Your video was so dark I did not notice that you had no graphics card. You need a graphics card installed or else it will not POST.

I've been seriously looking at buying this board, and I've got zero doubts about it's abilities. I'm looking at picking it up with a 955 or 965 BE within a few days.

However, regarding USB 3.0, PCI 3.0, and other technologies that are coming out in 2010:

Will this board be able to support them?
-Backwards compatabilty with PCI 3.0-->>>2.0?
-PCI expansion cards for USB 3.0?

What other technology is just on the horizon that I'd have to try to future-proof against?

1.6 and 1.7 Beta all had that problem for me....

Have a 955BE myself.
Thanks for sharing!

No it wont do PCI 3.0 (IMHO) but we have not even saturated PCI 1.0 so thats nothing to worry about.

Maybe....

The problem is that as soon as you get something it is outdated within a week. We must remember that technology doubles every 18 months.

EDIT:
I flashed to 1.6 Official and all is good! Now to see if I can get my timings lower @ 1600 and make sure I can still push 2.8 NB...

I'm about build a 955 x4 with this board. I'm curious does anyone have any benchmarks with a 955 x4 @ 4.0 running xfire 4890's?

@ eclipse

I think we should start recommending 1.6 as THE bios. It's resolved some nuances, and runs great.

I do not recommend the 1.75 Beta Bios it has HT sync errors written all over it.

@ Snowblind, most likely no, because they haven't been released and you can't just write new software and get new hardware support. However as Eclipse said, Even with multi crossfire setsup, The bus isn't even saturated Which is why HT was invented. As for USB 3, I am sure USB 3 will be backward compatible, but what you're asking for is forward compatibility, that just doesn't happen in the industry, though I am sure we'd all love future proofing.. We'll just have to wait for the T-7900FX-HolyS-69 Edition.

Is anyone using a Corsair H50 vs a Domino ALC on this board?????

First of I think you will be hard pressed to find a 955 @ 4Ghz

I think so as well but would like to hear others input on the subject(more testing) before I go and say "yeah Put 1.6 on there because the others suck"(lol)

That was what I figured he meant. Forward compatibility is quite rare if not unheard of. Altho we may get lucky and the only thing needed is a bios update or patch....(not holding m breath)

I want the T7900FX-HolyS-69 Edition!!!


Also seraphicsorcerer please go into User CP and on the left side you will see add system. Please put your info there so that we may more easily see what you are working with for future problems or possible questions on your HW.

Come join the fun!!!

Off topic: (lol)
I have noticed that a lot of you are running early bios's. We know that some issues you may be having can be due to the early bios's.(limited OC for one)

Also just to get this out there OC'ing that HT does increase performance. At least in my inital testing of wprime. Altho I must admit that it is not a lot of gain.(avg. .10 sec difference on the 32M test between 2000 and 2400)

Switching to MSI 790FX-GD70 was a good decision. I'm currently running bios 1.6 but was wondering if I should OC the HT? Here's a link of what I OC so far:
