...lol....i just want to be sure that the jump worth it ,even if i know that it s very fun to try to OC a new cpu wink.gif

I went from 1090T to the 8150 because I thought I blew my thuban but turned out i corrupted the bios. I liked the thuban because you could get the NB freq to 3000MHz, however since going to the 8150 at 4.5 with a higher IMC and lower voltage I am happy for the change, and may even move to the 8350 if consistent gaming FPS (10-20 in certain games) is continued to be reported by owners.

When I had XP I used to turn pagefile off, totally forgot about that. Thanks a lot, mate!

Are there any particular phrases which helped in them identifying the issue through their knowledge base?

So I got a relatively new employee after having a bios corruption issue that i mentioned above. Thought I blew my 1090t at first, so I purchased the 8150, at the same time called Asus for a new chip that my board qualified for. The rep first told me I had to pay for it, I "politely" told him he was wrong, referred to this website, and said all early rev 1 crosshair v boards get a free replacement. He put me on hold, then came and back and said yes sir you are correct, we will send it to you if you pay shipping. Good enough it came with Version 1003 and was intended to improve stability specifically w/ LLC, and have a compatible Bulldozer BIOS already flashed.

Once received all went well asides from it is not the easy piece to install I cam close to bending the prongs on installation and found it much easier to remove the second graphics card before installing

This is exactly the chip you need: http://us.estore.asus.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=3890 just try to get it for free!

I'm glad this question about power cabling was asked, plus the additional post with the theory around better power distribution by bringing the power connection closer to the element under load.

As I sit patiently waiting for UPS (I will never place an order withi Newegg again on a Tuesday, and gosh I hate UPS right about now), I have my HAF 932 on it's backside and observed system power connections as promised. For some reason, I rationalized that I could run my system with only the 24-pin and the 8-pin connectors. I may have had trouble POSTing initially with both the 8 and 4-pin connectors, just not quite sure. For all intents and purposes, the system ran fine with my OC settings for as long as I have had the C5F.



My Seasonic PSU has all the proper power connections needed for the C5F and I simply needed to connect both the EPS and Molex cables. A quick check shows a slightly higher 12V reading in the BIOS monitor (yay!).

I hope 750W is enough to properly OC a Vishera, if not, a new PSU would be another unanticipated expense.

Finally received the FX 8350 and installed it, mated with my Windows 8 spinner drive. if OC breaks the drive, I don't care.

I'm using the stock heatsink for now with BIOS set to defaults. I turned off a few items in the 3rd tab.

I'm having trouble believing the Core temps. I've used a number of programs like CORETEMP, HWMONITOR and HWINFO64. They all seem to give the same result of around 22C at idle using completely stock settings. The reason I'm so skeptical is that my 965 ran much hotter than this.

I thought I had disabled all of the power management in BIOS but will go back and look. There may be some settings visible I hadn't seen before.

If you haven't had a chance to play with this aspect of Vishera yet, the lowest Vcore I've seen in CPU-Z is 0.876V. The max value is 1.425V.

For grins I ran WEI and was nice to see 7.9. The 965 came in at 7.5. This was quick and I'm using it just to calibrate where the system is as I start into mild OC experiments.

Overall the experience was as expected. Fairly uneventful install.

I'd believe those temps. I've got a big cooler on my 8120, but I've noticed that it gets very cool/near ambient on idle, but then gets fairly toasty under load. Given that the underlying architecture is similar I suspect that'd they would have similar temperature spikes.

Asus published a PDF on BIOS settings Windows 8 Fastboot. What conditions need to exist in order to see those options on the C5F?
post #4398 of 9004
i thought fastboot was only on the new z series. i'll try to find more info on it, i'd like to know too

rog forums:
Will a UEFI update with Win8 fastboot appear?

No there won't be one, Fast Boot is a switch that is not on the regular CHVF Motherboard, Windows 8 may load faster than 7 on the Motherboard, but to get the full "Fast Boot" compatibility, you need to buy the CHVF-Z Motherboard.

there was postings in this thread after bulldozer came out and between bios 0705 and 0813 in that time pried

check the white sticker next to the 24-pin power connect last 4 numbers if its 0705 or earlier you will need a chip

the original chips did not have room for all the data to run all the code for bulldozer

if you have an old original chip you may have buy a chip from asus
