hey guys can you try and clock with the 3:8 divider? I've had some seriously good results doing it. The bus speed will be high but it seems to play nicer on my c3. I'm curious if it will be the same for you.

I lost my bios battery and I need to know what type of battery to get for it.

Also I've got G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) and I need to know how to set it up to work with that kinda memory.

3300ht!!! That's almost retarded, lol. Can't wait to get my 965 C3 today or tomorrow, I'll try that. I dont recall a specific 3:8 divider setting anywhere?

Yes its just your run of the mill thermal tape...same stuff you would see under a GPU

Maybe but i doubt it...i am about to go ahead and work with the NB voltage and see if i can't drop the temps there but il be sure to give the CPU voltage a look when im there...so far though my load temps have dropped under 10C so it shouldn't have that much of an effect on the CPU

On another note i can now run passively...well technically i am running my CPU passively...my CPU fan actually makes this very odd grinding sound every few 1000 RPM's it spins and it is audible at any fan speed...so what i have done is set the fan to just shut off in the bios until i pass 45C...the top exhaust fan keeps me under 30C idle whilst OC'd

Does anyone have a link to the modded Phenom MSR Tweaker with 3 power states?

The 3:8 is the 1:2.66 divider.

Some say the closer you have the HT to the NB frequency, the higher it (NB) can clock, stable.

NCspec does some wild things, we get the benefit. Notice he's phase changing that run?

Still the HT link reduces system performance when it gets clocked up...

Hi Guys,
Looking for some advise and share some thoughts on this board.
For 3 months my system worked fine MSI 790FX-GD70 + 2 times 2GB (6-6-6-24 GEIL PC3-10660) but suddenly it refused to boot and hang at FF>D2...
Found on several forums removing 1 memory slot will cure it and indeed it did.
Changed the setting for the memory from AUTO to 1.7V as on the memory stick shown.
Flashed the bios to v1.7 and plugged the second memory slot in and it worked fine.
Today started again PC...same ****...remove 1 memory module and it boot again.
So quiet desperate. (This all was tested without overclocking).
Via this forum I noticed there is an AMD tool...so installed it and now running bit faster but still only 2Gb.
Any other suggestions i could try to keep this board working with 4Gb ?
Regards
Cobrandy

Hey guys, having a little different type of problem with my mobo.
I am trying to install a physx/folding card, and when I put it in (8800gt) I installed in the 2nd from top PCIe slot, my 5870 is in the next one down (2nd from bottom) I get no POST information or display upon bootup, until windows loads, then the display will come on as normal. I have a dummy plug installed on the 8800gt. Is there a setting in the BIOS to which I can specify what slot has my main monitor or anything like that?

There is, yes. I left it there. The only concern I had were the two chips.
