Just take care to make sure that you don't tweak the HS and Pipes any. It won't sit on there correctly unless you striaghten it.

I used a HARD mounted mirror. One that doesn't flex at all. Place the whole heat sink against the mirror virtically, placing most of the preasure on the VRM/ NB chipset section of the heatsink, being that it's the heaviest. Then look to see if Both of the SB Screw holes are sitting about .5 of a MM away fromt he mirror surface. THAT is wat you want. That way you know that each of the Chips heat sinks will be perfectly sitting against the Chip surfaces.

Note though... Make sure that the SB and NB. VRM heat sinks are perfectly parralell. If not you will til get and uneven contact between the chips and heat sinks.... I used AS5. Then TX-3, Now back to AS5.... TX-3 didn't seem to do the job as well s they predicted....

Other than that, I use the Fan off of the stock PhenomII HS and mount it with a couple of screws over the NB HS.... Unless you want to water cool it! That's really all that you can do!
LOL i was already conjuring up a witty way to explain its meaning had anyone questioned me on what it could possibly mean

I actually did replace the NB with fresh TIM around the time i had the soda spill so it should be fine and i have had excellent temps before now...i didn't expect this much heat dump from the 4890/4870 combo but damn its ridiculous

The NB temp increase looks to mainly be caused by the added heat dumping from my 4870 as its right below the NB and the rear of my 4870 can and will burn you

I just checked and the NB is now sitting around 61C-63C after adding the fans...i have kept the stress testing going so the NB's not even had time to cool down

Everything looks to be under control at this point

I have a MSI 790FX-GD70 with my 965 when I put it together, I could only get it to post when the memory is running in single channel. I haven't messed with any of the BIOS settings and I have CORSAIR DOMINATOR memory installed. I tried some OCZ DDR3 memory from another rig and had the same issue. I'm thinking a bad board or CPU. Thoughts? Oh, here is a link on the memory.

Single Channel? Do you only have one stick in? The Board doesn't run in single channel otherwise...

For 1600mhz Try

In Cell Menu
Dram Strap @ 1:4
In Dram Advanced Config
DCT mode set to Both
Set Both Channels to 8-8-8-24-32-1T
Advanced Drive Strengths set to Both
Bank Interleaving to Disable and everything else @ Auto
In Voltages Section
CPU-NB @ 1.25-1.30v
CPU DDR-PHY @ 1.23-1.25v
Dram Voltage to 1.70-1.75
NB Chipset Voltage to 1.20v
HT Link Voltage to 1.25v
Spread Spectrum to Disabled.

This should give you a good base to start from. It may need some extra tweaking though. So be prepared! It may not.. Hope fully not!

Thanks for the response! I have 2 sticks 2x2GB. I'm hoping these pics help...I can do more.

At the moment i have a little to null bottleneck with the 4870 running in x8 and the last trick up my sleeve is a full reformat and i certainly need a refresh on my current OS

I'll do a format within this month and see if that fixs the issue...trust me i followed your driver install to the tee and even before that i tried my own method using driver sweeper which should have worked...

If anything i am sure i can get MSI to RMA it if i have to

I'm hoping its the OS and when you look at the chances (OS/Slot) there in favor of it being the OS
Have you tried the 4870 in slots 1 and 3,as a single card setup,if so,what speed was the card running at,x16/x8,then do the same for the 4890,trying it in both slots,this will let you know if it's the slot or the cards.

Slots 1 & 3 should run at 16x.

on it .. I know I know LOL LOL , but now it doesn't work and I had to go back to a

less powerful PSU. A raidmax 500w PSU. It seems like all my case fans and cpu fan is

running slower. Do you guys think my 500w PSU doesn't have enough juice to run This

Beast? I have no instability yet and everything works fine. My idle temp tho is a little

higher @ 50c with everything at stock settings, but with stock HS/F. I just ordered a

Zalman CNP9900 so hopefully that helps.
Glad to see your all sorted now,well apart from the misshap with your dog,lol!!,audio driver,these things are easily overlooked,it's all part of the game,trial and error,good luck.
