    You can blame me... I get defensive a little too easily.

    Ok! This goes along with overclocking because I want to know how to turn the thermal throttling off... these blasted i7 will turn down the BCLK or multiplier in order to lower temps for itself. Maybe it's to improve stability... I don't care!

    Anyway here's a fun little experiment I did... literally the temps fell within 5 seconds from one screen to the next. Nothing gets this cpu as hot as coredamage... NOTHING

    I have a LN2/Dice pot but i haven't used it for almost 2 years. I would need new bracket as it doesn't have a 1366 bracket support. Maybe i could get a friend to make 1 for me. Last time i used it was when the first x6800 cpu was out in 06

    if my mobo was a car i would have driven it off a cliff by now.

    this thing is such a piece of shit. i have never had so many problems with a mobo.

    or maybe its the cpu. idk. i cant tell. they hate eachother i know that much.

    i can get something to run perfect for a few hours. reboot. it wont F***ing post at all. same settings. why so many inconsistancies on this POS setup? i have tried different ram, different cooling , different video cards. nothing helps. im thinking its the cpu and mobo.

    idk where to go from here. my money is at $0.00 and its not going up any time soon. i guess im just sitting on this POS setup until i figure out wtf to do.

    :mad::banghead::mad::banghead::mad::banghead:

    what REALLY gets me mad is the FACT that me and binge have the exact same setup and he can run 4.5ghz easily. i try the EXACT same settings and it wont even post. WTF kinda shit is that? total shit if you ask me.

    MONSTER crap, dude :(

    Why don't you send Binge your CPU for him to test (if he doesn't live too far away)?

    If it's your CPU, he won't be able to do it either but, if it's not, time to RMA the board.

    Just a thought.

    I won't mind taking a crack at it. I've got to change up my WC setup anyway and this will give me motivation to put on better tubing.

    Man, I just ran into an "extra" bit of cash. I'm torn on waiting for Phenom II or going for this...

    I'm on the fence, especially with fits issues, and how hot these things get.

    If you do, I will be asking you about that board, thinking of switching to it. Heat is a big issue, so how far you want to go on the stock cooler would be up to you. I may have gone too far on mine.

    LOL. I'm leaning in that direction. :). Though I wish PII DDR3 boards were coming out in Jan.

    DDR3 makes very little difference look at the tests. DDR2 has plenty of bandwidth.

    :rolleyes: Unless the DDR3 is clocked much higher than the DDR2.

    Which is the case more than not. I see way more DDR3 1333 and 1600 kits available now than DDR3 1066 sticks. It will also be the new standard soon.
