Before u buy, Just want to say 1 thing about High end motherboard like this crosshair IV.

Like Honnestly when your paying 200-250$ on an AMD Motherboard, no matter what the company, your getter a motherboard that will overclock well and that will have all the features youll need its rly a matter of personal choice at this Level because unless your going to highend liquid cooling of LN2 your probly not ganna see a difference between this 890FX board and the next top of the line 890FX in overclocking....technique is everythin when it comes to overclocking...

enjoy your purchase

My temporary air cooled set up while waiting for the EK chip set water block.



The issue I'm currently trying to work out is transferring a cloned array image that is on a single HD, to the Raptor array on the CFIV. The cloned image has Intel RAID drivers on it, & I need to somehow get the AMD RAID drivers on to the array so that the MB recognizes the array.

Installed a Zalmem CNPS 10X Performa in place of AMD stock cooler.
Temps with the stock cooler were 39 C at idle and 61 C running Prime95.
Temps with Zalmen cooler were 34 C at idle and 51 C running Prime95.
Amb. temp. 27 C, CPU set at 3724 MHz, run 2 sticks of tall Mem. in the back slots. Nice fit with Zalmen cooler.

58'C is an issue, might have to take a look at what under the NB/SB heatsink looks like.

So i have to disconnect everything from the computer again :S . what should my temps be?like 35 c ?

funny thing i got it used and the seller didnt know anything about this issue
post #1777 of 13131
Agreed. Before you do though make sure you have some Shin-Etsu or other short burn TIM handy.

I went under mine even though I didn't have to (possibly) and cut where the NB and SB indented the stock TIM and cleaned them with some Qtips and rubbing alcohol. Then I let it sit til there was no RA residue and applied fresh TIM to the areas I cleaned off the heatsinks.

Just be careful. A quarter grain of rice size glob is slightly too much but not so that it gets all over the place. I'd apply it to the heatsinks.

so the NB screw has to be shorten as the SB one ? i will get some OCZ freeze cause i cant find the shin anywhere with postage to EU.
post #1779 of 13131
Yeah the NB screw holders need to be the same length as the SB ones, and OZ freeze is fine also.

Ceaderman? congrats on the 100 reps and 2nd flame, goodjob man

So have the bios issues been sorted out now? Also are the newer boards coming with a better NB heatsink, with the issue sorted out?
