Nope, you'll need a supported AM3 cpu or BIOS revision 1003 or newer. I bought my mobo from newegg in mid December and it came with 1003 on it so I doubt you'll have a problem.

Howdy,

Just blew up an MSI 790FX-GD70 so it's now Asus turn to Impress me.

Curious, am I going to be the only one here to use Thermal Electric Cooling on this bad boy?

If I'm not I would sure love to hear some details of there trials.

I will do my best to post some of my details for those whom are interested.

Cheers.

Mine simply does not work. The only possible speaker configurations in the Windows Sound panel are PCM Stereo.

I have tried the Toslink setup and the 6-ch analog. On both setups, i can successfully test DTS and Dolby Digital (Windows Sound panel) to produce 5.1 output, but both of those formats are encoded and thusly decoded at the receiver (Z5000). The Creative panel does not successfully test ANY format.

I have tried installing under different several different compatibility modes, none seem to work. I'll probably stick with the Audigy 4 until I decide to pony up the green for a real X-Fi card.

I think I know what you are talking about. For me in the creative console I can switch it to 5.1 surround and add eax effects to my home theatre but when testing it won't make a sound individualy on the components.
So basically I use the console to switch between my headphones for vent while allowing my game to run through my home theatre at same time.
So if I'm understanding you correctly using the toslink its my denon receiver giving me 5.1 not the actual card?

It seems like my one question got lost so here it is again...
Can we adjust the fsb:dram ratio on this board or is it always automatically done compared to your fsb, nb, multiplier settings? I ask cause I notice when messing around with the fsb it automatically tries to adjust the memory mhz (im assuming to keep it at an even ratio since I read that supposedly amd works best when even ratios are used for memory , i.e 1:1,2:2,3:3 etc) and for the life of me I cant figure out the exact relationship of these lol

alright back to reality went back down to 3.8 not messing with fsb just multiplier and ran prime95 for little over 2.5 hours, thats all the time I had for now prob will do a sandra burn in tonight. THink this is as far as my stock hs will handle temps seem to top out at 64c and float around 61-63 in the blend test. I cant get it to go higher than 52 in real world (my use) conditions.

I do like pc probe but anyone else notices that when its up and you open diff applications certain volts will spike on pc probe? you get a warning for a sec or three than it all goes back to normal.....

lol temps dropped on cpu almost 20 degrees just in the time it took me to shut down prime95 and take screenshot and clip it to paint.
