[Official] --The Asus P6X58D Premium & E Thread-- - Page 502

post #5011 of 6384
SO, I just finished swapping out the mobo, out with the bloodrage, in with the p6x58d-premium. I freaking love it! I'm so impressed with the stability. I wasn't able to get the old one past 3.9ghz without the memory dropping to 2gb. Now I just got my chip up to 4.2ghz with HT on and full memory working just fine. I'm wondering how high it'll go! woohoo I'll try for more eventually, but for now I have stuff to do. I love it!

Only thing I don't like is the fact that my cards are nut-to-butt, before my 2 570's were like 1 inch apart, not now. I am happy to the fact that I can add another for TRI-SLI, which was the main reason I got this board in the first place. Now if I could just come up with $300......

How are your temps with them right next to each other? I just ordered another GTX480 for SLI. if the temps are bad, I'm planning to run the second card in the 3rd PCE-E slot so that there's more room for air in between the cards. Supposedly it doesn't affect speeds much to put it in the third slot even tho it's not 16x. My 180mm Penetrator fans in my Raven are pointing right at the video cards, though, so it remains to be seen whether or not it's necessary to run it in the 3rd slot instead of the 2nd.

OK, so I got my second HAF X in today and transferred my parts over. I reseated the CPU, reapplied TIM and all of that and still only 4 GB. I took about 20 pics from a ton of angles and they should be at 12.1 MP. So who was saying that they'd take a look at them for me? I didn't see any bent pins or anything but maybe you will. I'd like to email them to you as it will probably be easier. So please PM me with your email address and I'll send them to you. Thanks again.

Post them at www.imgur.com like I do... easy and free. Then post links here, not the actual pics...

Ok well here is a link to an album that I made of several pics. I didn't go through them so some might not be the best. But I took pics from every angle possible. Hope this helps you help me lol. Please let me know.

Here's the link

Sorry, I know a few of the pics are blurry. I didn't go through them. I just took as many as I could and figured It'd be enough. Like I said, I can't see anything wrong but hopefully you guys can lol.

I zoomed in a lot of your pictures... Looked as closely as I could. Now, I am not trying to flame or cause heartache, but there are a couple of things I noticed in general.

1) I can't detect any bent pins, but a few look dirty...

2) I see TIM residue around the socket mount... Many TIM products are electrically conductive. Any slight trace of it anywhere can cause shorts/trouble. I recommended buying a good can of electrical cleaner and spray the area down very well a couple times holding the board sideways to drain, then use canned air to blow it dry.

3) I can't tell if it's dust, TIM, or a scratch on the board on one side... I would look more closely after cleaning.

4) Remember, static discharge can kill any high-tech part. As well as they make these boards, one static zap can make life hard, give intermitent problems or partially harm something, so handle things carefully.

Other than the above, nothing really obvious. I would clean and check the CPU also. Remember to handle things without rubber/plastic shoes on... Static discharge will get you!

Good luck... these kinds of problems can be bastards to figure out.

I know about the whole TIM thing but I use IC Diamond which is Non capacitive or electrically conductive. I'm usually much more tidy with my build but I just got done tearing it down and only had a few minutes. I didn't however notice the scratch. Can you try and be a little more specific as to where it was so I can check it out and maybe repair the trace if one is broken? As for the other stuff, I certainly hope that I know that stuff lol. I'm an Computer and Electronics Engineer so if I didn't then I'd be a pretty bad one right? But thanks you for all of your information and ill try your suggestions. I didn't however even think about using some electrical cleaner. I'll try it out and take some more pics to see if there's anything that I missed. Thanks again.

Zoom in and look at the right side of this picture.

It may be just tiny splash or dust goo or something... hard to tell.. There are several area's like that... could be dust or something...

Yeah, I see the "glob" of TIM and the other ones are either dust or it might be a hair or something. But I do see what you are talking about. I'm just gonna pass on the electrical cleaner. I'll just put the motherboard in the dish washer. That should do the trick right? ... In case you guys don't know, I'm totally joking lol.

Edit: ok so I tore the system down (again) and cleaned the whole board with electronic cleaner spray. I did find an area by one of my holes for the heat sink to mount on the motherboard with that had a couple of traces that are probably damaged. I'm almost certain that it was there when I received the board because I never let anything that could scratch a board anywhere near it. I guess its time for a new board. Anyone here have one for sale? The cheaper (price wise) the better because I have already spend over $1200 in the past few months on these computers and I would like to continue to sleep with my wife
