[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 368

post #3671 of 13131
I'm a Copper Geek. I love Copper. It's the best for Cooling and for heat distribution. Yeah it tarnishes easily, but imho it cannot be beat. Vinegar is the best cleaning solution besides CLR. My cookware even has Copper on it. Of course that was before Revereware was sold to a crap manufacturer company. lol

Truthfully though I don't mind a bit of work to keep my system working in tip top shape. So long as I only use one metal shouldn't be much of a chore. Nickel is pretty good too though so don't get me wrong werm, just have an idea how my system should look. Besides I think I'll just be using distilled water and leave the additives alone. I wonder if I could get EK to put mine together with Red acrylic.

Thats why I went w/ nickel gpu blocks and getting the nickel board and cpu (supreme hf) blocks.



for $60-70 usd more than the 1055t? thats no value imo. had this been under $250, then hell yeah! so Im going to skip the 1075t, the 1055t can oc to the same level, save myself $60-70 that will go into a new water block mentioned above. some retailers are taking pre-orders for the 1075t, cheapest I found was $267 usd. meh

Edit: Benchmark added
I think i have always had the Jmicron controller disabled. Could you refresh me on what it's called in the bios? I switched the card to the bottom and it worked for awhile but now it's back to crashing. I can however boot to another hard drive and have it work as an extra drive without crashing. Are you still problem free with your setup? Seems like this might be a driver issue rather than a problem with the Crosshair....

I also prefer the Nickel versions - I got the nickel plexi (pics in my profile) and It looks great with red liquid. There was limited POM version, but it was like 20-30 euro more expensive

Why the heck does it allow me to set it to 600? Oh well....I can shoot for 330x14 once I drop the temp down to -25c.....next weekend.

4.62GHz...that's the goal.
There aren't many 1090s that can do over 4200 easy - they either require some huge voltage jump, which makes them hard to cool even on water (mostly because of the sh***y thermal diode that makes me feel like I never know what is the real temp). And if you want to use Cool'n'Quite you have to use offset overvoltage, which is inferior to direct selection when it comes to OCing, at least in my opinion and after two days spent on trying to get to the same speeds I had with direct selection.

Yup, iss in my wishlist.

That's why I would love for the MoBo block to have Red acrylic so it matches.

I don't know if I'm going to be able to get a Red acrylic GPU block though. I may have to use another brand to get that. I know there is a brand that allows the mounting of an LED but I've forgotten the name off the top of my head but it's also at Performance as well. I'd like a full coverage block if I can get one for non Reference GPU.

+Rep for giving me the heads up though.

You can go above 340, but you have to drop the NB multiplier down some. Mine is stable @ 350, but have to bring NB down to keep it around 3Ghz. Doesn't really matter for my chip though, as mine is not 100% stable over ~4.25GHz

I've been kicking around the pros & cons of SSD's on this board, & had pretty much narrowed it down to either an OCZ RevoDrive, or a pair of OCZ Agility 2's in RAID. I took a look at the CFIV OM for the location of the PCI-e x4 slot, then looked inside the case, & realized that I have no clue where the x4 slot. Where is the x4 slot? I might as well ask if the Agility's will even work as RAID on this MB?

PCI-E x4 is the bottom red pcie slot, if you're running Xfire in #1+3 it'll be under your bottom (double slot?) video card unfortunately.

Crap. That eliminates that option. Time to dig more in to the Agility 2 RAID option.
