No, but take a look at the shape of the heatsinks Bubba, they are designed for the stock AMD heatsink which would blow air over them. With the badges on they impede straight down air flow across the heatsink, as well as trap hot air under them.

However as I've stated I am live in a desert with extremely high ambient temps due to the lack of A/C I run the system with massive undervolts across the whole system.


However, it is stupid easy to remove the badges, as they are just sticky taped on.

Good point. When you pulled them off did it do any damage to the badges that would show during the RMA process?

Sounds like a good idea taking those badges/covers off of the heatsinks on the ASRock. Am I correct in thinking you have 1 or 2 fans in the side panel that blow straight onto the mobo?

I have zero side fans.

2x140 front intake
2x120 top intake
1x140 rear exhaust

I have good turbulant airflow inside the case around the chipset, both it and the VRM remain fairly cool. When I get cooler weather I will setup two 80mm's one on the VRM one on the Chipset to push some high OC's

how to watch those vram or how those things called what is under the heatsink i have ud5 and can i watch those temps somehow?
post #5246 of 8112
Ah I see. I have a single 120 on the side that blows in, and two 120s in front blowing in, two 80s in the back blowing out. Along with the 140 in the PSU and the 90s in the dual 6790s I get great flow. This case wont work with watercooling worth a darn though. I would have to cut the top. The dual 80 setup in the back wont let me do it that way and out the side is a serious pain. I dont htink I want to cut this case, it is pristine. I got it for $25 along with aa ASUS P4C800 / Pentium 3.1 Ghz smile.gif The P4 is out in the workshop as my jukebox. Was toying with making an open test bench type of case/holder for it today and screw the sucker to the wall to free up some bench space.

has anyone ever heard of the ibm z196 processor, i was just recently reading about it now u may ask why well its simple i was wondering of amd has adopted some of ibms techniques i might be wrong about this but i did find it interesting that for ibms servers they use 45nm would be somthing if ibm was helping amd

I could be wrong but from the description I just read it looks like IBM went the same route as AMD and based the design off of the old "clustered integer core" design from DEC back in 96 and their Alpha Risc CPU's. Except IBM built theirs on steroids. tongue.gif I would imagine you'll see these in supercomputers and high end servers running unix or linux.

clustered integer core that exactly what i was getting at i wonder how fx8150 would perform under W 8 server has anyone tryed it i have tested on w8 release preview and did see better performance but i wonder how it would perform under w8 server windows server2012

another thing i dont know if anyone has tryed this also but for me with 16gb of low profile samsung ram runing them in GANGED mode works better than unganged according to maxmem


heres 9-9-9-24-1t @1866 1.47v 4.5ghz 2600mhz cpu/nb 2000mhz HTL (fsb 200) (multi 22.5) Ram is Ganged Mode

488

484

Note i did these earlyer well yesterday seeing as how its now 1:30 am for me

I wonder if Gigabyte is already aware of this issue.

"1.Add VRM MOS protection"

From the F7 BIOS

RMA in order?
