So what you did raise FSB and NB Clock, If NB clock up and tweak ur ram manual DOCP and set max timing. Dont up ur voltage RAM are high 1.8v, stay 1.65/1.68.v

quick question.
i am having a problem running my ram at the native 1600 1.5v-sig rig system.
should i up my volts?
would 1.6 be safe?
i just finished my system and started tweeking it and have some more questions.
once i get my ducks in a row i will join this club, been following it for a while and i like what i see-maturity.

I just went through this with my cousins build, vengence 1.5v 1600 memory, I needed to give it 1.6 to be stable. We just got it together the other day and he isnt a power user but I will probably do more tweeking later this week on it. I believe i read once that intel 1.5v might work fine with their memory controllers or whatever but amd might need more.

i have completed a stable 3.8 stable over clock.. with a 1090t cpu. I plan to over clock more after i fix a problem . I set my Vcore to 1.4 volts but it seems to idle at .1404 and it may go up with stressing it playing games or test.. For example 1.428>?? or mybe higher... Can somone give me advice to not allow my vcore to move at all if possible?

specs: 1090t , sabertooth, vengence ram etc

Umm...thermal radar which you can keep track or pin-point temperature reading sensors on the mobo. More SATA ports. Ans 5 year warranty.

I plan to get this board once I see promotional discounts for it. I saw it went on sale for $184.99 back then, but maybe Black Friday could be cheaper? Who knows. Just wait and find out.

My Crosshair V died after 4 days and is being RMA'd, so far I've found the SABERTOOTH a much more stable and better board, no problems with the LAN, the USB detection seems better and it ran my 2133Mhz G.Skill without having to play with the drive strengths etc, unlike the V. I personally prefer this board and when the V comes back the wife can have it for playing cards on lol. It's not confirmed officially but the 0813 BIOS is supposed to fix the issues some people are having with steam games and FX CPU's. I haven't had problems with my 8150FX.
