[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 631

post #6301 of 13131
Just a question: what's the best bios (OC wise) for the IV Formula?

I searched but the only answer I found is for the Extreme version...

Hmmmm...well the block will definitely fit a reference card no dramas but you said it was the back plate and a few can do solders that killed the beast? Maybe if xfx will ship a new one just run a couple of synthetic spacers to give the backplate some clearance. Also if you give me the mounting distances between holes in the pcb I'll measure up the 6970 when it arrives and maybe we'll be in luck. The 4870 and 5870 reference cards shared the same dimensions for the holes so some water blocks were cross generational.

Hey mate, the fastest clocking formula in the club is running bios 1102 [IOSFINI]
and he's pulling CPU:1090T @ 4.435GHz, CPU/NB @ 3360MHz
But that's with a chilled water set up.

Hope this helps

The metal that they use on the back of the cards. The points were a little big.

Problem is mine is non-reference

Okay thanks, +rep.

Just updated to 1102, I'll play with my OC and see if it's any better.

What do you people think: which would be fastest on the extreme - 2@580 or 2@6970 or 580+6970 ?
I dont belive you.

Have you or anyone else running Xfire noticed microstutter? If so how bad is it?

Hey guys, having a bit of a compatibility issue with my crosshair iv formula and my Apogee GT. Was hoping anyone here had any info for me.

The instructions included with the apogee say that removing the motherboard from the case is not necessary because of the nuts that pass through the motherboard. So, no back plate is needed. Well here is my problem, I have no nuts going through my motherboard, so the block has nothing to screw onto.

I bought the apogee and the 1090t from a user here who used them together, so I thought they were 100% compatible but I guess it involves the type of motherboard you have too?

Am I missing something here, or will these parts just not work together?

Sorry for the noob questions, but I am new to all of this and a bit stressed to be honest.
