Also, yes this thread is pretty much dead, this board is already 2 generations old. Although it isn't missing much from the 890/990FX boards, since there weren't any big innovations in between generations, aside from thuban/bulldozer support and Sata3/USB3.
But you know what ... it's true that this board is 2 generations old but even now after almost 2 years since I have it, its performance is quite amazing.
I didn't even use all of features this board delivers for example 4xSLI... To be honest I don't even need 4xSLI because my GTX 460 is just so efficient that I can play in every modern game with full details on. Well, it's the other story that I would like to see what this performance is linking 2 of GPU Just to check :>

I thought about buying Thuban for this mobo (sth like 1075T BE) and disable 2 cores. After that overclock it to let say 4.1 GHz, and that's all what I need.
As I recall someone on this forum wrote that Thubans have better IMC. Maybe my Patriots would work more stable then. Because of Deneb's IMC limitations their max potential could also be limited - could it be true?

I can also boot into Windows with 4.2-4.3ghz as a quad, but I need at least 1.5V for 4.3ghz and I'd rather not stress/fry my VRMs again just for that. I do have 4.5ghz as a dual core on my siggy though.
Yeah... luckily I didn't fry my VRMs when I booted my 955 with 4450 MHz But it was one time test. I have 3.9 GHz for everyday use because it just needs 1.37 V to work "awfully" stable

I was thinking about moving on and change my Mugen to W/C system.
Thought about H-70 or maybe even a model you have H-100, but I am not 100% convinced that my temps will be really significantly lower.
When my CPU is idle temperatures varies from 29 to 34*C and buying some decent water cooling system is a cost of (uff I don't know...) ... 400 bucks here in Poland.

Anyway thank you for your answer

I got my h-100 for about $180AU first week it hit aussie land. Gotta say its worth the money lol...looks a mint in my haf x case and it doesnt take up hardly any space as to what my old xigmatek red scorpion cooler did. And its about 20c cooler on idle too.

You know what... It just looks awesome and cool .... and those spinning two fans on the top of your Dominators Really great view. Of course I envy you because you got a lot of space. And this red colour I must say it's sexy LOL

And what are your temp in idle and under full load?

... Now I know what I want to get for Christmass

atm got system at 3.8ghz, idle is around 28-33c, under load around 38-43c, but coming into summer going to get alot hotter lol...

btw i am planning to fix up the cable management once i get my BD chip in there just couldnt wait to get my crosshair v board up and running.

My second rig, a 790fx gd70 checking in here. I installed a 6970 last week. My temps have been really high 66c while gaming so I had to buy a different cooler. I bought an h80 with a push/pull config. I'm idiling at 24-25c and 33-34c under load. I'm very pleased!

Hello ?
I hope someone visits this thread from time to time.
So, I have finally replaced my Ph II 955 C3 to 1095 Thuban - wow! It took me 1 week to assembly all of those parts together ( I thought that a little bit of heatsink lapping would be nice .

And here are results of my work







It's far from perfect but it's flat (I hope).

Everything looks fine but there is one tiny problem:



I would like to know why there are only four cores visible instead of six ?

There is everything fine in BIOS - it shows that I have hexacore CPU but when I boot into Windows 7 SP1 I can't see that all of these cores actually work :/

I don't think it's a matter of BIOS release, because I have got ver. 1.16 and it should support it.

There is probably one, tiny thing that I forgot and ... it's very frustrating not to know what it is

Any help? Please
Oh! And after disabling TurboCache (and C'n'Q) what settings could you recommend me for a start to get this chip to work at 4.0 GHz ?

So in other CPU programs (like CPU-Z) does it state it to have 6cores/6threads on the bottom right? That will confirm how many are actually in use.

As for overclocking it, it should be the same as with your previous quad core, the only thing you have to watch out for is the CPU voltage. I would use 1.4v max, since your Thuban will probably fry the VRMs with higher voltage. Remember tons of other members here have fried their VRMs with their hexas and even quads (me included). Keep temps in check and always listen for the squealing of the VRMs if you are stress testing. If you hear the squealing, stop all stress testing programs and lower your voltage/overclock.

You could alternately disable 2 cores and try to overclock it higher than your previous quad core, but 6 cores running at 3.8ghz-3.9ghz is better than 4 cores running 4ghz+ when it comes to multi-threaded apps.

EDIT: Your lapping on the Mugen 2 looks wonderful! It seems precise and flat, exactly what a lapped surface should be.

Check your ACC settings and make sure everything is set to Auto. Sounds like you have it set to 4 cores.

Unfortunately CPU-Z shows 4 cores:



though, AIDA 64 Extreme shows also 4 cores but it identify CPU like this:



But it still shows only 4 cores :/

Did I miss anything during CPU upgrading process ?
Maybe clear CMOS will help to set it right?
... and i BIOS, after I enter Unlock Cores option there, and Manual, I can see all 6 cores enabled

Right, so hopefully when all six cores will be visible in the system (of course I will disable TurboCache) 1.3 V should be enough to get 3.8 GHz ?

Thanks for the advice and I remember that some of you fried this board "thanks to" Thuban CPU and much overclocking.

Well, I think I'll stick with those 6 cores (when I see them finally in the system
Isn't it strange that my system shows only 4 cores... I mean - maybe this chip is broken down? I just don't know what to think about it...

EDIT: Your lapping on the Mugen 2 looks wonderful! It seems precise and flat, exactly what a lapped surface should be.
Thanks I spent 4 hours in total to lap it. Didn't use any polishing paste or sth like that. I started with lapping water paper with grit 800 then in order 1000, 1200, 1500 and finally 2000
I hope that my final temperature will drop 2 or 3 degrees down because I applied Arctic Silver 5 for that.

Meanwhile, while I was saving my settings in Bios my computer shutted down (unexpectedly) the system for 3 seconds and woke up again :/ Sth is wrong.

Maybe I should update BIOS to its newest release or maybe it's a hardware problem? I just don't get it - everything should be fine. Power plugs 4/8 pins are in my opinion connected properly. I am starting to lose my mind
Any other suggestions?

Edit:

Allright! The solution was as always very simple:



Now I have all six cores visible in Windows 7 U... and you want to know what was the reason I saw only four cores?

Here:



In Boot Advanced options I forgot to change the number from 4 to 6 (I will disable it because it really doesn't affect booting performance, right?)

Oh! I have found the solution here --> http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/86...l#post11316592

Thank you all for your suggestions!!!
