[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 1148

post #11471 of 13132
Got the Antec Kuhler H20 920 in and installed. Came without the manual or the CD, must have been a return or just left out of packaging.

Been doing a little testing and it seems to work OK, but I'd like it more if the coolant temps were more inline with the actual CPU temp. The software (d/l'ed) works pretty well. It not hard to see where to set fan control settings based on coolant temps. But for the best protection, ramp start temp must be a bit too low, which make excessive fan noise when there really isn't any over temps to cool down. Same is true for the full fan speed setting. If it's set to high, the cooler can keep top temps low enough. All of this would have been a non-issue if the thermal transfer were better.

I actually installed this twice. First install was using the stock thermal compound that came on the water block. Did a number of tests and found that the thermal transfer just wasn't good. Since I have a large tube of arctic silver 5, I then did a remount after cleaning all the other thermal compound off and using a nice skim coat of arctic silver 5. Did the same tests again, and found a marked improvement over the previous tests.

I'm fully stable now at 4.875 MHz. I'm still working on buss speeds/multiplier settings, but got pretty nice memory benchmarks with LinX running 20 sets without any problems. Buss is at 265 and dram freq is up to 1063 MHz. Cycle times are not too bad at 8-11-9-27-36-1T, but still adjust them.

I might still get 5 GHz (stable) on this CHIVE, well see.

-Rodger

BTW, been typing this while running Prime95... Here a screen capture of working screens. OOPS! See worker #6 pooped out! More testing to do for sure.

I have one question to which some of you may be able to answer..

In the CHIVE bios, one of the options is "PWM Frequency". The different options available are 200KHz, 300KHz, 400KHz, 500KHz, and "Auto". I'm just wondering what the these do. I'm assuming something with the VRM's but I'm not sure which would be the best option.

The higher frequencies give a faster transient response from the VRM, it's supposed to be better for overclocking but it increases the load on the VRM and generates more heat.

Hi all, I just recently (a few days ago) got this board along with my new 1090T.

I would like to follow up on ChristianUshuaia's question as well regarding the new BIOS updates. Any feedback?

BTW Im using the 2002, which was the default installed on my CHIV.

i would like to say unlike the CHIV formula or the extreme asus got thier crap togather on thier sabertooth i have 2 new machines one running 2- 6870,s in crossfire and 1 running 2-gtx 450,s in sli both have 1100T,s and both have 16 gigs of corsair vengence 1600 both are awsome machines and all it takes to do sli or crossfire is loading either the radeon drivers on thier card,s or nvidia drivers on thier cards no messing with the mess that you had with lucid

Your comparing the 990FX chipset to the 890FX chipset...
Crosshair IV Formula/Extreme are 890FX
Sabertooth and Crosshair V Formula are 990FX

890FX does not support SLI

bo knows this. He's referring to Crosshair V not Crosshair IV. He likes to keep us updated on his thoughts on the matter since he owns Crosshair IV too. I think he meant to leave the I out of the name but typed it as a matter of habit. Of course I could be wrong.wink.gif

Although, by rights he shouldn't blame ASUS in this matter at all. This is an issue that was due to Intel and AMD not playing nice with one another so they had their Intel chips and their AMD chips. If you wanted AMD you would have been screwed if ASUS stuck with Intel chips only. And vice versa unless you did the NVidia hack on the Crosshair IV. mellowsmiley.gif

the CHIV extreme DOES just takes a rocket scientist to get the lucid chip to work like it is supposed to but it does work it just cuts your card performnece a little

The Crosshair IV formula doesn't support SLI?

Oh and Hello everyone biggrin.gif I'm just about to finish my Rig and I came here to ask If my memory is compatible with my motherboard (CHIV) I checked on the website and The memory I will be using Is not on the list of supported memory.

here's the RAM:

Links still not showing up? Well the RAM is PNY Optima 8gb 1333
