I don't think I agree with asus motherboards being flakey dude , mine is a few years old and has had a hard life but is 100% working.
I do agree their support sucks though.

I did the same with my 8350 till I killed it. Ha ha
One and only has some good points. They are solidboards through and through and most of the RMA issues I have seen have been with INTEL stuff with claims of bent pins which I have seen before pics and they weren't bent. Yes ASUS is dropping the ball or they have some poor tech staff possibly. Don't know through my 10 years all has been positive.
One thing I do know is that the lower end boards typically won't perform when you really want to push a CPU. Sometimes bios options are just missing or the VRM can't quite handle it but thee's a reason they are cheaper.

here the issues are more severe they die withtin 6months and have a pretty much 50% mortality rate. a friend of mines sabertooth 990fx died 75days after purchase.
and my previous board used to take a trip to the rma center very 6 months. no reason. just stopped working. and whenever i went there i would see a large rack about 10ft long filled with sabertooth motherboards only.
something that is supposed to be "durable"


Well that was it for me . after 2 years i just got this new setup.

Can you put the machine in S3 state, leave it for sometime and wake it up, run some games, general browsing etc. May be do this for few times, if its still stable at 4.5 then its really really stable!! I have seen OCs run for ever if you just restart and leave that thing alone, but when you use sleep the mobo messes the voltage applied until the OS calms down!! that's when it crashes.

Sounds like you had some bad luck. In 10 years I've had 1 RMA and it went quite smooth. I have 6 Asus boards at home one is 8 or 9 years old even after a major water leak once it keeps on ticking. Also have 5 Asus DCII GFX cards not one issue with those either. Like I said earlier to each their own.

You tend to need much more than a 212 to get a fx to stay at 5ghz dude, most aios are not going to cut it too unless you flat out the fan speeds.
I've plenty of rad on mine and it uses it for 5ghz @ 1.568 core v stable less core volts = not stable. .... obv my fx is a pig but still.

No need for the hostility, it's a simple misunderstanding:

I noticed it too, but figured you meant Cinebench since you mentioned score being lower.

Well I've got a fair bit more than that out of it by accident once , I accidentally booted at 1.7.
Well to be fair it applied a crazy offset to 1.5 which should not have happened but a bios reflash stopped that happening , and I have a ek block on my crosshair v which helps.

I got a good deal on a Kingston HyperX Beast 2400Mhz 8GB kit so I will use those instead. Should get them by wednesday.

I have a Gigabyte 880GMA-USB3 collecting dust, I think I'll get a 6300/6350 and use the OCZ RAM there. :toast:

Only if you had -10*c ambients and some huge rpm fans would it be able to cpuz validate 5ghz. No way it could prime with that!
Stacked fans?

well i only needed 1.45V and had a pedestal fan blowing at it full throttle and it was raining so cool. it cant run prime .but it does validate lol.

seriously impressed by this motherboard. i had a friend who benched a 8350 on a 990 evo but couldnt get more than 4.8 to post.

That's because a validation link looks like this http://valid.canardpc.com/2hwhtk not a facebook reference. That's fine I saw your post on the previous page, not doubt you managed to get to 5.0.

That's a myth, stacked fans does nothing. The only way it has any benefit is if the second fan turns the opposite direction and then it's minimal.

i thought i had the 5ghz validation in my signature. i guess i reached the max no of urls.
here it is

you seem to have something with believing what i say. But then you're new here.

and yes its stable enough to do that on air as i have done so.

just had a panaflow 100+ cfm fan directed with a pedestal fan.



and yes stacked fans dont work because they only increase the static pressure but not the actual flow rate.
but having fans in the same direction of airflow on either side of a heatsink or any obstructive path helps because that creates a uniform pressure head which helps with the airflow and even reduces turbulence.

the latter happens because because of the negative head the air going in, air will follow the shortest path of least resistance possible to the negative head. and since a streamline is the shortest least resistant way, no turbulence.

@de.das.dude It's not believing what you say and I do understand english quite well. This all started with a claim that the Asrock extreme 4 is the best. I just don't feel that way and thought that was quite a statement to make. My opinion is, it's probably a great budget board that'll handle the power of an 8 core FX CPU.
I might be new here but this isn't my first trip around the block, I have spent a lot of time with AMD and FX CPUs. I do know that when the chips are down you need a good solid base to keep things from blowing up in our face. Here's a sample of what I was up to on the weekend. Done on an ASUS Crosshair III.
