I'll show you mine if you show me yours lol
I might go pick up a 945 quad in a few weeks...ASUS boards on clearance at Microcenter for like 38 dollars lmao!!!!

AIR TESTING
I ran a few air tests because I know w few people were dying to see air numbers for my last review. All with clean OS's.
In light of the limit with the elpida ram I decided to opt for some lower frequency D9JNl ram for a lower latency and more htt headroom.

I was amazed to see over 3100mhz from the bios to windows on air.

Super pi 1m





Showing great efficiency for the clocks here. Over 4.6 is by no means easy.
In light of the high ambient temperature of 25C. I used the boards core lock feature to disable 4 cores resulting in an 8 degree drop in both idle and load temperatures. It's also easier on the board to push a high vcore through 2 cores rather than 6.



Super pi 32m



Again, PP is looking very good. Had to use the hypers here again for the added stability, they relieve a lot of stress from the imc as opposed to the high volt kit. 5 cores were clocked to 3.6 only the strongest core was used here. OK I admit it! I used the benchtec toolbox for this test. Ambient of 19C

Wprime 32m



Now this one was tricky to pull off but 4.5 was there for the taking. The air cooler could only handle the load for 1 quick run at a time so I had to up the clocks and voltages in windows. Voltage seems to fluctuate whilst using Toverclocker. Vcore was set to a real 1.608. Ambient of 19C


Seriously nobody else on ocn with one of these beasts?

EL GAPPO!

Your pro Biostar posts are a contributing factor to my decision to try them out. Got the TA890FX board. Looks like an awesome board, can't wait to build it.

BUT

QUick question, on your board, is the CPU locking lever pretty loose when there's no CPU in it? Will it lock at all when there's no CPU there? Mine is very loose for up down movement - and won't lock / catch on the plastci 'nub' or anything . . .

I haven't tried with a CPU in there yet - basically I don't want to go through the trouble of taking apart my other rig, only to have to put it back together to send this thing back. But that's maybe what I have to do!

Awesome overclocks!

Cheers. Once the cpu is in the tongue will clamp down on the cpu and give a good, tight, normal fit.


I actually had problems with foxconn sockets on gigabyte boards and removing coolers with thick paste or my phase evap head in particular and the cpu lifting straight out of the socket.

Slight differences with the lotes socket on this board seem to make it a lot easier. Haven't pulled a cpu out yet lol.

Everything has a cozy fit on this board

I dont think that'll happen, like many have said, the bios is the same as it was on previous boards. I've learned its ways and its not hard. stable as hell!

Well - Built my rig with the BioStar TA890FXE board last night! What a great board so far!

Couple things to note :

NOCTUA NH-D14 COOLER.
You'll have to flip it 180 degrees and move the silicone antivibration squares so that the heatpipes are not against the mosfet cooler. Also saying this, I don't think that it would've actually gone on properly if I had done it the 'right' way.

No worries - The noctua writing is now upside down, that is all.

LOOSE LOCKING LEVER on CPU Socket
It tightened up just like el gappo said / BIOSTAR said . . . saying that - it actually had some play laterally - so i pushed it towards the socket as much as I could and then it would lock very lightly without a CPU in there.

I am concerned about the lack of space between PIC-E slots 1 and 3 for crossfire setups . . . so I may use slot 4 for my other card, which will bring my PCI_E speed down, but I'm doubting it'll affect performance with todays cards - and if it does, probably minimally.

QUESTION / OPINIONS

I switched from my Gigabyte board to this one, just plugged in the harddrives - and rock and roll - Windows 7 installed all new drivers for all the onboard components and things seem to work great! You think I should run as is? or do a fresh install anyway?

Minor ISSUE

The backplate that comes with the board, once you put it on your case - the Motherboards audio jacks down't line up to it properly - So I had to do without the connection backplate . . . which I'm sure is fine.

OVERALL IMPRESSIONS

So far the board has been great to build on - the BIOS will take some getting used to, but the only reason someone would complain about it is because it's 'different.'

I love the POST code number display right on the board - it's also great for seeing your CPU temp. I had my case open while getting everything running, and it's a nice feature I thought I wouldn't care about . . . I could also see it being very useful for troubleshooting.

The SATA plugs on the side of the board make a good job of hiding cables. The cables I had were too thick, but the supplied cables are high end, locking and work great.

BIOS UPDATE - looks like there was a BIOS update the 29th of June, so I'll try installing that tonight.
