Yup bad seat. I have the plastic adapter right now I'm at 48c and rising. Shutting down to reseat.

*Update* I'm on the netbook right now. I got a couple shots 1 of TIM(too much it seems but better coverage than last time) and the pump base.

Uploading pics right now...




Anyway the system is down for repairs. The last thing that happened was that my screen would flicker any time I right clicked or checked my CPU-ID monitor. Almost as if it were VGA related. But I know that's not it.

They went backwards with the plastic adapter as far as I am concerned. I bought a couple of spares when I first ordered mine. Glad I did because the latest version I have has the plastic adapter with the metal retainer. The new ones are cheaper to make but don't look like they work as well as the original.

Good luck.

Well I'm definitely not gonna be happy if I have to go back to the stock cooler. Which I just may do at the moment to make certain it isn't my CPU that's at fault. I know it isn't but that tinge of doubt is still there none the less.

Looked like very little TIM to me and there is no need to intentionally try to cover the surface, you only need the TIM covering the core.....just put a little plop in the center about the size of the little emoticon faces at 1200x1600.

Try not to move the H50 around too much after the initial application while you are securing it.

@driver... But it went over the edge which indicates too much TIM. I think that I had the right amount just placed it wrong. Too much toward the upper right Q of the CPU surface.

It's a pain to type on this netbook since it's hanging on for dear life on Darkside cattycorner on the fence as it were. lol

Anyway I'm back to square one with the H50. Completely cleaned of TIM, CPU out for inspection.

As you can see...

No fragged pins...


Overhead view...



TIM removed and showing flatness of my CPU...


So imho this is not the problem...
Makes me sadder that I spent $11 to RMA the CHIV.

Who is running crossfire on this Crosshair IV?

I just got my other 4890 and added it in expecting big things. Well my 3dmark score shot up ~5000 points, but my FPS while racing "Race On" by SimBin is ~40% lower than with 1 card.

Any insight or ideas would be great.

I just disabled crossfire and raced and the FPS was like never under 60, where with 2 cards it was ~35.

I've done driversweeper and reinstalled the newest cat6 drivers.

I don't know what to do...sell all these 4890s and get a real card?

Have you tried an earlier driver ny_?I'm still on 10.5 without issues but use 5XXX series. Try 10.5 or 10.4 for stability in crossfire.
