^ I wish I could say impressive, but I can't. tongue.gif

My tip for you would be to lower your HT Link speed one multiplier down and increase your CPU-NB frequency a few multipliers higher.

Greetings. I just completed my first build in 2 years last night with the 790FX-GD70, Phenom II X2 555 BE, Hyper 212 Evo. I noticed that the heatsink fan is always on max rpm when the systems is on. I have not messed with the bios settings at all. Is there some setting that I need to change in order for the system to regulate the CPU fan speed depending on the load of the CPU? I'm coming from a Core 2 Duo build from 2 years ago that automatically regulated the fan speed. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Btw I have updated my bios to the latest 1.17 (1.H) version.

It only takes a few seconds to find and change the settings in your BIOS.

1) Press Delete during POST to bring up BIOS.
2) Select H/W Monitor
3) Change CPU Smart Fan Target to your desired temperature.
4) Change CPU Min.FAN speed(%) to the lowest speed you prefer.
5) Press F10 to Save Exit out of BIOS.

Play around with what settings you like best and change to whatever suits you. Good luck!

Best I could get with this motherboard was this:

(Note - I was using budget 1333Mhz 9-9-9-24 1.65v RAM at that time. Got it to 1400Mhz 7-7-7-19 1.65v tongue.gif )

If you have the right ram, this motherboard is capable of some very good speeds.

Thanks Kokin for the assistance. I did hit the rep button and I think it worked. I noticed that you had a Phenom II X2 555. Were you able to unlock your cores? If so, have you tried overclocking all 4 cores? Last night I was able to unlock the 2 extra cores on my X2 555. I ran Prime95 for about 8 hours and it looks good. I plan on testing more tonight. After further stress testing I'm planning to overclock and I was just wondering some recommended settings or guidelines on overclocking with this particular motherboard.

Yes, I have unlocked both cores and they are fully functional cores. I have my chip clocked at 4ghz with 1.46v, my CPU-NB is at 2800mhz with 1.33v. I'll take more photos of my BIOS settings when I get home after school/work.

There isn't much to overclocking, but I recommend only changing one setting at a time. So slowly increase your CPU frequency and find the limit, then you can move on to CPU-NB, and finally RAM. What cooler are you using for your CPU? That will decide how far you can overclock your CPU and NB.

Thanks, honestly I was just messing around with it. "IF" I can run it stable, I'll try to turn it up some more. Unfortunately I'm still a newb at the whole overclocking.

Well, I just purchased a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. Also, currently I'm mixing my DDR3 memory. 4gb of PC 1333 (10666) Corsair XMS 3 and 8gb of PC 1333 (10666) GSkill Ripjaw X. I'm not sure what negative effects mixing the memory will have on overclocking.
