Just another quick update, I am now running a 3.8ghz overclock (200x19), rams still at 1066 and NB frequency is at 2600mhz... no matter what I said the HT multi to in bios, anything above 9x still keeps the HT link at 1800mhz? Anybody else having this problem with G16?
Edit: Since realised it is indeed a G16 bug....
this boards bios disappoints, I really think the way foxconn ditched support is disgusting, because its a monster clocker. I'm looking around at AMD chipsets now, have my eye on a 790gp-ds4h and a A79A-S. Both of these boards have thuban support
I enjoyed o'cing with this board, but it makes more sense for me to go an amd chipset and crossfire my 4870 rather than blowing budget on a new pair of 460's.
The lack of voltage adjustment on the destroyer for the nb-cpu has been annoying, as too the broken HT multi. I really like the idea of the A79A-S, as it is close to the destroyer, raw oc power is plentiful as are pcie slots, however I do know this board to also have bios bugs and no NB voltage adjustment.
The 790gp-ds4h however is a reliable board with all the adequate features and less flawed bios, but the layout sucks.
I wanna stick with foxconn but these generation of mobos are just flawed
As for the high MCP temps, I was seeing 60 degrees +... I currently run my pc in a thermaltake M9, with all cables hidden or moved to avoid disrupting airflow. I decided today to stick another 12cm fan I had lying around, on the window as an intake. Its blowing directly on the mcp and graphics card, so I was hoping for maybe a drop of about 5 degrees or so. Turned the pc on, did some stress testing, checked temps and theyd dropped 15 degrees!Edited by 2khamisj - 8/13/10 at 5:33pm
