I lied. Xigmatek does make 200mm fans. This one would work nicely (200x20):
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK Cooling System XLF XLF-F2003 200mm LED Orange Case Fan PSU Molex Adapter/extender included
Still pretty low CFM though.

Yha, the 650Ds has been upped to 100cfm, but i think due to the low pressure, it doesnt get pushed out very far.

Whats your top options? 120s or also 140s?

Well, they are 200mms right now, but if a 140 pushed more air I could make that work. 120s would be too small.

There's this, but I don't know how good they are:

I've seen that fan on a 650, but they removed both drive bays to get it to fit.

So, I checked temps last night and it's running low 40's idle and low 60's to high 50's load. That's stock. When I get the TRUE on there then I'll see what OC temps look like. With this board though they recommend a downward airflow CPU cooler, if not then there needs to be a 50mm fan on the chipset, which will dissipate air through the other components.

Quick update. I got the TRUE on there with two Xigmatek XLF-F1253 fans in push-pull. Temps are good at stock and also at 4.5 GHz. I'll be pushing it up to 5.0 or higher, hopefully, this weekend when I have some time.





Temps-
Stock heatsink idle:


Stock heatsink load:


TRUE stock speed idle:


TRUE stock speed load:


TRUE 4.5 GHz idle:


And finally....TRUE 4.5 GHz load:


I'm pretty impressed so far with how well the motherboard is distributing the airflow. It's recommended to use a 50mm fan on the chipset if not using a downward blowing CPU cooler, but so far I haven't had much of an issue as you can see.

I would die for a motherboard like that, but in AMD flavor
