I read somewhere that if you use slots 1 and 3, you get x16-x1, not x16-x8.
You can lock the PCI-E settings how you want them in bios. Your choice X16- X16 X1 or X16 X8 X8. I have read before though that if you want to use slots 1 & 3 that you will need an extra long bridge. Can't help on the heat issue's I'm looking into going crossfire myself. 5850's run pretty cool though I can't imagine it being much of a problom as long as there is good airflow in the case.

I read somewhere that if you use slots 1 and 3, you get x16-x1, not x16-x8.
if you look at your manual it gives u different scenarios to let u know how it works.. i only have 1 5850 atm (what do u need 2 for lol) but it's OC'd nicely and it stays around 65 full load thats with just AS5. 860/1250 for now not too much.

as for the space yea i hear it's tight this thing is HUGE as is so im assuming either u don't have HDD's down low or u have lots of space either way u could simply rig active cooling from the front sections of case to the Vcard.

i have a Double slim fan that uses the pci slot above the second PCIE one is on a swivel so i have it pumping into the back (top) of gpu and the other sucks out the rear pci slot. course i stuck another fan on the NB to be safe too.
otherwise u shouldn't have issues

I'll try putting in the second card in slot 2 and see what kind of temps I get. After taking a closer look in the case, there will be a little more room between the two cards than I first thought. And I have two fans blowing air to the GPU and out the back. I'll try the external air duct too and see if that helps.

don't forget to at least re-apply paste (oem is always crap) i was idle 42c avg now its 35c on standard clocks.

you honestly think the benefits are worth the 2nd card? (I honestly haven't put much thought into it)

Yeah, I know there's probably no need to go CF, but I'm obsessive. I wasn't able to afford an SSD and a second card for this build back when I was planning it. I finally got the SSD and this card is the only thing left. It's the Whale to my Ahab.

thats at 19x215
4085mhz
1723mhz

7759 qpi link

also im still not done trying to find stable lower volts just haven't...



right now thats the highest i can go... any higher and i need more volts on cpu and temps go up..

i can run 1.45 for both cpu and QPI 200x21 (4.2) but temps are no good...
also multiplyer on QPI and ram are the limiter so that's why i tried a higher bclck...

any advice TIA!!!
pretty stable - 40 passes IBT MAX ram usage.
Linx Max ram 20 passes
36h prime

I think My qpi is low... @1.26
If I got it up to 1.45 or 1.6 is there any trouble

I want to try everything before doing this:

Quote:
Poorly fitted CPU cooler ( too much tension, not enough tension, uneven tension)

Fix: Adjust tension of aftermarket cooler, Test with stock cooler, reseat CPU and cooler.


Bent CPU socket pins. (damaged board, poor installation, poor cooler tension, uneven pressure etc)

Fix: Inspect CPU socket for bent pins, some users have been able to straighten the bent pins and solve the problem. Otherwise if its too badly damaged you might need to RMA the board. (Note: Asus might refuse RMA if bent pins were caused by user)


Faulty ram

Fix: Test each stick individually(and in each slot) to see if it boots. Run memtest. Test with another memory kit if possible.


Insufficient voltage

Fix: Set "Dram bus voltage" to 1.64v (or whatever your memory spec says) and set QPI/Dram voltage to max 1.35v (Max 1.35v is recommended for users with 12 Gigs and/or running at speeds of 1600Mhz or higher. If running under 1600Mhz with 6 Gigs you may only need 1.25v QPI/Dram voltage. Another option is to set XMP profile in the bios.


Wrong windows version:

Fix: Some new builders are unaware of limitations using 32 bit Windows. Windows 32 bit can only recognize and address under 4 GBs of system memory. Install 64 bit version of windows.


Short Circuit: (with some aftermarket coolers/cases)

Fix: The backplate of some aftermarket coolers touch the motherboard tray causing a short circuit. Test with stock cooler or make adjustments.


Faulty motherboard

Fix: Least likely cause but if all other fixes have been tried RMA the motherboard

Hi

Been lurking on here the past few weeks, and just started to systematically work my way through xmisery's settings (starting with 3.6 w/o hyperthreading). Firstly Id like to say a big thanks to xmisery for taking the time to share this with noobs like myself. Two questions I have........

1. Currently testing the 3.6 profile. CPU-Z reports the right speed, but W7 system info says 3.44 - anyone else notice this?

2. In the bios, I type the OC profile name I want to save, but it doesent keep it. I'm pressing 'enter' after typing it in - am I doing it wrong?.

thanks

I'm liking this board so far, I'm on stock bios and everything was recognized from the first boot, minor bios tweaks on first boot and was good to go.

Easy 4ghz oc, 16 linx stable, with just a slight vcore bump to 1.28v and most stuff on AUTO.

I like the Vreg and SB temps, NB temps are ok with a gtx 480 next to it.

Hey Guys, I just built a system and having lotsa trouble with BSOD (System Service Exception , Win32K sys) Lotsa Graphics Corruption with fonts . Mostly happens when switching themes and font settings in windows 7 x64. I tried every benchmark and it passed them all with flying colours. Also I'n not ready to overclock but what would be the right way to setup the system using Corsair Dominator Ram 1600mhz. I used the XMP profile which set my QPI to 1.4V. Also is it normal for the Mem ok light to come on for about 2 seconds at every boot. I never get any boot problems though. I just cant get the system stable......

I dont know if links are allowed but here's what I've been going through with this board:
