    So long as you stick with default voltage you will be fine. Just gently OC your processor to tide you over to your water cooling.

    the XP120 is a ***** to get on, but the 90 is effortless.

    I am using a Thermalright SLK 948U

    I have heat issues but i think it is BIOS related.

    Why not skip it all together? That would save you alot of money and hassle in the long run

    Is there any way to mod a regular 80mm fan into the stock AMD heatsink? I have a SF2 and an 80mm Tornado available. I am not considering Water cooling.
