That is VERY NICE!!! I'm looking forward to getting one. Well any 6 core really just for the fact of the Better IMC's.

You bet. Try 1.25-1.28v for the NB Chipset and don't worry abuot frying it as long as your temps are good. reasons?

1. I've had mine as high as 1.475v for a few weeks when I first got the board. I had an 810 and was cranking the HTRC.
2. It's under warranty!?

new amd cpu's reviewed. they have a screen shot of a 4.2ghz oc with a 6 minute prime run. they claim its 100% stable. apparently thats all it takes at guru3d.

i cant get mine to boot with the cpu-nb at 3300mhz. no problem at 3200mhz, either i hit my max fsb (330) or the cpu-nb is at its limit. anything over 4.1ghz on the cpu takes a major bump in voltage it seems. still getting it fine tuned.

That's a good idea, but everything was working fine a moment earlier. I will try flashing back to E tonight. Fingers crossed.

not bad considering they got a 178, 52, and what looks like 26. I still know they are binned for tryouts soooooo.........

No point in getting a 970, its just a 965 with a multi boost and price increase, especially since AM3+ (Bulldozer) is around the corner

Ok...

I have been scratching my head for an hour now trying o figure where I should place this post. Moderators... please feel free to move it if I am in the wrong place.

I can only make one upgrade at this time. I am considering changing either my (check siggy/system for details):

- MoBo -> to ASUS Crosshair (least likely since the 790fx-gd70 is still a good pick)
- Memory -> I feel they are holding me back in my OC'ing attempts
- Cooling -> Thinking of water cooling
- CPU -> Almost bought the AMD 1055 today

I am leaning towards memory and CPU. Presently I see a few BSOD's when attempting to go over 3.8 Ghz OC which leads me to believe my memory may be in need of upfrading. If I go this route, I need low profiles.

I am just a bit stumped right now. Help???
