Any of you guys that are oc'd to 3.6 or more have any issues when adding a sound card to the PCI slots?
You are so right...onboard sounds like balls my Audigy 2ZS with ASIO sounds sooo much better.

I have no issues with my soundcard in a PCI slot at 4GHz

CHOPS,

Maybe try new drivers or sell that 4500 and get a 5700.... or a 4890? Whatever you could afford.

I'm selling my less than a year old MSI 4870 OC for 120 tomorrow. And getting a 5770 for Christmas from my wife!

P.S. Got this stable in BLEND for over 2.5 hours just reset CPU DDR-PHY volts and hoping for much longer.
CPU stable @ just over 3.4GHz @ 1.425v (263 x 13)
CPU-NB @ 2630Mhz @ 1.39v
Ram @ 1753Mhz 8-8-8-30-42-1T @ 2.05v I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS!!!!????

And it's ALL mostly due to the CPU DDR_PHY Voltages adjustments!!!!
You are becoming a Guru i really want to see what you can do with that C3 945

I don't know about a "Guru" by any means... But I definitely appreciate the Compliment!

I HAD to find out just what the H.E. Doubles this Dang setting did. I tried looking it up on the net and the only thing that I found remotely intelligent was that it was tied to the IMC stability. So, low and behold I started playing with it the other night when I started my OCventure over again, I made a few attempts and finally got some results!

As far as those setting above that I stated on OC I has to change the CPU voltage to 1.425v. It registers as 1.41 in everest and the Vdroop bounces between 1.408-1.416v in CPU-Z.

But the CPU is running at about 35-36*C on water. granted it's not a hughe OC on the CPU freq. But I'm totally fine with.

I can't wait to get that C3!!!!!!!!!!

So, Mastiff, are you going to share what exactly you've found to be helpful in regards to the CPU-DDR-PHY voltage?

How much of an increase did you find to be necessary, and at what point was it needed or helpful?

How come MSI advertise it being True Blu Ray audio? I mean if you said it "sucked", then would MSI be misleading then? Just wondering.

TBA..... Still working on it....

I found that above 1600Mhz @ Stock Timings and volts 1.25v on the DDR-PHY will yield stability. It seems that for every 50Mhz of Ram frequency above 1600Mhz, I needed to add about .05v to this DDR-PHY. This is with a 1.25v on NB-Chipset and 1.35v on the CPU-NB @ 2630Mhz. Im having a bit of an issue with reboots (some bsod's, some without) @

3414Mhz CPU @ 1.425v CNB @ 2630Mhz @ 1.35 and Ram @1753Mhz @ 2.05v (2.0-2.05 Rated) after about 2 to 2.5 hours of Prime BLEND.

So, I'm not sure if I need more CPU volts, CPU-NB Volts, NB Volts, Ram Volts (like +.01v) or what. I'm trying teh same settings with DDR-PHY at 1.40v now. And I'll see how that floats.

BUT as 2+ hours at a time for each different single settings test, it will take some time to find the doorway....

I think that the Blu-Ray sounds chip will yield better results if used through the HDMI... And watching a blu-ray with Blu-Ray True HD Audio. Possibly!?

EDIT: I would assume that one would have to run the Audio though a Capable Stereo Receiver with the Blu-Ray True HD Audio Decoding as well.

AND this is question for all.

What is the BEST 5770? (i.e. Saphire, XFX, MSI, etc...)

Hallo zusammen,

da der Thread mittlerweile zu lang ist und ich ihn nicht durchlesen konnte, würde ich euch gern fragen ob ihr schon einen VMware ESXi Server mit dem Mainboard ans Laufen bekommen habt?

Ich habe es gestern probiert mit der 4.0 Version, aber er bleibt beim Laden des USB-Moduls hängen...

Hat jemand von euch schon Erfahrungen?

Opt for XFX hands down out of all...

As for audio i haven't noticed much of anything after going into control panel and tweaking the ouput quality....of course there is a possibility it may not even be outputting at those settings BUT i have set that on other systems before and instead of any sound there would be no output sound so that leaves me to believe it is working

But for the bluray quality audio you are going to need to use the optical out on the board
