Only the Intel Z77 boards allow Raid with TRIM.

My preference would be to stick to a single larger drive. Raid would only increase boot time and would not net you any real world performance difference, unless you're constantly moving big files. Even if you want to stick with RAID, I would return these and go for a 6GB/s drive (assuming your new motherboard supports it), as it will be about as fast as 2x 3GB/s drives in Raid0.

Hello,
I want to start overclocking my Phenon X4 955 in my 790FX-GD70, but I have no experience yet.
My first very careful tries show that with the stock cooler the temperatures go up quickly with modest overclock.
It is often said and clear from this experience that the stock cooler is quite insufficient.
After reading about non-stock coolers I quite like the Gelid Tranquillo rev2. for modest overclocking.
However, I have no experience yet with replacing the stock cooler.

I have been doing some measuring and found the following:
Between the DrMOS and the RAM there is 9,8 cm space.
The stock cooler uses 9,3 cm of that width.
The specs of the tranquillo can be found at http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1681/1/
The RAM modules (all 4 in use) are 5,7 cm high measured from the MB and 5,0 cm high measured from the insertion point.
This seems insufficient to actually fit this Tranquillo cooler, because of the RAM.
Note that I have an P280, so ample space in height.

MSI does not seem to specify what cpu coolers will typically fit.
Despite searching in nearly 1000 posts, I can hardly find here what cpu-coolers fit in this cramped board.
But people are overclocking!
Who can tell from experience what options I have for a cpu cooler?

Maybe you could check this one Scythe "Grand Kama Cross Rev.B" CPU Cooler ?

I had sth like this one Scythe "Mugen 3 Rev.B" CPU Cooler though it was Scythe Mugen 2 and it was huge cooler I must say, but it fitted quite nice. I had even high profile Patriot RAM sticks and nonetheless it had fitted with slot 3 and 4 occupied.
I can only recommend you Scythe coolers because I know their capabilities during overclocking process.

it's my first steps

I'm overclocking 955 BE only raised Cpu ratio x18 (3.6Mhz) and cpu VDD 1.3750 could i raise smth else ?

i'm interested: would i raise CPU FSB & CPU NB & HT LINK ? will those give some good result ? and what is best OC for my setup (for 24/7) ?

Hello !

I m a owner too, of msi 790fx-gd70 ,and I have no problems as far as now !

So I would like to ask , if anyone have done to put 16Gb on board and running without problems ?

I am intent to running multiple os(host) on windows and i need to upgrade from 4 Gb (http://www.memorycusa.com/products/description/4GB_GeIL_DDR3_1333MHz_Value_Dual_Channel_kit-7_7_7_24-PC3_10660/index.html) to 16Gb.

1)Is it better to buy 4 dims of 4Gb each and fill up, all the 4 mobo slots ? or to buy 2 dims of 8Gb each and fill up only the 2 slots of mobo ?

2)has anyone try to expand beyond 16 Gb this msi board ?

3)I have read many posts inside this thread , but not everything about problems rising after installing 16 Gb on this board...

My set up is an AMD Phenom II X4 955 with 4Gb physical memory and ATI 5770 with an Enermax 550 watt psu with 2hdd.
I don't care for today games, as I m playing older games when i have some free time ... wink.gif

So I m thinking between 2 options :

first: to buy 2 dims of 8 Gb each

second : to buy 4 dims of 4gb each

what are you suggesting me ? which set up could be working without problems ... ?

My bios is running 1.3 version (i haven't flash it yet).

I will be grateful for any help !

Thank you in advance

16 gb's is the maximum that is supported by that board. My opinion, 2 x 8 would be better.
Great old board have fun !

I built using this board originally in '09 using 4gb ram. I now have upgraded to a set of 4x4gb CML16GX3M4A1600C9B DDRIII

I cannot get it to run stable at 1600. I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge about the configuration needed to get this ram to run at the advertised speeds.. or even faster if possible.

Thanks!

You have to understand that anything over 1333 mhz is considered an overclock on that setup. Filling all four slots makes it more difficult for the system to run ram at higher speeds.
Can I ask what processor you are using? I'm betting it's C2 revision chip which is less capable than the C3's at getting higher clocks on the ram.
It was my experience that the top speed i could get from my C2 chip with 2X2gb sticks was about 1760 mhz. I never tried filling all 4 slots however. Having said that, you can get about the same performance out of tighter timings anyway .
