Windows says 3.4ghz, which is wrong. I wonder when I'll get a program that will actually detect my settings!? Anyone know some forums for giga-byte possibly?
CoreTemp does not see it right? I have always used that... and welcome to the world of quads! I don't care what anyone says... I noticed a difference from 2 cores to 4

The TRUE mounting kit or one specifically for the Xigmatek?

This thing?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233019

Ive been using the Xigmatek since january and it hasnt fallen off even once!!!

Was a real ***** to install though ,I was never sure if the platic things were rotated right...

When I upgrade the cpu I'll be using a bolt thru kit, especially if I want to slap another fan on there.

Being all metal? The TRUE mounting kit would exert more pressure making better contact and more goodliness no?

Yea the true mounting bracket, not the one that came with the fan. It's a real nice fit for everything, except mounting the fan on the heatsink. That is still and issue, those crappy plastic pieces are junk...won't fit through the fan holes so I have to jimmy-rig it up on the heatsink.

Going to try and make a paperclip assembly or something like that and see if that works.
