I dunno. I just start with overclocking the piss out of it. Normally I don't even start with stock coolers or air at all.


instead of a cooler change I went and put my 965 in...let's see how it compares.

Are u guys just putting the stock cooler back on after the new grease is applied? Thx
Well, I pulled my MB out last night and cleaned the garbage that the factory applied for thermal transfer and dropped 33c off my temps thats right went from 82c down to 49c flat under 100% load (NB). So yes, it is well worth it and I advise you to do it and soon.

Also, I did my pair of HD4890's while I had them out and dropped 19c off the temps, ATI uses the same garbage as MSI for thermal transfer.

Made a huge improvement in heat transfer

Thanks to you guys here at this thread for bringing this issue to our attention.

welp... I tested out the 965. I'm not willing to go up anymore with it on this cooler.

1. I couldn't post at the same settings I was completing linx on with the 955
2. I couldn't complete a 5 pass run of linx w/o either crashing or getting an error with the same settings as the 955 but with 1.496v.
3. I don't think 4ghz is do-able on the stock cooler with my 965. I hit 66c during the last attempt that errored. =o(


At least on air, this 955 is a BEAST! Thinking about ordering another 955 from the 'egg to see if I can get the same batch.

Great. I go to boot my computer today just to check on the NB temps again before I did anything and now it won't even boot. Hyper Transport flood. I can load into windows for about 5 seconds and then crash. Got the case open ready to dismantle I guess, and of the guides posted on here nothing really feels specific enough to give me much confidence on this : / but now its either I do or I cash in on the warrenty since its past first 30 days RMA. I'm really pissed, quite ready to just demand a full refund and go with any motherboard but this one, RMAing something that isn't flat out DoA just straight up semi broken TWICE is just wrong. I bet you all SO MUCH when I pull this Dr Mos off there will be NO TIM what so ever. I'll take pics and threaten to sue but never ever in a million years go through with it I'll be so furious lawl. Will post back if I have any farther problems in actually doing this. Someone said you have to remove the CPU. . that seems annoying, going to try to do without that if possible. Doesn't look like they will conflict.

Do you think that it may be because you didn't work up to the OC point that you with the 955 when you popped in the 965?

From my expereince, if you shut down a PC for while (or take out a CPU)that had an OC on it and then try those settings as soon as you boot it's typically a no go and has to be worked back up...

Same goes to you to man. Did you have this thing OC'd when you shut it off?

I've never experienced that to be honest. It's quality of the cpu holding back the 965 I have from doing the same settings as the 955. I can't even post at anything less than 1.47v on the 965 at the same settings as the 955.

I even tweaked some other settings to cater to the 965 but it's still a no-go. I'll play with this a tad bit longer and see what I can do though. I may just grit my teeth and do a 1.5v linx 5 pass and walk away so I don't have to see the temps haha.

No, it wasn't OCed. All voltages were on auto and CPU + NB were on auto Only my RAM is set to its proper timings which is considered OC. I got into bios and swap to 'fail safe' defaults and still HT error. It happens after about 20 seconds or so every time, so It is probably the whole heat issue. : /

LOL- What's the OPN on the 965? I have a "0946DPMW" with OPN ending in 90474.... but it's 4.0Ghz Stable @ 1.42v with <2800Mhz Nb

@ jimibgood,

I contacted DangerDen abuot the MSI 790FX-GD70's possible water cooling solutions and THIS is what they responded with... ***?

Sorry Andrew, we're not going to be much help either. We don't have anything which will fit that board, sorry about that. Best regardsDan Stephens Ticket Details===================Ticket ID: 7355Department: General SupportPriority: LowStatus: Open
So what is really going on? I told him that they should bring this corperately and really consideer it being that this board is doing so well with enthusiasts and that's it's so widely used amoung them.... So we'll see what they say.

Have you received any word Jimi?

Please do this. I would love to see if this true and that the 955 is just a ocing beast.
