ya i have an azza solano and I'm just thinking about cutting out a hole in the mobo tray as when I went to the store the precut holes are just 2'x2' squares, not remotely enough to do crap with an amd backplate.

Not sure but figure cutting out like a 4" x 4 " will be enough for anything and give it a little air to breathe.

There's enough room to get the H50 backplate in there through the cut out.

1503 still limits CPU-NB to 2800. Lame.

ARRgghh, i meant to test it last night to see if the voltages are still locked at a max of 1.55. The last BIOS update gave me .125 v more headroom(1301 -> 1403).

Well my RAM is installed and running sweetly, currently running with 7-7-7-20 but will tighten the timings tonight if i have time. win 7 x64 installed.

The new fans are sooo super quiet its wonderful. wow im loving it. oh and my Logitech G500, well lets just say that its the best mouse ive ever used by far... loving it too. so much so that i have carted it to work today to use it there to cart back home tonight . seriously loving it.

Admittedly, even after a year of OCing my M4A79T Deluxe, I still call noob on myself, . I understand that the Crosshair III Formula is not the same as the M4A79T Deluxe as it is more of a tweaker/OCer mobo. Trying to set the HT Link is driving me NUCKING FUTS. In the BIOS, I set the FSB to 215-216 and CPU-Z shows 1935-1944 for the HT Link and NB Freq (and yes, I set the HT Link manually to 2365 or so, up to 2800), ditto for the NB Frequency. Set it all back to 200 and viola those guys go up to 2000-2600 depending on what I set them to.

I gotta be doing something wrong is all I can think. Right now, I've got the FSB set at default (200MHz). (see below image please)

Just a quick, funny short story: I complete my (re)build the other day, power up and nothing, nada, zip, zero. After about 15min of cursing, swearing and punching the air thinking I had gotten another bad mobo, I calm down and do a physical inspection. Turns out, I forgot to plug in the 8pin cpu power. STUPID NOOB MISTAKE, ROFL.

EDIT: Just running a short, quick stability test atm, so far so good. More in depth test tomorrow.

EDIT: 1 hour Prime95 x64, passed, 0 errors. The first real test will come tomorrow, bwahaha

i already have the 720be from my old rig, was able to push to 3.4ghz stable on my ECS board..cant wait how the CH III push this chip to its maximum. Im guessing somewhere around 3.8 to 4ghz.

Normally it does affect your overclock. im no expert, but from what i know is that it underclocks the processor and lowers the voltages for it to run "cool and quiet".

People usually disable this feature.
