Yeh I remember you telling me to dial all the voltages in manually and wrote them down somewhere but I think I chucked the lot out in frustration after my previous failed overclocking attempts.

I don't suppose you have them handy again .

Yeh I have tried running with a 1:4 divider, thats what it doesn't like which is why I have gone down the overclocking via FSB route.

Another odd issue I noticed with my ATI Radeon HD 5770 gpu's.... when I had it in crossfire, CPU-Z reports under the mainboard tab that the link width is x8, and when I when I removed the crossfire, it reports link width of x4... when I've seen people with the same config as I have link width of x16, with only difference in their config being their ram was corsair and mine is g. skill...

Theres your problem,you need to be using bios 1.8 and after to get your ram to run at 1:4 1600,it was'nt supported before this.

58-66C are ok Gary,one thing a lot of us did on here was remove the complete HS system,just 6 screws on the underneath of the mobo,remove the pink gum from NB and SB chips,clean and reaply some better quality TIM,you should knock between 10-20c off.

Ah right, I'll flash it then. Is it worth going to 1.9 or is that unnecessary for me.

Does it invalidate the warranty replacing the tim.

I've wanted to do this to my board and my gpu for a while now.

Why don't these companies put some bloody decent stuff on. grrrrrr

I've searched for this issue, and found someone else that fixed it by not having anything plugged into any of the other pcie x16 slots... I had a wifi card, pci e card in pcie3, in between pcie1 and pcie4. After removing the wifi card (so now in x16 slots there exists only the 2 graphics cards), I got the link width back to x16, now the fun part of testing for >4 hours to see if this fixes the issue...

// It's so much more difficult to confirm an issue fixed than it is to confirm an issue, lol, since it only needs to happen once for it to be declared broken, but to declare it as fixed, you need to wait till you see nothing...
