Your very welcome,and good luck in your quest.

I hope i can have this rig together soon and it just work the way its supposed to
Cool, getting her fixed! 360 will be fun too! I have RMA'd my board twice and both times I was calling them every couple of days and Getting them to at least estimate the turn around time and shipping date. Just be tollerable of them and their "accents" (Very strong Asian accents) and you wil get further with them. Both of my RMA's only took about 10 days... Set expectations with them on the phone! Politely of course. Making sure that they know that this motherboard belongs to your "main computer that you pay bills from and are productive with" and that should set the tone to keep a fire lit under them... Seriously though! It's works! It's called "Creating a sense of urgency".... You'll get her back in time!

i tossed the x4 955 in a friends rig and it booted up so its not that, and the psu works so im willing to test the board any way possible before i rma tomorrow.
Not sure if I ever read that you tried using the power button on the Board or not? Have you made sure that the Front panel case "Wires" are not broken in any spots or shorting themselves out?

It's funny.... I had a PhenomII x 4 810 C2 which is stock @ 2.6Ghz. I have SS of that running at 3.925ghz. So I highly doubt that 3.7 is your max. It's all about settings. It has to be the right combo for each setup. You can take advice and use that as a base to start to find the right combo. You also have to single things out finding each components indidvidual max values... Like I've said before, that doesn't mean that you will be able to reach those values all at the same time though....

lower the CPU-NB, HT Link and ram below their Stock specs (ram can be taken down pretty low to completely rule it out) and find the Max frequency for your HT Ref Clock and CPU First.... Test stability with prime95 in Small FFT's mode. Being that it mostly stress the CPU...

"Not sure if I ever read that you tried using the power button on the Board or not? Have you made sure that the Front panel case "Wires" are not broken in any spots or shorting themselves out?"

ya i tried that button, but i found out it was a case short, tested it outside case and it powers up so thats a relief.

so what does putting an extra standoff mean? put a screw where i wasnt suppose to?

bear with me im still learning a lot haha

thanks for the help last night btw guys, helped me keep my sanity haha

A standoff is the little brass part that the motherboard screws seat into. if you have one in the wrong place it can short on the solder points on the back of the board. They, the standoffs, keeep the motherboard from shorting on motherboard tray or case wall. Example:

standoff is the little pegs the mobo screws go into. they keep the pins and solder points on the back of the board from grounding on the case. not to be confused with a mexican standoff which would be a whole other thread.

i do not seem to have any of these little pegs anywhere, the holes on the case are just holes. but if i used a screw that wasnt for the mobo would this cause the short?

your gonna need something to keep the board off the case. maybe they are still attached to your old board?

OMG,your not using any standoffs,they should have been supplied with the case,usualy in a bag or box of bits and pieces,including the right screws.

I think there are a few members on here using the H50-1,from what i know,they give quite reasonable results,temperature wise,to be honest,any aftermarket HSF will be better than the stock one.
