the only solution is to run your fans at full speed so there is no power dump if you want minimal motherboard temps. the temps you have now are fine and will not hurt anything.

i tried everything to cool mine down with fans but it just wont happen the only thing to get mine down was taking all my fans off the board and using the controller.

I'm thinking about getting a asus maximus and I'm wondering if the first IV gene is still good? I'm I losing out on performance with the IVY bridge I5 in anyway with one?

You are asking the wrong group. smile.gif Of course it's still good...we love it. thumb.gif


My advice, if you can get a good deal on the IV, get it...unless you think that you will need more than two 6Gps SATA 3 connectors. There are certainly other advantages of the V, but if I could get the IV for $50 less, I would probably get it. Unfortunately, I can't.

The IV is available now on Newegg for $189.99 with 10% off...making it close to $170. The V is $10 off for a price of $199.99. Shipping is the same. Is $30 worth it? That's got to be your call. Depends on your budget...and the need for the latest and greatest...and the value that you place on that riser card slot, upgraded onboard sound, etc.

Hey guys, just completed my first custom rig that I didn't have someone else build haha!

I'm also new to overclock.net, but I think my setup is displayed correctly in rigbuilder.

Anyway I just wanted to post to say that I love this mobo and so far I think my first overclock is going great. Any feedback on my numbers would be much appreciated. smile.gif
Doing this in a hurry let me know if I left anything out.


Idle:
374

Full Load:
375

Probably should add proof too:
374


Also, I don't know who goes through the Google Docs uploads for club entries, but I think I may have made a typo. I meant to put HAF 922 for my case tongue.gif

Hellow there. First timer posting here in this forum... been a lurker for awhile tho XD,

Anyway, im having a little weird thing here.... Im trying to set the min. voltage for 4.2ghz im using 2 different types of apps to warm and test this overclock, Prime95 and intel burn test V2.
Im using Cpu-Z or Open Hardware Monitor to read the probes, readings are the same, but im having a discrepancy between CPU Voltage readings between both apps..

Prime 95 give me a constant reading of 1.240v where intel Burn Test V2 is giving me a constant reading of 1.256v, im using a offset of -0.100 so i can achieve 1.250.

Perhaps the intel burn test is just stressing it a little more. Since your using offset if the cpu asks for more, it will get more. The difference is very small though.

So, I just switched to a new case today, an FT03, and magically I am getting random shutdowns from the Asus Overvoltage protection thing saying the PSU is failing. I have a Seasonic X660 gold rated PSU, that I bought brand new 6 months ago. Havent had any issues with it. Just started having issues as soon as I put everything in this case.

Is it safe to turn off that over voltage protection in the motherboard? I have checked everything and cant find a problem....

You've double-checked for electrical shorts? A stray standoff maybe?
