The CHVZ is going through the paces real well so far (rock solid). The only down side so far is the AMD 990 chipset. I had better SSD benchs on the CHIV with the mod bios from spooky lol. Same Raid Rom etc, just lower scores. I will say it's nothing I can feel. Takes a little time to work out the bugs which Asus isn't doing too bad with.

The Digi+ Power Control options are awesome and if that wasn't enough, when you get really board you can always play with the Dram Driving Controls rolleyes.gif Seriously, so many new settings.
When/if you ever get board OCing grab a Z and an FX. It's like learning all over again lol.

Truth. Even when I've OC'ed on my Crosshair IV Formula successfully in the past, I still find myself looking around dumbfounded when I OC a new CPU. Feeling like a newborn infant making my way round the Performance side of the BIOS.

Thank you for this information! The cost of extra power doesn't worry me that much, but the extra heat it produces makes me wonder whether I should invest in a new motherboard or not.

I just got my FX-8350 today and just installed it into my Crosshair IV formula, just reset my bios(flashed 3029 few week ago) and all good to go, working very nicely so far!

For a start im going ot use my existing G.skill set of 6GB and overclock it to the same 2000MHz it was at with my 1090T and see what kind of overclock I get out of the cpu.

http://valid.canardpc.com/2619077

Just booted up with 2000MHz ram, no problems smile.gif all stock volts, and next overclocking.

I am going to assume that is a 200mm body fan so yeah if it is, that is normal. That's about what mine runs when I've got mine working. smile.gif

http://valid.canardpc.com/2619111

mine dropped down to that aswell thats why i asked about what ram
when i set my bios to docp the fsb and multi are 250 x 16 @1.4ish volts and if i try to up the multi a little my rated fsb drops and my nb goes to 2800mhz
so think it might be best to manually overclock to get ram to 2000mhz
anyone else come across this yet

I'm definitely having problems with fx-8350 on crosshair iv formula, explains why it is beta bios and asus says no warranty what so ever for any errors or problems caused by beta bioses.

I'm working to resolve my problems but im not going to post them here until I get them sorted out, so much random stuff going on. And adjust your settings set your HT / NB to 2000 or higher manually by the way.

Also pay close attention to your multipliers on core temp 1.0 rc4 if they start dropping to 7, 17, or any lower number that you have set them to. its not set up properly.


Edit: multipliers above 17 are unstable on Crosshair IV formula. Can overclock with lower multipliers or 17x by increasing FSB to 300 I got 4.5Ghz stable and temps don't go above 60.

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2620351

I highly recommend every crosshair IV formula owner to double check their overclocks and monitor for multiplier and voltage drops. I was able to play games on 5Ghz but when I stress all cores 100% the multipliers start dropping together with voltages, even if noting is overheating.

Going to leave it at 4,5Ghz, 2000MHz ram, 2122 nb / ht for now.

Probably have to get a new mainboard for any serious overclocking.
