    are you still at stock cpu speed? have you thought about trying a prolimatech megahalems cooler? there expensive but are the best,another good budget cooler is the akasa nero s i had the akasa nero but it had intel pushpins and was a nightmare to fit but it cooled good,the new nero s has a backplate now

    Yeah I tried to get my hands on a megahalems but they were out of stock (aria, scan, yoyotech - those I bought from). The one I got is supposed to be excellent too.

    Surely it must be either faulty or I've installed it incorrectly.

    I am seriously considering replacing it though. But would like to find out why this thing isn't working first! Is it because it's not compatible or something else?

    check this out too...a must-have buy

    Scythe Mugen 2 CPU Cooler Introduction :: TweakTown

    Thanks for the Novatech headsup. I've added it to the basket and need to find some quiet fan(s) to go with it. More research. Meanwhile I'm still looking up on the Scythe website to see if the Mugen 2 is compatible with the X58a-UD3R mobo.

    If I'd have known this HS would have been such an issue then I would have waited. Oh well, at least I'm (er was) optimistic.

    However the Mugen 2 isn't bad so why is it not performing. Will I not have the same issue if I get any other cooler?

    Current room temp 24.7C
    Current cpu temp, idle, after 5 mins, 35C - Hallelujaaaaaaaahhh!
    One side of case is still open (I don't like the look of those red LEDs in the top right corner!)

    Now - must try not to get my hopes up until testing completed.

    Things I changed: (for those who are unlucky enough to go through this rubbish as I did)

    (case is Lian-Li PC-B25F)
    -Longer section of Mugen 2 is now horizontal when case is standing
    -HSF is facing upward/downward when case is standing
    -I used the simple small pea-sized blob method of thermal paste onto middle of cpu (previously I tried the smearing with credit card method)
    -Moved GPU to lowest PCI-Express 16x slot so as to create as much space as possible for the HSF to suck in air to cool the CPU

    gotta take 5 now before I test this mother(board and cpu)

    red leds? i think they just display the memory usage it will tell you in the manual what the leds are for,you can turn them on or off in dynamic energy saver,and yeah 35c is much better

    Yes, those are phase LED's, you can disable them by uninstalling DES
