Pretty good but why do you have a Ram cooling fan with it? The ram itself has heat spreaders.

The ram does have tall heat spreaders. I did not use the Kingston ram fans. Instead I install a separate fan blowing across all sticks towards the top 200 mm fan blowing out. Some the air also blows across the north bridge. Just a little extra cooling cheep. I'm still working with fans trying to get things a little cooler. O/C TO 4.0, 100% load, 78 deg. for 20 min. I'm still tinkering. Tomorrow I should get 4 Noctua P14 and give two of them a try on the H50.

The H50 is not doing the job I'm asking it to do. Waiting for the new H100 to come out. Should be soon in U.S.A., it's in the E.U. A Corsair H100 dual 120 radiator should fit nicely in the top of my 600T.

Their is nothing wrong with the H50. It does what it is designed for. I'm lapping and have different fans on order to try and get things a little cooler. The 960 run hot. Many people have H5O and H70 and are very happy. The point I was trying to make is; I might be trying to drive a railroad spike with a tack hammer. I should have my new fans this week and I will see what happens. I looking into many possible solutions to getting cooler. I should be able to O/C to 4.0 running cool if I pick the proper cooling. I haven't given up on the H50 yet.

Looked into it for a long time. Some say the H50 is almost as good as a H70 (couple of degrees) and some say their the same. The H70 has a bigger radiator but the H 50 has a bigger pump. The fans are not bad. Some have improve the H50 and H70 with different fans so I think I will give it a try. If the fans get my temps where I want them it would be great. If they don't I will get something else. Which means lots of research again. I want something that has a small foot print on the cpu. Don't want a huge air cooler that gets in the way of other things on the mother board and disturbs the the air flow of the case. I did a lot of looking at the Corsair 800D and big water cooling but I wanted to try something smaller to get done what I want to do.
