I thought this north bridge issue was supposed to be fixed? I tried to install xp and when I was done my nb was sitting at 51c. Is that normal? I did have to reinstall seaveral times due to some issues.

doesnt look like there is any 4GB ram in the QVL. you recommend sticking with the 2x2GB?

Been paying attention on and off to this thread so figured I'd post my results with a 1100T finally shoved in.

I took out my 955 about 4 hours ago and shoved in a 1100T.

Didn't mess with any voltages was in and out of the BIOS for only about 10-15 seconds. Everything else is stock BIOS settings besides HDD boot order.
-Set ram to 2000 instead of 1600 (9,10,9) (4x2GB Corsair Dominator Ram)
-Turned off turbo core
-Randomly set multiplier to 15.5 (3888MHz/core)

No drama and completely stable. Full coverage Koolance MB block and CPU.





can't wait to have more time to fiddle with it.

that tis a bit high there, if it does not come down you might want to try giving the screws a turn or two might just be loose worse case pull the heatsink, if i can do it anyone can

I sit around 40-41*C. Maybe 46-47*C under stress. This is with the mobo's stock cooler BUT initially upon purchase of the mobo I was in the low and high 50's respectively. All I did was make sure all the screws of the NB/SB cooler were tightened properly. I did find two screws rather loose so I just tightened but not too much (to prevent stripping of the screws). I also gently pushed down a bit on the coolers before tightening the screws. I wanted to make sure that there was good contact between the factory installed thermal pads and the chips/coolers. That made all the difference for me.

I appreciate it. Ive just had so much go wrong with my build so far Im afraid something is going to go wrong. If all else fails Ill reapply the Thermal paste and grind down the standoffs. I really dont want to do that though, as Im a noob.

I'll post back once I get the new board and hook everything up. Thanks for the help, all.
As an update, I got the new board in and the RipJaws work fine - I even got 8 more GB since NewEgg just had to have that 15% off deal a few weeks ago so far so good with only one main annoyance so far...

I've looked around for others with this issue but it seems to only be me, unless I missed mention of it someplace - has anyone had issues with the sound on their Formula IV? I've ready about the MIC issues, which I haven't tried on mine yet, but I use a USB headset, so I'm not too concerned about that.

My issue is that it almost sounds like the audio "goes to sleep" or something, and then comes back the next time a sound is produced. For example, you know how sometimes when you first turn your speakers on and they make that kind of interference type noise - that noise that just sounds like speakers first coming on? Basically any time my computer hasn't produced any sounds for a few minutes and then does, it makes this noise.

It's possible it's my speakers (Logitech Z-640 6 Speaker Surround Sound System), I suppose, though that would be pretty coincidental since this only started after I completed this new build. I'll hook them up to my old build again to verify, but I'm pretty sure I already tried this a couple of weeks ago when I first noticed it.

For the record, I installed the audio drivers from the ASUS disc, but did NOT install the Sound Blaster software. I've never cared much for their software, but if someone says that that will fix the issue, then okay, though that would seem odd to me.

Hopefully something stupid easy - any ideas?
