^That's a bad example because only 2 cores are active, but I did run it at full load on all six cores at 5100mhz @ 1.80v iirc.

Wowww wuut, you think that if you have a "newer" 790fx board, that they made improvements to the vrms? I'm stuck at a 3.7ghz clock because I'm afraid to go higher than 1.47v.. but would like to try and get more power out of the system.

What do you think? Temps aren't a problem, I load at around 48C currently

I killed mine with 3.8Ghz / 1.375v. They also stopped making this board in ~'07-'08. Any boards from then would just be old stock being resold, the tech wouldn't be any different.

I would take the VRM heatsink off and make sure that it's making good contact with the vrm's before trying to push a high OC on this board.

I've pushed up to 1.60v in to my 720 before, and ran 1.55v for a while for 24/7 use without any issues, however, a 720 is no 1090T. I do monitor temps quite a bit though especially when reaching max OC. My NB only got to ~54C with 2 video cards in place. MB temp only gets to ~44C.

As for revisions and build dates, my board is rev. 1.0 and I bought it March of 2009. So far this has been a great board. I love all of the options in the BIOS, and now theres even more since I updated to the 1.G (1.16) BIOS.
Funny enough I was reading a review about the crosshair III a while back and they called the GD70 an inferior board. Yet this board has more PCIe slots, a more extensive BIOS and most importantly, my GD70 still works yet my Crosshair III needs to be RMA'd because it doesnt.

Yeah this board got a lot of beef because it was blowing up when Thubans were put into it, yet it's still one of the best of the 700/800 series motherboards. The features in the BIOS and motherboard alone already justify the (not so high) price of the board, more so now when it's very cheap to get it used. Looks-wise it's also very attractive, but that's subjective.

Hello everyone
Im joining the game quite late but better late than never.
I had been roaming the threads and found out about the vrm problem with this board. that worries me alot and i want to take every preventive measure possible to avoid early death. currently im running an unlocked phenom x2 as a quad and oced it to 3.6 ghz but i wanted more core power so i ordered a 960t with the hope of getting 6. anyway the problem seems prominent with 6 cores.

im curious though as to why so many people bought this board despite its vrm issue. is it because it wasnt widely known yet? or was it just a small number of cases. when i bought this board it was an impulse buy. got it at ncix for 30 bucks and when i saw what it had i couldnt pass it up.

well my 960t should arrive within the week but until then if anyone could help me prepare that would be much appreciated.

First of all, welcome to the thread and you will definitely love this board!wink.gif

The problem is that this board was released a year before the Thubans (hexacores) even came out, so this board was designed for dual/quad cores. However, it can support hexacores with medium overclocking as it would fry if too much voltage was used for overclocking. If you do get a successful hexacore, I suggest you keep the CPU voltage between 1.4-1.45v as your max. If you feel like you want to push it more, then 1.5v should be your absolute max. Any more than this has resulted in dead VRMs over a period of time for many of the members here and of other motherboards. You will typically reach 3.8ghz-4.2ghz with those voltages as each CPU has its own limits.

If you don't really need the cores for multi-threaded applications like encoding, then keep the 960T as a quad core and overclock the crap out of it! The 960T is a locked Thuban and Thubans have been known to overclock pretty high compared to their quad core/Deneb siblings. If all you do is play games, web surf, watch videos, etc. you don't need much more than a quad core, even if you like to multi-task a lot.

thanks for the advice and appreciate the warm welcome. I am a video editor and i use after effects alot as well as play game so the core count would help me. ive found that i couldnt overclock my phenom 560 higher than 3.6 ghz because it would become unstable. it seems though that the voltage control is all greyed out as auto and i cant seem to be able to change it. ive tried -+ keys and arrow keys, nothing seems to work. i dont know if bios ver affects this. i cant remember my bios ver and i cant check right now because im away from home but as soon as im back ill give it a check.

That sounds right around the limits of the stock voltage, depending on what stock voltage you get (normally around 1.35v-1.4v). The PhenomII x2 560 is a revision C2 CPU, so it runs hotter and does not overclock as well as the newer C3 chips. I used to own an old C2 955 and it would only reach 3.8ghz-4ghz at over 1.5v, but with my 555/unlocked B55, it does up to 4.1-4.2ghz at around 1.5v. This board has a lot of options for overclocking and tweaking, so I find it weird that the options are grayed out.

You may want to update your BIOS to a version that supports the 960T, though there hasn't been any updated versions out lately, so I would suggest the 1.G/1.16 BIOS as it's what I've been using for over a year now and it's been the best one to date, at least compared to about 10 or so other BIOS versions I've tried in the past.
