This is on a simple "oc genie" overclock mind-you as I have been babying it since you warned me about the msi problems with 900 series mobos. After some investigation I found a black/brown burn spot about the size of a quarter inbetween the cpu fan header and the num 1 memory slot. Trial and error got it running again but not until I found out the cpu fan header no longer works and the first memory slot no longer functions either. She's running okay with my 920's 3-pin power header plugged into a secondary fan header and my memory in the other three slots (2 gig, 4 gig, 2 gig = 8 gig 1866) She still runs in dual channel and is okay but I'm waiting on my new mobo to put in it so I don't have to go without a computer while MSI sorts it out. I decided on the Gigabyte 990fx ud3 especially since the egg is giving away 2 4 gig sticks of geil memory with certain mobos...whew! Thanks again for the warnings as I don't know how bad it would've been if I was still running at 4.2 ghz!!! +REP for you if I could...

MSI is going to fix or hopefully replace it so I can get the v.2 version of the board.)might be 2.0 not sure) Just wanted to ask your opinion (if any_ on the build quality of this mobo or Asus in general. I haven't used them before in my machines(only fatality or gd80) Thanks again for the heads up on msi mobo's and the advice.Here's the replacement board:


To be honest,the problem you described could just as easily be from a short,(which you may have caused while cleaning)and I don't think you can conclude a bad design from that.If you you were happy with it before then I would get the replacement and try it out for awhile.thumb.gif

As for the Asus board,that's basically the same VRM's as the M5A97,with no heatsinks. Won't fry, but you will have some vdroop and hindered overclock ability.

Well, the thing is: when i was swapping out the board, I took out the top bezel on the new z11 case and BAM! There was a piece of bare wire grounding out straight to the top honeycomb of the case.It appears that it pulled out of the fan and feww right to the honeycombed top steel panel. I wasn't sure how the fans bn plugged in backwards or sum'n could cause that popping b/c it happened as soon as I pushed the power button after swapping out cases to the z11 plus. I took a pic. and called newegg and then zalman... and now i have a 10 buck "prepaid card" coming...wow. I guess it's just one of those things but you're correct. I do love that MSI gd-80 moibo and will be putting the new one in directly MSI said on the phone that burned connections that damage multiple components are usually replaced and the v.1 are gone so I'll get a v.2 WooHoo!! I do think it's a testament to the build quality that it still ran fine after swapping out the ram to slot 2 and cpu fan to a different header, though. Thanks

P.S. The Asus board runs great btw and I do like their utilities like the probe and turbo unlocker, AI suite. good stuff.

So according to the Asus website, the latest BIOS for my motherboard adds support for Piledriver FX CPU's

http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A78LMUSB3/#CPUS

Would my board be able to cope with an FX 8320 or 8350?

It's been running a Phenom II x4 955 @3.8GHz at about 1.45v for months now, with Enzotech heat sinks on the VRM's.
Thanks in advance.


Also, I know it's not relevant to the thread, but would I be better off jumping to intel, rather than dropping in a Piledriver CPU if my board can handle it?


Cheers.

I don't get it. Why does it say Asus motherboard phase list submission form as the title of the mobo submission form?

post #1076 of 1597

Not sure. Changed.

You're going to want to get that 8120 off of the unheatsinked VRM board....

WOW! Where'd ya find one... I've only been able to find the a75 pure platinum and integrated apu pure white ones. Sapphire mobo's are hard to find.

well at the least you could run a an 80mm fan over it running full blast to help cool the vrms.

Shoot, once, I even stripped the bridges' sinks off an old motherboard with integrated gfx, cleaned off the thermal paste, and thermal taped them on the vrm's for cooling lol. It was about a 6 year old factory built computer with those small aluminum sinks on the n.b. and s.b. It actually worked well enough to get by until the enzotech copper sinks arrived!
