Top card is always primary. Why do you want the second card to be primary?


Just to ease the load on the top card...I'm running two Lightning 780's on air for now...is it even possible?

Nope, not possible. Just gotta deal with the heat or get out of the kitchen (or buy waterblocks)

Should read this

As an example, a CPU is perfectly stable at 1.25V using a manual voltage (static), if Adaptive or Offset Mode is used instead, it is impossible to lock the core voltage when running software that contains AVX instruction sets – stress tests such as AIDA and Prime contain AVX instruction sets. When the AVX instructions are detected by the PCU, the core voltage will be ramped an additional ~0.1V over your target voltage – so 1.25V will become ~1.35V under AVX load. If you intend to run heavy load AVX software, we recommend using Manual Vcore, NOT Adaptive or Offset Mode.

I don 't recall anything about a 1:1 ratio ....I do recall a statement saying that a cache setting more than 3 below ya multiplier can affect performance in certain programs..... that I have personally confirmed as have others.

Run RoG Real Bench specifically the image editing portion..... the image editing portion clearly confirms this. The procedure I used was .... Run it once and discard results, then run 3 more times and average the 3 results.

45 CPU Multiplier / 45 Cache Ratio = 119,452
45 CPU Multiplier / 42 Cache Ratio = 119,432 (0.02% drop)
45 CPU Multiplier / 39 Cache Ratio = 116,750 (2.31% drop)

Well the only description for 1203 is "stability improvements" but it has had a drastic change on voltages with them climbing much higher under adaptive. As to the 40 Q-Code ..... shud be a table in ya manual.

Add me in please


post #1326 of 2766
Ok, so I set the voltage to manual @ 1.275 with the multi at 44. AIDA stress ran for an hour and a half with max temp @ 68c. I'm good with that.

Agreed. You can probably look at a few of my earlier posts to see the nightmare and headaches I had with it... Went back to my Sounblaster Zx after a few days of fussing with the onboard...

-sigh- maybe one day I'll try it again and see...

Any who on another note...

Did you guys check this out?

http://www.guru3d.com/news_story/be_quiet_dark_rock_pro_3_hsf.html

Never heard of them, but the 2 was apparently a cooling beast... wondering If I should swap the H100i out for this guy and retry my OC *Not loving the H100i as I'd hopped I would... *
Do it! Then you'll never have to worry about this happening. smile.gif

I have Asus Maximus VI Hero since last November and I have already replaced a CMOS battery and the current one is down to 3V, my issue is that Time stops incrementing in BIOS and while using the PC the time lags behind (like by hours).
Then I Replace CMOS battery and everything is fine again.

I know about computers and generally CMOS batteries last for years not months... Also if I might add my CPU fans don`t start up unless I manually set them to over 90% from bios. For me this is not normal.

MB came with BIOS version: 0804/0903 (not sure)
Current BIOS Version: 1102 (last month updated)
Will update to new one as well.

Am I being too hasty if I RMA?

Thanks for your time!

Let me find the thread and I'll post back. I have dealt with this issue my friend and this has worked for a month now...

0. Uninstall the Intel MEI driver.
1. Update to a newer BIOS, turn PC off.
2. With PSU plugged in and powered on, jumper the CMOS. Leave battery alone.
3. Install the Intel MEI driver from Asus website.

This resets something that does not get reset when jumpering w/ PSU off or removing the battery. So far I've gone a month or more with the time AOK using this method.

FYI, have RMAd and had the same issue.
