Yeah it's not the 932, it's the X(942) that has the shorting problem but it's only the early ones to my knowledge and it was actually a grounding issue in the I/O pcb. Either the screws weren't tight enough, causing a short. Or there was bare metal in the location and the gap between it and the the pcb was narrow enough to carry a charge, causing a short. smile.gif

I am reading, literally all over the net, that motherboards when they are fried no longer make a crisp, zappy sound that you can actually put to music if you're so inclined.

Nope, it seems that the sound is much more manly and assertive now:

KABOOM!

But seriously though... That thread I posted a few posts back has a tip to "not overtighten" the mobo screws. I like to tighten them so who knows if I did overtighten or not. Now that I watercool I really do not have a need to. Before I used to use big and heavy air coolers so I would tighten with the intent to mitigate the air coolers weight against the mobo.

I guess this is where I will say that "I need to loosen up a bit" on that. (I was gonna say "I need to loosen up a bit on my screws" but then SOMEONE will come, quote me and place that as their signature quote).

This evening I plan on a fun-filled ohm meter reading session between all of the plugs on the PSU with the case itself. Molex connectors and the power connectors for the CPU and GPU's is easy enough. It's those small pesky SATA connectors that have me stumped. Ideas?

do not touch a live one and a ground at the same time with the probe

Hope some one else has already ran into this or knows the answer as I am pulling my hair out trying to get this correct.

The issue I am having is that I have a Crucial C300 128Gig SATA III SSD, I have read the SSD threads and the install guide on it several times over and have followed each point, I now have my SSD installed but I am seeing in HD Tune that my speeds are very low {around 275Meg instead of 375+} and under the INFO tab it is showing me that it is running as a SATA II device.

I have upgraded the firmware on the SSD from 006 to 007.
I updated my Moterboard BIOS from 1203 to 1304.
I Installed WIN 7 Ultimate in IDE mode than changed the Registry from IDE to AHCI.
I set my BIOS to AHCI and when WIN 7 booted it installed the correct drivers.


I have only the SSD and a DVD installed in the SATA slots 1 & 2
I have set the BIOS SATA ports to SATA III after not seeing any difference when set to Auto.


I have attached a screen shot showing the Info tab for HD Tune... I am hoping that someone knows the trick to get this running on at the speed that I paid for...




Thank in advance for any and all help...

Try moving the DVD to port 5 or 6 and set them to IDE in the BIOS.

Leave the SSD in port 1 in AHCI mode.

I tried your advice and sadly no change at all... I even updated my M/B BIOS to 1902 just to see if it would help and again nothing... I loaded the AHCI driver that came with the M/B and now the SSD shows up as a SCSI device and I cannot see in HD Tune if it is running SATA II or III, but I can tell from the speeds it is the same, still getting around 275MB, so I really am stumped on this one...

Any idea's ???

Many thanks in advance...

Go to the ASUS site and download the SATA driver for the AMD 990 FX Sabertooth mobo. This is the one I use on my 6 SSD RAID strip. I did improved my Read/Write speed.

Yeah, I got one. Got any spare cables? Cut the connector off, strip the wires and separate them well, and probe away with the other end plugged in. I have done this myself before. IIRC there are only 7 wires in the cable.

Agreed... Resistance readings are always done with a powered down system. That I remember.

But I appreciate the tip. With my record so far...
post #10790 of 13131
Hey, I've just got my CIVF, and I've been overclocking it a bit. I've got two questions:

1) I want the computer to run in near-silent mode sometimes, and jet engine taking off when I'm out of the house and don't have to hear it folding. I can set my 6850's fan speed through AMD Vision and set my profiles, and change that while in windows, but the only way I have to change my CPU fan speed is in the BIOS. Is there a way to set fan speed profiles from windows?

2) I did my overclock by upping the FSB speed to 240. Should I leave it at 200 and change the multiplier instead? What's the difference between say 16x240 and 19x200? Is one going to be better/more efficient than the other?
