I just added this board to my system and the bios is slightly different than my prior boards. I have some patriot DDR3-1600 high performace viper series ram with specs: 7-7-7-20 at 1.9 volts. I have flashed the mobo to bios version 1.7. Upon booting into the bios I press F5 to get into Memory-Z which reads dimm 1 and dimm 2 with TCL 7, TRCD 7, TRP 7 and TRAS of 20 which are the right timings for my ram so it doesn't appear I need to manually enter my timings. So the next thing I would want to do obviously is adjust the DRAM Voltage as it is currently set to auto, so I adjust it to the recommended 1.9. My DRAM frequency is only showing as 1066, I have noticed if I adjust the FSB/DRAM ratio to 1:4 I do achieve the 1600 that my RAM should run at. Is this the way I am to achieve 1600mhz or am I doing something wrong? I have read a ratio of 1:1 is the best, but I don't even get that option. All other bios settings are default/AUTO, the only thing I have manually changed so far is the DRAM Voltage.

My specs are:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE C3
MSI 790FX-GD70
4 gig (2x2) DDR3 Patriot Viper II Series - PC3-12800 - 1600MHz

1:1 is an intel thing and that has changed with i7/5. you are correct about having it at 1:4 for 1600. what it is is a ratio of the HTT/FSB (200) to the ram clock. So, 200x4=800x2=1600.

Thanks for the reply man! One other question if I may, is the number displayed on the debug LED/Post LED supposed to be constantly changing while I'm booted up into windows and doing normal tasks? It seems to be cycling between 30, 31, 28 and various other numbers. Is this normal?

I have a question on the MSI 790GX-G65. I am assuming the BIOS is very similar to the FX so I'm asking my question here. I've been using the AMD overdrive to change my multipliers and voltages, but the changes don't stick when I restart, and I'm starting to think they won't. So I went into the Cell menu to manualy change them, but the voltages are grayed out and set to [AUTO] and I can't change them. I can set my multipliers, but I can only get to 18.5 on stock voltages, so I've got a problem.

K, so I finally reseated my CPU cooler, but I think I'm doing something wrong on my end, because they're the exact same temps. One thing I might be doing wrong is the TIM application, so I was just wondering: how did you guys put it on before installing the Megahalems?

Just like any heatsink really. I have found that using a little mound in the middle of the Processor about the size of a Pea.

LITERALLY About this big: O

BTW, what kind are you using. Rule of thumb is to seat the heatsink.

Run a full load on all cores at max heat for about 10-15 Minutes. Trun pC off and let it cool down to room temps. THAT is ONE HEAT CYCLE.

Once cool, turn PC back on and Run another Heat Cycle, then one more time. This usually helps set the TIM. SOme suggest making sure that the PC is run for 200+ hours before the TIM is set as well. Eclipseaudio suggests tightening the Heatsink (If possible) after a few heat cycles more. (Is that what you said E?)
