[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 475

post #4741 of 13131
well i was hating this board, because when i first got it all setup my NB temps were at a whopping 59/61*c well i think the TIM they use has a break in period. because now a few days after use, my temps have dropped to 47*C, i talked to live support and they said anything under 65*C is normal and OK.

Thnx, I'll pull it out of the box again and read it through, honestly was a little confused by their compatibility graph the first time I read it, but I'll spend the time to figure it out, heh.

Yeah I tried with the patch mod and still wasn't working.
But if I have HydraLogix working correctly then I won't be able to use the physx patch or??? Not sure I would want to try this 8800 GTS as anything but physx dedicated since it would probably just slow down the 5xxx's.

I think there is definitely a cure time for the TIM they use. When I first booted up and idled I was thinking, oh great, going to have to fix the NB again....but after a week or so of moderate use I was much more comfortable with the NB temps.

Hey Guys

I've a question about de CrossHair - Is the NB & SB temperature problem fixed right now or do I have to expect problems with this mb?

And my other issues is about the VIA chip - I read somewhere that there are some driver & sound problems with the on board chip. Is that true?

Thanks
Best regards

depends which crosshair your talking about? the formula or the extreme?

i thought my extreme had NB issues but apparently it has a break in period. my NB temps were at 61*C when i first installed the board, and a few days of use later the temps are now down to 42*C-46*C


as far as the Formula goes, it depends where you buy it, if you buy a crosshair IV Formula from a store thats had it on the shelf since release date. then chances are high it will have the NB issue

I'm talking about the "non extreme" Edition. Mh, so the newer ones haven't got anymore the NB issue?

Cant say for sure. But Asus knows about the issue, so i think they wouldve fixed it by now.

Easiest way to buy one would be to get one use from somebody and have them send you a screen shot of the NB temps.

ok I think I just hit the FSB roof somewhere around 275 because 286 nor 300 will be stable even with the cpu about 2.8 and gratuitous amounts of voltage.

too bad the NB multi isn't unlocked to over 10x on the formula...

As far as the NB heat issue on the non extreme, it really is a easy fix. Removing the Heatsinks and filling off the stand offs is just a few minutes and super easy to do. Really no harm of damaging anything at all.

I mean of course, we shouldn't have to go through this, but I really try to stress that it's nothing to be discouraged at you know what I mean? The most mine sees is 51-53ºc depending on room temperatures at 2.6 GHz NB speed.
