post #281 of 774
Heya, if you have a working MB that isn't experiencing the crazy power draws that the bad boards do, is it possible you have a newer board revision?
The one that I had die on me (no fire at least) was:
FM2A-75
M-ITX
P1.10-15B

FM2A75M-ITX
Rev G/A 1.01

If everyone can check there working boards that don't overheat in the BIOS and then let me know if the board rev numbers match up or not?
I won't touch this board again until I'm confident it is working right but I'm getting desperate as I need to build this thing and I can't find anything else available.
Thanks

LOL, the AC5 probably would work fine but you would have to clamp it down until it sets (that takes like a month according to AC's documentation).
If I end up trying another one of these boards can you send me a slice of that heatsink? I don't think the aftermarket solutions will fit in that narrow space and I can't make one myself.
The larger mofsets right above get really hot too, are you planning on making something for them? I also noticed the 1st capacitor next to the 4 pin PSU plug gets really hot, I was thinking about gluing a fin to the top of it or something.

Yeah, I've thought about it but they've been out of stock. I don't really like the boad though any way. Really want to be able to undervolt and like the features and BIOS settings better on the Asrock. I have also been trying to wait for the Zotac A75 board but they've not shown up yet. Why they even bothered with an A55 board I'll never know? Just crazy!

Ok so my board has been a bit flakey recently, sometimes crashing. Exhausted air has been very hot when doing light duties. Turns out the board was putting 1.535 volts through the cpu (according to HWMonitor) at times for no apparent reason, got so hot in the case the motherboard couldn't see the SSD with windows on when trying to reboot after locking up. The cpu heatsink was very hot to the touch, along with the enzotech mosfet sinks I put on (very glad I did). The problem seems to be with turbo, I don't have any issues with it disabled, but despite the board saying max cpu voltage for turbo is 1.435 it puts 0.1V over that in, ***? Is this bad turbo implementation, power management or *****ty BIOS (1.8)?

Overall a crappy motherboard.

Mine did the same, to the point that it killed itself due to overheating.

I don't know what the crap did ASRock use as MOSFETs, because Gigabyte also uses DrMOS technology and theirs are barely warm to touch when gaming on the computer.

Well Asrock has accepted to RMA the board and NCIX will replace my video card. My processor and ram were fine, tested them in my friends pc. The Zotac a75 rev b board is for sale on ebay. I had already posted that overclocking wouldnt be an option on that board though. Overclocking programs in windows need to have the proper ICS to overclock. If its not in their list then you cant do it.

So whats the major differences between the A55 and A75 zotac itx boards? anything major that a A10-5700 would care about?

I've been wanting to build a new mini itx machine for a while now, and im getting anxious, but have been turned away from the current motherboards available.

Also, any word on the gigabyte FM2 itx board?

A55 and A75 differences have been mentioned already. only difference youd really care is 3gb/s vs 6gb/s sata speed and no USB3 support for a55. Pretty much sums it up.

As for the FSB & HT clocks... If HT is the link then what's the FSB? Wasn't the FSB the CPU-memory link in older platforms? I'm confused with this.
If a board writes something along the lines of:
"Memory support: DDR3-1600/1866/2133(O.C) ..."
then, to my understanding, their BIOS includes memory clock adjustments for sure, correct?

Don't know if an "un-overclockable" board can be overclocked in software.

The FSB was the CPU-memory link many years ago. We retain a "FSB" that is to my knowledge really just a reference clock now. Consider that FSB never went over about 200MHz, and memory busses now run 1600-2400MHz.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HyperTransport#Front-side_bus_replacement

Now, this gets even more confusing when you learn that APUs don't use HyperTransport anymore! Anyway, the point is changing the "FSB" setting will change memory speed, but that's not really the right way to change memory speed.

Yes, if they say the board supports 2133(O.C.) it supports memory clock adjustment.

If you don't plan on using a good SSD, you don't even need to worry about the SATA link.
