    Mine makes a ringing noise when it idles in low power state and DES makes it worse. I just got it back yesterday and they did nothing, so a waste of a month and $10 for shipping. They sent the same board back, I called them and they said that they couldn't hear it.


    I notice that with the new DES its not as noticable.

    Anyway I have no issues with LLC enabled while using C1E and EIST as well as C2/4E.

    Currently since i got it back I have been running 400x9 @1.25v w/ LLC disabled. This is to get all my stuff installed

    How do you like your Asus Top 4850?? I just got one and like it, except its a little hot even with 100% fan speed which is very quiet BTW so I leave it on 100% at all times. I Used Ati Tool Tray to down clock it at idle which by my Kill A Watt meter saves me 15w. I plan to get an Accelero heatsink for it here soon

    That sucks, sorry to hear that. :(


    I don't have C2/4E enabled, but I do have C1E and EIST enabled presently. Since disabling LLC (and boosting my vcore to compensate, readings in cpu-z are at about 1.28v now, which is where it was when stable-ish using LLC (but I had to boost it to 1.319 in the BIOS.)) I haven't had any BSODs thus far, hoping that really was my problem.

    I love my 4850 TOP so far. It does run a bit hot, but not too bad considering. If I remember correctly, 48xx boards in general run relatively hot. I run my fan at 100% all the time too, and have a 120mm side mounted case fun blowing air on it as well at 100% (79cfm.) I haven't seen the cores run at over 57 degrees C yet, and about 63 degrees max so far for the memory modules. I'm tempted to get another one, but we'll see. It's been pretty good so far, though I've only really tested it with Warhammer Online (running everything at max, 1920x1200... a hell of a lot different than my old rig that had to run everything at minimum and still stuttered lol.)

    Mine runs hotter, 64.5C max core and 74C mem, I have a 120mfan above it(may case has the videocard on top/cpu bottom), currently the fan is blowing up at my HDD's but I will change it to blow on the card to see how the temps change. I just wanted to blow the hot air up and past my HDD's to exit my PSU, but I know fans are better cooling when pushing instead of pulling. Oh BTW this is with the card underclocked to 660/1050 and using 1 step lower than stock voltage(1.082v)

    Huh, that's surprising. I just ran CCC's Auto-Tune, and apparently it's saying I can run mine at 790/1070. I think I'll keep it at 750/1060, I think that's a pretty decent OC. Yeah, having fresh, cool air blown directly on the card really seems to help this particular one (especially with no ramsinks on it.)

    BTW, my rig seems to be rock-solid now with LLC disabled, seems that was indeed the cause of my woes. It's higher in BIOS obviously but my vcore shown in cpu-z is 1.28.
