Oh, and someone mentioned a concern with the H100 or H80 mounted to the motherboard. If you followed the directions of tightening the mounts in the correct order and didn't overdo it you should be fine. For some reason a lot of users like to torque down those things like crazy and do them one at a time all the way. I don't get it.

ppl don't always torque them down hard. People who build their computers always like to make sure they contact the cpu and heatsink which is why ppl always double check they are screwed down. You only need to do an X shape to get a full flat contact with the CPU.

Check to see if the board is setting the BCLK above 100. Before I chucked this board It would randomly set it at 41 multi x 103 BCLK lol.

When I installed my I7 last weekend, I nearly freaked out because one of the hex-nuts was coming loose from the back-plate. I had to re-tighten it whilst trying to hold the block from resting on the cpu or ram.

I'm not sure why, but those hex bolts are always coming loose on mine.

I double checked the tightness last night and it seems good. I did try and see if the block shifted at all if I pushed it at all. It moved a little bit and my temps changed a little bit on one of the cores haha.


The i7 at stock usually idles at 25-27c - 35-39c When it boots initially I've seen some cores hit 17-19c smile.gif But it then begins to heat up.

Put nail polish on the bolt threads and reinstall it. The nail polish acts as a low-level loc-tite.

If I already have low-level loc-tite, what should I do with the nail polish? tongue.gifparty.gif

dude, do you own a H100i or H80i ?
they dont like the sabertooth, i have had to make my own mounting screws and stuff, the stock ones dont fit properly ! they dont screw down hard leaving the block only making 60% contact.
had to reseat mine countless of times.

Well, I believe I have finally isolated the source of all my headaches: My BluRay DVD player appears to be the issue. While the BluRay player always worked flawlessly once I have booted into Windows, disconnecting it's SATA connection seems to have eliminated the random freezing before the BIOS Status screen. I've rebooted a couple of dozen times now, and I haven't seen the freezing since.

I wish I didn't misread the Sabertooth User Guide for which fault LED was lit (BOOT_DEVICE instead of CPU). It would have steered me in the right direction sooner. I had double checked that earlier, too.

Cheers,

AzJazz

Finally! Some resolution to this epic battle!

Well, have you tried replacing the SATA cable to see if that makes a difference? If there a firmware update for the drive?
