    It blows on the motherboard and on the 2000mhz memory.

    As you can see in the case there are 3 fans next to each other.
    2 of the case itself and 1 on the cpu.

    Still wondering why i only get 1450 RPM and not higher with prime
    Gonna test the bios settings for this cooler again.

    After everything is fitted again i will post the voltage i have used and temperature it gets.

    Sounds like that fan will only run a 14xx. Try another 120MM on the cooler instead, then you know it will go faster

    Also higher RPM isn't always better. Pushing air through a HS is hard work. Over a third of the surface of the fan is effectively blocked by the fins, making static air pressure produced much more important than RPM. A higher static pressure 50CFM fan is usually much more effective than a low static pressure 75CFM fan as the CFM rating is measured on an unobstructed fan.

    Definitely check seating of the cooler and re-apply TIM. Note that switching to TX-2/MX-2 will not give super awesome results on its own. Any more than a 3-4c improvement means that the old paste wasn't applied correctly or the HSF wasn't seated right.

    As long as the case is well vented your top down cooler is fine. I prefer towers because they direct heat right to the extraction but top down has its + points. Saves using another fan to blow over NB and RAM. Note that it will be blowing warmed air over these components though, helping but not as much as a seperate fan and tower cooler would.

    It is quite possible from the 25c temp drop when on stock that the reason for the heat is also OC settings. This time, set your voltages especially Vcore manually and only to what you need. Auto will add too much voltage to high over clocks, causing issues including too much heat. In extreme cases it can cause damage to your components.

    Reviewing the documentation of this cooler i notice that max RPM is 1450.
    So bios is correct and i let it run at max speed now.

    RPM on website of this cooler is incorrect !

    Also i have notice that this cooler is mounted in the wrong direction.
    Therefore i have turned it 180 in the other direction.

    Using 3 drops of artic cooling paste should be enough.

    Temperature will follow after i have mounted all pieces together and run the tests needed.

    Voltage will be adjust too when i start to overclock again.

    Thx to all guys who have repplyed and putting me in the correct direction to look for abnormal temperature when running prime.

    Good luck, hope your temps get better.

    One small pea size dot of paste in the middle is all you need
