    Hi Guys

    Thinking of buying this Board for new system build. Would appreciate it if someone would comment or give their impressions on the chipset cooler using only the heat pipe, water block or both. Thanks

    Just out of interest what temps do you get with your NH-U12P?

    I see you are at stock, when i got my PC, i couldnt even run linpak on the stock cooler without it going past 80 degs, at stock clocks.

    Ok. I went and read through all the posts here on this thread hoping maybe someone discussed the new marvel 6gb raid controller on this new "A" Advance board....but noooooooooooo.

    Currently I have yet to find a review on your intel controller vs the marvel one to see if it's worth getting the "A" board for just that?

    Even though I'm not intel, they make an "A" version of my board as well, and the SB750 raid controller is slow, just wondering how the marvel controller compares to your already fast intel controller would be a nice review.

    Thanks

    Thanks Baldman

    All that knowledge you have, must of fried your hair off.

    Now I know not to waste my money on that and maybe just get a good (real) RAID Controller card.

    Thanks again,

    According to tony on the OCZ ssd forums we can run 3x SSDs on IC10H before needing a raid card. (which in all seriousness is way more than the average PC enthusiast needs)

    So anyone got some temps for me?

    I would like to compare, as i think there is something up with my mount of my heatsink.

    It seems to droop a little, making me think thats why core 1 and 2 are much hotter than 3 and 4.

    Core are not going to be the same most of the time, as they are always working on different things, and your heatsink and IHS are often convex so things do not line up perfectly.

    How large are your core differences at idle? If more than 10C then you may need to reseat your CPU a few times, or think about Lapping one or both

    Yeah, i get how the cores can be different. so far i have seen a 9 deg differential between 1 and 4 at load. ie 79 on core 1 and 70 on core 4, just seems excessive. So I will deffinately re-seat the Cooler tonight.

    And i think it is the IHS of my CPU that is the issue it didnt look all that flat when i placed the cooler the first time, but i cannot lap it for the warranty side of things.

    Luckily enough i build PC's for people quite often so when the next one gets done ill just swap CPU's.

    yes, it's better. I am able to boot into Windows with a BCLK frequency of 218MHz.
    I tryed 220 but still no go. Diagnostic code = C1.
    there is a new option called "Dynamic Vcore (DVID)".
