    The 4 black sata ports are Intel sata 2, and the 2 red ones right next to them are the Intel sata 3 ports. The remaining 2 (red) ports are the ASMedia sata 3 ports.

    So is there any danger of damaging the CPU by getting metal filings in the hole? Any suggestions on how to prevent this?

    Far be it for me to disagree with Arne, but it's more likely that a poor connection between the plug and the socket has caused this. Poor connections get hot, which makes them more resistive, which...

    Lapping a 3930K - What's the hole for?

    I was thinking about lapping my 3930K next time I pull down and rebuild my system. But it's got a little hole in it, and I'm concerned about particles of metal getting into the hole. So I have a few...

    I'm not sure. I don't have the memory leak any more, but I also don't have AI Suite II installed either, so it's possible the memory leak is fixed, but it's also possible it was being caused by AI...

    In you OP, when you said "if you place a vga in #2 system become instable", was that a typo? Did you mean slot #3?

    Check to make sure the PCIe Lane switch for slot 3 isn't turned off.

    Also, visually inspect the socket for slot 3, make sure there's no crap on the connectors.

    Good work. That's a pretty quick 3930K you have there.

    You should have some sort of active cooling on your VRM. It'll get very hot if you hammer your CPU at that speed.

    The EZ_Plug 2 is a small 4pin plug that you can plug a floppy drive power connector onto. Have a look in your manual, it will tell you exactly where it is. You probably don't need it, but plugging it...

    That makes a lot more sense. But your temps are still a little high, probably because your vcore is also quite high (for stock). My system will run at 4.2GHz with a vcore offset of -0.100 and do...

    Looks like your OS was corrupt. Could have been coincidence, but it's also possible that there was an initial issue with your CPU block being over tight that has caused this. I guess we'll never know...

    The problem with photos is, they're 2D, and you can only see them from one angle. If you use a magnifying glass, you can have a good close look without having to guess at what you're seeing.

    Can't see anything wrong with the pins, but pin issues are hard to spot, and this has all the hallmarks of a bent pin issue. I'd put the board under a very good light, then use a magnifying glass to...

    The G.skill memory fits nicely under the cooler, but the front fan is mounted a little higher than it should be to accommodate it. The fans on the Phantek PH-TC14PE are 140mm fans, so be carefull...

    The point we're making is, aside for the mixing of RAM kits issue, is that X79 is quad channel. If you populate 4 slots with 2GB of RAM, you'll get much better performance than populating 1 slot with...

    Hey Arne, I read recently that you could do this much faster if you put the CMOS battery in upside down for 30 Secs. I'm guessing the upside down battery shorts out any residual charge, so you don't...

    You do on the X79 platform, trust every expert here on this. They'll all tell you the same thing. Don't mix ram kits on the X79 platform. Just because a 8GB x 2 kit work in dual channel, doesn't mean...

    No, it doesn't work like that. You shouldn't mix kits. You should never mix kits like that. If you want to put 64GB in, then you'll need to put a 64GB kit in, or you may have memory issues. If you...

    Sounds like bent pins to me.

    Of course, it's also possible the issue you're having has nothing to do with changing the cooler, and it's only a coincidence that it happened when you changed the...

    There's a big difference between 1.15V and 1.25V. Is there anywhere in between where it will still run?

    I agree with Arne here. The PSU is the one area where you should always get more than you think you need. It's a good investment.
