LA_Kings_Fan, you may want to contact (email/chat) Newegg and see if they will honor the savings, since they are out of stock. They are likely being asked the question already. Sapphire may be willing to support it with an order committment from you, too. Good luck with the unlock! biggrin.gif

I hope you are right about Labor Day savings, too.

You will be able to overclock it to Toxic specs anyways so I think it is a no brainer.

IF ONLY it were in stock sozo.gif ... I'm just bumming ... who knows maybe it's for the best and NewEgg has some really AWESOME sale planned for the Labor Day weekend rolleyes.gif

This question was not adressed to me but I also wanted to point out that I PM'ed him the next day you told us to do so and I even gave him a case number of an open ticket I had regarding this but I never heard back from him.

And people dealing with the open ticket didn't know what I was talking about so that's why I wanted him to take a look since it was related.

If you ever write him again, tell him this!

Was wondering if you guys are experiencing slow POST times with this board...

It literally takes 20 seconds before Windows even starts to load, which is annoying because the rest of the boot process is over in less than ten.

I have tried changing the AI settings to XMP, which brought up the BCLK box (which was already set to 100.0), and also tried setting it to manual (which was also already set to 100.0). I've disabled everything else that I don't use.

I'll post tomorrow also asking if it's ok to disable the stuff I did, this is all foreign to me.

Two or three people have mentioned it, but everyone else seems fine with their boot up times ? so I don't know if some came from faster boards before and just expected something too much, or maybe you have something turned on or a setting in place that the rest of us don't ?
Hard to know without being there seeing your setup, so ???

There's been a couple posts way back in the thread
(see post #1046, #1047, #1136, #1273, #1275, and #1292-1296 might even be more do a search ?) that for most of us it's under 30 seconds from touching the POWER ON button until we're at the Windows Log-In Screen. At least for me, that's like twice as fast as my old system, so I'm HAPPY with it.

Try the Autotune (CPU level up) option, to 4.2 or 4.6. It may just work as-is, no need to set anything else.

Ok do you know what temperature that will make the CPU run at? I am looking in to possibly getting a Corsair H80 or H100 water cooler for it but need another pay check for that. And I dont want to run the CPU to hot.
