That's good to know. I have them at the top of my list. I just found another issue. The HD4850's run great. The HD4870's do not. I'm pretty sure one is not working, & the other one is probably done also. They wont fire up on this MB, so I'm going to try them on the BlackOps board. The 4870's both ran much hotter than the 4850's. If they're both done, the RAM may have to wait a while.

Once again, I have another question XD. How in the hell do you flash the bios? I got the file from the Asus website, but when I try to run it with EZ Flash 2 it says that no update module was found in it. Hurts my brain.

Just received it today from the EGG and removed the NB/SB cooler to check it out. Good contact but the TI material Asus uses is crap. I used MX-3 and reinstalled the NB/SB cooler. A fairly simple job, just be careful and use the right size screwdriver to remove the screws.

Board is up and running and temps are NB 44C and SB 40C at idle. This compares to 49C and 40C on my other Crosshair IV. Ambient is 27C. I did not check the contact on the first system before I installed it, but with the difference in temperature on the NB I will probably pull the board tomorrow and check it out. If nothing else just to get rid of the crappy TI material that Asus uses.
Just got the other system back together and temperatures have dropped to NB 44C and SB 38C from NB 49C and SB 40C. The NB had some contact but not as much as the new board. The SB was barely touching and the plastic protective cover on the SB was not centered and was on part of the SB preventing contact. I am surprised that it was running as cool as it was. The standoff were loose on the NB and I turned them a little over a 1/4 of a turn (be very careful if you try to tighten these as they would be easy to break off). It took me several trial fitting as I didn't want to file off too much but ended up with a good contact pattern on both the NB and the SB. One thing that I discovered were that the screws have a shoulder that serves as a stop, so be careful if you try this and do not over tighten the screws and break one.

Took a little longer on the 2nd system but if you have temps that are a little high it is not really that hard to fix it. Just be careful and take your time.

You did extract the file didn't you? The download is a ZIP file. You should have a ROM file named CrosshairIV-Formula-0905.ROM.

So I was able to get my 1090T stable at 4Ghz last night just by changing the CPU Ratio and upping the Vcore to 1.42 volts. Now that it is stable I am going to work on the NB. I see a lot of people with similar builds as mine have been shooting for 2800mhz on the NB. I have some questions on this topic:

1.) Is 2800mhz on the NB a safe target similar to a solid 4ghz on my 1090T? I basically want a good overclock without stressing my chipset too much.

2.) Do I need to update the HT to 2000 Mhz for it the NB to be stable?

3.) Additionally I understand that by getting a better frequency on my NB I should be able to get better clocks on my RAM right? Right now I have 7-7-7-21, should I shoot for lower with my RAM?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure how it would work in tandem with your OC, but w/o OC'ng I dropped my timings down to 6-6-6-20 w/ all 8 Gigs onboard. Coincidentally after my 3rd slot dropped out and I was running only slots 1 and 2 I tried to drop the timings at the backend to 6-6-6-18 and BSoD'ed a couple times before I realized that 18 was too tight. But of course I was only running 2 of 4 sticks and the second one was in the 2nd slot instead of where it belonged @ 3rd slot. This was due to the wackiness of my slot failure. For whatever reason it allowed me to Post in 1 and 2.

So I figure you should be safe at 6-6-6-20.

Did you restart or did you unpack it and expect it to be applied and be able to run the new BIOS settings?
