That's not true.

It's entirely dependent on the chip's IMC. I've seen 1940Mhz+ on this board with simple air setups.

I've gotten something pretty much similar to your issue before but can't remember which bios gave me that(not sure if its the most recent or one of the latest ones).. all i remember was if I completely power off my computer & after a couple of hours turn it back on I was getting that crap... even if I unplugged the computer to move it somewhere else it happened as well... I tried troubleshooting tons of stuff(cables unplugging and plugging them again, changing overclock settings .. even at stock etc - it would always happen no matter what) ... then I realized I had installed a bios recently.. so decided to test an older one I had 1.4 and it stopped happening.

If changing the bios doesn't fix it.. you may try replacing the bios battery
I replaced battery, but haven't tested it since. If it does it again, i will look for which BIOS I have, and if there is a new one, if not, i will go back one and try that. Thanks/

Hopefully starting it now with that new battery it gets fixed.... if not testing out the latest bios.. but if it still happens... then try an older bios I just tested 1.4 and its still fine on my side.

If all fails.... crap may be your mobo actually does have a real hardware issue - Replacement, Contacting support or RMA would be the only way for a fixing

Well, I had 1F, and they released 1G, so Im gonan try that, if no go, Ill try 1E. I am messign with drive strength options, AND I had no problem before then at all, so I think that might be part of problem. So, I made some slight adjustments, I just wish I knew what 'AUTO' setting was so I could make appropriate adjustments. Some of them have 0.75x first, then 1.0x, 1.25x, 1.5x... Some start at 1.0x, then 1.25x, etc... so I ASSUME, AUTO will choose smallest value. SO, if smallest value is 0.75x, I boost those to 1.0x, and what options start at 1.0x, I have adjusted to 1.25x, after flash and full settings re-do, it posted perfect, AND actually posted faster than normal, even tho all settings are matching, except slight drive strength adjustments like I said... So I think I might have gotten her, but I do NOT know yet. I need this setup to last til Bulldozer gets here,

i agree. i remember seeing a cpu-z screenshot with the ram at 2000mhz with a 965 c3 and 790fx-gd70. if i can remember where i saw it, i'll post it. i know i've seen a few people with thubans running 2000mhz ram with this mobo. msi does say it can do 2133mhz.

that's great.... well shut it off for hours, hopefully tomorrow it turns on perfectly fine with no issues

hahaha *bulldozer same here... I hope the prices go fair enough on both the cpu & mobo's

Im worried about what small amount of mobos might be available at launch.

And no, Im not gonna turn my computer off for hours It can wait til I go to bed tonight, lol, its running good and strong, I MIGHT turn it off for 30 mins or so...

Im looking forward to what DFI MIGHT do with BD and of course see what MSI has worked up.

guys, I'm seriously considering buying this mobo as its on sale here for 130$ .
But I have heard some bad news about it being very incompatible with phenom II X6 and having weak VRMs and them frying up easily with a mere oc.
my questions :

1.does this mobo really have problem with X6 ??

2.what about weak VRM ?? if I cant get the same oc as my current old mobo, then it would be really disappointing !

3. is the rumor about this board's vrm frying up quite easily real ??

4. I heard this mobo can't use crossfire on win 7 ?? (Is this a joke or real )

edit: I heard VRM easily fry up when used with phenom X6 which is the main reason that worried me quite abit .... anyone tested this with phenom x6 ?

THX in advance

I humbly request stability testing. Yes it may run @ that speed but what is the sacrifice? Can you still OC the NB,(if not it's not worth it) can you still OC the core? I know it can and has been done but I have yet to this day seem a decent overclock on one of those that are running the memory that high and it be stable.

I really will not ever talk about bench clocks because to me they are worthless. If I can not run it 24/7/365 with out the BSOD then it does me no good. That is one of the reasons I run 4Ghz. Yes I can run higher and yes it is moderately stable but I want complete stability and will settle for nothing less.

update on my flaming boards: i'm pretty sure it was my cheapo psu that caused the fire. on 12 v it sometimes read 14v instead. now with my antec 750 it reads 12.5v on program. these are both on stock speed but under stress. still i'm not going to oc on this board with x6. maybe if i go back to x2 and move my x6 to elsewhere. guess lesson learned is to always purchase quality psu.
