I recently got myself one too, however I got temp problems: My VCORE-1 hits 45° at idle, under load up to 58° - with stock(!) voltages, open case and fans running at full speed.

With the case closed and vcore of ~1.45V I could hit over 70° degrees. I alway aborted benchmarks when I passed 68°, but peak was not yet reached.
So I thought, lets try a benchmark run with the open case and let the fans run at full speed, plus, why not point a hairdryer(set cool) at the nb heatsink.
That of course worked somewhat. When I touched the ceramix stuff it didn't seem very hot, then I touched the backplate - that thing was really hot - so I pointed the fan at the back of the board. Interesting result: It seemed to work just as well as the whole front cooler thing if not even better.
.


I honestly don't think you have any thing to worry about. I'm not sure what my vcore temps get to under load but idle vcore-1 is 49° and vcore-2 is 47°.
The vrms are made to take some heat, they have all the voltage going through them.

There are couple of things you can do in order to avoid a reintall of windows if you are changing motherboards, you need to uninstall all the drivers controllers from the motherboard or specific to the hardware and use the generic ones, then shutdown computer, swap the mobo and turn it on and it might work, if it doesnt saddly then you need to reinstall or fix your current windows installation.

I followed a guide that you can find on google about this subject, windows 7 manage the swaping of hardware very easily and i didnt need to format/reinstall windows, it worked perfectly fine, but then again i was going from an asus m5a87 to an asus sabertooth.

i just uninstalled the old drivers for my Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P and swapped it for my sabertooth and installed the new drivers. no probs.

Here is a video if you wanna see how nice the Sabertooth looks with this Corsair ram.

Wow. I feel cheated. I got the same ram but went with the black. Nice find thumb.gif

This rig was put together all parts brand new. No other OS has been installed on the drives, so it can have nothing to do with that. What I need are exact bios settings to get be past, or somewhere near the 4gig mark. I reflashed the bios to clean it out and start fresh. The OS is a fresh install, with ServicePK 1 installed, as well as other updates. I use Avast Pro, MalwareBytes AntiMalwarebytes Pro, GPU Tweak, the latest Realtek 2.67 drivers/firnware, ATI 12.1 drivers for G-cards, and have it set to 3.6 at the moment. Still seems a little dodgy, but its stable...not as stable as it should be. Going to look and see if there are new Crucial SSD firmware updates to see if that might be an issue, and if I have to, will format again since it only take a few hours to get it all set back up to my liking.
I did find out that my vcore, and other voltages were way too high for stock settings, but the flash put that in order. Its a pain running two SSD's in raid 0, and not much of an increase (if any) in performance. I also need some info in the HT settings.

I was of the mind that the settings I had were on a X 2 ratio, but apparently its a 1:1 ratio from what I am seeing on the forums. I know I got a good 1090T because I've had it to 4g+ several times with absolutely no heat issues. Temps are now running approx 36-38C while in bios. I loaded it to 75-85% with apps and still never got past 44C. The vcore1 temps run higher than the CPU temps, but only by 1 to 2 C.

My board temp is "ambient"....room temp, so I know I have plenty of possitive air flow in the right areas. PCI-e temps are both low as well. PCI-e1 is at 29C, and PCI-e 2 is at 28. Cards are set to 875/ 1120(4480 effective) but still run only 39C idle on slot 1, and slot 2 is 38C. Voltage through GPU is set to match GPU speeds, and locked in. I can easally get 920/1240 on both cards, but why? So I leave them at 875/1120.

Ran Heaven bench with HT and CPU/NB both set to 2600, and got a decent score of about 1500+ with Heaven set to 1920x1080, 8X, 8X last night at 3.85g on the CPU. Problem is, when I run my Power DVD, or anything else for any length of time, it starts getting boggy....even if its just sitting. Have had trouble on reboots even at stock 3.2ghz, and mem set to 1600mhz = 9-9-9-30-42-1T, or 2t. My mem doesn't like 2T at all being XMS 2000mhz Corsair. I have my mem in "factory" suggested possitions of #'s 2 and 4. Not sure if Asus is right about those placements of DDR3 DC mem sticks. Have thought about trying a single stick in #1 dimm, and see how it runs, but have had too much going on to get around to it.
That might be another issue to address as well.

Mem temps are great though, and setting the mem to any speed I want within a 9-11-10-30-42-1T range seems to have little effect on the problem.

Am a little concerned about Explorer browser, as I seem to have lots of lock ups while using it, but as I said, even sitting Idle it will bog slowly.

Have run every Malware test I can, even in safe mode, but no infection shows up.

Have uninstalled, and re-installed all mobo drivers, and software as well, but still get the same thing.

I'm beggining to think this could possibly be an SSD issue so I may break it down to a single 64gig drive, install, and test each one to see if there is a problem. That is about all I can think of as a possible cause for the lagging effect, and BSOD's I get when I crank on it some. This is one reason I wanted to get "specific" bios setting from someone using the same setup where CPU. mobo, mem, and drives are concerned. The G-cards are ok. I have 3 of the same cards, but can unfortunatly only use two as the 6790's only have a single Xfire bridge connector, and the cards are probably too large to fit all 3 on the board due to the case I use. Hardly any space between #4 PCI-e and the bottom of the case. Case is great for air flow though when its set up correctly.....but may look into something with a bottom PSU mount for the extra room in case a tripple bridge connector is made which would allow all 3 cards to run in Xfire.....would be nice to have 16x by 16x by 8x on this rig.

Will also eventually go with an 8150 CPU as well. Depending on how well this works out after tracking down the "ghost in the machine". Have ambitions of replacing the M4A79 Deluxe with another Sabertooth, or better board for my secondary gamer.

Thanks for any input you folks might have. Now that I've posted my software (primary anyway) list, it may shed some extra light on other possible problems.

Sure would like to see an "exact" spec list for bios settings from someone that at least runs the same CPU. Anybody that just happens to have the same mem, drives, would be a real bonus as well.

Thanks again for the help folks. It's greatly appreciated. thumb.gif

If I recall there will be little to no gain at all when raiding SSDs as you lose the TRIM function.
