    see the cpu vcore @ 1.3v?? you can lower that alot try with 1.20000v or around 1.18750v in the bios,you shouldnt need that much for stock cpu clocks,set up fan like i have in my pic,move sliders to adjust fan speed unless you have high rpm fan then lower it if its noisy,i have 1700rpm fan for cpu

    The voltage plus fan adjustment options have no doubt worked. Now my PC is at 43C. Fans are too loud though. Will have to see where my balance lies.

    I guess I've learnt that low voltage helps to keep temps down.
    What are the benefits of having voltages either low or high?

    Do you know how I could change my fan speeds without

    Thanks for the cooler PC would still like to aim for mid 30s though. Apparently I have a very good CPU cooler...

    However it was very tricky to put on this mobo (GA-X58A-UD3R) and with the Patriot Viper Extreme 6GB RAM I had to raise the fan a bit. I wonder whether the benefit of getting the Scythe Mugen 2 is nullified by the fact the fan isn't at the ideal height.

    I currently have the fan parallel to the Powerfan. If I moved the fan around to a side where the RAM wasn't then it could be at the ideal height. The clips would allow me to do this. Is it worth a shot?

    Edit: ran Prime 95 test for 2 mins and temps went to 82C before I stopped it. What can I do to ensure the temps remain within reasonable limits?

    whats your cpu voltage set at?? does that case have the psu at the bottom?? and a fan in the case at the top? if so you could mount the cpu cooler horizontal so it blows hot air out the top of the case??

    Cpu vcore is 1.1875v
    qpi/vtt is 1.3v
    cpu pll is 1.8v (auto)

    just got a long beep - problem with RAM or mobo according to manual. Dammit.

    My fan was in horizontally before. I've just changed it to vertical so it sits lower and more in line with the HS.

    Edit: the long beep is not there when I reboot. What's up with that? I made no changes.

    CPU temp was up to 50C. my current room temp is 30.2C

    quickboot is disabled already

    warning for cpu temp is set at 70C/158F.

    I think I might have yet another go at installing the CPU cooler whilst checking the grease. Maybe even wiping it clean and putting on the paste that came with the cooler rather than Spire sp-700. Although I don't know what quality the paste is from Mugen but the spire is supposed to 2.3C worse than arctic silver 5.

    CPU temp now down to 48/49C.

    tuniq tx-2 is supposed to be the best thermal paste,alot better than arctic silver 5, i wouldnt worry about the beep if its not causing the pc to crash and temps are ok,mines 40-44c at the moment i used arctic silver 5 aswell but wanna try tx-2

    thanks for the reassuring advice re long beep.

    idle temps were a bit worrying. However the temps reached 82C after only 2 minutes of the Prime95 test and that's very very worrying. Something's not right.

    That's the issue that really needs sorting methinks. Once I get that sorted surely only then is it best to get a few C better from a quality thermal paste. Am I wrong. Would love to be wrong and be told how I am going about it all wrong.

    I have used my pc for any heavy stuff yet. Not going to until I can be sure I can use it without it going poof
