    Hook up the cooler's fans to the PSU directly for top speed all of the time.
    Reseat the CPU cooler onto the CPU with new TIM too.
    You're not getting normal temps for that cooler/cpu combination.

    Check for a BIOS update from the motherboard maker that is newer than the one you have now. Update to the newest BIOS regardless of what it says it will fix. Sometimes they don't list everything that a new BIOS addresses.
    If your CPU is not on the list of compatible CPUs for that motherboard, consider getting a motherboard that is. That CPU requires more power than the last generation FX processors do. Does your board have the ass (required power) for that chip? Compatibility lists are your friend,........

    Take care of each suggestion one at a time and check your results as you go.
    Good luck with it too.

    so after setting up this build i had been trying catzilla bench

    litteraly every component is upgraded and pretty much system maxed
    yet i'm no where near my 16 k highest bench

    i'm lucky to get 14 k with this system build

    one extremely noticable thing is that the catzilla is loading a blank screen for about 15% of the bench test
    the nvidia driver before the last 1 fixed that, but like a dummy i had to jump at the next whql and have not been kosher since

    i did find out while messing with the PCIE Frequency if i put it around 110 mhz the bench would load perfectly, about 3 diferent times so far this had worked


    so with that info, anyone have any ideas to help?

    btw i'm still getting 16 gigs ram "hardware reserved" that i can not solve

    the specs r up on the machine i'm trying to fix, the ones that are relitive to our situation at least

    no ram disks
    i have uninstalled the kraken software and run the system with the kracken usb interface unplugged, so i know it can't be that

    the 2 video cards i used b4 and never had this problem, so i know it's not that
    the dvd drive never gave me problems whene it was on a different system, i know it's not that

    i doubt the PSU would reserve ram, and that leaves just the SSD, and the processor itself.
    i'm baffled.

    & for the heat problem i have re-set the Kraken Block to the cpu, this time used the carbon
    instead of the synthetic silver,,maybe there might be a difference? if your optimistic, and look hard enough

    the main page in bios correctly shows all 4 sticks as 8 gig

    i just got this from asrock

    "This is the very common issue from Microsoft. The simple way is do a fresh window installation.
    Please enter into the UEFI and check the total memory size that should list 32GB.
    The only place is not showing the whole amount of memory under the window 7 OS. Please contact the Microsoft for support. "

    i am not going to contact windows so i can pay them to fix what is wrong with their program. so i need to figure out how to fix this on my own.
    this is a list of what i have done

    1) physically reseated the ram
    2) Bios>octweaker>dram timing control>A)bank interlacing channel interleaving C) all timings changed
    3) Bios> changed clock speeds and latency settings on ram
    4) Bios>NB config > Iomm tryed off and on
    5) msconfig>boot> advanced options> max mem box is NOT checked
    6) CP>system>system prop>advanced>performance/Settings>advanced/virtual memory changed to a few things, turned off, set to minimum no matter what i do windows will always pop up a notification
    that it has set virtual memory.
    7) long list of regedit hacks and deletes
    8) loaded the latest bios update from asrock

    still looking for another way to STOP windows from making this page file. no luck yet.
    all research is pointing to the BIOS being bad, but Asrock says it's windows fault

    so i threw another HD in the mix and windows 7 is showing the same thing.

    asrocks recommendation of a new windows installation might cost a few hundred dollars, but it does NOT fix the problem.
    lesson learned?

    I don't think that it's a Motherboard problem. I think his CPU is having problems with it's memory controller.
    I wonder If calemus has access to another AM2+ or AM3 CPU to try out on the system?

    Sandy, you said that you didn't have these problems with your (almost the same) board,.................were you using one of those new mega-wawa CPUs on it?

    LOl My comment was more directed in the way of it not being an ASRock problem as he had suggested it was. A new Mega-what what?

    I guess it could be the memory controller on the APU but I don't know. This seems more like a software related issue to me. If it is hardware related then if he installs something like Linux the problem would persist right?


    Did he already try a clean install with NO additional software installed. or Drivers. Is the problem there if he boots into Safemode? Do you have an additional card in the pci slots like Wifi, NIC or sound card. Try a different slot as it could be an IRQ issue.

    It's one of the new FX series of (space Heater) CPUs, not an APU. That's why I question it's memory controller. If they're not cooled ~VERY~ well, they get wonky from overheating. Memory issues are one of the ways that they present.

    Mega-Wawa = Sh*t that I can't afford to buy.

    1 i did a new install of windows at the suggestion of the asrock officials advice
    problem persists even after new install of windows, even tryed a different hard drive in place of the SSD
    it is therfore not drivers, programs, or quicklaunch bar icon library

    the only cards i had were the video cards. and that is now down to just 1 gtx 660

    for the cooling i have the nxzt kraken x60
    the cpu never goes above 59 C on normal load, but that is only if i never let the clock get to 5 gig, which is the native boost


    so the mention of the "memory controller"
    how do i access this, tweak it, or fix it?

    It's built into the CPU and you can't fix it. That's why I asked if you had another CPU to try out on that motherboard.

    A Phenom class CPU or another FX? (a FX4000, FX6000, or FX8000 series CPU) If the problems go away with another CPU, then you need to RMA the CPU. If not, then you have eliminated the possibility that your CPU may be defective.

    It's a process of elimination.

    so i threw on an old phenom 4 core.

    problem is no longer present.

    tells me either the mobo can not handle the job, or the cpu's memory controller is shot.

    so the next step in trouble shooting would either be to purchase a
    cpu
    or purchase a
    new mobo

    Sounds like you found your problem. Replace the CPU. Try to file a claim with AMD for a replacement.

    Your FX CPU is the latest, greatest release from AMD. They run at an elevated clock cycle and are known for producing a lot of heat. Heat is the single worst enemy of any computer system.

    They call them the "Leading Edge" processors, and I call them the "Bleeding Edge". They may have been released prior to being fully ready, I don't know for sure. I have never used one of them.

    I would consider getting an RMA for the board first. Put a tiny mark with a Sharpie pen on the one that you send back, so you can tell if they return the same board to you.
    If the problem persists, get an RMA on the CPU, (again with a tiny mark on the edge of it for the same reason) and start again.

    I have a sneaky feeling that your ~real~ solution is gonna be a FX-8350 CPU. The Bleeding Edge is for adventurers, and people with unlimited cash on hand. (not me)
