Shouldn't be a problem short term. If you don't niggle with the buttons for OC'ing then the buttons are a minor nuisance but nothing spectacularly annoying. It's primarily accessing everything that may be an issue. If you're only running one GPU it's nothing though. It's just when XFiring that you won't have a lot of wiggle room between the 2nd GPU and everything below.

Anyone running the AI tool on the Formula? I've gone off and downloaded it from Asus, but would there be a major compatibility issue if I try to run it?

Okay great, thanks. SO these special feature buttons and such are all at the bottom? its unlikely i will be needing them - will i have to update the BIOS to be able to use X6 processors? any news on the unliley possibility that some Bulldozer processors will be able to be used on AM3 boards?

Is there any way to delete any of the OC profiles. I looked through the manual and it doesn't say anything about how to delete them. I ask this because i had a nice stable 4Ghz. OC with all my settings that i wanted, so i wanted to save them so i could do a bit more tweeking. Well, i never used this before and think i zigged when i should have zagged and i'm back a stock settings. Even if you set BIOS defaults none of the profiles changes. I'm having a hard time figuring this out. I like the idea of saving that perfect OC but am running a bit slow this morning. Anybody got anything, or hell, even use OC profiles?

I'm not sure. I believe the board will operate but I think that you do have to update the BIOS. Though Asus might have upgraded to 1304 which I believe is compatible with Thuban CPUs'. Someone who runs that CPU on our board should be able to clue you in when you're ready to roll.

Yup, all buttons are at the bottom of the Board on the Formula. The only one that isn't is the Memory reset button, or "Go" Button.

You will probably have to disable the Core unlocker feature because I'm pretty sure it comes pre-engaged. At least mine did so I had to disable it before I went about trying to overclock.

I guess i was wrong about what side it was coming from but the underside is just as hot.
That is quite hot. I am only reading ~50 at the same spot(with BOINC running) but I have removed and replaced the TIM. Is the little fan plugged in?

* 120x120x25mm
* 113.11 CFM
* 3400 RPM
* 46.5 dBA
* 0.53 amps
* Maximum Air Pressure 10.92 mm H²O
* 12v DC
* PWM 4 pin connector

I cant find the specs on max start-up amps for the ASUS CHIV Formula PWM connector
fan connectors suport 2 A max and a total 7 A to all connectors
see page 2-35 in the formula manual

I believe i found the cause of the high temptures
This is well beyond me. I really need advice.
Everything in the bios is set to default
It does not show this in the previous screenshot but the vcore voltage is 1.22 volts
this voltage tends to jump everywhere in the Sensor Recorder. Usualy between 1.2 and 1.303 while on defaults (auto)
I just realized that this voltage should be around 1.38 if im not mistaken for the 1100T Processor

What i did was manualy change the voltage from auto to 1.38

This corrects the tempture of the area probed to 45-50 C
Even during a realtime full load test the probe tempture droped sharply and quickly.

Now when i put the CPU through the large FFT test the voltage sensor jumps even more from 3.8 at idle to either 1.50-1.68 at load OR drops back down to 1.28 at load
This is beyond my logic

Not to mention that the CPU tempture is even hotter at 65c+ because of the extra voltage from 1.5 volt jumps.

Am i misunderstanding something here? Shouldnt it stay remotely near the voltage i set it to?

Perhaps im too late and the high 90c temps damaged something already?

I greatly appreciate your help guys. This is getting me pretty upset. Ive been through computer hell the last week with a DOA MSI board and now this.
