Hey guys.
Very new to this forum. Ive been lurking around for quite a while.
Ordered a CHV from newegg on tuesday. Got it on thursday morn. The second order with the rest of the needed parts was held up in processing yet only ordered 20 minutes later. It finally cleared tonight.
I was going to get an fx-8150 but I wasnt too amazed by the reviews. And if I got the fx chip i wouldnt have been able to afford the CHV. It would have been the MSI 990FXA-GD80.
Instead I ordered an 1100T. Ill wait and see what AMD has planned for the AM3+ and be ready when that comes.
For memory I ordered 2x 4gb Corsair Dominator GT's. And to replace my current BFG 500 watt psu I went with a Kingwin 1KW.
Actually most of these specs are in the sig. It will be built on probably Tuesday.
This is actually my first mostly new build. I usually buy my friends hand me downs and im just about done doing that.
My current rig is an amd dual core opteron 2.4 ghz (yeah server cpu i know)
On an asus a8nsli i believe. I bought it for real cheap with 2x 512 of corsair xms
Started with just the 8800gt and an ati hd2400. Bought the gts250 earlier this year also for cheap. Multiple cards mostly for dual monitor support and connection to my LCD tv on the wall for watching movies.
For now im stuck with the 8800 and the 250 on this new build.
Im not sure which road to go down when buying a new gpu. AMD or Nvidia. I currently only game lightly with like Borderlands and Rusty hearts on steam.
I want to get the new battlefield and MW3 and play them on some of the higher graphics settings.
I was thinking single 6970 or 6950 and do xfire within a year. It will be anywhere between a couple weeks to a couple months to get the first video card.
And i think this upgrade is pretty huge when compared to what im running now.
The video cards are pretty dated but right now they are the best part of my pc and soon to be the bottleneck.

Well once i get the rig up and running Ill join the club.
Cant wait.

I would suggest 2 - 6950 crossfire

The 6950 have a higher performance rating than the 6970

Or even 2 - 6850 crossfire will perform very good

Sigh, i refuse to buy a crosshair motherboard without the LCD Poster, but the Formula version is so pretty that it makes me rage.

The LCD feature is over rated if thats what is keeping you from it, you wont use it very often, and when you need to troubleshoot there are led lights that help on the board. I say get it if you like it that much, I had lcd display on my msi 890fxa-gd70 and when I would have a failed oc it was useless in telling me if it was ram or cpu etc.. If your troubleshooting FAILED components it would help, but asus has a method for this with led lights too. Im super happy with mine

I'm just being picky over it because i like having a blue mini-LCD panel showing me temperatures and whatnot, im somewhat of a cold freak and when a temperature goes way off i go check it asap.

Hello, guys and gals.

I trying to OC with the Bus Speed, but it seems to me that i can only manage to get up to 260 and get to windows and test, 265 wont get into windows.

What voltage do i have to change in order to gain more stability in the Bus Speed? VDDA? NB Voltage(chipset)?

It seems to me that 260 bus speed for this Mobo is too low, i've seen many people getting 300 bus speed with same board.

Thanks.

I tried 265 with NB@1.2v and VDDA @ 2.6v but no go.

With a 955 and 1330MHz ram 260 is probably as high as you will be able to go

It would probably take a selected Thuban CPU and the right 2400MHz Ram with all the necessary skills to get to 300 stable for this would be extreme overclocking

These skills would have to include extreme cooling too

Errr.. what? I feel like a noob now.

As far as i know:

the fsb doesnt depend on the processor but instead on the mobo. ( maybe i'm wrong?) I thought the clock generator what inside the chipset (990fx in this case), and then the processor would multi that value.

Same goes for the RAM.

Why would a 1333mhz RAM make me get lower fsb?

with 300 mhz FSB lets say, and using the 1:2 DRAM ratio ( or 2x), I would get 300fsbx2 = 600 MHZ x2(DDR) = 1200mhz ddr3 which is < 1333mhz. What's the problem there?

And whats wrong with a 955?

300x10,5 = 3150mhz (stock 3200mhz). How come that's not stable? processor frequency-wise.

I would be happy if i could get into windows with 300 fsb, but the thing is i cant even get past POST with that fsb, not even 265.

Maybe bad mobo? ( not damaged) just sucks, just like some processor OC less than others?

Thanks, Tweeky.

If every item was near perfect and properly cooled and the entire system worked in near perfect harmony higher FSB would be possible

I have a 955 but I like my 1090T better

At high frequency all parts of the system have to work in near perfect harmony

Whats the max fsb you can get with the 955 and the 1090t? Is there any difference?
