right now in bios just 1.45v CPU, 1.28v CPU-NB and Ram 1.9v rest auto. CPU 4Ghz, CPU-NB 2.8Ghz, mem 7-7-7-24@1600. Then i got PhenomMSRTweaker running 2Ghz@1v wont go below 1v unless i keep the multi at 10 and run prime95 which its stable at 2Ghz .94v. Not sure why i cant go below 1v unless its under load.

I am getting the sync flood error, brand spanking new system

It started only when i upgraded from a HD4350 (temporary card) to the HD5850
It originally occured only when idle for a few hours, never during gaming, until i cleared the CMOS, then I couldn't even start into windows without it happening

I did try disabling the HPET as per previous post - the error still occured

I have adjusted the bios settings a bit and it lets me start into windows now

I am overclocking my ram from 1333 to 1600, so i bumped the voltage on the DRAM up one notch last night

I have had the system running all night with prime95, no problem, like i said it only occurs after several hours of system sitting idle.

I have the multiplier up to 18x so I am at 3.6Ghz

so far no problems but i have not let it sit idle for too long, we will see what happens when i leave it this afternoon

I can guarantee that i had no sync flood with the puny 4350 graphics card in there, only when i put the 5850 in did the error start appearing

I am also concerned that my northbridge is cooking eggs at 65-70C, is this a normal temperature that everyone else is seeing?,

my cpu is about 32C idle, 53C running prime95, torture blend with low noise adapter installed on noctua, i am not concerned with this temp only the north

i have verified the system temps with speedfan and everest, also with noncontact temperature probe

any help on the sync flood (it may be solved-not sure yet) and northbridge temp would be appreciated

I tried to buy a Noctua NH-U12P SE2 and use it on my GD70 and I figured out after the fact that the heatsink interferes with the ram slots which is sorta a bad thing for me because I wanted to give 8gigs a try. Well one of the kits of ram I bought were defective in Memtest. And on top of that the site I bought from declined RMA on the Heatsink fan. So Now I've made an RMA request on the HSF and the Ram. For anyone wondering the company was Netlink Computer Incorporated. So Now I have an opened Noctua NH-U12P SE2 and possibly have to try to sell it half used locally. I didn't even get to mount the Heatsink. The only parts even touched is the AMD mounting kit package. So basically its brand new opened and they declined it with no given reason just "DECLINED".

Ya you can't have ram with any height (heat spreaders, etc) or it will run into the noctua heatsink, mine sit under it fine and are qvl for this board

the orientation is wierd too, the sink is mounted on board to push air upwards and not to the back of the case ( i think there used to be two ways of amd mount but now there is one)

luckily i have a fan and grill above it so air has somewhere to go

other notes:

the ultra low noise adapter just cause the cpu fan not to run, ( it is just a resistor)

the screws to mount the tower mounts to the board were not long enough to catch the backplate threads, i had to replace them with my own hardware that was longer - zinc plated crap - not chromed- but it works

I bought a couple Corsair Dominator kits and the heatsinks on them are big enough but, I do not want to take off or just the fins. They're good heatsinks compared to the G.Skills I have which have bad heatspreaders. When I was reading on a forum or a review I read that you can adjust the direction of air flow towards the back of the case. I was clearly mistaken. Must've been another kit or the intel kit I was reading about.

Now I dread the fact they might decline my RMA again. Its so nice of them to turn away a returning customer after previous bad experiences after I had rma'd a ram kit it took them 3 months to finally give me my credit note. Their tech support consists of jerks. They're right snobby they are. I had one guy get upset when I told him that I didn't want to hear that I lost $80 on shipping anymore. How is this not common sense? Poor people skills or what.

I do too but, this is what Im talking about. How many people want their CPU Airflow going that way by choice for a standard ATX Tower case design? The fans will suck in air from around the Video card which gets hot and if you do it the other way the cpu is blowing hot air on the video card as well and it probably creates a heat pocket like that if you have bad air circulation around there.

What are they thinking making heatsinks like this for AMD users. IN what way do we enjoy having our ram slots blocked!? Is this some sort of sadistic pleasure they get out of knowing we have to use bare ram in there!? And for even less friendly heatsinks that completely block the ram altogether!

Does anyone know of a HSF out there that blows air to the rear of the case, doesn't block Dominator ram, and is better than a Cooler Master V8

NCspecV: I may have one for yta let me look around. what you need is the white part of the socket that moves and latches on to the pins correct?

Do you have C&Q disabled? It sounds to me like it is going into C&Q mode and then having issues.

I run a torture rack so my temps are kinda low but NB idle 48*c and hottest has been 57*c. I forget who it was that talked to MSI tech but they said you are good to 80*c on the NB

I think I turned cool and quiet off, but i will double check
I had left it idle for 2 hours and it had the sync flood error again
I will also turn off sleep mode because it may be the issue, i have it set to sleep at 2 hours

the torture rack is open case?, then my temps on the NB may be okay, also my hsinkfan is blowing up and not across the NB which may explain a slightly higher temp, right now it is at 63C.

Gixbit - if you could rotate it you could mount the fans a little higher and fit any ram, you could also try rotating the fastening brackets (not the mounting bars) although i cannot confirm they will fit in the other orientation.

I can confirm that the older noctua AM2+ mounting kit allowed you to mount in either orientation up or back of case, the newer mounting kit just labelled AMD only allows you to mount directing airflow upwards- not a problem if you have a top mounted fan like my case
