I deleted my antivirus, thinking they're the ones to blame most often. Nope. Reinstalled MB drivers. Nada. USB3 drivers? Negative.
Some BIOS setting? Maybe but I have no way to tell.

Oh well I hope the next BIOS release will fix it.

Hmmmm.thinking.gif
Edit to add: Looking at the box content pictures it looks like they do include the 3 slot CF bridge. I held A piece of paper up and marked the length and it is longer than 3 slot widths.

Edit again- It is labeled "SLI bridge". So is there no CF bridge included , only an SLI?
And again: It looks like there is only an SLI cable in the box.

Hmm. And here I was all set on a Sabertooth. If I can get a CHV for about the same price that would be better yes?

if they don't let me Know you can have mine

All my Sabertooth boards came with both bridges, the crossfire 1 and 3 is only a standard bridge anyway and 1 and 3 are x16 x16 not x16 x8.

Mine only came with a sli bridge. Weird.

I took a look at my M5A97 EVO, and to my surprise it actually uses a 3 slot length CF bridge, So I have a CF cable that will work on either a 2 slot difference (#1+#3) or 3 slot difference (#1+#4) Crossfire layout. I had completely forgotten that this board uses a 3 slot layout for the CF configuration. I actually think that is better than 2 slot spacing because you get a bit of airspace between your GPUs. From what I can gather online, it appears that #1 slot is 16x always, #3(black) is 4x always, and #4(tan) is switchable between 16x and 8x. So 3 slot CF layout is what you would want ideally.

I really didn't think I would be getting one of the top-end mobos. But now I need to make a second rig, so it means getting a cheap mobo for it and leaving this rig intact OR upgrading this rig with a better mobo and using this M5 for the other build. Since ST and CHV are both available refurbished this far along after release, I can get either one for about what I paid for this M5 last year. The CHV is listing as sold out ATM on Geeks though, so my ST or CHV decision may have been made for me.

Whats up everybody. I have the 8120 and I bought the Noctuna NH-14 cooler. I have tried tweaking many of the BIOS settings but can't seem to get past 4.4ghz no matter what I do. Have any of you been able to break this barrier with a similar setup?

Please add me to the list

I just purchased this board to be my first attempt at OC (please forgive anything STUPID I might ask) and after looking at several forums it seems everyone worth talking to is in here

Edit reading through the posts I learned my OCN name needs to be in my validation. If someone could tell me where to change this I will repost it at work tomorrow
