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.

good imformation thanks sandman,
got my 8350 FX already, waiting for my Z-board will it boot with the bios on the board?

Yes it will boot/run fine.
Definitely update to latest bios 1101 and also check Asus site for latest drivers.
I don't run any of the Asus utilities, to many headaches for me lol. I like mine simple and being able to record the min, current and max values. Besides the AI Suite will not show NB temps. I wonder why? Lol.
I recommend HWinfo64 and hide settings you don't want. Much cleaner IMHO plus it plays well with other monitoring utilities unlike the AI Suite utility which are really bothersome that way.

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.

What you are experiencing is APM doing its work. Thing is perfectly normal, there is nothing wrong with your motherboard.
You can use AOD or some third part application such as AmdMsrTweaker to disable APM.

You must be confused.

That is really sad. Hidden feature under turbocore that can't be enabled or disabled separately. And I have to do this every boot up? That is so sad.

Have to turn on TurboCore and then apply on overdrive, then turn it off and apply again then APM shows in AIDA64 to be disabled, and after thats it.

From the looks of it so far, has to be done after every boot.

What is sad is that Asus chosen to not to give us a decent BIOS. They at least should have included the option to disable APM.

Anyway, do some googling for AmdMsrTweaker or look up the thread dedicated to this tool at the xtremesystems forum.
AmdMsrTweaker is a command line program that you allows to make adjustments to the Bulldozer & Vishera CPUs. You can create a batch file that runs the command "AmdMsrTweaker APM=0" when Windows starts to automatically disable APM.

the download link for the tool at the xtremesystems forum is dead. but I found AMD PSCHECK which I can use to turn it off easier compared to AOD.

Best I could get in 32M while sticking to a 4ghz limit. It's a nice and efficient board with lots of nice ram settings to play with. I like how easy the bios is to work with in regards to turning of features I don't want.

This is the best I could get out of it on for a cpu-z validation while sticking to the 1.55v limit.

Picture of the setup!

All in all a very solid performing board. Like most ROG boards it can take an ass kicking and just keeps posting! Can't wait to get it nice and cold biggrin.gif

Been trying to find out about this, then came across this photo. So it's ok to run a single card in the second PCI-e slot? say a 6670... that has no power cable.


Also, anyone running Windows 8 fine with the Crosshair IV Formula? Cool & Quiet working OK?

I have uploaded a copy of AmdMsrTweaker to Bayfiles:
http://bayfiles.com/file/wOib/28dJcl/AmdMsrTweaker.zip
It is not the most reliable file sharing site, but hopefully the file will remain there long enough for you to download it.
