If you use slots 3 and 4, you should be OK (the two furthest away).

That ram might take a little more tweaking to get working out of the box.

If you want to use slots 1 and 2 (the two closest), then you are going to have clearance issues.

This is my ram:

and it doesn't have that much headroom - notice no heatspreader on the top.

This RAM (OCZ DDR3 C8 BE) has plenty of headroom.
I have run it 1824 Mhz @ 8-9-8-24-32-1t, and I currently run it 1600 Mhz, 7-8-7-20-28-1t @ 1.66v, and it will run those timings all the way to 1664 Mhz for me @ 1.67v.

I may actually start doing some more o/c'ing on this RAM and see if I can get it any better. I haven't yet tried 1333 Mhz @ C6, I think it may do something like 1400 Mhz, 6-7-6, or better on the speed.

@ NCspecV81 (aka "Wonka"): how did you 'cut' the stock heatsink for the chipsets to keep it on the VRM's? I'd like to give it a try with an aftermarket cooler (for the NB), but am not sure what you did to separate the NB and VRM parts of the heatsink. Hacksaw and sandpaper?

I dunno about everest, but I've had the same issue with core temp. I find speedfan works most of the time.

If you have ACC enabled it will do that.

YOu know that makes sense now on the 890FX...

With 6 PCI-e's someone could have Quad Fire with a Phys-x Card and TV Tuner Card. PCIe Slots for the New TV Tuner and PHyz-x Models I bet... Good Point!

Normally it's because the CPU Unlock (Used to be EC Frimware on older BIOS) Feature is set to "Enable". Even if you disable ACC but still have the CPU Unlock Feature set to enable, it will still do it. For some unknown reason, It only does it with the that feature enabled. But you guys can run ACC without having to use CPU Unlock feature. It just takes hitting the reset button. Unles my board is fudged up! LOL

P.S. Wouldn't surprise me if it was............

Try hitting the reset button on your case after it fails to post. Or set the "CPU Unlock" Feature to Enable, reboot in to the BIOS, set the ACC to Auto. It should post fine and then go back into BIOS and Disable the CPU Unloack feature and you should be good to go. But make sure either way that you try to hit the reset Button on your case if it fails to post after changing the ACC to "Auto", "All Cores" or "Per Core"... It work's every time for me...
