    CPU waterblock question

    So I am currently running a D-tek fusion V2 waterblock on my FX-8120. Are there any substantial upgrades as far as waterblocks go currently? As it stands I'm running a triple 120, dual pass radiator and the only thing in the loop is the processor. I'm seeing idle temperatures in the mid to...

    500 Million ASUS Motherboards. The Celebration Starts at [H]. - Lucky Draw

    I purchased an Asus board to replace an MSI board that died on me. The Asus board worked great for everything except overclocking. If I adjusted the voltage at all, the board wouldn't post, even at stock frequencies. The rma process took about a month and Asus replaced it with a functional board.

    Safe voltages for overclocking FX-8350?

    I'm running a custom water loop and mine died horribly under 1.6 volts. As I said in my previous post, temps are not what killed it. It never went above 55C.

    Safe voltages for overclocking FX-8350?

    I would highly recommend not going above 1.55volts as well. I have an MSI board that would have serious voltage swings that put my 8120 over 1.57 volts fairly frequently. That processor is quite dead now. Heat wasn't the issue. The voltage fried it. Be careful.

    990FXA-GD65 Was working, then stopped

    Yes I was overclocking, but I do suspect the MSI board to be the culprit. Even with the voltage set to a max of 1.43 volts, it would spike upwards of 1.55 volts. Both board exhibited the same behavior when it came to power to the processor. I'm amazed at the difference in quality between...

    990FXA-GD65 Was working, then stopped

    UPDATE: It seems that after replacing the motherboard with an Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0, the computer still wouldn't post. The FX 8120 died. From launch to now and it crapped out.

    EVGA 730a motherboard issues

    Do you happen to get the blue screen issues while in safe mode? Are there newer motherboard drivers to play around with? Hell, are there older ones to mess with? I had a 780a asrock board and it got VERY hot around the NB/VRM heatsink. I had to have a fan on the heatsink, otherwise it would...

    990FXA-GD65 Was working, then stopped

    Suggestions are very appreciated, but with the cooling, the 1 case fan sits right above the VRMs pulling are out, over them. With the side panel off, it has an endless supply of fresh air to pull from. I cannot, however, rule out heat from the VRMs. Anything is possible with this motherboard...

    990FXA-GD65 Was working, then stopped

    Well I have managed to rule out power switch. If I changed outlets on the wall, the system blips on for a split second 1 time. After that, I have to change outlets for it to do that again. It simply will not turn on and post.

    I was using my system in rig for some good gaming sessions. I had recently started playing guild wars 2 and was having no issues at all. Last night while I was running some quests, the computer instantly powered down. It simply won't power up anymore. I've tried the simple stuff to rule out...

    Is there a newer BIOS available for it? I ran into a similar issue with my motherboard and the release BIOS not recognizing my 8120.

    Be careful with MSI and RMA's. As stated above, they do not do cross-shipment RMA's. I have been dealing with them for a few weeks now with my motherboard. Long story short, sent in the motherboard for some stability issues. Got the motherboard back in worse shape than I sent it to them...

    Can I use only my second PCI-E

    You could drill some holes in the case to allow better air flow, that aside you can swap to a lower location or even try undervolting to try and cool it down a bit.

    Quick question upgrading AMD Phenom II processor.

    Generally processors don't require a reformat. As long as you don't change chipsets (new motherboard) you should be fine. Just make sure the bios is up to date and the motherboard supports it.
