hey guys I now own this board and have it set up and running now but am having problems with crossfire. Is there something special that I am missing specific to this board to get crossfire to work? My sig is up to date with the exception of the dual cards. They are both the same and are the HIS 5770. I have them both set up and show up in device manager and I posted this also in the 5770 club thread and was advised to uninstall everything and reinstall with the 11.4 drivers and the 11.2 cap4 profiles which I did but still do not get crossfire options in CCC . Any suggestions? I know I am missing something silly but just dont see it. any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have resolved the problem and crossfire is now enabled and working. For the record I just uninstalled all the drivers and software and reinstalled the new 11.4 drivers with the 11.2 CAP4 profiles which did not work at first but it was suggested that I try another bridge and switch the position of the cards which I then did and it worked as soon as I booted.

ok off topic, im a gamer and i think i got a ok rig.

Ive got the chance to upgrade my ram. i was thinking getting the same spec as what ive got either in 2x4gb=8gb or 4x4gb=16gb

What would you suggest, would 16gb be better and give me better gaming, also will i be able to carry over ddr3 to the new AM3+ Bulldozer ?

What do you reckon ? is it worth changing, as at present i have 2x2gbx2=8gb OCZ Platinum PC3-16000 DDR3 2000Mhz running DC 1600Mhz 1T ?

Thanks all

Hi guys, I am considering one of these boards. I currently have an Asus M4A78T-E. The rest of the rig is described below. I have gotten it to 3.92 COMPLETELY stable. It will do virtually everything at 3.97. I have read glowing reports on these boards. But looking at the speeds on the first page, only a few are running significantly faster than mine. Do you think one of these would enable much higher speeds?

More then likely no. I would HIGHLY doubt hat you would get any higher speeds buy getting this board compared to your current board.

BD will still use DDR3. I would suggest getting something other than OCZ. 2x4gb kit is the way to go. Try something like G.skill, Corsair, Crucial. I used to be a fan of OCZ but IMO all they are coming out with is crap right now.

Everyone is putting out crap atm to be honest. All the really good memory is gone and not being made anymore. They are focusing on high speed high timings instead of putting out the good high speed low timings stuff. They are trying to get over 2133 and are raising timings to do it.
