1090t AMD build - Page 4

post #31 of 40
Thread Starter 
Sigh frown.gif Even with 4 fans in a row blowing directly over the heatsinked VRMs, they still cannot handle a clock more than 225 on the reference clock at 16 multiplier. Sooooo I went and ordered a Crosshair V. I'll let you know when it arrives and is up and running. Hopefully that should put an end to this VRM business.

Also, darn you guys for getting me hooked on OCing! It's worse than crack I tell you! I need my fix!

Ouch, so it throttles at 3.6Ghz? Never thought it'd remain that bad. This is a hexa-core though, hexa-cores usually are really demanding on the VRMs and work best with the higher end 6+2 to 8+2 phase. Many motherboards with VRM issues, that aren't known for failing on the x4, will most certainly blow if you pair them with an x6 and overclock too far.

Did you heatsink the small pairs of driver chips? (to the left of the main ones). I'm not too sure if this is necessary (don't think so actually) but if you have any spares it might help
I don't believe any of the case fans are actually blowing directly onto them though.... i.e. unless you place a really small fan in an area that is directly over the VRMs

The ch-V board should hopefully be in tomorrow. Yeah 4+ 1 is definitely insufficient to handle this chip. Guess that's my fault for trying to cheap out on a motherboard. Guess I'll sell it to someone not looking to run an overclocked thuban lol. either way I'll be glad for the 8+ 2 power phase and digi vrm

Okay, just got the Crosshair V up and running! It's such a beautiful motherboard The red and black meshes perfectly with my RAM too. Quick question: the motherboard has an 8-pin 12v connector and another 4v connector located to the right, above the memory. From the information I could find online, this second connector seems to make for cleaner power and better amperage? I ordered a 1000w Silverstone PSU with a second 4-pin 12v atx connector. Until then, I wanted to know can I still overclock decently without the added juice?

Why...Why would you buy a 1KW PSU on a single CPU/GPU setup?
You don't need that extra 4 pin power for anything.

but there is also an additional 4-pin CPU power connector as well. This extra 4-pin connector is specifically for use when overclocking the still unreleased 8-core AMD processors.

I mean I do plan on eventually upgrading to a bulldozer and or a second gpu. I thought I read that the second 4 pin connector was required, but apparently I misread. I canceled the 1k one until further notice

Even with a second GPU, there's no need for 1KW. If you had 3 GPUs then 1KW would be fine but it really is a big waste of money unless you get a really nice deal on it.

And chances are pretty high that you won't need an 8 core Bulldozer unless you do a lot of rendering or something else I can't think of that is greatly benefited by more cores, the 4 core should suit you, and most people, just fine. Think of the 1090t/955. They perform the same in games because most, if not all, games aren't made to utilize all those cores.

Actually the Corsair 650W should come with that 8-pin EPS connector.
EDIT: Oh you mean the 4-pin connector in addition to the EPS. A molex to 4-pin CPU converter might work out just the same for less cost.

lol...you got the bug bad!!...that 1000 w psu is overkill for sure, but at least you'll never have to worry about not having enough...up side is if you do crossfire later you'll have plenty of connectors. and those extra mobo inputs your talking about will come with that psu also...heck your ready for watercooling next!smile.gif and yes even without the extra connectors on mobo you can overclock they are just to keep voltage a little more stable. This is OCN afterall..overkill and uneeded computing power is what it's all about!
ONE LAST EDIT: that sure is a pretty mobo!
