Yes, that last one looks particular nice. It looks like you went through a progression during your build. In particular, moving from an H100 to a custom loop.

Thanks for updating your sig. And welcome!
post #4755 of 9900
Yeah, first photo is her brand new, second is her all installed with the h100, then fitting up the blocks and finally the finished build!

Please need dvd asus crosshair formula Z, an image to reactivate my motherboard to collapse. thanks
post #4757 of 9900
hi guys.recently upgraded my motherboard to the crosshair v formula.planning to overclock my 1090t to at least 4.0ghz... my current bios is 1003.should i update it to the latest?will updating the bios affect overclocking stability?? will not overclock now though as im currently using stock cooler. planning on getting the new h60 or the h100i. will the h60 be enough to cool the overclocking at4ghz? thanks guys biggrin.gif
Edit: oh yeah and my rams detect as single channel? i know i slot them in dual channel.is it bios problem?

Are the Phenom's a bit trickier to OC than Bulldozers then?

One version of that memory has these specs, which is the same as what you posted except for the voltage.
8GB DDR3 PC3-17000 Dual channel kit 2x4GB
2133MHz CL9 (9-11-10-28)
For Intel Z68/P67 platforms
240 pins
1.65V
I'm wondering if the G.Skills need the 1.65V to sustain load at the lower CL. Maybe this is true in general for DDR3. Even for my Snipers, they do run well enough at 9-9-9-24 at 1.6V for FC3, but they're not IBT stable at this voltage. Keep in mind that my system is running at 4.8GHz.
I'm still a bit vague on how XMP works on an AMD platform. When I applied XMP on the R3E for Corsair Dominator 2000MHz triple channel DRAM, all kinds of settings were changed and the stock air-cooler on the i7-920 could not keep up. The memory voltage was raised to 1.65V but I believe the entire NB interface along with the IMC was jacked up significantly. An H100i is on the way to correct the cooling problem for this one. Oh, and these particular DIMMs came requisite with their own air-cooler, and they really need it based on temp measurements.
So, while we're on this point about faster memory, what is the best memory for our C5F. Obviously I'm soliciting opinions, but hopefully they are rooted in fact and ideally with direct experience.

well i can get 2400 at 11-12-11-34 at 1.7 but i dont see any reason for higher then 2133 if it has such a high CL and also the 2133MHz CL9 (9-11-10-28) is running at 1T so should be faster anyways but I have the noctua nh-d14 for the cpu so it probably helps cool the ram a bit in my case i will be uploading cpu-z shots later on once everything is running
