I could do that for M-flash, it's all I've had experience with, but am very familiar with the process.

Looks like you are having quite a bit of fun compared to some of us and such a nice system (NO PICS!?!?!?)

I am curious as to what size fans you are using on the NB...i am thinking of going with two smaller fans on each end or something like that and keeping a cleaner look compared to using some 80MM's i have on hand which would be a bit distraction on the board

That would be great! If you would do that and then post it up in this thread I could then link to it on the front page.

They were actually 2 really small fans (50 MM and less?)... I just kind of hung them on the two screws for my waterblock (very convenient actually).. I had extra places to plug em in, had no use for them otherwise - and it DEFINITELY helped..

THe NB seemed to be getting too hot, causing it to crash I think... and since it doesn't crash now, I can only guess that was the cause...I think the only crash since was the day we had that was hot here in New england - and since I've already put my AC away - it got incredibly hot in my room - and crashy crash). It was 65 here today and windows were closed - so it will be interesting to see how it looks when I get home (15 minutes).

talk to you guys tonight...

As to the dude talking about the BIOS flash (getting myself ready to be made fun of and flamed).... you all REALLY have to get over the old days when BIOS flashing was a complete danger in Windows...

I haven't DOS flashed anything in 2 years - both Asus's and MSI's Windows options worked wonders for me...

And - MSI's is online - it can't get any easier..... seriously try it.. If you guys are having issues with the board anyways, what do you have to lose (I might brick my board.....)..

To those folks... listen, you brick it trying to do BIOS update as directed in windows... and you have a solid RMA case...and like I said, it's worked fine for me - try it out!!!

LOL - forgot - I windows flashed my 4870 too... BLAM! No issues there either! (I don't think I need to with my 4890....stock BIOS is 1000/1200...

Ahh thats around the size i am wanting to use if can find some for cheap...i have my board just layed out atm with a 120mm layed horizontally on my I/O area and my CPU HSF so it splashs off the NB...guess my HSF must be absorbing some of the heat now

I haven't had a single problem due to NB heat but i did throw this fan on before i touched anything...will probably mandatory come summer and as a just in case prevention

Thanks for elaborating

OCCT is great and all, but somethings wrong with it. Every time I run it, it shuts down because one of my cores supposedly hit 200C . Which is total BS because I have made coretemp refresh every ms and it never has reported a time spike of any sort.

So for overall system stability I run prime blend for 8 hours. If it's stable for that long, it's stable enough for me.
Could my ram be at issue?

Since I get the same errors(OCCT) with no overclock.

I have 4 DDR3 sticks running at 1600. I know some CPUs have issue with ram populating all the slots.

I've heard of that limiting overclocks.

yeah I figured that out after Sending my Asus A8n342 Sli deluxe back to RMA three times. Sure enough it had the buzzing noise Every time that I moved a window (the loudest noise) or the mouse (a bit more quiet). Regardless, the both bugged the crap out me. But sure enough when I muted the PC speakers it stopped.

Shadow419!!!!!

Where you been buddy? It's nice to see you back on!

Thank for the info, both of you on the Flashy thingy! (MIB) For some reason I could use my USB to flash before going to 1.77b. I'nm not sure if it was FAT nased or just FAT. Either way I called MSI TEch and they said to flash it using the USB Format tool" and add the window 98 bootable files in proces. Then vopy the AFUD4310 and the BIOS that i want to the USB device. Set the USB port as first boot deviec and reboot her and it will flash.

Sure enough! It did! SO I'm happy for now with that. I realy don't understand why it would flash before but after flashing to BIOS 1.77b I had to reformat my USB. I went to OCZ and downloaded the 1.77b originally because they said that it (M-Flash inablity to flash bug) was fixed. Obviosly not or it was justa change in the way that it's able to flash.

So if anyone's having issues, try reformating the USB device as Described above...

I seriously think that if the IMC's on these chips (well at least the C2's revsions) are pushed to hard and/ or are pumped with to many volts, it damages them in some way.

I think that is possible to verify over time but Booting up as high as you can with Ram (keeping the OC on the CPU and CPU-NB low) and recording the Details. Aftera few weeks of doing the OC thing entirely, try it again. I thinkt hat will be the best way to tell if the IMC is weekening.

As Long as you have tested the Ram with memtest forst to ensure that it's not the ram. JMO
WHERE it driving me NUTS....Adv audio properties i dont see it
