post #7111 of 9641
Hey guys. Am looking to finish my WC build with doing the GPU as well. ut am facing a slight problem of GPU placement, with the rad on the rear 120 fan. So is there any way in hell that I can make the second slot run at 16X, rather than just the first and 4th one? Would a PCIE riser card help? Thanks.

Don't forget that Professional and Ultimate can act as a virtual desktop, so it's capable of using Windows XP or any other supported OSes. This is something Home Premium cannot do.

You will have to test it out.. if it doesn't run at the Speed its mention of the specs of those fans... then you would need to directly connect them to your PSU or get a fan controller... and you should be able to get full speed on it.

*Make sure when testing connected directly to the motherboard... that the fans are running at 100%(Go into the Bios in HW monitor, wte its called - don't let the system control your fans)... that will insure the fans to push how its meant... and will also tell you if they run how they are mentioned by its specs

Couldent this cause the fan header to die on the mobo if he was to plug a fan into the mobo fan header and it was drawing to many amps/watts or what ever the power draw is?

Okay well I finally built the board with my system(board came with bios 1.7 installed), decided to insert all my graphic cards

Its all running good.. I have not done any overclock or anything... I just did all windows 7 updates & installed all latest drivers for my cards(having a CF issue, but I'll fix that later on my own)....

Now... I would like to know what software reads correctly the NB temps for this board?
With Everest 5.50.2909 beta it says that its around 55c - 57c is that correct? And what is the average on where its suppose to be or what you guys have as temps?

Everest screenshot: http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/8...i790fxgd70.jpg

Which one is the NB on HWmonitor? http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/1...i790fxgd70.jpg

Just incase the current NB temp is with Air Conditioner turned on.. I'll have to wait till later on today during the day to get my actual NB temps... its around 5am right now here <-- that won't give me real day temps with AC turned off LOL

At least so far I'm liking the board... tomorrow I'll overclock back to my original 4Ghz & play with all the random settings... Mastiffman I'm still not gonna do the 3,000mhz test on the NB just yet.. i want to know if my temps are good currently on them being on stock or if I need to mod it(add some TIM & fans over it) and then i'll test with my 965 & my friends 955 with the 3k on NB.

I'm going to upgrade from onboard audio to an audio card, but I need the space for the PCI-e x1 slot, and as such I need to move my video card from the PCI-e #1 slot to a different slot.

The manual words the arrangement of PCIE slots and their speeds a little glibly, and the fact that someone packed the European version of the manual with my board doesn't help either. I'll quote what it says under "Slots" on page En-3.

- 4 PCI Express Gen2 x16 slots, support CrossFireX(TM) technology
  1. the PCIE x16 slots (PCI_E1 & PCI_E4) support up to PCIE 2.0 x16 speed
  2. the PCIE x16 slots (PCI_E3 & PCI_E5) support up to PCIE 2.0 x8 speed
  3. if you intend to install four expansion cards into all PCIE x16 slots, these four PCIE x16 lanes will auto arrange from x16/ x16/ x0/ x0 to x8/ x8/ x8/ x8
- 1 PCI Express Gen2 x1 slot
- 2 PCI Slots


Now, given that the first two bullet points don't mention a "PCI_E2", I'll assume that "PCI_E2" is the x1 slot, and that "PCI_E4" is the third blue slot away from the CPU, or the second blue slot from the bottom, assuming you have the CPU arranged "On top" inside your tower. Am I on the right track so far? This is the slot I want to plug my singular video card in for maximum speed?
