Yeah. I was surprised at just how small it is. And with amd having a track record for hot CPUs they should know better than that tiny aluminum block. I will say I love that the case I have is really nice. A bit more cramped than I was expecting, but not bad. I think I just need some decent length Sata cables to make things a bit more manageable

Wow, how big of a heasink are you folks used to? The size of basketballs? tongue.gif The stock heatsink I ran on my Athlon II 445 was smaller, and I never had problems there.

Massive and utter being adjectives describing the crap, not the heatsink lachen.gif

And yes, it is ridiculously small and underperforming. I doubt it can cool anything but an A4.

i got my noctua installed and while in the bio's it didnt get much hotter than 45.

so are there any good programs to monitor these new amd cpu's? arent the new self sensors in them kinda wierd, and things dont report right sometimes? i'd like to be able to check out my temps while playing things

ah, the MSI has a program to access the bio's and things in the OS. there's a temp monitor there as also... looks like i can idle ~40 now. running prime95 for a bit to see how high that goes

Given the fact that this board will overclock (up to 4.6 GHz) with the memory set to 2400 MHz, it’s at the top of FM2 platform boards I have reviewed so far. Even at 4.8 GHz, the memory was still able to run at 2133 MHz, which matches the previous best obtained with the Sapphire A85XT. I love the fact that there are BIOS selectable memory speeds above 2133 MHz. This is the first FM2 board I have seen this feature on, and as I mentioned earlier…. It works!

Nice. smile.gif

Does anyone know if trinity apu's automatically get more video memory as they need it? i was looking through my bio's settings and couldnt find anything about it.

Just got my Asrock FM2A85X-ITX running in the BIOS only so far. Not looking good though.
Vcore in BIOS seems more stable but it is drawing 1.352-1.36. A little better than the FM2A75 at 1.352-1.368 with spikes up to 1.376.
Along with 51 temp seems like BIOS is still sucking up way to much juice for a 5700. Can't compare temp directly cause I'm using a larger Phenom II cooler now but the old one got in the high 50's on the A75.
The real weird thing now with the new A85 is that the MB temps are reported a lot higher. BIOS shows 42 when older 75 board was 31 max. Felt the NB sink and it was toasty and I would have to remove my finger after like 30 secs. Sink on the VRM was warm. I could only reach one of the dual stack MOSFETs, but if I remember it was in the same position as the hottest one on the A75. While it was very toasty I could keep my finger on it for like 10 secs. The A75 would be scolding hot almost immediately.
I would recommend that people not linger long in the BIOS unless you manually set the Vcore lower. I do think with the extra cooling and better hardware, this board will probably be fine as long as you manually adjust vcore.
However, I think ASRock still has a fundamental problem with their power delivery to the APU.

hmm thats rather bad news, it seemed to behave worst then my current asrock A75 itx. none the less i'd most likely have to buy this A85 itx for the dual link dvi

The issue is that the processor is running at turbo clocks and voltages on the BIOS. That's why it runs way cooler on Windows.

By the way, I'm running mine at 1.08V, rock solid. I'm still amazed at how little power this thing eats eek.gif

Artikbot, can you clarify? Would it be the normal voltage to the processor if it's running in turbo core?

We still need the power measurements.
