[Official] --The Asus P6X58D Premium & E Thread-- - Page 448

post #4471 of 6382
I have now replaced the cpu and still have the issue of date and time not being saved in BIOS after power has been removed. Has anyone else had this problem? I've read quite a bit about other BIOS settings not saved but date and time are ARE saved. I'm having a difficult time thinking that TWO boards have the same issue and that it's probably something else (maybe PSU?) but I'm lost right now.

Not a guru at all. I just hang out here in this thread alot. I had been a OCN lurker for a couple years before this thread finally got me to join up after reading everyone of the posts at the time while trying to figure out my new board. I've learned alot here on OCN but this thread and a few members who used to be regular contributors were particularly helpfull. I just try to give back a little and help out when I can.
Thanks Sizzle! I'm debating right now about what I'm going to do to this machine. It's that time of year where I'm free to spend a couple thousand without the wife clowning. (software and technology advance so fast I have to upgrade to keep up with what's going on) Works in my house!

I'm debating whether to push this RAM or just purchase some I found that apparently can run 12GB of 1600Mhz at CAS6. That's right CAS6 out of the box with the P6X58D-Premium and 6 sticks of 1600 to boot. I've heard it's compatible with no changes to settings or anything. Here's a link if you want to investigate. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231352 Right now it even comes with a free 32GB USB Key. I actually stuck it in my cart and when I put the second kit in, it said I get 2 USB keys. $125 for RAM and key, can't beat that!

Besides this upgrade, I'm purchasing a 240GB OCZ Revo x2 PCI-E x4 SSD for my operating system, games, Adobe CS4, and other intensive apps. I've heard it's more than worth the $670 it costs, continuous 700+ reads and writes!

I'll post pics and specs upon completion. I'm looking for the magical 10 sec. boot (not including POST)

Next years 2 grand will be a six core extreme edition, whatever the best is that's out at the time and I'll officially be done with the P6X58D. I'll pass it on to my son that will be 14 by then and start a Sandy Bridge build if there's nothing better by then.

Have you checked the MB battery? That's the only thing I've ever seen cause a board not to hold date and time correctly.

I have nearly the same ram coming in today (on the UPS truck) from NewEgg. 6 sticks, CAS-7. The price of $89 for 6GB I couldnt beat. It was $192 (or something like that) to my door (im in CA) and the CAS-6 would have been $345.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-335-_-Product
The $20 instant off promo code through newegg ended last night.
I am returning my Kingston HyperX DDR3-2000 + fan to NewEgg. $30 more I got 12gb CAS-6 1600MHz vs 6gb CAS-9 2000MHZ (6GB). Besides hitting the 2000MHz thing reliably doesn't seem worth it to me.

I also have the RevoDrive 120GB in my P6X58D-E. It's been in since last Friday, not one problem so far.

:EDIT - notes on the RevoDrive:
I read tons of issues with various ASUS boards and the PCIe revodrive.
Here's what I did, per reading and my own improvisation.

Create a USB bootable W7 install. Do this by installing "RT Seven Lite". Download the OCZ RevoDrive drivers. Then the Intel Chipset drivers, then the Marvell LANdriver. Incorporate all three of those chipset drivers in to the image. Then create a USB bootable. Then disconnect ALL Sata connections (no Cd, no HDD, etc.) and boot from the USB, install windows. Then power off, hook up SATA. Good to go. Seems lame, right? But people have success with this and I am 6 days of no problems so far. Everyone hopes ASUS will provide a firmware for some better compatibility, but I dont know if that is the issue.

Thanks Agro, that's what I'm planning, let me know if all 12GB of that RAM show up and operate correctly. Is your Revo drive the original at 540MB Read speeds? Did you know there's a faster x2 version out now at 740MB Read.

By the way everyone that's wondering if I'm insane, Cookie Monster earned his name one night while I was building him. I had consumed about 10 Bud Lights and dozed off, when I woke up after about 10 minutes, my head was sideways while the PC was on with the side window and fan off and I thought Cookie Monster returned from my childhood. Look at the picture of the CPU and RAM fans sideways! Thus my PC's name! Funny, but it stuck and my kids really dig it.

