The length of time anyone has been building systems doesn't really mean anything, I have been building modding and programming comps since the 80's, around 28 years but that doesn't make me any better at it than someone who has only been doing it for a short time just more experienced, I wouldn't dream of attempting some of the water loops I've seen in here lol.

It occurred to me that I've had intel boards that were flaky. I had this on X58 that would sometimes lockup playing games. I eventually replaced the ram with Corsair dominators and my problems went away. So experienced has taught me that all the parts are like pieces to a puzzle and they have to come together just right for it all to work right. I mean it's not always plug and play though. Takes a little know how to tweak timings and vtt voltages especially when overclocking but this thing wasn't overclocked. It quite simply didn't like four 4gb modules @1600 7-8-8-24 timings and wouldn't post when it would with two. So we have three possibilities - bad ram, motherboard qvl issue, or poor memory controller on cpu. What could it be?

Well having seen first hand what a bum CPU can do on a ROG Board, I can't blame either AMD nor ASUS. The failure rating for a specific part is pretty low to be quite honest. The CPU light lit up on my Formula so It looked like there was nothing wrong with 1055T and it seemed to be due to RAM since that was the next logical step in POST process. Had 1100T available to me so I swapped it into the socket an whadyaknow system POST'ed w/o issue. So yeah there are Bad CPU out there. But I wouldn't stop getting a manufacturers product unless they were peddling junk on me.

Thus far since I left 775, I've had 2 CPU have to be RMA'ed. 940 and FX 8120(heat issue). It happens to the best of us and I well understand the frustration that comes along with your pride an joy sitting quietly in a corner not uttering a sound. But I wouldn't change a thing regardless of the issue cause I learn more an more with every new issue that crops its head. I consider it a test of wills. Who has more intestinal fortitude. Me or the machine. thumb.gif

I've heard some of these boards over volt the cpu when its set to auto vcore. Any truth to that?

Not to my knowledge. I got a 4Ghz clock with the 955 I was running on my Formula w/ stock voltage. It wasn't stable for very long but it kept it at stock voltage. I can really only speak to my knowledge with the board to be honest. Gonna be OC'ing this 1100T this week so I'll post the results. Althouth the gentleman that did have this CPU got it to 4.4Ghz on CIVE at 1.464v CPUID doesn't say whether it was on auto or Manual. thumb.gif

If the LLC is set to extreme then it will increase the cpu voltage under a load

Hello guys, long time dint show up here.

Recently my 1090T temp keep going to 57c~58c and it is really hot since i can feel the hot air coming from it.
My vcore showing 1.44v and the temp is going crazy.

All my setting are auto/normal as i dint OC cause im running it on stock amd cooler. Before this the temp was decent around 30c-40c. Dont know why this is happening.
Is it normal or i messed up something?
post #12039 of 13131

if you have handle or pick up the motherboard by the heat sink then you my have broken seal between the heat sink and the chip and the heat sink will have to be reset

 

if you are not overclocking then vcore voltage at 1.44 is to high try 1.34 volts

 

to reset the board to defaults use the reset button on back of the computer see page 2-28 in CH4F manual number 6

 

the max temp for a 1090T is 62 C as long as you do not go over 62 C its OK
