its because iv been reading all about seasonic and good corsair all about those GOOD PSU and how important it is and i wasn't sure if mine is OK , but yea thanks for looking it up iv seen some others reviews in Spanish too and they all say its good and cheap if you compare it to the others 1200W ...

------------------
edit i just bumped my bus to 105Mhz so cpu went to 4.5GHz and ram 1.95GHZ and voltage 1.32V .....


well i think I finally decided to go with the DELL monitor smaller then the 27" BENQ but still it should be better
another pair of ram and Logitech diNovo Mini , im thinking about an NZXT Sleeved LED too but I think im too lazy for that


and I finally left it at 4.45GHz (buss 103.5MHz ; multi x43 ; 1.315V ; ram at 1931MHz )
a lot of things on auto ... EPU power saving on ; DIGI Phase control at Optimized ; Loadline calibration 50% ; DIGI+VRM CPU Current Protection at 120% ; DIGI+VRM Switching Frequency at AUTO )

First day playing with my motherboard and im loving it.

I set the overclock for my 2600k to 4.6 in the bios and all was good until i started getting random BSODs while using convertxtodvd on a few SD videos.

I then found the autotune button on AIsuite and gave that a go. Doubled my GPU clock but only went upto x43 on the multiplier

Is that a common result? if it is just the luck of the draw with the chips then no biggie

Thanks for looking.

The temperatures are amazing so far, not really pushed it past 34c yet despite hammering though some video encodes @ upto 10 times faster then my old Pentium D!

The BSOD's are possibly fixed. I changed the 'number of cores' setting in convertxtodvd from 8 (8 was its maximum which i assumed was it noticing i have 8 threads available) down to 4.

Only worrying thing i seen so far is a system freeze while i was converting a mkv in the same program, this was after i has used the auto tuning app. My guess here was that it didnt like the gpu/memory or base clock speeds it arrived at? Is it possible/normal for this app to mess up like that?

Have defaulted bios and manually changed to 4.6 overclock and xmp settings for the time being.

Regarding the bios update to 7xx. I currently have 902 how would I update to 7xx. I tried the AI tool and tried doing it through the bios. Nothing worked so far.

Bios version #0706 is NEWER than version #0902 ... you're trying to downgrade/or roll back, and some others have also reported troubles doing this go back a few pages it was discussed and resolved if memory serves me right.

Well I had hoped to finish my build this weekend, but when it came down to drinking or working on my rig on Saturday... Drinking won

Then by the time I got around to it today and found out I was running out of heatshrink the hardware store was closed.... But I got quite a bit done and only have my 6 pin pcie, 2 more fans and my power/reset buttons to sleeve/wire. (and whenever I remember to bring it into work I am getting rid of my window and putting some mesh in its place)

Here are some pics of the fun I was having tonight (last night but im still up)




















But anyway that was my repin of the psu (all sata, atx 24 pin, pcie, and 8 pin cpu), sleeve, and wiring job. Took soooo long.

Im not really happy with the quality of sleeving I got this time and after Lutro0 sent me a few inches of the MDCP sleeving to check out I will definitely go with that for my next build. (IB) Its much nicer...

Wrong, 0902 is newer and still beta.

You got it right. I know I've read somewhere a procedure to flash an older BIOS but don't remember where.

Why not keep 0902? It will be out of BETA in a month or so... unless he have problems?
