yeah true, nvidia just dropped the ball with the current fermi chips with production, amd saw this and went hard on the 5x00 cards securing every $ price point where nvidia didnt have a chance with price/performance with the 200 series cards. With ATI ahead by 6 months, nvidia is till trying to get all their cards out into the wild while amd is reaping the benifits of cheaper cards and while working on the 6x00 cards due this year which will be at least 20% faster than the fermi 480 and at least $100 to $150 cheaper than the 480 cards, also amd has mapped out its 7x00 cards for next year too, which is supposed to have a new achitechture and again faster than the 6x00 cards. So not only will amd be ahead by a whole generation by the end of this year. Nvidia is losing money on every fermi card sold currently

i hate apple products, i do the rma's for my work and apple, hp and nintendo are the worst companies to deal with. Apple they know everything about you the second you start using itunes, so you can't get around warranty dates if nessesary as they know when you started using itunes and your ipod/phone. Nintendo have a very short time you can get a return for a product, 7 days from date of purchase and then 7 days for me to get the product back to nintendo. and well hp just has the most rediculus tech support on the planet, they treat everyone like they are idiots even tho you might be a tech yourself as i am. you might have a problem like a faulty LCD panel, they want you to take the battery out, hold down this button for x seconds, they put battery back in, unplug the power cable, put it back it, then try do a factory restore on it, just to check its not anything else...tho we all know its just a faulty panel...thats their answer for everything....do a restore, do a restore lalala alala. lol...takes a week just to get a RA number from them.

Congrats! If you would, could you confirm whether or not your revision 1.1 board has washers under the chipset heatsink spring screws on the back?

Hi folks,

I read thru a good 150 pages of this thread, and I figure, the best way is to just ask.

I have g.skill f3-12800cl9d-4gbrl from Newegg.
AMD Phenom II X4 C3 965 Black
Corsair TX 750 W 80 plus

POST works fine. Windows 7 blue screens when I try to install with a variety of errors like IRQ_blah, MEMORY_blah, etc.
LInux kernel panics trying to load up an installation CD, so I am thinking these g.skills are the culprit.

Can I get this rig stable with these DIMMS? What should I put in the Cell setup? Lots of threads point to upping the voltage, and I have tried a variety of settings. Please help.

Just lower the RAM... example like 800Mhz.... try that if not.. then there is some other odd reason

Try Changing only these settings to start:

1. CPU-NB Multiplier to x13
2. Memory Strap to 1:4 (=1600mhz)
3. (In Advanced Dram Configuration) Switch:
.... A. DCT mode to "Both"
.... B. Drive Strengths Section to "Both"
.... C. Advanced Dram Section to "Both"
.... D. Bank interleaving to "Disable"
4. HT link Multiplier to x10
5. CPU-NB Voltage (NOT, I repeat, NOT the CPU-NB VDD Voltage) to 1.25v
6. CPU DDR-PHY Voltage to 1.25v
7. Dram Voltage to 1.50v-1.55v
8. NB Chipset Voltage to 1.25v
9. Ht Link Voltage to 1.28-1.30v (Some GD70's Vary with Different ram)
10. Spread Spectrum to "Disable" UNLESS You're Local City has Abnormal issues with EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference....)

Let us know how these Settings work.... .

Is there a guide for OC'ing that is specific to this mobo? The other guides don't help much since whatever they're talking about doesn't necessarily match up with what I see in the bios and I'm clueless. Looking for a step-by-step for this mobo + Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz.

Thx!
