I will be going for 3.6GHz or higher when I get my new Cpu cooler in about 14 days. At the moment I dont wanna push the Vcore up too much cuz of my fairly crappy cooler, thats why I am staying at 3.4GHz for now.

    Sounds great!

    Ya, if it is stable for you in games then it is stable. Stability is what the user defines, and since you game and have no issues sounds stable to me!
