A question: would running card with different Express 2.0 x16 or Express 2.1 x16 have an effect with Lucid Hydra ? How about cards with different amount of memory ? DirectX ?
I think for best performance you would need to be looking at a GTX 480.

Well I got the parts yesterday and built it in about 4 hours total time.
It is a sweet maaaaachine!

ok so the specs are.
ASUS Crosshair IV Formula 890x Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition 3.5Ghz
8GB Gskill F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL memory
Corsair H50 Closed Loop CPU Cooler
XFX ATI HD-575X ZMF3 1GB Retail
Seasonic X650 Gold Power Supply
Intel X25-M 80GB SSD hard drive
ASUS DVD SATA Burner
Artic Silver 5 Thermal Paste
Coolmaster Storm Sniper Case

Now it takes me longer to do the wiring then anything else. I had the motherboard in and installed in the first 15 mins. Much of the time is spent opening packages. Anyways I installed everything and the case makes it a breeze since it has a bubbled back panel that give ample room even for the thick ATX 12 PSU cable. Channeling wasn't a issue at all, bu the only thing I didn't care for is the top of the PSU was right at the edge of the motherboard.
Overall the machine booted and I had to restart the Windows install a second time, so that cost me a bit of time. Once I got past that the speed of the install was super fast against the traditional drives. From there I played with the tweaks a bit and she is running smooth and fast 3.5Ghz right off. I unlocked the four cores and hit the turbo and wallaa 3.79Ghz.
WoW took forever to install on the updates but I installed the Gamer tweak for the LAN the actuall downloading speed nearly tripled from 210k up to 600+ K d/l speed.
I go to say I would build another in a second. I almost went with the AMD 1090T x6 core but after reading I don't thing the 6 core would have done much anyways, other then benchmarks.
In either case i can overclock this machine easy to 4 Ghz without much tweaking.


Update I have it running stable at 3.8Ghz at 37C

Look up Reference Clock Overclocking guides. I think there are other voltages that are important for you to increment other than Vcore.
Any news on this?

I'm really interested, I am about to buy a new RAM, and if you helped me fix my issue, you would save me 105€ from the new RAM..

Guys still no luck getting windows to install but I get a message saying install failed because 'A critical system driver is missing or corrupt'

File : \\windows\\system32\\DRIVERS\\vdrvroot.sys

Any ideas?

EDIT : MY CPU IS NOT ON THE CPU SUPPORTED LIST ON THE ASUS WEBSITE??

virtual drive root.sys

That sounds like a corrupt installation disc to me. Everything could have been working before because you haven't tried installing RAID prior to this so it was never needed.

I have heard of this issue on downloaded RC1 candidates for Windows 7. In other words Pirated copies or very early copies of Windows 7. The file gets fixed during update but thats not good enough for a fresh install.

If you have a legit copy of Windows, consider downloading a different ISO (I think Microsoft hosts them too) and reburn, and you use your CD-Key with the new copy.

Thats true your CPU is only a few months old and your motherboard came out quite a while ago. I am sure if everything is showing up in BIOS it obviously recognizes it? You did mention before it had? I still recommend a BIOS update after Windows is installed.

No news unless you have already done it? I was suggesting you do it.

I've had this issue before, I'm wracking my brain as to what solved it. I believe this worked.
1) powerdown n unplug system, remove data cable(s) from hdd(s)
2)boot into bios.
3)save and exit.
4)repeat step (1) in reverse
5) boot as usual to install os.

It's installing

Minus a stick of RAM though

Thing is when testing each stick individually the system works and installs loverly, And then as soon as I run both sticks together it fails the install again, faulty board?

I've installed RAID on my MSI 790FX GD70 and my old Gigabyte EP45 Extreme motherboard with this disk with no problems at all. The disk also works fine in the other machines I've tested it on.

A BIOS update would be good but after having a look on the ASUS website there's not a BIOS update listed that adds official support for my CPU

FFS, BSOD 13% into the install with some cache error

Pissing me off now, brand new machine for xmas and I can't fecking use it
post #6450 of 13131
Anyone happens to have the same issue as Ragin Cain or me with FSB abovee 256 motherboard not booting?

I thought it was a RAM issue, but it appears it might not be the RAM, and maybe some voltages are not right, anyone?
