Yes I see one major problem. You are reading CPU temp not core temps. You most likely have about 5 degrees to go. That is prob about .04v so you should be able to push that further. Make sure core unlocker is disabled both in bios and with the button so that you can see the core temps then add 10* to the readings. That will show you what you actually need to be going by.

I am sure you mean well but core temps are always HOTTER than CPU temp. If he adds about 3c to his cpu socket, that is a good estimate of actual safe core temps. He really needs to back it down to prevent damage.

Thanks for the helps.

eclipseaudio4 - Changing the core unlocker switch didn't help show core temps. I think there's something glitzy with this particular software.

RagingCain - CPU is running idle at either 36 C. or 41 C. depending on whether you're looking at CPUID H/W monitor or PC Probe II. During rendering in Premiere CS5, it only goes up about 12 C. I don't have any games to try on this machine, but since mostly it will be used for video editing work, I'd think these settings should be pretty safe.

I'd like to know if there is a water cooling setup for this m/b and cpu that would do a nice job for something less then the $700 setup I seen here somewhere. I would maybe be interested for $200-$400 or so, but not more then that.

Hey guys, first off i want to say thank you all for helping! i have tried front usb and back usb ports i even took out my mouse, keyboard and headset to test those slots but still same error, im using the most up to date drivers from asus website on windows 7
Also about the bios, i have reset bios back to stock and still nothing
my ipod works fine and shows up as a removable storage device.. Someone mentioned googling for a solution and i did that for ages before turning to you guys

Ohh and i tried two other usb cables


I just plugged in my Canon 400D and it said drivers could not be installed but it still shows up as a removable device
and my usb Flash drive flashes ONCE then wont flash again at all, Doesn't even get the error anymore..
Could this be a problem with the motherboard?

Well, went to bed last night and left the computer to run a PCMark Vantage benchmark by itself. Woke up to find what I would see as a reasonable score -- 14,648. I know I can push this system more, but right now it is super stable and that's of primary importance to me and what I will be using this for. I suppose I'd like to run at 4.2 or more, but I just don't see that happening with the memory I purchased for this rig, and without water cooling.

Might try to do more, but then again I might just call this good.

Thanks everyone.

Stay tuned Rodg, I am going to try and hit 4.2 GHz tonight or tomorrow. I want to hit 1000 overclock. I will do my best to get it stable, but its going to take some work on my behalf. I also have that thread in my signature, of settings I used to get to 4 GHz. I will be posting 4.2 results in there eventually.

Keep checking back there. I feel 4.2 is acheivable with an H50, which is only slightly better than your AirCooling.

The Noctua Arrives today!!!!!! I love new stuff. I am going to paper rock scissors to decide on opening it, or go for water cooling.

Oh, I'll be around -- maybe more then some would like, he, he. As to the Noctua, which did you order? Mine is NH-U12P. I meant to order the NH-D14, after seeing it on the newegg video, but made a mistake. Good I did I guess, as I don't think the D14 would have fit in this Lanboy Air box. If I do water cooling, I'd like to do everything, but not for a bunch of bucks. I looked at the Corsairs water cooling, but just doesn't look substantial enough -- Maybe I'm wrong.

Anyways, I'm happy. More is always better I suppose, but at my time of life, sometimes more is just harder to carry around ;>).

Regards to all, I am new to the forum and would like to ask a few questions regarding to memory for my system. It is an ASUS Crosshair IV formula, AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition, Noctua NH-U12P, Power supply Corsair 750W, nVidia GeForce GTX 470 and a Seagate Barracuda 1TB. I do not plan to OC so for me 1066 or 1333 memory is enough or do I have to get higher speed memory? And would like to have 8GB in two 4GB units (not occupy the four slots in order to get more in the future if needed). Any recomendation on which memory to buy that is compatible with this sytem.
Thanks to everybody to pay attention to this message.

@PBONAY,

Check out ASUS QVL for Memory/Brands which are the best/most reliable for the Fomula which is here:
Formula QVL Link

See one you like, then try and find it on Newegg or wherever. Your best bet is to stick with QVL, unless you see a 4GB stick you really like not on the QVL, then I would advise going to manufacturers forums to see if someone else knows if it works for the board.

pbonay since ddr3 1600 is almost the same price as 1333 is not worth to save money there and you will be more Future proof, i suggest same GSkill 1600 CL7/8 if you can grab the 7/7/7/24 its one of the best pair around for the price AMD Loves low timings. About the amount of Ram 4GB is more than enough for everything the only reason you can give use to 7/8Gb is if you are using CAD or photoshop with a very high res. More ram will not give you better performance keep that in mind. For real bump in performance grab a SSD for the OS and most used app's and you are all set. (like X-25V cheap and very good)
