did you buy 1600 RAM and its just set to 1333, or do you actually have 1333. If you bought 1600 then you just go into the BIOS, go into advanced mode and there will be a drop down of the ram speeds. dont forget to make sure the timings and voltages are set to manufactures specs.

I have to say I am not 100% liking the new OCN set up, I am just a creature of habit so it will be some time before I get used to it.

But the 903 bios just came out for the CH-V yesterday which it seems that the CH-V is about 4 days ahead of sabertooth's bios releases, so hope in 3 more days we will have a better FX bios!!!! About F'n time ASUS!

The board was only made special for the FX-Chips and released in June so by November you would think they had a bios for it?

One thing I am still seeing allot of is FX-bashing from Intel fan-boys! I never understand that???? Why bash ether one?

I have found out another problem with my system and why I was not able to get past 4.73ghz stable POWER!!! My 850watt PSU is just not able to push out enough or the EPS plug just is set to low on over current protection,
I get up to 5+ghz and it seems fine but just shuts off randomly which I must of just been stupid that day not to think about it, Now I have another PSU and was thinking of hooking it up to power just the board and the 850 the cards
or I have a raidmax 1000watt PSU that I got from Butterz which I was going to open up and resoder the connections which seem to be the only thing wrong with the raidmax's reviews! I have one running my Q9550 at 4ghz and three GTX 260's
fine for about 4 months now so it mite just be fine on it own but couldn't hurt to check it. I mite get more out of the FX-8150 if the power goes up enough, or maybe the bios is the problem ether way I am going to find it out lol

I picked up one of these to run with my TWKR ES but I heard those aren't good for air cooling ocing' .. so I'm thinking to switch this up to a 960T pending on how well it'll unlock the extra cores.. otherwise 8150 will be the pick..

so, how well do these unlock the extra cores of cpus?

Man let us know if its psu related, I switched to the ax850 today for a more dependable psu from the gs800, but if the 850 isnt enough for current fx and future fx chips I may need to return and get the hx1050 or ax1200 lol (i like corsair)

its the psu. at the clocks he is running plus those 2 460's, 850w just aint going to cut it. iirc, the 8150 can pull over 400w at full load when oc'ed that high. also those video cards are eating up that psu too. the 400 series were power hungry. then you have to take into consideration whatever else he has running in his rig. so yea, a 1kw should do the job.
