i appreciate it, but no thanks as i said i got a replacement for free. as i buy a 3rd party warranty that covers these issues. i would recommend you reconsider. the CVFz is a great board.
as far as my issues OCing was a pain. you have to enable HPC or oc wont stick. you have to disable then reenable another setting that i cant remember ( just got off a 17 hour shift ) to get CFX to work ( disable to work then oc ht and reenable for that to work ) from what i can tell cpu/nb has no llc. not alot of voltage control. HWinfo will tell you your CPUnb vid ) you dont see many volts, very few sensors both temp and volts it ocs very very well i will give it that. my temps though are high i may be able to manage 4.8 but keeping it at 4.7 ( due to CPU/nb oc/volts+ht volts ( ht adds alot of heat ) ) had no problem booting at 5 probably could do 5.1~5.3 np with my current cooling
2.7-1 notch on pll gave me a HUGE temp drop ( ~ 10c ) though that was nice
Mega Man, my full 16 Gb is being recognized in bios today on 4 different boots. That could change with my next boot though. I ran my bootable memtest 86 on cd. I see it is a linux bootable, in any case, I did 3 full passes some 3 hours of testing with no errors recorded. I suspect perhaps one of the dimm slots is quirky. I used my compressed air cleaner to blow out any crap in the memory slots and it hopefully will continue to recognize both memory sticks. My water block is now seated without any impinging vrms or elbow joints. Thanks to Brian and my trusty hacksaw. Yet I can't run stress on 4.4 GHZ or above without the system shutting down immediately. I can only boot as high as 4.7 GHZ without regard to stability. The tim seems to be distributed properly on the cpu . Any ideas on what may be the issue here???? The shutdown is so fast I can't even read any spiking in temps.Edited by os2wiz - 9/24/13 at 3:34pm
