Hey guys I have a quick question, my power supply only has a 4 pin power connector. Can i run the board with the 4 pin and use an adapter for another 4 pin? I do plan on overclocking

@ HeatGuy

I can't say about the CPUID Hardware Info showing the same 135C MOBO temp.....but I do know that the Asus Suite is not at all reliable and will give high over volt warnings as well as high temp mobo warnings....and they are both false. I used it when my board was new and experienced the same as you. Other peeps have had the same problem.

I use this app and it is accurate

http://www.hwinfo.com/download64.html

The overclocking features the Asus Suite provides are not up to par either. The best way to a stable OC with these boards is with the "offset" method...and C3/C6 states "off". Turning those C states off eliminates too low of an idle voltage thus eliminating freeze ups @ idle.

Hope this is of value to you thumb.gif

edit: I am referring to the HWINFO Sensor Status app not the System Summary.

My understanding the Marvell controller is garbage and not recommended. I can't remember the exact details, but it actually has problems.

Correct. I have that disabled in BIOS as well.

Thanks for the tip. I started using HW Info now. Will continue to monitor to see how the temperatures look.
I actually didn't use AI Suite to overclock. I followed the oc.net official sandy bridge overclock thread. I guess now it's just time to uninstall AI Suite biggrin.gif

I'll let you know if the temperature go out of whack again.

My Mianboard is a Asus P8Z68 V-GEN3 Board
For an hour i had a problem, my CPU went on 4,3 GHZ and the cores warmed up to 80-90 °c .
So i thought *** and rebooted.
Then my CPU when it does nothing is on 1648 mhz and all core have a tempature from 32 °C - 35°C .
Then i've downloaded prime 95 and started a stress test and then the temperature of my cores went to 80 °C again.
Wold be nice if someone can explain me what to do
I'm very sorry for my bad english

Stress tests at 80C aren't necessarily bad. You could invest in a better CPU cooler to keep temperatures lower. 98C is where the CPU turns itself down due to overheating. Most people consider 75 to 85C to be the maximum allowable during a stress test.

85C is a bit high for 4.3GHz but you probably are on stock heatsink and fan, so that's "normal" and nothing to worry about. Just don't try to overclock until you get a better heat-sink and fan.

So...if you disable the marvell controller on a z68-v pro/gen3, which seems to be the thing to do (I believe Shad0wfax recommended it as well) does that mean you lose 2 of your 6.0 gb sata 3 connections, or can those be "converted" over to the intel controller? I was really hoping to use those other two 6.0's for my data HDD's.

If you are going to run short of Sata connections then leave the Marvell ones enabled and use them for optical drives. My board has 4 light blue...2 light gray (white?) and 2 navy blue sata connections. The Navy blue ones are the supposed trouble makers and I have them disabled in BIOS and use "all" of the others as I have 6 tb of drive space.

edit: it is my understanding that no HDD or SSD can make full use of the lesser speed ports much less the 6gb ports...so ,not a loss of efficiency

Like Dennyb suggested, I believe that optical,drives are fine on the Marvell controller.
