Let me check again what I have set in BIOS on things, and I'll post them here, see if you have some better settings. BRB...

I tried the settings you recommended a few posts back, but no difference so far. I have my VCORE at 1.4 V, and OC at 4.5 Ghz.

Californiarailroadguy. Your temps are way to high.

Your VCore1 is the DigiVRM/Mofset set to the left of the CPU socket in normal mounting position. These temps suffer greatly with a BD installation. However your high temps on these particular parts tells me that you do not have proper airflow across this portion of the motherboard. Usually a quick and easy way depending on your case is to turn the rear fan from exhaust to intake. Depending on your CPU cooling solution you may need to adjust this to avoid flow conflicts. The other option you have is to add a fan specifically for this or water cooling.

Just some info for you!

I will take a few AI suite screen shots but I do all my settings in the bios!!!

Plus the memory hole remaping thing is very important to disable on all these chips, plus I go into the dram driver mode (thing right under timings) and max all out but the 160ns thing think it looks like 2x 2x 2x 2x 1.5x 1.5x 160ns and the same on each ram chip I have it twice

Thanks for the tips and info ORL and Bradford! I have a Antec Spot Fan blowing directly on the VRM, and for rear exhaust I have the Antec Kuhler 920 and fans in push/pull config. Everthing is running cool as a cucumber EXCEPT for VCORE-1. I will see if I can change the Spot Fan around a bit. I have the HAF X Case, with a 200 MM Fan on the side and front bringing in cool air, and 2 200 MM fans on the top blowing air out, along with the Antec Kuhler 920 fans too of course.

Well, I adjusted the spot fan a bit, and VCORE-1 is idling at 38C and VCORE-2 at 33C.

Edit-Thanks mucho for the screen shots! I only mod mine in BIOS too, it's the only way I think!

Well, I set the Antec Spot Fan directly on top of the VRM's, and then ran Prime95 for a bit, temps on the VCORE-1 maxed out at 64-65, still a bit warm but MUCH better!

8+2 isnt enough anymore,this is why the heavy current intels have more phases....seems the POWAH! draw was more than the Manu's thought.
With ASUS track record in heatsink mounting,maybe a remount is in order....
VRM's go to the high 90's without harm,not 24hr crunching safe tho

You might want to reduce the vcore abit. 1.57v is too much for 3.84ghz...

I have actually been considering a remount of my own. I had not done it yet because of time constraints. Has anyone experience here with just replacing the existing thermal interface with another non conductive and your results?

The other thing is... I STILL NEED A WATERBLOCK for this motherboard! I am unable to find one that will work! Anyone have some helpful info here or experience?

Will the CHV or CHIV full cover blocks do it?
