Hi everyone, new to the forums, and was needing a little help to optimize my new build for best performance. I really don't think I need to overclock my system or anything I just think there are some settings that I could probably turn on that may make my system run better. I don't know much about bios settings. Here is my build.

well other than overclocking the only thing i could think of doing is seeing your ram speed and timings are set correct, other than that you will max out any game you want so no worries there

I am at work right now, when I get home I can write down what they are at and post it. I don't know if it is or not. I was trying also to run stress tests to make sure cooling was ok. I ran prime 95 for about 15 minutes and it seemed the hottest it got was 85c. I was told though to check and make sure the pump is at full power all the time on the h50. I have it connected to a fan header cha fan 2. And I went into bios and it said that it was set to standard. So I'm guessing that's normal or is there another setting?

No you will need to disable fan control if you connect the pump there

I didn't have a disable option I had quit standard and turbo, I put it on turbo. Hope that works
