    For exact 1150 you will have to run your cpu with these settings >>>
    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [7]
    Fine Clock Ratio _____________[0.5]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [359]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [3.20] = 1148.8 Use a divider with D if you see it

    Thank you very much!

    Just one last question...

    On the following settings you gave me, LOWER is FASTER-BETTER and higher is SLOWER-MORE STABLE? Am I correct?

    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 12/15

    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 3-4
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 9-11
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 4-6
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 35-55 (Start around 48-50 if you are not sure then lower if you can later)

    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 3-6
    Static tRead Value_______________ 6 (7-10)

    So for more speed I prefer lower values and for more stability higher???

    Yeap, exactly. And lower/lowest may can memory failures so always test with Memtest86+ as you are lowering things

    Adjust trd (Static tRead First) then the rest and if you are using 1150 Ram Freq 6 will not work at all, and 7 may even fail

    With stock settings I do not have reboots any more!!! :)

    Thanx lsdmeasap!

    I will now try the overclocked settings! ;)

    Ok, used the arctic freezer 7 pro. Simple enough with the board out.

    realtemp
    32,34,26,29 (tjmax 100)

    coretemp
    37,32,34,39 (tjmax 95)

    Still have the wild spread but at the point where I couldn't care less anymore and it's about 10c lower than it was. Good cooler for

    half the price of the others and, as they say, temps should fall as it burns in.

    Thoughts so far?

    Why not use the zalman or the thermalright?
    The arctic freezer was the easiest install and it's light as a feather. No worry about the weight hanging on the mobo so no back

    plate required.

    I knew going in I'd have to remove the crazy cool for the zalman or the thermalright. No big deal. Until you get to the point that you

    need the special screws that came with the board to re stabilize the silent pipe on the front. Had the board for more than two

    months. Any extra screws get thrown in a box with 9 zillion others. Sure, I'll find them in five minutes. (/sarcasm) Of course, they

    say screws but show a pic of bolts. (gotta love translators) And you can't really use anything because they're right over traces so

    should be insulated. And yeah, I could have cut them off the crazy cool, but if there's a problem with the board, how do you RMA

    it?

    Anyway, my last 4 or 5 boards were gigabytes. The engineering on this one, to me, is just really sad. Besides the ram fiasco it's

    just badly designed, IMO. If it was meant to be OC'd, why on earth would anyone throw a cooler (aptly named crazy) under the

    CPU that had to be removed to work with a hi end HS? IMHO, just no thought at all went into this. Sure the extra cooler may have

    been a neat concept, but to remove it, you need the "special" screws for an aftermarket HS that virtually everyone would just throw

    in a bucket or even throw out when they're done mounting the oem to get it up to speed. I don't even remember seeing them, but

    that's another story.

    Yes, intel has a major part in this mess with their idiotic mount system but a board manufacturer should have seen this coming.

    There's a ton of ways they could have got around it but just didn't. And yes it's a pretty simple install "if" you have the board out,

    but I don't ever remember mounting a HS with the board out. This one is just too tight to work with when everything else is already

    installed.

    But, that's my opinion and I'm stuck with it.

    And since on the subject of HS's. Arctic just came out with a new one. And they figured out how to mount on a 775 without pulling

    the board. Like I said before... just pop locks from the front. Not rocket science.
    Arctic Cooling Freezer XTREME CPU Cooler :: TweakTown

    These things remind me of the old ninja's. Great coolers, lightweight (so no need for a back plate), wallet friendly.

    Ok, rant over. :)

    Ya, I think they could have designed the Crazy backplate better for sure, they know everyone uses aftermarket coolers, and alot use Water with backplates.

    You see the new Ultra Durable 3 designs? 2oz Copper inside the PCB >>>

    Can't wait to try those out myself. I don't like the Silver heatinks, I think black and blue would have been better for sure

    Now that's cool. :) But it looks like they're staying with the idiotic HS mounts. Hopefully they'll ship some decent mounts with the board that will work.

    I have just bought and assembled a pile of parts:
    Coolermaster cm690 case
    Antec truepower 2.0 550W and Thermaltake vga power supply 450w to get 8 pin plug for 280
    ga-x48-dq6 mobo
    intel e8500
    corsair dominator 8500c5d twinX 4 x 1 gig, matched pairs
    seagate 320gig sata (two)
    msi n280gtx t2d1g super oc
    lg 22x dvd and w2242t-bf 22inch monitor
    razer lachesis mouse
    vista home premium 64

    on initial build would not get past splash screen - no beeps
    no mouse or keyboard response - removed razer and plugged in old ps2 ball mouse, then got constant reboot loop without reaching bios.
    Finally with one lonely stick of ram it works. will not work with ram in any but slot one, the one nearest cpu, any extra, or one stick anywhere else gets the stop start loop. tried revised timings specified earlier, no improvement.
    Is there any particular Mushkin, cause I'm guessing that's what you'd recommend, that would be the most appropriate to replace the Corsair.
    Moderately depressed after the high of the buy.

    nearest lo-price retailer has MUSHKIN Twin Pack 2x1 gig (2gig Total) DDR2 1066Mhz (PC2-8500) Value Enhanced?
