I have to admit that the board looks really good guys. Now I know that doesn't account for much, but the 8300 is arriving today, and I will begin assembly tonight thumb.gif
We shall see just how good this "new" board is in the coming days! I'd like to think that an early 2015 released AM3+ motherboard should be highly refined, but at $76 after incentives, who knows?

I'd add though, that I may not have the cooling to push the board to it's limits, but I'll do my best to give you guys a spot on review of how the voltage does at the highest attainable settings within thermal margins.

I will also test the limits of bus clock, etc.....

WISH ME LUCK redface.gif

Pics of the board?

Would like to see it smile.gif

Enjoy...i trust Asrock.

Your cooling?

Dont forget to place a small fan at the vrm heatsink top (AMD stock cooler fan will do the job...).

It definitely has a quality feel to it though. And I've been through every brand of motherboard there is, so I know when I'm getting total crap, completely off the charts high end, and somewhere in the middle. I would rate the fit and finish of this piece to be somewhere between the middle, and the extreme high end, which is where it seems to be targeted anyways.

The thickest board I ever had was an MSI Platinum 939 board, and that thing was top notch roughly 10 years ago, and the thinnest board I have ever seen was an XFX (can't recall which) that was warped right out of the box.

The board I just received looks to be right in line with my current Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5. I'll take side by side table top pics of the two PCB's beside each other late for a better comparison.

The red on the heatsinks is actually a metallic red, almost sparkly but not quite.
I am highly considering switching from blue to red LED fans in my case, and painting the yellow shroud on my tri-x with a metallic red, for something a little more aesthetically pleasing.....

I will also add, that the board is nested in a fairly dense foam tray, not just sitting in the box.
That entire foam tray in inserted into a large static bag, and that sits down on a second layer in the bottom of the box, not directly on the bottom. I think the package is pretty decent on this one.

I'll have some really nice quality pics for you guys later (my LG G3 phone takes better pics than my 16MP sony cybershot kookoo.gif )

Tasm,

I'm using an older clc cooler made by ALC called the Vantage.

It's actually really cool in the sense that it has an LCD display with water temps, fan speed, etc. and you can also change the color from red, green, blue, and purple.

As far performance though, with my push pull fan setup, on extreme mode (which will idle at 1100 RPM, and get up to 2250~ in an effort to cool the chip) it performs about as well as an H70.

Nothing stellar at all, but also better than air.

I run my 1090T with 1.5v vcore, and 1.4v CPU-NB and it stays around 56c tops on full load fft blends, and never breaks 50c on 80% load gaming.
Luckily with the vishera, I'll have an extra 10 degrees of thermal margin (70c vs 60c), but I imagine cooling will limit my OC way before this board does. Of course that's barring that the board's power phase is as good as it is advertised to be.

I lapped my EK block, though my chip is delidded so there are much less contact area and less mounting preassure than I had when the IHS was in place.
Don't think its hurting cooling performance now...

You told me last time i asked, i forgot biggrin.gif

You shouldnt have any problem ramping the chip to 4.5/4.6.

Yeah I'm pretty sure 4.6 will be a "gimme"....
4.8 should be accomplishable IF the chip can get there on 1.45v or less.
I think anything past that voltage will over saturate the cooler, and the radiator won't be able to dissipate the heat.

I get a creeping temp effect now even, where things run around 54c on max load, and then after an hour or so, you begin to see the water temp hit 40c in the radiator, then the fans go nuts, and the temp will bounce between 56c and 58c with spikes as it builds heat, and then bleeds it off again at the high fan speeds.

Then again, I haven't done a new TIM application or a radiator cleaning in 6 months!!! eek.gif

I remember when my max temps were 50c under extreme load, lol.

Maybe, and I mean maybe, if I can keep this vishera around 65c, we can get something a little more serious going. At least for benching anyways. tongue.gif

I thought you weren't supposed to lap the heatsinks?

Source.

AIo =/= water blocks.

umbrella statements are bad..

according to your source it is improper to lap a bowed out AIO cooler.

fact of the matter actually is, that you don't get it flat. (source, micron microscope) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The point of lapping is to get copper to copper contact, which has a better heat transfer rate then any other combination reasonable used in computers (yes gold will be a better thermal conductor but it is also exceeding expensive)

the little micro grooves created by the sanding increases surface area for you TIM to get to.. resulting in greater thermal transfers

High quality blocks from EK or whoever the top brands are should not need this.

if you have a delidded chip, you best be buying a delidded block kit.
