My system spec is Asus crosshair IV extreme, AMD AMD Phenom II X6 1100T, HD 5770, G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR3 1600 F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL. But everytime i get into system information it only show that my memory running at 667 mhz. How can i fix it to run at 1600? i try to seach in forum but nothing specific show up.

go to BIOS --> DRAM frequency --> set it @ 1600. you may need to adjust your DRAM voltage too.(check RAM sticker)
Set your CPU/NB frequency @ 2400 at least(CPU/NB Voltage @ 1.20-1.25V)

I just received an email from Sandman about the CPU/Red LED problem that I had experienced. Sandman asked me to post my solution to the problem. Please see the following:

hey guys i just put together my first build using the crosshair iv formula mobo and it wont boot. the cpu led lights up solid red. iv reseated everything and im confident the cpu is in correct and all the ram and gpu. i think its just a rookie mistake somewhere in the build and am hoping u guys could help me out.

Response from Haknova:

I heard about this issue...i believe if im not mistaken is u need to have a lower core (quadcore) let it post and update bios..then reseat ur hex and ull be good..

Thats what i believe ur problem is..u got old bios that only recognize quadcore and lower cores..

Actually not true. I have the same Formula board and 1090T AMD CPU as murph2010. Haknova's response is quite logical in that I had to upgrade two other boards here so they could handle the 6-Cores, my ASUS M4A79 Deluxe being one of them.

The formula board is built for 6-Core CPU's right out the box. The solution to my problem was embarrassing simple. I'm ashamed to admit it but I made a rookie mistake and bent the 1090T pins with that darned-old Corsair H50 (which now lies in the back room).

Ah ... Well, Oops! It looks like my rather lengthy PM has been deleted by murph2010. Briefly, the following is my response to murph2010, which I believe from his response was sufficient.

1) Check Pins to see if bent
2) Don't use crappy HSF's like the Corsair H50, the Tuniq Tower, and the Arctic "something or rather". They were all a real 8itch to install and actually damaged some of my equipment.

Instead use only the Noctua NH-D14 HSF. It's ENORMOUS, but installation is stupidly easy and there is no danger of damaging the CPU or Motherboard as with the others I mentioned to avoid. It is very, very highly rated and was actually recommended to me by a friend on OCN. Just luv it, ordered another, and read where it kicks the @ss of many liquid cooling units - certainly adequate for 4.0 GHz. OC.

Sorry if I stepped on anyone's toes with my opinions. They are simply the result of bad experiences that I don't wish others to have. smile.gif

Nothing to be ashamed of bro. NOTHING! 80% of all issues is something basic gone wrong. The good thing is that it has solution. the hard part sometimes is determining what the problem is to begin with.

Also... you are never stepping on toes when you express YOUR experiences.

But... and I hope you don't mind my asking but I would like to know so that, as you say, I can benefit from your experience and avoid your situation myself. How did the pins get all bent when installing the HSF? Too much pressure?

As always, thank you Kabrohn for the kind, and forgiving, words. Re:

It was a combination of things.

1) I had not seated the CPU properly (didn't snap it in) before lowering the "rocker arm"

2) The HSF's I had trouble with were not easy installs like the Noctua NH-D14 (no, I do not have stock in the mfr. or receive a commission smile.gif

They tended to torque the CPU and, as you mentioned, in the case of the Tuniq Tower for example, were difficult to adjust. Put another way, I just had no idea How Far or How Hard to tighten the HSF down. So I think that in addition to bent pins, I crushed not only the CPU but put a serious hurt on my motherboard (had to RMA my Gigabyte board as a result)

And to all my OCN friends: I am very conscious of being a drag on this group. I therefore hope to be able to be a Two-Cables-esqe contributor some day soon. lachen.gif

WoW, Over 4Ghz without any problems. WoW

Sure can feel your excitement! Congratulations on your purchase and thanks for letting us (at least me) know that this board is out! I spend my life on NewEgg but managed to miss it.

4GHz - On Air or Water?
