Hey man Good for you. When I got this board my temps were hitting only around 52-54*. I replaced the TIM and the temps don't go above 43-45* at full load and Idel around 37-39. It's been like for some time now.

Do you have a mouse in your pocket! LOL- Jk!

Well like I said, I have a C3 955. So that may be the difference. So you obviously don't have C3 955 to try out.... Dang it.

I'm pretty certain mine will work as well, I think you might have not given the correct voltage for the NB & CPU/NB - take notice Ram deals here too... you might need to loosen up the timings as well ... make sure you do that before saving in the bios

This is what i have tested on my mobo(its not the same of this thread) if i want to boot with NB at 2800mhz - nb 1.3v - cpu/nb vid 1.3v.... now I have no clue how its on this threads Mobo but I'm pretty certain it should be the similar or same
All setups ar differnet my Friend. and It has nothig to do with the Boards performance. That doesn't make sense being that it can change with BIOS. So if anything, it's the CPU +BIOS that is making the Difference like I said before, I can Cold Boot with BIOS 1.51 beta and 1.10 Official. So the Board is not 'bad from the factory".

Nice brother! That should work out nicely. You like the Board regardless of Video cards.

Would this RAM kit be any good in this board?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148323

I'm looking for ram that will give me max speed but also be able to overclock a bit w/looser timings should I develope a need to loosen them up a bit.

anyone had good luck with this board and the x6 cpus? My board died as soon as my 1055t drew full load

I grabbed a Gigabyte 890fx board while waiting for the RMA, and now that I have a fresh MSI board, it's just sitting in the box.

Those are decent but what's your budget? If you can get some Cas7-8 1600-1800, do that. They will run better with 1600 Cas6 timings.

I have a Set of OCZ Felx ex 2000mhz Cas 8 (4Gb kit) that I run easily at Cas6 1600 with only a .05-.07v bump in volts. And my CPU-NB Freq. is @ 3Ghz. Runs nice. This board can do quite a bit higher frequencies with the right ram and CPU.

well I don't know my budget off hand. ATM it's $0.00 LOL I have to sell some hardware to get some funds for RAM. I don't mind spending more for tighter faster ram and I was looking at OCZ because of your sig'd ram.

Mastiffman easy way to solve this.... is there here any other user with your same 955 C3 ?

PM a few of those guys.. a few pages back

By the way, Since you haven't mentioned.... what Voltages are you using?
changed my question.. noticed you want 3,000 on NB

No offense but I'm not going to be taking any of your advice! lol - I've had this board from the day that it was released and I have built a lot fo this thread personally. "WANT 3ghz CPU-NB?

Dude whats your problem? I'm simply trying to help... well anyways I will be able to test this week a 955BE C3 I forgot a neighbor of mine has it, so I'll test my 965 & his 955 to see if its working. Now if its working I'll record a video, since that is better than a photo.

Anyways like I asked before that you have not answered my question what are your voltages?

I hope it does work for you since you really need it
Well according to what I read from the page at the link you posted it says I should be able to use 3 way and even 4 way sli as long as the PCIe lanes are all on the same chip.

Quote:
Q: I installed two videocards into motherboard, tried everything, but SLI don't appear
A: If you have old motherboard, based on mainstream chipsets like P965, P35, P45, P55 with lack of PCI-express lanes, you should check, which host feed PCI-Express slots for GPU's. For example if you have first PCI-E connected to northbridge PCI-E link, and second one connected to PCI-E from southbridge, then SLI can't be used. Graphics cards should have same host for SLI. For example, we tried three 8800 Ultra's on DFI UT P35 mainboard, but SLI enabled only for first two cards. On this motherboard, third GPU was connected to x1 PCI-Express of southbridge, no matter which slot size is. You can see this by looking pairs of traces from PCI-Express slot running to bridge.

No problem man. It's been something already discussed months ago between myself and others on this thread is all. Everythings Cool. "just calm down and eat some fruit or something". LoL (Mel Gibson in Signs)

The Voltage is not the issue. Like I stated previously, I can set all of the same voltages or even increase them and there are a few BIOS that allow this to happen. It's most likely the CPU. But a tweak in the BIOS coding could solve this IF MSI techs knew what to tweak. But it's not worth contacting them either way.

P.S. Didn't you see me "lol" and my "" in that post? we are cool....
