I just haven't convinced myself to replace my Sabertooth Rev 1 with the UD7 although I could benefit from the additional slots since this is my server too. I am running two HD7970's, two RAID cards, a dual NIC and a tuner card. Currently the only one I cannot install is the dual NIC, but if I wanted too and wanted to add a third HD7970, I would be able to on the UD7. Plus, I like having the debug LED rather than looking for led's on the board that indicate an issue with a particular component. More of a convenience factor than anything else.

I see.

Wouldn't the Crosshair theroetically be able to achieve a higher stable overclock because ASUS boards use VRM?

Well my crosshair formula-z is on the way! One quick question, there is already an 8 pin power on the board, but I was wondering if anyone happens to be using the supplemental 4 pin power at the top of the board? If so, what are you using? A molex to 4 pin adapter? I only ask, because my corsair hx750 doesnt have an extra 4pin, just the standard 8.

Thanks

I am using it and I am using a 8 pin extension that breaks down to 4+4 works well

A good share of the members in the CHV club are running it and some do run a molex to 4/8 pin connector. Others have an extra cable that came with their PSU. I'm just like you running an HX750 and wanted to go directly from PSU to 4 pin. I ended up calling Corsair tech support and asked wat up? They we're on top of it searching and opening boxs etc. They were nice enough to make an RMA for me and currently I'm waiting on a free cable to be delivered. thumb.gif

what do you think? bad chip? if so i may just try to exchange it while i still have my 955 as a backup
Is it possible that the header on the motherboard that you have your H-60 plugged into isn't running it at full speed?

Prime 95 seems to lockup my entire system, this happens right away or 10-20 into prime, does not matter what speed or voltage I use. I read this is actually normal? How can this be correct, software does not in general cause hard locks this bad?

With and Asus moltherboard, my bus is always stuck on 200.66 MHz, the extra .66 MHz is bothering me, I am use my old Gigabyte motherboard allowing me to use round numbers bang on 200 MHz. How do I get the Asus motherboard to sit on 200 MHz FSB even?

Maybe just bad luck or maybe they don't put much into their budget models but I wont buy from Biostar ever again because of it.

Thanks for this info. Yeah, shortly after I posted that last comment about trying the BioStar, I read more comments on the web from users, and I've decide that it's just too risky, even for $110. After all, at nearly the same price, I could pick up the newly discounted Gigabyte 990FX-UD3 (it just went on sale after I returned it - lucky me!) and customize the north-bridge cooilng and still have a much better motherboard than the BioStar.

Can anyone point me to a modding forum for this? I'm sure others have decided the UD3's NB heat sink is inadequate, too. Oh, and the UD3 provides the two slot spacing between the x16 PCI-E slots for crossfire, and it posts with my 7950 card using the 7970 bios. OK, sometimes the best choice isn't completely simple, but I can't see myself buying the UD5 for $170 with a squished crossfire layout when the UD3 has a better layout, the same 8+2 power phases and is $115 ($125 - $10 MIR).

Now I'm looking for info on how the UD3 revisions differ from one another...rolleyes.gif

prime95 doesn't lock me up. It doesn't lock up at stock, or at overclocked. In fact, even if I'm fairly unstable, it won't "lock" my computer -- all that usually happens is that one thread in prime will stop. Then I tweak the voltages and retest.

Maybe your LLC isn't keeping up with the heavy load from prime95 and droop is getting you?

Got a stable 5.1 Ghz with FX8320.
Playing about 3 hours of BF3 with no BSOD, i am giong for 5.2 ver soon.

Ask "Red1776", he decreased my NB temps by 5 degrees on a spot fan mounting suggestion and tomorrow I am going to apply a better thermal paste and will likely drop another handful of degrees.

Oh and no problem on the Biostar info. After my experience with their products and even more so their tech support, I will gladly spend the rest of my life deterring fellow enthusiasts from ever purchasing one of their products. Both guys on the phone when I was trying to RMA were complete morons. They treated me like a child and assumed I had no knowledge of PC components.

One of the problems was a bad RAM slot, and considering there were only two slots on this particular motherboard, IT WAS A PROBLEM! Well he said I had bad RAM, I told him it works fine in my other board. He said I had a bad CPU, well it works fine in my other board. He asked me if I cleared the CMOS, I told him to quit messing around and issue me an RMA already, of course I cleared the CMOS, of course I tried the RAM and CPU in another board, of course I tried a different set of RAM and different CPU in the motherboard. What does he think this is? Amateur hour? Then they sent me back the same exact board without fixing it. So I had to RMA again, he tried to get me to pay for shipping, I told him I would fly to California and gut him in his sleep before I would pay shipping AGAIN!

So they sent me a supposedly new board, well now the I/O panel USB ports dont work. He says well are the drivers installed? Sigh....yes, its not software, its your hardware, and before you ask, all the devices work on my other computer...Just give me my money back...Shipping costs included.
