Rampage III Extreme X58 Information thread - Page 46

post #451 of 1800
Has anyone tried turning off unused PCI-E slots? Would that help in using less power? Or maybe needing less IOH PCI-E voltage or PCI-E Frequency to stabilize an overclock? Or maybe decrease heat output by the NB?

I turned off PCI-E switches 2, 3, and 4 and I just ran 10 passes of LinX. I'm still testing and playing with these setting so results may vary. Take this with a grain of salt, but I'm pretty sure turning off unused PCI-E slots uses less watts and voltages, so I was able to lower these voltages and clocks:

CPU PLL has nothing to do with PCIE Slots. also, I doubt it will make a difference.

But I have a question about Crossfire

I was able to make my crossfire setup work (driver issue) If I overclock both of my cards , I get the BSOD message 0x00000116 , what do I need to raise?
-IOH Voltage
-IOH PCIE Voltage
-Or do I need to plug the ez_plug Molex connector power for multiple VGA Cards?

Had a really wierd problem this morning.....

Last night was great got my 930 to 4 GHz 1 hour prime95 stable played AION for like 4 hours no problems everything running smooth as silk.

woke up this morning however and when i started my pc the frst time the screen stayed black. I held the button down swtiched it off and rebooted.

It started normally at first then i got a message saying that iROG was updating flash??? so i thought ok let the % get to 100 it restarts from 0%??? so i think patients dude let it run through again and its starts from 0% again?? i do this 4 times before thinking stuff it and switching it off (3 sec hold on button) and then it boots normal as? anyone know whats happening here? maybe a bios issue?

ps on the last normal start all my bios settings were restored to normal.

I like everything but the green fluid, thows everything off. Nice cabling and sleeving job. And I really love the DD case. That's the rad your friend painted for you, correct? Looks sweet. I still haven't decided if I like the EK block, it looks good, but I would like to see the Koolance one on a board to compare to it. Switch out the fluid with either clear or red and I think it will look uber sweet.

I am waiting on blue coolant and will switch it out when I get it. I am making a reservoir out of a skull-shaped vodka bottle so I will need to empty the loop out in few a weeks.

I think my NB/SB blocks are making good contact:
