It starts with the motherboard whining under load, so if you install a hexacore and you get whining while stress testing stop the test and shut down your computer and let things cool down.
Sorry to hear that. Any idea as to why that may have happened? Would be interesting to see what happens bu re-installing your old CPU.

I see you now have an awesome board! That may be my next purchase down the line.

@antuk15: Thanks for the info. I'll make sure I listen carefully for that sound when stress testing.

And from where can I disable this? And what effect does that have?

Also, I need the combination to be able to sustain loads for long since I fold on that rig so its at 100% load 24 hours a day.

Basically when you over clock the Hexa cores they draw/require more power then the GD70's 4-phase power system can supply = Popped VRM's.

And yes, the Crosshair Extreme is an awesome bit of kit

Yeah, thats what it seems. Most poeple who've OC'ed and run it full load for long have ruined their motherboards. I don't wanna risk it since buying a new motherboard just short of bulldozer is a waste. I'm gonna just stick with the 965 until bulldozer, i guess.

Should be all we need Im MORE then happy enough with my x4 on ddr3 1600.

The phase adjustments should be in the BIOS hardware monitor or w/e, somewhere

I too thank you guys for your reply about hexa-core .. I too got a golden deal on this board but now gonna drop it. Just short of bulldozer, a mobo upgrade is not really a good brain wave ^^ . Not mention I dont know if it will last 5 min under my 1090 or not !
post #8427 of 9641
I had a question for everyone out there....

What do you think is preferable for this motherboard?

4 2gig ram sticks all slots used

or 2 4g ram sticks 2 slots used..

Thank you for your input!!!!

Buy 2 x 4gb .. why? Simple... then later on buy 2 x 4gb you get 16gb

This way you actually save money.

but if its out of your budget... then get 4 x 2gb

Well I currently have the 4 2 gig OCZ 1600 BE as seen in signature. But I was under the impression it was best to use 2 slots rather than the 4 because it gets cranked down?

I use all 4 slots for 8GB of RAM, and all I did was change the divider for 1600 and its worked, BUT, I had some stability probs I had to work out with timings and drive strengths. Im lucky to be 1600 stable, all 4 dimms, @ 8-8-8-24-1t, depending on your mobo, CPU and RAM specifically, you might need to go 9-9-9-27 type of timings, or just downclock them on the 1333 divider. 1333 at 7-7-7 is the same as 1600 at 9-9-9... Both, difference wise, is minimal. You might open a 1GB rar file 1 sec faster at 1600... lol

BTW, Im using the Corsair Dominators AMD (green heatsink) version 8GB kit, 4x2GB. Not the greatest ddr3 kit, given its 1333 at 9-9-9-24 stock, BUT, like I said, I am 1600 stable with tighter timings, thanks to drive strength options I THINK, LOL...