They have so many different models, all priced differently. At the time I got the RevoDrive (bout 2 weeks ago) it was $289 I think (it's gone up) and it is the 500mb/sec one. 120GB. I see the x2 is even more $. I wasn't 100% optimistic (I still have doubts) that this would work perfectly for me, and it is such bleeding edge stuff, that I didn't want to drop a ton of $. It really is fast though. BTW, you notice that the X2 has a daughter board sticking up on it. 100GB for $429 or whatnot, it is just 25GB x 4, striped raid-0. The regular one I have is 2 separate 60GB raid-0. They have the controller on board to handle the raid.

I hope the memory shows up all 12GB. It shows on their memory support list that all slots can work and it shows a 6GB kit, so there is no way to fill all slots with a 6GB kit, I just think that the engineers figure you can use 2 kits? Maybe I'll need to supply a little more voltage? We'll see...

I am not the best with OC'ing, so I will prob get this thing going at like 3.2 or 3.4GHz (i7 950 @3.06 stock) and then go back up to 3.84GHz once I see if the memory is happy, etc.

Thanks AFord66. I changed the battery and the same issue was still there. So on a wild hunch I changed video cards (the one I was using hadn't been used in a while) and now date and time are saved as they should be. Don't understand how a video card could cause this problem.....but it seems like it did!

A custom fan profile with MSI Afterburner helped alot. I did go ahead and back off the overclock and volts a bit for a little extra leeway on the gaming profile. Big side fan blowing air between them on my case helps. A 120 zip tied to the back of the hard drive cage directed to blow between the cards isn't a bad idea. Also I didn't do a screwless install. Added a screw on the back bracket to keep the top card from sagging at all.

So ya it will work but might take a little tweaking. Using the 3rd slot would be ideal but that comes with it's own set of problems.
Sizzle, Sli ain't as easy as you thought with this specific mobo, huh? You lose way too much fuctionality by using the bottom slot and there aren't any right-angled connectors that'll help either.
The best choice for Sli with this mobo is, don't bother. Just buy the best single card solution you can afford and forget Sli. Unless you can watercool your cards and just use the top 2 vga slots. Looks like I'll be selling my pair of Galaxy 470's sometime soon, since they have non-reference boards and can't be WC'd and then Sli'd together. I'll be swapping out the MSI GTX-480 with the Danger Den waterblock from my new build and then watercooling just the video-card. No need to replace the Corsair H-70 since it works perfectly with the +4.4 GHz o.c. I've been running for the last 2 or 3 months so I'm going on the cheap and just WCing the vid-card. Besides, in a couple of weeks this P6X58D-Premium is just going to be another back-up for my new build. Maybe I'll use it for BOINC. Not folding. I've tried FAH since it 1st came out and it's still the worst program ever invented. I sure miss Find a Drug. http://www.find-a-drug.org/frame.html The best distributed computing program ever!

Here is my system:
Antec 1200 full tower case
Asus P6X58D-E motherboard
Intel i7-950 CPU
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ CPU cooler with extra fan (push/pull)
6 x 2GB G.Skill DDR3-1600 CL7
eVGA GeForce GTX 570 S.C.
OCZ RevoDrive 120GB
WDC Black 1TB SATA 6.0GB/sec
etc...

So I ran fine at stock and even at 3.2. I ran OCCT for a few hours no problem.
I decided to try for 3.84 GHz

BCLK = 160
CPU Ratio = 24
DRAM Freq = DDR3-1604MHz
DRAM Bus Volt = 1.5
QPI/DRAM Core = Auto (it set to 1.47 I saw once in)
CPU Voltage = Auto
Set timing 7-8-7-24
etc.

I ran OCCT and within 20 seconds it said "CPU too hot!" and I saw it was 65C. I can increase the threshold I suppose. Can anyone give me any thoughts on all this though before I go hacking away where maybe I should be

Asus TurboV shows the CPU voltage = 1.42500, QPI/DRAM Core Volt = 1.47500, CPU PLL = 1.80, ICH PCIE=1.5.

:EDIT 1/13/11 10:53pm PST:
I read a bit.
I manually set a few things. CPU vcore to 1.30, I tried QPI low but i get 124 erroring, so at 1.3875 for QPI I ran for 10 mins solid OCCT, only got to 52 C. I probably could go higher I think as it seems to be solid for a short period of time. Sure I need to let it run for hours and hours, but not yet. I can try dropping CPU vcore to like 1.28 or something too, that reduces heat I guess. Just going from the Auto which goes to 1.425 to 1.30 made a huge diff.
