AI Suite (crap) is known to cause issues and you'd be doing yourself a favor to uninstall it.It also does not play well with other monitoring utilities and issues like what you're seeing are fairly common.HWMonitor is okay but I've had much better results running HWInfo64.

I came across the information in the HWInfo64 forums but did not save a link.The values are easily verified by using the Probelt feature described on page 1-45 of the CHV-Z manual.In my setup the values are so close the difference isn't worth mentioning.Here's how mine looks after weeding out (hiding) the unwanted/needed values and renaming those I choose to keep. [[SPOILER]] The Mainboard temp is usually not a concern and usually does not vary much. You might be...
I made this post http://www.overclock.net/t/946327/official-asus-crosshair-v-formula-990fx-club/6580#post_21007875 which explains about which values are what on a CHV-Z when running HWInfo64.As for the fan, have you tried to disable CPU Q-Fan Control? Probably your best bet.I have a fan controller (in rig sig) that allows both PWM from the mobo and also a manual control which works great.
Perhaps this might also help http://www.overclock.net/t/933649/northbridge-speed-and-low-ram-timing-significance-on-amd-platforms
I've always used the EZ Flash 2 to go back and forth between bios versions without issue.Make sure flash drive is formatted FAT32DL bios and unpack to flash driveMake sure you use a usb 2.0 port as usb 3.0 drivers won't be loaded while you're in bios.Page 3-44 in manual
Wireless coconut hahahahahaha Clever. I like it!Check my twenty and it'll make more sense.
That VRM temp seems crazy high for that OC.Either you have extremely high ambient temps to deal with or there's an issue with the contact patch or something lacking in the loop.I've run mine at 1.65v and VRM temps don't change much at all. You did remove the stock back plate and stored that with the original HS right?If you'd post your Rig Sig it would make it easier to offer help with that temp.http://www.overclock.net/t/1258253/how-to-put-your-rig-in-your-sigLook closer,...
I don't have any links to share but have read others that are much more in the know claim quality mosfets are tested/run at 120c but not recommended.The CHV-Z's bios is default at 90c for the NB Overheat Protection and maximum is 100c. You could use that for a rough reference point.The CHIV had a recommended maximum NB temp of 80c (that comes from Asus)Mine rarely hits 40c even with a 25 hr run of Prime95.I run one of these probes...
These temps tell me you won't have any luck keeping temps in check due to a lack of possible air flow within the case (only two case fans?) regardless of which cooler you choose. You have to be able to supply/exhaust cool fresh air into any setup and cooling this animal to 4.8GHz is not an easy task. IMHO you're looking at an upgrade here first. I faced this very same issue of which way to go (wc/ac) and to accommodate either one required a new case so first thing I'd...
