    ASUS A8N-VM CSM runs hot?

    I would like to hear what kind of temps other owners of this board are getting too. The temps I'm showing make me nervous.

    ASUS A8N-VM CSM runs hot?

    Well the problem isnt as much as the difference in the readings, its in the fact that if the Asus board readings are correct, that means I have a problem. Having a full load go up to 55 degrees is not something I wanna do. I dont wanna bring in instability due to overheating. Hell even idling at...

    ASUS A8N-VM CSM runs hot?

    Hey all. I recently replaced my Gigabyte motherboard due to all the problems it has with the Asus A8N-VM CSM. For whatever reason my cpu now runs almost 10 degrees hotter than it did when I ran it on my gigabyte. It idles now at around 44 degrees and goes up to 55 degrees on full load...

    I received my replacement Asus 6150 motherboard. Popped in all the parts and it works like a charm! The same parts that were causing me nothing but problems with the gigabyte.

    GA-K8N51PVMT-9 - help, no post & no beeps

    Could it be an issue just with the dual cores? I havent really been keeping a tally but I seem to notice the problems happen with people that are running a dual core.

    GA-K8N51PVMT-9 - help, no post & no beeps

    I'm hoping if enough people send their complaints directly to Gigabyte they might actually look into this problem. Hopefully whatever it is could be fixed in a BIOS update unless its some mass manufacturing problem in which case we're all SOL.

    Which is better BIOSTAR TForce6100-939 or GIGABYTE GA-K8N51PVMT-9

    I had the same problem with the PVMT-9. I ended up RMA'ing half my parts until I realized it was the motherboard. I just ordered the Asus 6150 motherboard. I went as so far as calling Gigabyte regarding this problem along with the MACHINE_CHECK_ERROR. They refused to acknowledge it at all even...

    The dreaded MACHINE_CHECK_ERROR

    I was looking to get the ASUS. But after waiting months and one delay after another I went with the Gigabyte since it at least had the 430 chipset. Even now the Asus 6150 board isnt that easy to get. From the intial reviews the only complaint with the board was its lack of overclocking features...

    Where to place Qpack CPU heat sensor?

    To get the most accurate temperature reading? The hard drive is easy, but i have no idea where to place the cpu heat sensor. I have a Zalman 7000 which makes it even more difficult to find a spot.

    Problems with Qpack & GA-K8N51GMF-9 Rig

    Wow you're right. I put back the stock Qpack PSU and everything works fine. Never would have though this ANTEC NeoHE would be the problem. Gonna go RMA it with newegg. You have any suggestions of which PSU to go with instead that would fit well in the Qpack?

    evga 7800GT CO problems

    I got the N517 card a couple of days ago. I have the latest BIOS on it but it gives horrible artifacts in windows sometimes when I bootup that require me to reboot until it fixes the problem. Games lock up most of the time. I underclocked the core down to 445 from its "stock" 470 which...

    eVGA N517 7800GT need to underclock?

    Hello, I have read others that have this issue but I am ready to RMA it back to newegg. The video card gives out horrible artifacts in windows and locks up games unless I underclock it from its "stock" speed of 470mhz down to at least 450mhz or lower. Even then it locks up once in a while...

    GIGABYTE GA-K8N51GMF-9 How is it?

    I just got it. I only had a moment to try to install it but it seems the only way for it to fit "right" was to install it upsidedown with the cable on the left side with the antec logo on top. Is that how you did it? I havent began to put in the motherboard and the rest yet but I think thats how...

    GIGABYTE GA-K8N51GMF-9 How is it?

    Ack! I just ordered the same Antec NeoHE 550 PSU from NewEgg as you for my Qpack. I take it other then the obvious problem of being DOA, the NeoHE 550 has no problem fitting into the Qpack?
