    Let me update this thread.
    Got a new computer case, so finally took out the MB, cleaned it, reseated CPU, put the MB into new case and the M.2 option works!
    Well, at least the MB boots with the...

    "bottom 4x slot" is where the sound card is plugged-in. I will try to take the computer apart tomorrow and hopefully the BIOS setting will finally work.

    I'm aware of the limitations. I know the M.2 drive will not run at max speed, but I was hoping that it will run.

    Once I have more spare time, I plan to troubleshoot this by taking the PC apart. ...

    Do you have Asus AI Suit running?
    Try closing it - choose close on the taskbar icon.

    Sometimes when playing movies I get audio problems (audio drops out for a short while (say 1 sec)). Don't...

    Ok, I'm finally happy with my temps and my decibels.

    I've ended up using SilverStone FM121 as the pull fan, currently running at 1700-1800RPM. The push fan is stock H80 connected to the water...

    I was looking at the cooler and did see heat dissipation of 200W for non-PRO and 300W for PRO, which would make this cooler sufficient for your processor. I say that, because when testing my cooler...

    xeromist
    I concur. "low idle temps...very high load temps" is exactly what I had with my heatsink which ended up being not enough for the newer processors.

    Another good test for the heatsink is...

    I do understand :)

    The only way to know if it's the paste is to remove the heatsink and see how your original paste application spread out on the CPU and that will tell you if the high...

    I've tried 9-blade fans. PULL: Scythe SY1225SL12M (1300RPM), PUSH: SilverStone FM121 (max rotation, 2400RPM)

    With this configuration putting on a fan grill on the PUSH fan did not create a...

    Have you always been applying this much thermal paste?

    Arctic Silver 5 website says to apply "5 cubic millimeters (or 1 uncooked grain of white rice)". If you were following those instructions to...

    I figured out why the fans where whining.

    Summary of today's H80 acoustics testing using stock fans at various speeds in a push-pull configuration with airflow out of the case.

    Corsair H80 installed.

    Temperatures are much better. With lowered vCore and 30 min testing:
    ambient 24C
    inside case (top) 28-29C (there is some air blowing on the sensor)
    mb 28-29C
    socket...

    Thanks Sir Slappy.

    I've went ahead and purchased Corsair H80 as the only solution that will allow me to keep my side fans.

    Will report back here with temp results.
  15. Sir Slappy, those are very nice temps and...

    Sir Slappy, those are very nice temps and certainly ones I would like to see with my PC. Can you tell me your ambient temp and for how long you were loading the CPU before taking measurements? Fan...

    After lapping the heatsink, many re-seatings and today's testing the conclusion is that the Thermalright SI-128 SE is a '90s heatsink for a '00s CPU. It seems like it was design with 90W CPUs in...

    Wow this MB is weird.

    So I go into BIOS and set vCore at 1.35.

    So far HWMonitor64 shows vCore high at 1.33 and currently at 1.28. Running my usual test. Temps after 30min are [socket/core in...

    Should vCore be dropping as the CPU temperature rises?

    I always thought that vCore increases to stabilize the CPU when it gets hotter, but it seems to be the opposite on this MB.

    Unfortunately, still can't hold 54/53 and again, once this breaks down it's just time till it all explodes. Got to 66/71 in 22min. HS probe this time was 51C, so much higher than the ~45C before...

    Detection:
    Yes, voltage is on auto for now. I just wanted to get a quick 3,6Ghz before I really get into OCing this thing.

    It was too easy to rotate my heatsink while attached. After removing it and closely inspecting it I found out it had a BIG ASS bump going right through the middle! Nice quality control! I've been...

    Tried 3,4Ghz, seems to stay at 44C core.

    Back to 3,6Ghz, voltages:
    CPU voltage decreases from 1.4xx to mostly 1.356 and then 1.344 when cores are at 68C and higher.
    CPU/NB fluctuates back and...

    But according to my monitoring software the voltage (vCore) actually drops as the test progresses. I am thinking of...

    What do you think about those runaway temps?

    That is the biggest concern for me. It seems to hold the temps and then once 55/52 is breached it goes up forever. This seems very unusual.

  25. Crosshair V / Phenom II 1100T - temps getting out of control

    Hi,

    Just got myself a Crosshair V, Phenom II 1100T cooled by Thermalright SI-128 SE with fan @ 2400 rpm. Goal is to reach 4Ghz, but for starters I've set 3,6Ghz, just to have it higher than my...
