I'm not running the board in my sig-rig, but it is powering my secondary rig. And I never liked the onboard sound quality on it. Sometimes it would even crackle lightly, or simply not get enough volume. It was a night and day difference once I put in an Audigy 2 ZS.

And yeah, the drivers don't really help much, if at all. A shame really. You'd imagine they'd use better quality onboard audio on such a high-end board. But you're probably better off using a dedicated card anyways.

I know that this has been covered to a point in this thread, but for all that have a PHII running on this board could you list your speed currently running at and your current idle/load temps...

PHII 940BE @ 3.6
Idle: 46C
Load: 58C

Using Thermaltake Orb with OCZ Freeze. Just seems high temp wise from what I have been seeing. On the 7 series boards I see people idle at about 35C average on air cool. Load maybe hitting 52C.

Thanks!

The mobo manufacturers have stepped up on the onboard sound. When the M2N series was out, they were still tweaking that feature, and onboard sound was still notoriously bad for all mobos.
Some high-end mobos now come with dedicated sound cards

Well it looks like my machine has given me the perfect excuse to go buy some 1066 sticks... my existing ram has decided to become a random number generator instead of a safe place to store stuff!!

Prime95 was the first to spot inconsistencies and later confirmed by MemTest. Plus some games have started locking up... Don't know what could have happened, just started a couple of days ago while stress testing the new 720BE. CPU Burn-in v1.01 with error checking seems happy at least. I wonder if I pushed it too far when I took it to DDR900 a few days back????

Well once my big old Reserator has warmed up (which can take about 3 hours!!) mine is idling @ 43*c (mobo @ 42*c) and loading out @ 55*c. PHII x3 720BE @ stock 2.8GHz.

I've also had it running @ 3.2GHz for a short while and temps were pretty much the same.

I'm gonna give OCing a miss for a while until I sort out my ram problems...

BTW - according to AMD the PHII x3 720BE has a maximum case temperature of 73*c so assuming your x4 940 is the same I wouldn't worry about those numbers. In any case you could always open the window - that reduces temps loads.

That is the max safe temp eh. I heard lower, but that is good news! I was a little worried about the temps I am getting. I have a good cooler and the OCZ Freeze did help a tad. PLENTY of fans...

You mean like a riser card? Kinda like the WiFi riser that's attached to the M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition?

Aye, tis of the few sullen gimmicks with which the board were sent, aye... arrrgh. :turd:

So has anyone heard of "PCI sharing"? Apparently our board has it, but the manual is confusing. Page 2-16 and 2-17 (pages 16 and 17 in PDF) as seen here: http://www.freestyle.dk/xtreme/pdf/a...32-sli_dlx.pdf. What gives?!

I think that is exactely what he is saying. They are just like the riser for the wifi adaptor card. I have a DFI board NF4 SLI DR & antoher Expert board they both have risercards w/sound built into them. I think DFI was the pioneer of this. And from what I can tell the sound quality is remarkably good. Still it is not gonna compare to any X-FI card. The reason for doing this is to eliminate the EMI that could cause static crackling etc when the sound chip is placed physically on the mobo.

Hope that answers your question.

Phenom II 940 @ 3.5 GHz (1.360V according to CPU-Z)
Idle temp @ 1.0GHz = 35-37C
Load temp @ 3.5 GHz = 52C

I have been playing around with a new cpu cooler. It's the Coolit System Pure. I know it's a cheap water cooling system, but hey for $60 CAD i felt like experimenting So I slapped on an extra fan to make it push/pull configuration and it defiantly helped. My old AC Freezer 64 wasn't cutting it as much. Also I am using OCZ Freeze for thermal paste.

Lower Temps does help for overclocking. I can run 3.6 GHz at my same voltages (not stable though) before it just BSOD as soon as I try. Now I can get 2min of stress test out of it
