Well, I haven't ran it like that since I first got it. I run it at 1050/1450 @ 1.3-1.312v. Runs fine. With 55% fan speed at the above settings,it idles at 43-44*C...

No problem.

What Slots do you have your ram in? The Blue or the Black? Blue is better to start with. Also, does CPU-Z show your ram running at 800Mhz? Cause that's really 1600Mhz. You know that though. Let me know... Change the Settings with the Arrow keys.

Sounds like Ram.... Anything else wouldn't let you boot into windows if it didn't have enough power. Ram is really the only thing that will cause soething like this in my experience...

ONe more thing, do you have the "Spread Spectrum" option (down at the bottom of the "Cell Menu" set to "Disabled"? If not you should. It can issues with things.

Hi guys im new to this site, thanks for having me , i have had this board for 6 months already and love it, but the last 2 months i have been having an issue of my 955 cpu getting pretty hot like high 50's C, when i first got this setup i had it overclocked to 3.7ghz with my xigmatek red scorpion cooler, now at max fan speed can't cool it down, changed thermal paste which was ocz freeze and no change, my NB temp is high 70's most of the time and i just updated my case dew to size, the antec p160w is a little bigger and lets me use 120mm case fans which is in use front and back...any ideas??? btw its not overclocked at the moment due to the heat and it being mid summer here.
oh 790fx bios version is 1.8

It really sounds like RAM. Try setting the divider in the bios to give you 1066 Mhz (should be the auto setting), and set the voltage to about .02v higher than rated. Try loading windows with that. If it is happy, and lets you install, then we know it has to do with the settings.

One thing about this board is that it allows a lot of user input for tweaking, but can make it a bit difficult for people new to all of this.

If this still doesn't work, then you really should run Memtest86+ v4. You boot off of a disk and it will run tests on your memory. If you have bad ram, Memtest will find it nearly every time.

This is the process of elimination to begin determining what is causing the issues with your system.

We can help you though.

Ambient temps can increase and decrease system temps.

Your NB temps are on the edge of too high, 80*c is max safe, but over 70*c is not a good place to be, as explained to me by an MSI Tech.

A lot of us have removed the stock 'all-in-one' heatsink and replaced the TIM with something good, like AS5, MX-3, OCZ Freeze, etc... for some of us this has made a huge improvement in our NB temps. Personally, mine dropped 15*c on idle, and about 20*c+ under full load. I now idle@ 40*c~ and load @ 46-47*c~, compared to 54-56*c~ and 65*c+.

One way to see if you have good enough case air flow, is to remove the side panel, if your temps drop at all, then you do not have adequate air flow in the case.

Changing the direction the fans are moving air may correct this, or you may need more/bigger fans. Try to have an equivalent amount of air flow (CFM) in both directions, meaning 100cfm intake and 100cfm exhaust, for example. Intake in the front/side, and exhaust out the back/top. Something like that.

Ghost,

Marc has given some great advice! I myself, have even replaced the TIM on my NB/MOSFET/SB Chipset Heat Sink and Had, what I consider, great improvement. I was maxing out at idle, around 46*C and 51-52*C on load.

I simply popped off the Heat Sink by removing the 6 Screws from the Bottom of the Board, removed the old Factory TIM and applied a little of AS5.

My Idle Temps went down to 39*C and Load only maxes out at 41*C! At the Same settings. Then only thing that has Change was my CPU-NB Voltage. It's @ 1.41v instead of 1.48v. but that's not going to affect the NB CHipset temps being that it's on the Board. All of the frequencies are the same as well as the NB Chipset voltage being the same...

So it's Definitely Worth it!


EDIT:

Okay, this Stuff FINALLY got here on the 7the Busines day! DON'T EVER get Free 4-7 day delievery.... It was 9 Days including the Weekend!?

So I'm going to replce the AS5 I have on my CPU and NB/MOSFET/SB Heatsink, today... We'll see where it stands. The heat transfer Capabilities for the tx-3 ARE MORE EFFICIENT THAT as5....


P.S. I have found that 1.8 Official and 1.91beta both do not play well with AOD... Maybe it was just my Install though...

I've heard that AOD doesn't work with the new C3 revision chips. Anyone else able to confirm this one way or another?

I know I get all kind of weird behavior with it.

I am both happy and sad to report my issues where board related. Faulty from the factory. I exchanged the board yesterday and I am happy to report this new board is running smooth!

Now, to buy or not buy an Intel 80GB SSD to compliment the system. It's either that one or the OCZ Vertex Turbo 60GB on Newegg...

I'm using Vertex's, probably better support from us with the OCZ's, seems to be the most common among us. Better pricing too, right?

Well I'm back up and Running with Tuniq TX-3 TIM on everything... I'm surprised to say that at the same settings prior to replacing the AS5 with the TX-3, the TX-3 has further dropped My MN Chipset Temps an additional 2*C and my CPU down an additional 1*C. I haven't Put a load on her yet. She's been running at idle and surfing for about 10+ Minutes now with no change in temps....

Idle Temps With Tuniq TX-3 on the NB/MOSFET/SB Chipset HS....




And Here are the Load temps. Same Settings as before the AS5 and Before the TX-3 BUT with a slightly higher CPU-NB Voltage. NBChipset is sitting at 39*C @ Full load for 20 minutes!
