Here's my p67pro with the mugen 2, i though i could raise the fan over the memory but then i can't close the case door.

Sorry if you've posted it earlier in the thread, but which RAM kit do you have? I need to compare heat spreaders to determine. Also, my board had an additional heatsink to the left of the CPU socket but it appears if the RAM isn't an issue this won't be either.

Think I decided on the board I want.

MSI P67A-GD55

http://us.msi.com/index.php?func=pro...=&prod_no=2071

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130552

It has what I want and gets rid of a lot of extras. Trying to go as simple as possible on this build and see if I like it or not. When comparing this to a top of the line board like the UD7 they need to have so many more chips to puzzle piece the extras in.

The intel sata controller supports 2 6gbps sata ports and 4 sata 3gbps. Some boards have 3 extra chips on them just to support more ports. (One for SATA3,sata2, and esata) I have the esata bracket so I'll just plug that into one of the sata ports if I really need it.

No NF200 bridge chip, but it still has SLI support. Guessing since MSI sells nvidia graphics cards they can get around the license issue. The only disadvantage is that the slots are configured really strange because of the low number of PCI-E lanes. If you want to run SLI you can't have anything in any of the other PCI-E slots otherwise it will drop the 2nd card down to x1. So if you need to use those slots you might want to get a board with bridge chip if you're going to run SLI or crossfire.

I have the corsair vengeance kit, there's plenty of clearance around the heatsink, it shouldn't interfere with the heatsinks around the cpu socket.

Thanks for the pic. It looks like the base has more clearance than I thought. I think I'll order one up right now.

Got 4700Mhz working not higher thought, volts already kinda high , this MicroATX is poor clocker lack several features probably weak CPU also. Got bad luck

I don't think 4.7GHZ is bad luck. I'm happy if I can just get 4.4ghz like most people seem to be able to.

interesting chip... pretty good temps for that much voltage (1.448V).

Thumbs up Re: -= Official Intel P67 / Sandy Bridge / i3 2100 / i5 2500K / i7 2600K Review Threa

Before i removed dust filters from Antec P180 they ran over 96'C so airflow is very important ,with side panel open it runs cooler then temps in my pic so i know there is still room for improvement , the two front fans i have a cheapo ~1300rpm ones, later in the week will add some Noctua ones with better static pressure , see if that helps. Trying to avoid high rpms as this is my silent build.

What annoys me for this specific CPU of mine is cores 2,3 run much hotter then 1 and 4. No matter how much i reseat CPU cooler its always the same both under idle and load. Neither seem to be convex or concave , maybe 2,3 are just worse

Some guys at other forum getting these to 5ghz or over also on air cooling

You could try lapping the heatsink.

I agree about the voltage. But that is what a lot are using over at Extreme Systems to get to 5Ghz. On air too. Some are using as much as 1.5 volts. Pretty insane really. It will be interesting to see if these chips start dying at those volts.

In the ComputerBase Review, they needed 1.4V for 5GHz - that's ok, great even. But more voltage is just nuts and not acceptable.

IMO this takes a lot away from the product. I'm now even less interested
You're not really missing anything, given your setup and, anyway, you're awaiting for something better, right? Sandy Bridge E *teases*
