I'm feeding power to all 4 connectors, the fourth being the molex. I don't have a datapoint to say whether doing this or not is more suitable to stability tests. I opted to power all ports because I'm running a SLI config. If your PSU supports the cabling requirements, it certainly doesn't appear to hurt anything.

Since you are watercooling your system, is this the solution you've chosen? I don't see how this board will survive any high-end stress runs without supplemental cooling to that area.

nope....i dont use anything ....i have lot of fans in my case and the flow is quite impressive, + there s a fan on the backplate in the inwin dragon(this might probably help a little).....anyway for now all is nicely cooled wink.gif
but if i had something to cool i d go for this antec spotcool: even if it eats more place it s easy to change orientation and to obtain an accurate aiming on the parts you want to cool...

Yeah, no problem, I just wanted to understand what you were trying to accomplish.

As far as stress programs though, I wouldn't rank this one too high in terms of causing pain, unlike Prime95. But with Prime95, there's somewhat of a raging debate on whether or not the FX architecture is handled properly by that program.

I'll offer my run so you can see a somewhat simplistic attempt. If you can't run this way, you may want to look for differences in our systems. It may be necessary to run your 8320 at a higher voltage, not sure.

thanks again
i tried a bunch of combinations, even tried above 1.5v and it looks like a no go. bluescreens usually say "WHEA uncorrectable error" and hyperpi will give me "not exact in round" , dont know what those mean other than unstable. maybe someone has experience with it. im about to try disabling the 7/8 module since i read that is usually the weakest
also can you disable individual cores with the latest bios? the only thing i saw was for whole modules meaning two cores at a time

CnQ isn't working which is weird. it was a week ago

If weirdness is setting in, you could try clearing the CMOS or even reflashing the BIOS.

When people talk about weak cores, it's because they've observed it empirically using something like Prime95 and you can see which cores drop out first.

Okay, fair enough. The way the HAF 932 is setup, it doesn't look there's any good direct circulation in that area once the CPU air-cooler is replaced. In fact, at idle, the NB was 61C. Now I don't know if this out of the ordinary since I haven't seen anyone else post this sort of data. With the case open as I'm running it now, the idle temp will be 63C, so the case does provide some minimal benefit. But when I blow air directly on the heatsink, big things happen. That's why I'm looking for good solutions others have implemented.
Thanks for your feedback.

With the setup shown below, I can get 51C at idle. Without too much effort you can see the NB heatsink right behind the big fan.



I'm also in the process of ordering another set of SP fans for the H100i.

Sorry I don't have a lot of time to go into details right now but I just wanted to let you know of my experience real quick. I fold and boinc during special events. Not 24/7. After I got both my CHV board and fx-8120 I started and barely finished a fold-a-thon. I was overclocked to 4.3 GHz and after about 20 minutes of folding the pc would shutdown spontaneously as far as I knew. Not only would the pc shutdown I couldn't turn the pc on without a special combination of resetting the bios and messing around with the power, reset button, and power cord. Obviously frustrated I finally figured that it had to do with the psu and the motherboard. I finally plugged the second four pin into the board and my pc never shutdown like that since. I am successfully folding and crunching with nearly no issues. I made the following thread about it here if you want more specific info:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1308408/no-heat-lower-voltage-stable-folder-spontaneous-shutdowns-over-taxed-psu

I follow this thread closely in case you have any further questions about it.

PS: The OCN folding team is always looking for more contributers. If any one is interested see the Fold-a-thon thread in my sig and tell them I sent you.

This issue has to be far the most disappointing I've seen with this board. I have a hard time believing that Asus didn't provide a solution for this out of the factory, but there you have it.

Hi bud I believe it's only a 20/30mm fan with a 30mm thickness and it's max speed is 4500 rpm, if I turn my comp on and turn the fan on max my NB will stay the same temp + 2/3 degrees under prime stress but I only run it at 2000.
When I get 10 mins I will turn it off n do a run and then turn it on and do one to compare temps.


No fan I used get bout 50+ with the fan on full it's low 40s

Have mine set to 241x20=4836. Also have disabled cores 5-8 and running as an expensive quad core.
Have been reading some articles about fx 8150 about disabling cores and benefits to threading.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2645594.
also this sight helped me a lot. Much knowledge. http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?2585-ASUS-Crosshair-V-Formula-BIOS-Guide-Overclocking&highlight=raja
