Stock timings are only way to go for RAM, which is 9-9-9-27... I tried 8-8-8-24, no go, BSOD at Windows logon. So far, so good! I am extremely happy with this board. Only thing I don't like is it slack of hardware monitoring. I get the 4 cores, gpu core, and hdd temps, but that's it. No PSU voltages, etc...
Lack of hardware monitoring???



BTW If you have the same ram as me you should be able to run 9-9-9-21-1T as thats what I am at @ 1600

CPU-Z validation?

I have run mine up to 2600, stable.

What type of hardware monitoring is it lacking?

I hate to be a PITA but that's not validated.

NB should be 2800 or so and get you ram to 9-9-9-21-1T

well, the new power supply is in.. (giving the ocz 700w a second chance) and got a 4890 vapor-x rather than the 4870 x2. Memory seems to be a problem. Changed to the 7/7/7/24 1.8v for the sticks I got, but still pulling the 533 mhz speeds from bios and cpu-id.
I was going to wait till I got the memory straight and then update the bios. But am I correct to hear the 1.63 beta helps with the 1600 memory issues? ( and is unlock friendly)
* factory bios 1.4

edit. Mem solid at 1600 mhz after adjusting multiplier to 1/4. Mem adjusted to 1648Mhz; core multiplier x16.5, HT Ref Clock 206 Mhz, stable at 3,399. Any more word on the 1.63 bios?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
edit: after getting msihq tools to accept the beta bios after downloading the official 1.5 bios and extracting the bios from the rar file replacing it with the beta154 drivers. Did the nasty in dos after running memtest for a bit... shut her off after it went into post after the reboot then pulled power from case and took the side off. Held the power button down to discharge capacitors and pressed the Clr CMOS button near the overclock dial. Rebooted and went into the bios and set the biod setting to "used fail safe defaults" (and the turned off the boot picky) then saved the settings and restarted. Went right back into the bios on restrart and set the fsb/ddr to 1/4 for memory at 1600 mhz and then set the advanced clock calibration setting to "auto" and saved and restarted. unlocked the 4th core brb with some gentle overclock results. I am hoping to have the 3.4Ghz rock stable with 4 cores and then play some from there.


next is seeing if i can run steady at 16.5x 206 life before, woo hoo!!!



ok i have 4 cores running at 3.6Ghz 200x18 and 1.482 volts on the cores. been stable so far and now time to start the cpu intensive apps.

Oh I'm sorry thats not a validated CPU-Z. I can say without problem that I snapped it here, live, on my PhII when I got it to boot4 Ghz the once. Soon as it hit OCCT Linpack, it BSOD'd tho. According to my BIOS, the NB freq. should be equal or less than the HTT link. If I run both at stock 2000, is there anything wrong? Cause as of right now, I'm linpack stable @ 3.8, 1.4vcore, and 2000Mhz on nb and htt. I don't recall being able to push either past 2400, I will look again for sure. This mobo is GREAT! BTW! What vcore am I looking at for stable 4ghz based on other peoples results? I'm getting 55C at 100% load at 3.8ghz, 1.4vcore. Is up to 1.5v considered safe? MY old 939 would yawn up to 1.6vcore. That's the only other REAL OC experience I have to go off of.

Just got my new system built up with this board, my first AMD build

I'm quite excited, can't wait to put this CPU through it's paces.

Can anybody reccommend a good temp monitor for these chips/board?

Thanks

Hello all! first post...

I'm considering this board for my new build and had a few questions that I can't seem to find answers for...

I'm building an all-in-one PC that will double as my media server and gaming machine. I'm planning on using 4 of the 6 SATA ports on the SB750 in raid 5 for my media.

I'd like to use SATA 7 and 8 in raid 0 for my main drive (os/programs)...I've stumbled across information (can't remember where) giving me the impression that it wouldn't be possible...Can someone confirm this is ok?
