  1. Hi Wevs The board supports teaming but some have issues trying to implement it. You will probably need to download the drivers and utility from Marvell's site. As has already been mentioned it will depend on temps and voltage but I run my CPU at 4200 with no throttling issues.
  2. Like so many comments posted on NewEgg by users. He is an idiot. Reminds me of a user comment I read at Tiger Direct. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/se...EWS#ReviewStart
  3. I have good luck with OCZ memory. First screenshot is 12GB of 1333/9-9-9-27 rated memory running at 1333/7-7-7-20. Second screenshot is 4GB of 1333/7-6-6-21 rate memory running at 1760/7-6-6-21.
  4. Only the overclocked screens. For stability with 6 cores 1.45V at 4000MHz with 8GB of memory will be a more realistic configuration.
  5. What program is that. Supporting x number of cores and properly distributing the workload across the cores is not always the same thing.
  6. The individual core temps displayed for AMD processors are more or less useless. The temps in those screenshots are pretty much right on for the X6 processors that have been released so far.
  7. I have not seen anything in those screenshots that would scream fake. There is no such thing as a per core DTS for AMD processors so it really doesn't matter what temperature values are displayed.
  8. Shows 800MHz because of Cool n' Quiet and/or C1E. The 4200MHz screenshots were done with 2 cores disabled. Benching with all six cores will require a bit more voltage then that.
  9. I'm probably not the average type user to be giving an opinion as I very seldom run with less the 6GB of memory and usually 8GB or 12GB depending on the platform. With that said I always set a page file at 4096MB in size. I feel that although it may not be needed that amount is not hurting anything either.
  10. Your first link is wrong about the generalization of the page file and SSDs. The second link was in reference to drives with the JMicron controller only. With the current generation of SSDs the best place for the page file is on the SSD. Even though there is no issue with reading and writing to today's SSDs at the same if this was a cause for concern it wouldn't weigh in on the location of the page file. It is difficult for the page file to read and write at the same time as you claim when when on a typical system the reads outnumber the writes 40:1. Microsoft states the best place for the page file in on a SSD also along with the reasons. http://blogs.msdn.com/e7/archive/2009/05/0...drives-and.aspx
  11. Or even a 890 based board. I'd stay with what you have if you are not planning on moving away from the nVidia chipset.
  12. I have used a USB stick to flash every BIOS available for the DFI board without issue. The problem is either the preparation of making the USB stick bootable or the USB stick itself.
  13. I've never had an issue booting from a USB stick on the DFI board. "Removable Media" is not the correct boot option for a USB stick. The stick should be listed under the Hard Drive section by name if the stick is configured properly. You can also select it from the Post Boot Menu by pressing the "Escape" key during Post.
  14. 0.01V over Intel's spec will not have any adverse effect on the processor. The 1.65V warning is based on the default QPI/VTT value of 1.15V. The processor should not be subjected to greater then 0.50V difference between QPI/VTT and DRAM voltage. Most boards set QPI/VTT to 1.20V so you will be within that range.
  15. Because of AMD NDA I can't comment. I should be have screenshots the day the NDA is lifted though. This is filtered at HWBot for 550 processors only. I'm still running other benches. I'm sure others could do much better as I can't really get into this benching stuff anymore. http://hwbot.org/searchResults.do?directio...d=&offset=0

  19. I don't believe the price drop will be anytime near term. Neither the 470 nor the 480 gives AMD any reason to lower prices on the 5850 or 5870. Limited availability of the two cards for who knows how long will only add to the delay in any type of price drop. At the present time not only is AMD setting the prices for their cards but are also forcing the price point at which nVidia will sell theirs at. Any price drop that would make sense at this time would be on the 5970. If availability could be improved and the card sold at $50.00 less then the current suggested retail price the 480 would be pretty much dead in the water. Doubtful we will see this though as just with the 480 any card that can carry the performance crown for it's category will be sold at a higher price then reason would dictate. The one wild card in all this is the 2GB version of the 5870. Depending on performance and price it could shake up the whole apple cart.
  20. Xzi I think it depends on what the rest of your setup is like. The Gigabyte with USB3 and the M4A89GTD PRO without are the same price. Do you have devices capable of using USB3? Also what CPU are you going to use. Unless something has changed in the last couple of days the Gigabyte board cannot unlock disabled cores on X2 and X3 processors. And remember the M4A89GTD PRO with USB is only $10.00 more.
  21. What's up, Wevs? Do some stability testing using just one stick of ram. If it passes test the remaining two one at a time using the same slot as the first stick was in.
  22. The damage was most likely already done while at 4.0GHz. The amount of current necessary to cause that amount of damage cannot happen at stock voltage/speed. Intel has taken a stand on this type of failure and you will have a difficult time getting a RMA.
