Different Chipsets. Your MB may not have a club started yet. You can look into starting one. There are requirements and guidlines though.


Update on the Memory OCventure.

After running stable for well over 7 hours I decided to move up another 25Mhz.

As of right now I'm running Prime95 BLEND mode Stable @ 1775MHz 8-8-8-30-42-1T. I made a quite a few adjustments and I'm @

-CPU 3458MHz (266 x13) @ 1.475v Playing it safe there. Could go lower.
-CPU-NB 2660MHz (266 x10) @ 1.445v
-Ram 1775Mhz @ 2.07v
-CPU DDR-PHY @ 1.50v
-NB @ 1.25v
-HT Link @ 1.25
-SB @ 1.25v

So one more 25Mhz Jump and I'll be 1800Mhz. Hopefully stable with some more tweaking.

Also I was reading about how you are supposed to be able to change what the LCD displays. Have you heard of this? I have sense lost the webpage and cant seem to find it anywhere. This was when this board just came out tho so who knows.
I have read that when the board originally came out it read the NB temps instead of the CPU temps and after a few bios revisions it read the CPU temps

If you roll back your bios im sure it would change...

As for coretemp i just sit it to add 3C to its temps so it is always either the same as the boards readout or 1C higher

OKAY, Suggestion.

E,

How would you feel about posting a Link in the OP for combo deals for this Board and Phenom II's?

Good idea, or bad? You could tell people to keep you up to date on what they see...

All in favor? lol
I think you could have used the XFX card with the other apps or found a way to up the voltage another way...really the only reason people usually flash bios's is to either increase the maximum allowed overclock limit or to allow voltage +/-

Still the Asus card will work just fine so im sure you'll be happy

As for listing deals that doesn't sound like a bad idea

Any of you guys have SSDs and know if resetting the BIOS on the motherboard will help me with the SSD "frozen mode" issue that keeps you from running Secure Erase on it?

Just curious. Couldn't find anything. My Kingston in my new build with the MSI mobo is "frozen" and won't let me secure erase it.

Just wondering. Any pointers greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

jck

Well going on 3 days problem free! Im pretty sure it was my MSI 4850 that was causing the Hyper flood transport sync errors...

I got a whopping 5 months use out of that Now im stuck using an 8800 thats artifacting all over the place when it gets too warm, better than a crash I suppose.

Thanks all for the help and patience

I agree it does sound like a good idea! I would like to get the rest of the clubs members opinions on this. As you said I would for sure need some help keeping this up to date. One thing we could do is take say(example) two people and have them post the deals in their post and I could link to them from the OP. Like one for Tigerdirect, one for Newegg, so on and so forth. I would not be able to get this going until I get off my 24/5 work week. (come on Sat!) W/o a great deal of help from the rest of you.

i only asked because i have read in the msi forum, there tech said you can use the second one if you have a problem with the first one. and to make sure that the card is seated all the way, there is a fan plug right there, and if you have a fan pluged in it might or could hold the card up a bit.

You should try and tighten up those timings to CL6 or Even CL5...
