Quick question, can you still get the right (CPU) performance without touching the RAM settings? I know they're somewhat linked, I'm just curious as to what happens if you tweak the other stuff and leave RAM at default.

For me there was no difference. As I mentioned before the ONLY thing I DID change on the DRAM was the Command Rate (CMD) (from 2 down to 1).

But to add to your comment, the only way you're going to know is step out there (like myself) and do it, and then do some render tests with Geekbench, Cinebench and other apps out there that will give you some scores that you can compare to find out the differences. If you don't try, you'll never know. All I can tell you is that I'm where I need to be now and for that I'm grateful.

Hi Mac,

I've ordered my GA-X58A-UD7 (rev 2.0), and it should be here in the next day or two.

That said, I was wondering what you are using for North and Southbridge cooling, as well as MOSFET cooling?

I've got a Coolit Vantage A.L.C. unit that just arrived which I'm going to mod. and blend with a Feser 360 rad (so I'll have the equivalent of a 480 rad) with push/pull fan configuration, all mounted in my Silverstone TJ07 case.

At this point I've only been thinking of liquid cooling the CPU, and then air cooling the Northbridge with a Swiftech MCX159-CU (passive or with low dBa fan).

MOSFET cooling: I'm planing on using Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive/Epoxy to glue on copper heatsinks, but haven't ordered any as yet since I don't know exactly what will/won't fit correctly.

Any recommendations or assistance in working out a solution would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

i have a question for all you UD7 owners(assuming its alright for me to ask questions)

how well does the silent pipe northbridge cooler keep the chipset cool with say, a 5970 under it?

im going to be buying a UD9 and as far as i know the layout is near to identical when concerning the nb cooling.

I use this, but it's for watercooling. I wouldn't personally epoxy anything, because you may need more cooling later and you could damage your board removing it.

Good day someone can explain technical jargon in the following
and how parameters affect the stability in OC?
I managed to find only that, but nothing that +
can help me understand how best to go PUSHED OC setup
I ask especially for veterans and masters Overclocking

CPU Clock Drive [700mV] [1000mV]
PCI Express Clock Drive [700mV] [1000mV]
CPU Clock Skew [0PS]
IOH Clock Skew [0PS]

CPU-Clock Drive
amplitude frequency of the bus between the chipset North Bridge and
CPU

PCI-Express Clock Drive
amplitude frequency of the bus between the chipset North Bridge and PCI-
E.

-CPU Clock Skew and MCH Clock Skew
parameters set the time shift between the processor and
the chipset North Bridge clocks.

I have an Intel X25-M Mainstream SSDSA2MH080G2R5 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive, so which port do I use on the motherboard? The reason I'm asking is because i downloaded the SSD toolbox and it thinks my SSD drive is in a RAID which is impossible since I only have one! SO what am I doing wrong?
