Hello, i recently bought Guild wars 2, however, i'm getting around 50 fps and it dips to around 30 maybe even lower. My GPU usage is 58% and my cpu is at 46%. Is it my cpu that is limiting it as my cpu is a 2.8ghz 6 core processor, assuming guild wars 2 only uses 4, that's still enough to run guild wars 2 on ultra? Help would be appreciated.

CPU: AMG 1055t 6 core 2.8Ghz
RAM: 8gb Fast ddr3
OS: Windows 8 x64
GPU: Gainward GeForce GTX 660 Ti Phantom 2GB

Overclock that X6 1055T to 3.5ghz or more depending on your cooling. If your air I wouldnt try 4ghz. I OC my 1055t with liquid and it made a big difference.

Thinking about getting the NH-D14 - should be able to oc to 4Ghz easy at 50 degrees full load.

Good idea. I would also look at your PSU and make sure you have enough juice. How is your ram?
PS this is a good site that helped me quite a bit.

Then burn your PC with prime95 and let it run for 24 hours.  If you don't get any errors then you're good to go :)

Do you recommend i get the NH-D14 then? as expensive as it is. Are there any cheap alternatives that are as good?
I appreciate all your help

Here, even though it is in Dutch, some google translating should give you a nice little look under the hood of some high end coolers.

The test is based on an i7 platform so do check your sockets.

I own an Noctua D14 in 2 of my rigs.  It's wonderful.   I highly recommend it to push really high clocks.

Just be aware, it's VERY LARGE.  The pictures do it no justice.  The D14 will crush and bend any RAM modules that have fins over 4-5mm above the normal PCB on the DIMM.  

Additionally, you need a fairly wide case to support it.  To give you some idea of scale, this is it pictured in daily driver rig, which is a HAF 932 case.

Man that thing is huge lol. What are the thermal differences to say a H80?

It beats out the H80 by a decent margin.  The H100 can't even keep up unless it's paired with Push/Pull configured high static pressure fans.  Overall, the D14 is a beast in all ways.

I might have to look into one of those for my next build. That thing is so big I want to wire it to the top of that chassis so it doesn't break your sli configuration :P

Before I got my super huge Extreme7 motherboard, I had a P55 motherboard.  In that config, the fins actually touched the back of one of my 580s.  I put a piece of anti-static bag cut out between them to make sure nothing happened.  So, you need to make sure that the motherboard has enough room between the CPU and the first 16x PCIe slot to accommodate it.

There's actually a good amount of room between them now.  The picture doesn't show it well.
