Have you ever place your hand on the stock mosfet heatsinks? If you are watercooling your CPU then the lack of fan on the mosfets is going to heat them up like crazy.

Mosfet watercooling is recommended if you are watercooling your CPU

The onboard lan is enabled in bios. Im going to try newest driver.

Update - Newest driver still not working.

Really, and where did you read this "recommendation"?

First, yes I have put my hand on the mosfets, otherwise I wouldn't make a statement like I did. Second, on the x58 it was recommended due to the amount of heat that both the NB and mosfets produced, even with good airflow, however, on SB since there is no longer a NB and the CPU's do not use as much power as previous chips the mosfets due not get hot, airflow or not. Do they get warm? Yes, but not so much you cannot hold your finger to them. Water cooling the mosfets is only needed when a board incorporates the NF200 chip and they share the same heatsink. The MIV Gene does not have a NF200 chip and therefore water cooling the mosfets does not add any additional benefit except for "looks". It's like ram, back when they needed 2.0v to run they would get hot, now they use 1.5v or less and only get warm to the touch. If you water cool your ram it is only for cosmetic reasons, nothing more. Now, the only exception to all this is if you are benching with LN2 or Phase, which means you are putting way more volts through everything than you normally would and then, because of the added heat by the increase in voltage, water cooling or active cooling would be helpful. Look at the EVGA mATX P67/Z68 board, it doesn't even have a heat sink because it isn't needed, although on it I would put something to cool the mosfets if you use water cooling since you are taking away any type of cooling it normally would have gotten from an air cooler.

Ok, so first, when you connect the lan cable do you get any lights on the port? If not and you are sure it is enabled in the bios, try reflashing the bios. If you still do not get any lights on the lan port, then it may be dead. The other thing to check is in Windows under "Devices", see if it is even being recognized as a device.

Right,

So using the two step guide as recommended, I'm able to get into windows and at a glance seems pretty stable. I've got it clocked to 4.6Ghz....

Just for general PC use it seems to be around 37 degrees

I thought I should stress test it with prime95....after an hour, (which I know isn't long enough), it gets hot at around 85 degrees. I'm guessing this is not good....so I quit the stress test and the temp dropped back to about 36 degrees.

It changes so much between idle and loading!

The temps above were based on readings from the Asus AII software. I was also running RealTemp, which reports slightly higher values.

I've attached 2 images for both states.

What should I do? Reduce my over clock to say 4.4/4.2?

Thanks

Are you going to be folding with it? If not, don't worry about it. A stress test is not real world. No game and most applications would never put your cpu at 100% all the time like a stress program does. I also think 87 degrees is fine, but I may be wrong on that, it's been awhile since my chips went that high.

Nope, not going to be folding....however, I do render in V-ray. For complicated scenes they can take 2/3 hours to render (processor will be at around 100% for the entire duration). If I am stressing it at 87, even though it's okay, is it likely to damage my rig, or will the processor just die earlier? It's not likely to melt the mobo is it? (Sorry n00b fears).

If I do an animation, it can be an entire day!

Do games stress the CPU @ 100%??

Also, is the Asus software reliable? I remember on my old Striker Extreme, I was warned not to trust anything it produces temperature wise.

Surely though, Asus know how to monitor their own boards?

Yes they do ... as others have mentioned, the problem comes in when you have multiple programs doing the same things ... just like your computer doesn't like have TWO anti-virus programs working at the same time ... so too the Asus Gene-Z and Asus Suite II software programs don't like or work well with other conflicting programs ... case in point why the Asus AII software TEMP and RealTemp programs are conflicting and giving you different info, use only ONE or the other.

It seems like many would rather trust other 3rd party programs with much of this duty, and just disable the Asus Suite II software all together ? I know utnorris has suggested using Cupid's HWMonitor ...
