Anything over 1333 is an OC on the CPU-IMC. The most I have seen is 1813. Anything over 1600 is kinda a waster IMHO anyway. Just tighten the timmings and run it as fast as you can. It's not that the Ram cant do 2000 it's that the CPU cant.

Nice gear mduclow! You're making my mouth water waiting tell Christmas for my 965c3 and 790FX-GD70

I am using a 64-bit O/S.
What kind of voltage are you running for 4ghz stable and what are your temps with your water cooling?

edit: I'm definitely wanting 4ghz+, ideally wanting 4.2-4.4+, willing to push my vcore fairly high
Also considering hooking my water chiller up to the new PC, just not sure if I want to go to the trouble of insulating new components from frost and risk damage....

You're going to be happy with that, no doubt. After waiting so long, I bet you're just glad to finally get one!

Actually no! I rejected when UPS delivered it. I just told them that it was the wrong Product because of the website Misposting...

Did my Reserch and Ordered a SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X 5770!!! And WOW is it cool! Literally Runs cool! My 4870 512 OC Ran Idle at 42-44*C w/ the fan running @ 70+%.
This thing bounces between 31-32 between 40+ %!!!! It's Amazing! My case are actually lower I believe. The HEAT coming off of the top (Backside) of that 4870 510mb OC was Rediculous! Seriously like 2-3 times + hotter at idle.

Anyone that has a Version1 Should SERIOUSLY think about a VAPOR-X, ANYTHING!!! LOL

Eclipse is COMPLETELY Right. Except the fact that IF one can run CL6 @ OVER 1600Mhz, like 1700+. THAT will be the exception. But how Plausible that is, is actually the case here.... So we wll see after the 17th (Actually today).

Hey man, all I have to say is MERRY CHRISTMAS to you!!!! I think that we can all agree on that!

Keep us informed and feel free to share your excitment when you get your parts!

That's one thing that I've come to realize that is a major part of life.....

Sharing your excitement with others. It's like one of those "small things" in life!

We've actually been having a whole discussion about this over the past few pages recently. My own RAM is advertised at 2133Mhz, but the guys say the CPU only handles up to 1333Mhz at present.

Correct me if Im wrong but, doesn't PCI-E 1x work in 16x slots too?

I am not knowledgeable enough to answer that to be honest. If it is, I had no clue. You may be right but someone with more experience and knowledge may be able to answer that one for you.

Im seriously sure I seen that somewhere that PCI-E 16x slots aren't made for GPUs only. And that 1x-16x cards will work. Afterall I did see someone run a 16x GPU in a 1x Slot and do not ask me how that works the picture of it is crazy too let me see if I can find it.

No, upgrading the bios won't really help much at this moment in time on the GD70....maybe if you where on bios 1.0 (the beginning) then it could have somewhat of an effect but at this point it won't really make a big difference

I made the jump last night from 1.6 to 1.7 and then to 1.84 and of course nothing has really changed that is noteworthy

As Rewindlabs said and I found posted here, yes you can. So, I learned something new today. Thanks for the question.

Unfortunately, I would still not have gone with the Asus board because of the pricing (+/- $190 vs. the $154 I paid for the GD70) and because I read in a review that the heatsink you see beneath the CPU is a bit high and "could" interfere with some CPU heatsinks.

I am sure it is an excellent board though and would have probably gone for it if not for the pricing. The price difference between the Asus and the MSI is what paid for the freight charges in my particular case. Have two kids in university so I need to skimp as much as possible.
