I twist mine back and forth a little at a time to loosen it
A lot of the time if you just pull it straight out the cpu will come out with the hsf
The cpu is hard to get off hsf if it is stuck on the hsf and out of the socket

This is OCN we all live to try new stuff!
Yes Tweeky, that's all well and good; but my goal is not to blow the engine but to finish the race. I need my computers to work for work. No computer, no income. So I must be a bit more conservative than a hobbyist, which I definitely am not. Completely no desire to hurt feelings, just a clarification of my position.

HeadMixer, I did indeed see your post. I actually read all the posts.
However, as someone queried after your post, is the improvement in your SSD performance attributable to the BIOS update only?

Or are there other variables you did not mention? And please understand that in asking that question, I am only trying to be thorough, and definitely not critical. Also, I know from personal experience that when we are modifying, trying new things, or just trying to bring our rig back to life, we often do not document every single thing we try. I know I don't.

More succinctly put, is Bios 0705 the one and only reason your SSD improved so dramatically?

And for what it's worth, if you endorse this BIOS, then I will abandon my conservative, "wait until a technology is mature" way of doing things. Your word is good with me.

Well guys, tried doing the credit card trick and that didn't work. Ended up ordering a 1090t because I'm convinced it had something to do with me twisting the HSF like one guy said. In the future though... what should I do when removing the CPU? Should I try to unhook the lever and then pull the cpu out with the fan?

Also going to RMA the board as I'm pretty certain it's defective.

I don't need my computer for income, however I'm of the same opinion. Unless someone can convince me that it's worth updating the BIOS, I simply don't. Or of course, if I'm having issues and the update addresses those issues or has the possibility of fixing them.

Now the Crucial SSD 0009 firmware update - that WAS worth it! Increased speed by a ton, improved write latency, faster boot up times, improved throughput performance. It was already fantastic with the 0002 firmware.

Very helpful post! Why not do so on http://www.overclock.net/ssd/929553-...p-secrets.html

or Magic-Man's thread, though it's a bit dead now cause SSD's are "yesterday's news".

Yes Sir, It is.

First noted the issue on 6/13/11.
http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...l#post13860509

I even did the 0009 firmware update , no change.

I did the bench I posted 2 min after updating to 0705 BIOS.

BIOS 0705 is the only thing it could have been.

headmixer,

Thank you so very much. Oh how I just love to hear hard, cold facts, and not just "well, I kinda think that if ..."

Will update to 0705 BIOS.

Thank you for the notification. I'm reluctant to flash any BIOS that is not officially posted on the manufacturer's site. Since this is now official, I downloaded and flashed this as soon as I saw points 1 and 2 below. Improvements like that always get my hopes up, especially in the light of my recent struggles

5. Add Spanish and Russian to BIOS steup.
6. Support new CPUs. Please refer to our website at: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/c...Language=en-us
First preliminary tests indicate that I didn't receive the same kind of magical increase in SSD performance as headmixer did, but then again he seems to have one serious setup compared to my pitiful 60GB Agility 3

As for the improvements in my overclocking stability, time (tomorrow probably) will tell...

Stupid question. When you flash bios do you lose your saved profiles? I'm guessing yes, but would love the answer to be no.
