Congrats man!

Vcore looks right in line with what I've seen with the CHIV, keep working it. I was hoping it may do more with less. Time will tell for sure. Definitely keep us posted how you make out!

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

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.
So you're blaming your H50 for an error you made?
You didn't double-check your CPU installation and you tightened the CPU cooler obviously too much.

WoW, Over 4Ghz without any problems. WoW
CongratZ on the Board, but 4GHz with a 1090T is pretty easy to achieve though... even on a 1055T is quite easy.
Push that CPU to 4.2GHz!

Actually... and I had a H50 at one point... The H50 tends to be a bit more tedious (not difficult mind you) to install in my own personal opinion. You have to find a balance between installing that ring on the mobo and being able to insert the CPU block and twisting in into place. You need to find that exact spot where not too much pressure is present but that there is enough to make a good contact between the block and the CPU.

I am not taking anything away from the H50 in terms of performance and such. Maybe I am just old fashioned and a fierce proponent of KISS (Keep It Simple, Steve) but I just like the old fashion position the HSF, tighten the 4 screws and be done with it.

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.

thanks for the info guys. after i pm'd incurablegeek i rechecked my cpu because i noticed it took a bit more force to secure the hsf than usual so after takin it out the cpu was stuck too the hsf and sum of the pins had been bent. it was seated properly i just think the hsf was a bit dodgy that and im a moron for putting it on when i felt it wasnt right!! done it before many times on other peoples machines without ever damaging components and on my first build i wreck the cpu .. gonna try get amd to fix it if i can and hopefully buy a different hsf like incurablegeek suggested ... thanks guys

Say while your here, you should go to the user control panel and fill out your system specs so whenever you make a post everyone can see what you're running which makes it easier to give help.

Also feel free to join the club (assuming you have a CHIV lol) to add yourself to the members list on the OP.

I would suggest that the H50 is not one of the "crappy coolers" in existence. The problem with those is that Corsair doesn't tell us to thread the screws all the way through the inserts and Acetek provides really THICK double sided tape.

So the end result if you're new to the whole aftermarket cooler world, can be bad. I guess I just got lucky that I didn't bend a pin on my CPU. Of course my OCD doesn't allow for luck, since I'm on constant alert. If it doesn't feel right to me, it isn't right 80% of the time. It's just a matter of breaking everything down to their basic principles.

Sucks that my Math brain tends to overthink problems and gets me in trouble.

That sucks that you ended up bending a pin on your Thubbie ICG.

@Murph... is your pin still on the CPU? If so you should be able to fix it without much issue. Try using a mechanical pencil tip without the lead being in it. Should be just enough room between pins to slowly press the opening over the bent pin and then you rotate it around the pin as you remove it. Do this slowly. You should be okay after removing the pencil tip.

Looks like some shops already have it. Dutch webshop says it's in stock.
