Does anybody feel like uploading there settings?
its actually 4+4 pin, its optional, someboards supports all 8pins, and others takes 4. so it psu comes with a 8pin (4+4) incase a board will require all 8. if your board only takes a 4pin, then 4 is all youd need.

negative. my board uses all 8pins. it really just depends on the power phase design. my boards the highest tier from giga's offerings in the am2+ field will - 790X boards.

Hmm. I like your thinking. As it seems NB speeds are much more important than HT, we could start again. I would say only about 30 of our club are Active. Im fine with restarting and redoing it.

Please can I have everyone's options on this please, new or old users,I want to know your thoughts.

Thank you.

That's not really accurate nor is it answering my question

I have a feeling my computer can't handle higher that 3.2 due to power issues. Imaging that at 3.4GHz @ 1.4v a Phenom II X3 720 will be pulling 110W thats 9.5amps down 2 thin wires (as the other two wires are COMs) anybody agree?

Your motherboard is cheaper than mine and has bad heatpipe layout so don't be telling me my motherboards cheap

your board/ psu handles those volts just fine. your board is the what? highest tier in the am2+ boards from asus? its fine.

@will, it looks like its more of "the other way" around, 4pins are a thing in the past, old, lower grade boards NOWADAYS will use, 8pins are more modern, higher grade to be used atm.

What is the purpose of 8-pin vs 4-pin then? I think if you guys have high overclocks and have a 8-pin input, and I have poor overclocks on a 4-pin system that must be the problem? I haven't seen a chip that overclocks as poorly as mine.

your board is one of the highest OC'ing boards for these chips..it was never a poor performer. you just probably have a bad chip. RMA the chip and get a replacement.

How could I RMA it, there isn't anything wrong with it (as far as AMD are concerned) it'll run smooth at 2.8GHz and upto 3.2GHz but won't go any higher.
