1. The default phase setting is where you want to stay, and I would advise you to keep it there until you can achieve your immediate goal of an OC equivalent to that on your previous mobo. You do have a good case, and I assume good airflow as well. I mention this because those heat sinks coming off of those VRM's and FET's will get VERY hot. I keep mine at extreme only because it's one less variable to worry about. Just make sure your PSU is in good shape. Keeping it set on extreme will help stablize voltages and this is one feature of the CHV that makes it a top of the line board. It will take a beating and keep on ticking (despite so many negative reports, a "how much I love my CHV" thread wouldn't hold much interest but the rest of us in the 99% love this board and don't have any problems with it). The point is, there are so many variables with this board, I have found that focusing on the fundamentals you do know will give you more confidence and experience in a few months so that you will have a "feel" for the board and be able to "intelligently" experiment with the phase settings and other options (wait until you get to really play with your DRAM timing AND drive control settings!). As I said before, this board is not for the faint of heart. The biggest problem most have with this board is that they want to play with all the bells and whistles from the start and then wonder why they can't get the results they want. There are still options on this board I haven't touched yet, and I've owned my board since the first week it came out. Sorry about the rambling, it's the teacher in me that won't retire.

2. I am an audiophile, and have never liked "board audio." I have always had my sound card installed and have it hooked up to my speakers. Not that my logitech system is great, but the "real" sound card makes a serious difference. No help for you on this one, but I haven't seen any complaints here or any other forum. I think the SB X-Fi drivers are part of the utilities menu on the CD and are used after you install the realtek driver.

Have more fun!

So far I am really liking this board. Extreme, I believe is the default setting on the phases. I'd have to go into the bios and double check. But I know for a fact I haven't touched those settings though. Now, when you say hot, how hot are we talking? The way I have everything in my case set-up, my rad is an intake and the top 2 fans are exhaust.(I also have the front and very bottom fans as an intake, but that is irrelevant to this exact point) Anyway, With the airflow in my case I doubt I am getting sufficient air flowing to the VRM and NB heatsinks. are there any sensors on the board that show these temperatures by any chance?


I will whip out the driver cd and check the utilities tab and see what I can find. Thanks for that answer.

Actually, having your bottom fans as intake as well as your rad fan, along with your top two fans as exhaust is perfect. Click on my rig picture and you'll see that I have my top rear fan as intake and have mounted my rad in the top front of my case with two exhaust fans on the other side of the rad! Having the back fan as intake blows cool air directly on the heatsinks and keeps the top video card cool. It would be nice if your rig picture showed your CHV in place!

Great stuff.

No, there is no place to measure the VRM temps but there is a trip if they overheat. I think you would have to shut off the fans and run your processor at 5.0 gHz to overtemp those sinks. I was just pointing out that the heat needs to be dissapated so the rest of the interior can stay cool.

Great stuff.

Yea bottom 140 as intake. 120 intake at front in front of my HDD cage(bottom half of the cage removed) I have my rad on the rear of the case as an intake with the two top 140mm fans as exhaust. Just that with how thick the rad is the heatsinks are in that little area that doesnt get the most air. I am however thinking of setting my rad to exhaust on the rear, taking the front top exhaust fan out and leaving the rear top exhaust there and putting an intake fan into my 5.25" bays to blow air across the motherboard and into the rad from the front of the case. I have to find a few broken fans though and make a shround so I can put it far enough into the bays so it is effective. Think thats a good idea? It'd definitely be positive pressure. More so than it is now.

And I know! I have to get update pics of my rig. I wanting to ditch the blue LED fans I have for some with red led's, or a combo of red and white LED fans. Either that or get some non-led fans and do a softer white led strip that will accent the colors of the hardware just enough. I don't really like the super bright "look at me" lights but want something that shows everything off but remains elegant. ya know? As soon as I get everything figured out Ill be sure to get some update pics of this thing thumb.gif

here are a few shots I took of the board when I got it though! Man this thing is sexy in person drool.gif one of the best looking AMD boards ive seen IMO and I love how they worked part of the ROG logo into the heatsinks. Cellphone quality pics dont do it justice though.

Ahh ok. for a second there you had me worried. haha I mean when I run prime 95 with my side panel off and point my infared temp guage at the heatsinks right next to the cpu I get right around 100*F at stock settings(vcore is at 1.32-1.33v under load)

This may have already been answered but I am hoping someone can explain some temperature monitoring stuff to me.

I am using the CPUID Hardware Monitor to watch my temperatures when testing my overclocks. Under the temperatures section it lists "CPU". Is this the CPU socket temperature? And then the temperatures listed under the processor are supposed to be accurate under load, correct?

1. Under the temperatures section it lists "CPU". Is this the CPU socket temperature? It is the CPU die temp, but yes it is separate from the individual core temps which you see further down. In most rigs, the CPU die temp is usually about 15c higher than the core temps under normal operating conditions.

2. And then the temperatures listed under the processor are supposed to be accurate under load, correct? Yes. Here is a snippet of my desktop with HW Monitor on the left, HWInfo64 in the middle, and AIDA64 Extreme on the right. I'm using a standard IBT test to push all the monitors so you can compare and see for yourself how the die and core temps agree between the three; thus, leading me (at least) to believe that HWMonitor is accurate.

They'll get over 150f during a serious benchmark!

Anyone who achieved 4,2 Ghz with 1090t or 1100t using watercooling? Can he tell me the voltages and the LLC sets?
