Heres an issue i dont like. If i top mount the PSU (which i have to) there arent two sets of mounting holes, just one, so the fan HAS to point down, which blows the hot air from the PSU down over part of the cpu and mofset cooler. I could turn the PSU around, but it would then only be held up by two screws.

The way it is now, the hot air gets sucked ut by the exaust fan on the back, but still blows hot air over the other stuff. The only other thing i can think of is to turn the fans around and have them blow air over the rads and push out of the case, but then im blowing hot air from the case over the rads...

Also, i changed things up a bit, im not running 218x17 @3706mhz 3dmark06 runs until 2nd CPU test then crashes :-(

On your power supply...


Doesn't the big fan on the bottom suck in air and then the fan on the back ( By the Plug-in) Blow away from the case? Thats what it should be doing.

you my smart friend.... are correct. for that, i give you rep haha im really a big dumb **s right now.

Stock settings, arent much better at all. I put EVERYTHING stock, voltages, CPU, mult, fsb, gpus everything is stock and my idle temps are a chilling 37core, 40 CPU... terrible.

Seriously man, when it comes to getting a good chip, it's luck of the draw. Don't damn AMD. Some chips can be pushed through the roof, others can't.

This is truth

my OC is finally 3 hrs on OCCT running large--------never mind. while typing this, my comp restarted just after 3 hrs of OCCT....I'll post my settings once I get on that rig

I hate to have to run, But I have been up over 30hours lol ( had to watch a friends son...Can never sleep when i am watching someone else's kid)


Anyways I really do think something is wrong, and i'm not leaning towards the cpu.


I suggest:

try to figure out the cooling issue

Possible reformat of windows without an overclock

or possible MOBO malfunction



I will be on tomorrow sometime, feel free to give me a hollar lol
post #1568 of 2829
the mobo has already been RMA'd once, so it wont suprise me if this thing is junk. Only problem is, ASUS is the only gig in town that makes the 790FX/SB750 chipset. There is maybe one or two more, but i've read toooooo many bad reviews about them. My only other option is the M4A but man i dont have the money to dump on a new mobo :-(

The only Guarantee is that the CPU will Run at it's Default Specifications... with possibly the opportunity to go up to 3.9+ on Air.

As Far as Your 9950 goes...You were a lucky one to get one up to 3.5ghz there is alot of people stuck at 3.0ghz.

I am not sticking up for AMD....But they have no explaining to do at all...they owe us nothing.


Some OC High and reach the projected possibility of 3.9+

and some OC less

And as long as the CPU is not DOA the 940's arrive at 3.0ghz


Either way I can understand your frustration ( I have been there before) but you have a couple options which you and only you can decide what to do.
i totally agree but it seems i am just getting more and more frustrated than contented..anyways i'll see when my peltier cooling arrives..if else fails then i suck..
