There is nothing wrong with that kit. And I DID give the option of going with a solid GSkill Ripjaw kit. You can get those as high as 2000 series if you want.

I'm just thinking that the triple channel is being wasted on your board. That's all. Sorry to strike a nerve.rolleyes.gif

~Ceadder:drink:

im hearing you, dont misunderstand me..
i was only asking about the compatibility of my kit with the CH IV...and you dont reply about that.

I red Your option about the gskill, but i didnt understand which kit you were talking about.. you just say "buy a g.skill kit" ..
it was hard for me to find that corsair dominator gt 6-6-6 kit and it was like you told me "your kit is not good, buy another kit,no matter what"
you didnt talk about latency, frequency.. nothing; and you didnt tell me why i would have to prefer another kit.
i m here to hear and learn everything, but i dont like to do one thing without a reason.
i would appreciate if you give me more reasons to prefer another kit, thanks smile.gif

I hit 3.6 and 3.8 with ease but 4.0 gives off more heat and I been fighting that like Don Quixote chasing windmills.cool.gif lol

~Ceadder:drink:

nope..there are not AMD edition...where im at right now, rarely sell AMD edition.
I was looking for Gskill ripjaw but no luck..
Im using the rig for Dice (dry ice) run and sometimes gaming....
I just want a ram that would be able to run 8sec on superPI without overclocking my CPU to 5.5Ghz

Dude just buy them from the Egg...rolleyes.gif

...j/k Mate sorry just need a little humor right now cause I'm in short supply of good mood at the moment.stitchfacesmiley.png

Well anyhoo, yes those SHOULD work. They're basically Dominators and those work well with the Crosshair. Cool?smile.gif

@Room... And now to why I'm not in a very good mood. I've been having issues with my top Exhaust fan which is plugged into header Opt_2. It spins up @ 700-800 cfm. Well it started acting up but the fan works fine. It runs and it's lit. It just wasn't reporting RPM and this only happened sporadically for the last week until yesterday when I dismantled the MoBo from the cabinet. Today I set it on the table for my pic shoot and video update and while there I swapped it with my door fan. It's running and it's lit and it's reporting speed on the Cha_1 header. The top one is working beautifully but I'm gobsmacked right now because the header is solid it's not the least bit loose. And it's not reporting in the BIOS either. Just shows up as N/A like there isn't even a fan there.

So it looks like it's most likely the board. What peeves me is that I've got Win 7 and it's going to give me fits when I swap the board.angrysmiley.gif

So I'm off to Asus to start up the RMA process, unless someone has some thoughts on BIOS 1304. Could that have thrown a monkey in the wrench?confused.gif

Pay no attention to Cha_1. Door was off and my door fan goes there.

how is this onboard sound card? Is it worth me upgrading to logitech z5500s with the onboard sound?

I like it so far. I have the X-fi Titanium Professional set to a side for the moment and in all reality I can easily live without it for now. Gaming, music, video all sound nicely with the on-board sound. Give it a try. If you feel you need more, then invest. Just make sure its more than enough for your needs. If it is, then you could invest that money you would have spent on a top notch sound card in something else.

EDIT: To answer your speaker question... I would say yes, they will move those just fine. I have some Altec Lansings and they sound awesome with the on-board. Headphones just as well. I have considered upgrading to the Bose Companions (I have space limitations) and using the on-board card just the same.

Re-install your driver and maybe check that your speaker cable is connected fully. Clean off the speaker cable -lug off with some rubbing alcohol and squeeze a bit of compressed air into the mobo speaker connectors as well. See if you can try a different set of speakers and see if you still get the pop. If you do and the new driver does not fix the issue, you may have a problem with the on-board sound.

Last thing to check... try using a different media player as well.

It's a power spike. We have them too and it's usually when a wall switch is thrown. More noticeable when using speakers that have unshielded connections but I've heard it happen with 3.5 jacks too. Generally on less expensive boards though. Mine does it occasionally which is weird cause you wouldn't expect that from these boards.

Of course you wouldn't expect the RPM sensor to just up and quit working either. doh.gif

So anybody got any ideas with this RPM sensor issue I've got? Could it be a BIOS issue? I recently went over to 1304 because I've been having stability issues and flashed to the latest BIOS to give myself the ability to move up to Thuban if I feel like it.

Basically Opt 2 just stopped reporting the speed of the fans that get plugged in there. If I had another header in that area that wasn't covered by my GPU(nitpicky gripe of mine) I would just move the fan to that spot and forget about it. Especially since I flashed a different Boot Pic into the Post sequence.

Would like to know before tonite what I might do to fix the issue(if possible) or whether RMA would be the thing to do and if Asus is still doing hot swap RMA and what that entails. Thanks.
