That's awesome mastiff.

Thanks! It's getting there. I want at least 4Ghz CPU and once I get there with the CNB@ 3010 it'l be more like 4085Mhz CPU. The HT Link will be around 2800Mhz. it does seem like the NB Clocks easier with a HTlink.

The HT Link does determine the Amount of CPU to NB Chipset available Bandwidth, so it must help!!!! No?

Actually, running that ram is almost certainly the reason your computer is crashing just a few seconds after running windows. You really should be running ram that is AMD tested (I highly recommend the OCZ black edition). At a bare minimum you should remove one stick and run only 2 sticks, since you are losing your dual channel configuration.

No offense but that deosn't matter if it's AMD tested.... All that means is that AMD tested that specific Ram with a specific AMD setup. I doesn't mean that if it's not AMD tested or certified, that it won't work right. I don't think that it really matters. IMO, I could get ANY Working Ram to work just fine on ANY AMD system that it is Supposed to work on. Some ram just needs more tweaking than others to get to work... That's all.

Once again that wasn't meant to offend you or anyone at all.

It's like if you go over to OCZ... There will be guys that innocently don't know that much about setting up Ram. They think that just be cause it's throwing errors in Memtest that it automatically means that the Ram is bad and they need an RMA started... When in fact it just needs to be set up properly.

I would think that his system was most likely restarting from such high temps, rather than from the 6Gb of Ram. JMO though.... Hopefully Changing the TIM on the HS will yield better NB Chipset temps!

Just past hour 6 about 15 minutes ago for that previous Screen of my Current OC..

For both the North and South bridges, and then on the actual chips should I wipe them down with alcohol to get the pink gunk off? Or should the TIM be applyed to the chip itself?

Anyway, this is my Current OC and working on getting it higher. I REALLY wish that I could find a "Low Volt" version of my Ram for a good price. I'm trying to get this to 4.0+ with 3Ghz Nb and 1700mhz CL6 ram. it's wokring so far and I only have another 35-38Mhz on my Ram to go.. I will most likely end up with 1720Mhz Cl6 Ram, Just over 4Ghz on the CPU and Just over 3ghz on the NB....

THIS ONE is Prime95 BLEND Stable for over 5hours now...

Mastiff, What brand of memory and specs are you running?

Well the heat sinks are squicky clean with white pad still intact *shrug* My main issue currently is the damn chips. Do I really need to get any remaining gunk off the sides of the chip too (not on the top of the chip, off to the side on a raised platform on the MB) theres not much left but it isn't being easy to get all the stuff completly off. The chips look mad flat but only half of their surface is mirror-like (y'know, where those monkeys at MSI decided not to add TIM) still have just little specs of the gunk remaining. Sitting here with a Alcohal damp Q-tip scrubing dubing. Every bone in my body wants to just say "DONE!" and throw on the AS-5 and put it back together >,<

Yea, its triple channel >,< tho I still don't believe thats why my Northbridge hits 80-90C? Or is it? Millions of RAM errors per second = my NB on fire? Lol.
I made the same mistake when I bought this board. I knew nothing about dual and triple channel DDR3. I had 3 sticks in at first but after a while it would not boot unless I only had 2 in but when I ran prime blend it would stop almost instantly. After realizing the mistake a got dual channel and noticed a big difference. I sold the triple channel ram on ebay for $20 more than what I paid for it so it wasn't too bad. The NB temp didn't change much after though until I replaced the TIM. I heard that some people can get by with running 2 sticks of triple channel in a dual channel board but from my experience I wouldn't recommend it.

I'll check out the possible RAM issue once I get this baby booted back up. I have breaking news tho, I just found out the Southbridge was made in Taiwan. Its getting squicky clean, im getting impaitent and putting abit more elbow greese into the scrubing. Think I'll be done within the hour pray to god it still turns on xDD.

Real quick, could anyone post links to the sites they used to purchase Water blocks for this board and chip combo. I'm having trouble finding parts.. New to water cooling and really want to put my HAF 932 to good use!
