I'm running an X-Fi PCIe 1x in my bottom slot closest to my PSU in my system. It's all in the sig. I get EMI interfearance from my GPU's in my sound though, be it onboard or the X-Fi :sozo:nocticed mostly when I'm f@h

I've been following this thread for tips on my 790fx-gd70 MB, and I could use some help. Im thinking on buying an OCZ Vetex 2 240gb SSD. Anyone know how does OCZ Vertex 2 work with this motherboard? Is it easy to get it working?

Thanks in advance.

i'm not overclocking at all, just using default "auto" settings in BIOS.

should i change any DDR or NB voltages or anything else?

i ask because i'm getting strange lag in BFBC2:

the longer i play Battlefield Bad Company 2, the more local "lagg" i may experience. by local lagg (yes, an extra "g"), i mean my display may get somewhat skippy and my input control (mouse to on-screen movement sync) may "gap" every couple of seconds. for example, if i am slowly moving my mouse upward, the display will reflect the upward input smoothly for 1-2 seconds, freeze for a brief moment, then continue reflecting the upward input smoothly for another 1-2 seconds, freeze for a brief moment, repeat...

i say "may" because the lag may or may not happen. sometimes i can play for hours without any issues, while other times the lag occurs within ~10 minutes after launching the game. keep in mind i always reboot my system before launching the game.

i thought the problem may have been bogging software, so the other day i formatted the single hard drive Windows 7 was installed on and reinstalled Windows 7 on two different hard drives in a RAID 0 setup. lag still happens.

i thought the problem may have been outdated/bad drivers, so i manually installed the latest drivers for all hardware in and outside my system, including the mobo's NB/SB. lag still happens.

i thought the problem may have been an issue with the BIOS, so i updated it to the latest version. tried fail-safe defaults, optimized defaults, and custom BIOS settings. lag still happens.

that's why i'm now wondering if the problem has something to do with voltages.

i play @ my monitor's native resolution 1680x1050.

my system specs are as follows:

GPU:
CrossFire 2X 4890 1GB

CPU:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 QC 3.4GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103692

RAM:
8GB (4 x 2GB) G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR3 1600 9-9-9-24-2N
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231277

PSU:
Corsair 750TX (750W)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82e16817139006

suggestions?
i'm quoting myself so those unfamiliar with my issue can read about it easily

i made some changes that seemed to get rid of the skippy lag but now my mouse input feels a bit sluggish, as if there's a very minor but noticeable delay in the game. FPS is always between 70 and 110. here are the changes i made:

1) CPU-NB Voltage from Auto (1.1) to 1.2

2) DRAM Voltage from Auto (1.60) to 1.65

3) FSB/DRAM Frequency (MHz) from Auto (1333) to 1:4 (1600)

4) Advance DRAM Configuration (i manually set the timings to my memory's defaults in case Auto was setting them incorrectly):
DRAM Timing Mode: Both
CAS Latency (CL): 9
tRCD: 9
tRP: 9
tRAS: 24

thoughts?

I am at a wall where I sit that I cant take my ram up to the next divider (~2133 would be the speed) but am very happy here. even if I raised the ram speed I would not see much improvement as far as throughput due to the NB and FSB bottleneck.

Not to interrupt, but I'd like to first welcome myself to OCN.

I've been trying to get a definite answer from all across the web on a decent cooler to use on the GD70 that won't block ANY RAM slots. I'm running 12gb of DDR3-1333, so I need every single one of them.

The only answers I've heard have been, "well, this looks really thin... it might work", and "the H50 sucks! omgz!" from TomsHardware. I figured it was time to grab an account over here and get a definate answer.

So here I am. What aftermarket CPU coolers are you guys using? I've been reading through the 600 pages of replies here, but they're mostly on OC results. I've been looking at the MUX-120 for a while to replace my Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer (which is mounted backwards), but I want to be certain that it will work. I'm also really thinking about getting an H50 in push-pull with two decent aftermarket fans. Any suggestions other than these? Much appreciated.

Oh, and because everyone likes new pictures...

Sorry for the poor picture quality... those were taken before I got my 8GB G.Skill Sniper Kit. Oh, and ignore the timestamp on them...
I'll have my specs in my signature in no time.

Exactly my point. Thank you. I hate people who bash on the sealed watercoolers... Nice case selection, by the way...

So would the MUX-120 fit on a setup with 4 sticks of RAM?
