1090t, clocked at 4.2 with 20x multi. cpu volt 1.505 cpu vdd 1.3250 or so. nb 1.25 or 1.3, ram 1.7 i also adjusted cpu/nb... funny thing was the computer was still stress testing until i pulled the plug to blow out the fire. i beleive the board says rev 1.0, manufactured sept 09 according the serial. been running perfectly okay with my 240 at the exactly same voltages for several months...
think they'll warranty it?

I don't believe I have read of anyone RMA'ing over this but IMO based on my experience with MSI and RMA's it certainly cannot hurt to try and chances are they will warranty it

Just be sure to take care in packaging if you do RMA it

what exactly burnt up? those voltages aren't really that high. i run mine at 1.47cpu 1.400cpu-vdd for 4050mhz and 1.53cpu 1.400cpu-vdd for 4.2ghz. i've gotten trough 12hours of prime on the 4050mhz setting and 8hours on the 4.2. i couldn't get this thing stable without touching the vdd setting.

this scares me as mine is a rev 1.0. O well I guess that's what warranties are for

Hello,

I am planning on picking up this MB for the Phenom II X 4 965 and I am concerned if the Scythe SCMG-2100 Sleeve CPU Cooler will be blocking the memory slots. If so, what is the vertical clearance before the memory stick is blocked?

Does anyone have experience with the MB and that cooler?

Thanks guys!

I pretty much have one of the biggest cpu cooler/heatsink on this club... hehee my cooler covers entirely my ram slots(i can't even see them)... but it doesn't bother me at all.... I'm lucky my rams are not like some Corsair rams that have tall heat spreaders like the ones that aren't removable(unless you take remove entirely the the heatspreader)....


but if you have the type of rams on which you can remove the top part of the heatspreader.. example like these corsairs:

then its not an issue... when having a big cpu cooler/heatsink

That is all up to your own decision.

Sendblink, I've noticed most people are running 4 sticks of 2GB ram each. How come not 2 sticks of 4gb? Does the mobo have trouble with the 4GB sticks?

that's up to everyone for their own choices when buying stuff... my situation it was because my rams came from a mobo combo I had bought last year(of another mobo).... so in other words it came in a combo so i didn't have much choices(4gb sticks prices where much more higher last year too, compared to right now recently) lol

Anyways... please since you are new to the forums.... go to the top:
USER CP
Then on the left-side
System Information > Add System

And please fill in your whole computer specs hardware... so you get up in here like everyone else
