School sucks

I definitely need to get some better TIM in...iv got AS5 installed throughout most of my systems now and im sure something like TX-3 could do a better job and i could ditch the annoying set in time of AS5

I did the same thing.

Possible 790FX-GD70 owner has some questions ..

Would a Thermalright True Black with a 25mm deep fans fit on this mobo without potentially causing clearance issues with RAM with large heat spreaders/sinks (i.e Corsair Dominator GT.. G.Skill Trident etc etc) ?

Also anyone here running a 8x PCI-E Raid card in one of the 16x slots ?.. would like to use a LSI 9260-4i you see..

An 8x card will work just fine a 16x slot don't worry

That's Correct. 2Ghz up and 2Ghz Down. 8 or 16 bit I believe.

and that's only with 1:2.66 divider so actually stock frequency 1,066 MHz

My BIOS settings were:
CPU V = 1.38
CPU NB = 1.27 ( why in full load this voltage goes up automatically?)
CPU DDR PHY = 1.23
(this is quite interesting because it helped me stabilize my Ram but I don't know how much I can put without having my RAM modules burnt )

DRAM V = 1.89 V (though I can put 1.9 according to specification ... what do you think how much can I add to this 1.9 more?

I think it's all because my RAM... I should have bought these ones -- > DDR3 Gamer Series for AMD Black Edition - PC3-12800 - 1600MHz Memory Modules (AMD Series)
instead of these
DDR3 Viper II Series - PC3-12800 - 1600MHz Memory Module
...

Well, they work with 1:4 divider with 800 MHz of clock speed but with terrible timings and w/o CPU overclocked - everything at stock voltages.

Any tips to tighten these timings ? (I have already moved them to slot 3 & 4 as you've told me but I don't know if it made any difference)
You just have to experiment. That's pretty much how I've learned everything on this board.... I don't think that it's the ram, but more of the Chips IMC. Just keep working at it.... Be careful not to givev the IMC to much volts though... Whatever you do.

Really, nothing speacial eh? Other than that Enormous HS for the CPU and NB! LOL

Supposed to get my 955 today! UPS usually stops by between 1:30 and 5pm.

Has anyone ever seen a Shipping Number from UPS Mail (Not parcel service, that is All numbers instead of mixing letters with the numbers..?

Okay, this DOENS"T make Any sense......

HTH, Does a PC prime fine for hours on Blend and then just reboot. NO HTSF Error or anything....

And now this 965 is requiring more CPU Core Voltage to be stable...

AND I really need someone to Check on something for me! Bad!

Can Someone check to see if there is a difference in power between System Fan 1 and System Fan 2 on the Motherboard 3pin fan connectors?

Set them both to 50% first and check them with the same fan. and then 100%....

I would be REALLY greatful! Because If no one else is getting this issue, I may have a power issue with my Motherboard...

@ 50% on both Sys Fan1 and Sys Fan 2 with the Same fans (Scythe 120x38 133cfm) Fan connector 1 registers @ 1525-1544 Rpm's
Fan Connector 2 registers @ 1312- 1328 Rpm's

And even when I switch the Fans, there is only about a 45rpm difference when I swap fans...

So putting fan 1 on connector 2 would still be lower than if the fan was on connector 1 and Vise versa.

EDIT: It looks like @ the 50% setting in the BIOS for Fan control of Connector 2, the BIOS is not actually setting it o 50% but more like 44%.... Son of B!!!

At 75% for System Fans Connectors 1 &2 they both run the same speed...

I'm on 1.84beta. Maybe I'll change to 1.8Official or 1.92bets to see if it's fixed. If it's not fix then i will contact MSI, ALONG with them taking away the ability to view the 12v+Rail power output in Power Management..

Depending on where you locate your fans, I'd say yes. I've got a TRUE 120 Black, with a fan mounted to push, and while the True itself does not hamper the standard height crucial ballistix, the fan sits right over the first stick. (Of course if you use a 120x20mm fan here...problem solved)



Taller sticks will definitely pose a problem in this orientation. I'm not sure about if it were rotated 90 degrees though...somebody?

WRT the RAID card, I've tried a 4x HighPoint RocketRaid with mixed results. Most times the raid card's bios would not post. HighPoint support indicated there may be not enough memory availble to load the RocketRaid's BIOS. Of course YMMV and the last time I tried was with the 1.5 version of the GD-70's BIOS.
