Fry's has a sale on the 790fx for $127 and $20 mir, ends today. Unfortunately, it was for what ever stock they had left, which the rep was nice enough to inform me that the three remaining units were cutomer returned units or refurbished, hence a $6 coupon included w/ these units. The other local store did not have any in stock. Decided to go w/ the 890fx, got it for $199 w/ mir of $20. My friend bought it for me in exchange for my sig cpu and ram trade. Looking for cpu and ram now, ne suggestions? thinking 955 w/ ocz 1600 4gb.

if your thinking 955, why not just spend the extra $15-$20 on the 965? i would stay away from ocz ram. been hearing about lots o problems with that brand lately. corsair, patriot, crucial, etc. lots of other brands to choose from. jmo.

thanks, saw a retailer through amazon selling a 955 for $129, only one left, its gone now . I keep seeing a lot of 955 users able to hit 3.8 and 4.0 w/out any issues, so save myself $20,???. though the 1055t is tempting and only $40 more than the 955. As far as memory, the ocz ddr2 i have on my sig rig has worked great and oc great, except a few games did not like the oc. i still have time to ponder what cpu and mem, thanks again. +1

Ok, so..

Got my board today. Can't POST. Tried all the troubleshooting; different CPU, GPU, cmos reset, 4 pin power, 8 pin power, outside the case, ect.

Gets to 85 on the POST code and restarts with 25/26. Any ideas?


Edit: I am an IDIOT. That "25/26" POST code was my CPU TEMPERATURE!. I forgot to plug the other end of my DVI cable into my monitor because I was using my dvi --> hdmi adapter to play an xbox while I waited on my board. I noticed my HDD activity light doing stuff and thought "that isn't right." and then I saw the cable on my floor.

Now I'm running fine.

LOL,


Can anyone help me with a "2E" LED code??? I constantly get this error code while trying to OC my 1055T. It is really starting to annoy the crap out of me. I can pass all kinds of stress tests but any game will trigger a failed OC and give this "2E" mobo led code. WTH is going on with this?

sorry that I dont have an answer, but just wondering what kind of oc have you been able to achieve with your thuban? Im in the market, so the 1055t looks really tempting, Bing cash-back has it for $175, I also have a $25 gift card from amazon, so I could get it for the same (or a 965 or 955 less the gc). Thanks,

If your wanting easy OC ability go with the 1099t. It's the BE with unlocked multiplier.

a bit out of my price range, might go w/ 965be or 955be if they are the best oc option, but I keep seeing great oc of 1055t stable @ 4.0, so the 1055t is still on my list.

@ DrBrownfinger : What settings are you using to have 4.0 Ghz STABLE ! / Which BIOS version are you using ?
sorry it took so long to post my settings. this is my 24/7 settings, bios v1.7. it is 20hrs stable(had to use this rig so i stopped primeblend before 24hrs). your ram v's will likely be different. also im running trifire so you wont need the extra v's on pci-e voltage. i leave most of ram timings on auto because if i dont, i dont notice a performance difference but i score around 70 points lower on win7 command prompt mem test, and it caused an intermittant stability issue when gaming. i never get over 55c with prime95 or bc2(anyone who plays bc2 should know what i mean). lastly, these are the settings my rig works at. yours WILL be different. this is just a reference point for initial testing for your setup.
