Congratulations, it seems you have a very nice chip.
thanks thats was just quick and dirty run i thought i would try and it took it with ease
need to redo my loop and with try higher i have not even tried higher then 1.55vcore yet lol
question to the watercooling guys will using 2 xspc x2o 750 in one loop be ok or would it be better to have 2 loops
i have a 2nd doing nothing so wont cost anything and the one aint enough really and dont really wanna buy a new pump and a new res if i can help it
You should not need to use two 750 pumps. A single 750 is enough for dual GPU + cpu + dual radiator loop. More if you overvolt it like I did.

Don't forget Gigabyte 990FX-UD3 rev.4

You remember The Stilth, Will you?
"1. Asus Crosshair V Formula or (-Z)
2. Asus Sabertooth 990FX or R2.0 or (Gen3)
3. Asrock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional
4. Asrock 990FX Extreme9
4. Asus M5A97 or M5A99 PRO / EVO R2.0
5. Asus M5A97 or M5A99 PRO / EVO
6. Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 Rev4.0
7. Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 Rev3.0
8. Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 Rev3.0"
But, he add this
"FX -9 series processors do not even putting a stick to a standard other than the motherboard Crosshair V Formula (or Z ) . Although other motherboards are nominally supported by both the general reliability and stability due to c5f ( -Z ) is the only reasonable option. Nor are the other motherboards are sure to be a piece ablaze , but throtting occur with high probability stock a larger load."
It might be recommended by a famous name. But that does not stop the fact that the Rev. 4 is hard locked in the BIOS to throttle on power draw. So that means even if you keep temps low on the rev4 it will still throttle when you hit the 200w mark. Which is around the 4.8GHz zone. It's still a good board. It won't blow up in your face when you start cranking it. But it isn't a 5 contender. From what I have seen in the club from other people and from my own XP the list is ACTUALLY like THIS.
1. Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z (5Ghz capable)
2. Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 (only board for Quad SLI CrossfireX) (5GHz capable) (not sure of the revisions)
3. MSI 990FXA-GD80 (5GHz capable)
4. Asus Sabertooth (5GHz capable)
5. Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 (5GHz Capable) (not sure of revisions)
6. Asus M5A99FX Pro/EVO R2.0 and M5A97 EVO R2.0 (Hard to reach 5GHz., 4.8GHz Capable)
7. Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 (Rev 1.1 is 5GHz capable from what I have seen. Others are not really. Rev 4. Hardlocked in BIOS to throttle on powerdraw. 4.8GHz Capable)
8. Gigabyte 970-UD3P (Same VRM's as UD3 rev4.0 4.8 capable.)
9. Asus M5A99X Rev 1.0 (4.8 capable.)
10. Sapphire Pure Black. (Good on paper but finniky from what I have heard)
11. ASRock 990FX Extreme9 (4.8GHz Capable but very hard to reach. These boards seem to blow up.)
12. AsRock 990FX Fatal1ty Professional (Similar VRM's to Extreme 9 4.8 is a hard ask)
13. MSI 990FXA-GD65 (4.7GHz capable under experienced hands)
14. All other boards.
Worth a mention. I'm not sure if it is a Biostar or an ECS 990FX board that has a VERY robust 4+1 power system.
I also don't pass this off as gospel. But from what I have observed over time and also my experience with Asus and MSI boards.Edited by Alastair - 10/29/14 at 1:00am
