Apologies, my bad,Fingers got to typing before engaging brain in thought mode.OMG, I think I just had my first premature senior moment
I finally stumbled onto my batch number (buried on my desk I knew I wrote down) 1429PGS
Easily solved with one of these (Bluetooth dongle) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833340012This happens to be what I picked up for the GF's wireless headphones. Works great!
I can't say for sure, perhaps. It wouldn't be any surprise.I will share the fact I also had to RMA a M4A785M (a $68.00 mobo) a few years back and had the same experience. So for whatever it's worth I just felt it necessary to share my personal experience with ASUS RMA's.Now if you want to talk about customer support by phone, that's a completely different animal. They can be real.... I'll just say for me it's always less than desirable They could use a good lesson from...
Best board for a 8350 is either the Saborkitty rev2 or the CHV-Z the latter being my first choice. And all this talk about ASUS RMA being a PITA just wasn't so for me when I RMA'd my first CHV-Z (bought day of release). Went exactly as it should with no issues, just saying.You may want to look this over as it'll make it much easier for those trying to help you if we know what all your system contains. http://www.overclock.net/t/1258253/how-to-put-your-rig-in-your-sig
OCing using Turbo is more for those trying to undervolt IMHO. Not the way to go. This may help explain better http://www.overclock.net/t/1348623/amd-bulldozer-and-piledriver-overclocking-guide-asus-motherboard/3230#post_23572195
Here's my Have a look at this (if you're not aware, click snip than in lower right hand corner click "Original" to veiw full screen) located here http://www.overclock.net/t/946407/amd-motherboards-vrm-info-databaseYou're asking way to much to OC a 8350 with a 4+2 Phase Count and while attempting to do so you are over heating the VRM's which is probably causing the thermo shut down you experience and NOT the temp of the CPU Cores. If you continue you may/probably do...
I'll have to look for it, I'm sure I wrote it down somewhere. I'll either post it here or PM you the info depending how long it takes to locate. There's always that chance I may not have written it down but either way I'll get it to you.
It's in the 3rd spoiler above, 1.475v.Remember to click on snip, than in lower right hand corner click "Original" to view full screen if you're not aware With all three having higher than 1.5v for CPU VID (Core #0 VID in HWInfo64) means you have even worse luck than me in the silicon lottery (just teasing, please don't be offended okay)This is actually my 1st chip that's half way decent for anything less than extreme cooling to be honest.Tonight since posting above I ran...
I never stress test with any power saving turned on but once stable I've never had any issues running them and always do. Even at 5016MHz I've never had an issue (see rig sig) which when encoding it still cranks to max voltage for hours along with the voltage ups and downs and still is not a problem for me To each there own but my thinking is why pound the system with the added voltage when not necessary. Please note, my OC's are only stable if they pass a minimum of 24...
