    I don't think so.

    I pray for you.

    Careless accident do happens when you build PC, let see what the misfortune I had. Burned out a video card, shorted on board fan controllers, dropped a plier on waterblock and dented it, scratched a good aluminum case. I think that's it.

    ?? I have 4 SATA HD's and a SATA DVDR in my 900 with the Maximus formula. Only #5 is open, but it could easily fit if needed. I guess it helped to put them below my wire "bundle" :$ as the Maximus rides low in a mobo-tray-less case. Took forever though. Hope that helps. Sorry to hear about the card, man that sucks. Hope it still works.

    On a slightly better note, I got another 2g of Ballistix PC2-8500 from my friend who wanted basically identical sticks from a favorite brand of his. Since I added them, I had to turn down OC on cpu to 3,150Mhz (450 FSBx7) and DRAM down to 1040Mhz, which is below spec. To top it off, they only work at 2.3v or system is unstable. Is this possibly because I have turned down the NB below stock at 1.35v? The bios actually shows the NB voltage in red when I try to set it at stock 1.62v, which I thought signified risky settings. Any thoughts would be welcome.

    So, you got another 2gig of mem at the same brand and model but it doesn't mean they are exactly identical match. Because they didn't come as a 4gig kit, they didn't manufacture at the same time?

    Normally when you use up 4 dimm slots the system don't overclock well, in some cases.
    NB 1.62v @ 3.1G is way to high in the voltage. What's the temperature for the CPU & NB?

    I bet the NB temp is around above 50ish degree? If your NB temp is about in this range then your system will unstable.

    Deton managed to finally found some time to push my system further to 3.6ghz successful!!

    Realized that previously i was unable to reach 3.6ghz was my PSU the Fortron Source Power 700W was simply not up to mark even @ vcore 1.55 my system Failed to POST...the moment i slap on my Antec 1kw Quattro and up my vcore and FSB to 400 and Rams finally in spec of 533mhz my system Quad Prime stable for 8hrs+ temps are pretty high @ 74 degree Celcius !!!

    The only thing i have left is probably to slowly reduce my vcore currently im on 1.503 to reach 3.6ghz i will find somemore time to work downwards

    In Fact if by reducing anything lower than 1.5 vcore and my system will not POST i will probably revert back to my trusty and cool running 3.5ghz @ a much lower vcore 1.45

    BTW Thanks for all yr Earlier advises

    The first thing I would try is this:
    Go into “Add and Remove Programs” and uninstall your MB’s built-in sound card drivers. Then reboot, but load into the BIOS, not windows.
    Look around in the BIOS for a way to disable the onboard sound. Since I do not have this board yet, I do not know if you even have this option available to you.
    Either way, when finished in the BIOS, save and reboot, but turn your PC off before it loads Windows. Open your case and unplug the sound card, being sure to put it in a safe, static free place.
    Next boot the PC into Windows and go to the Asus website and D/L the newest drivers for your MB’s sound card. It should be here:
    http://support.asus.com/download/dow...Language=en-us
    Navigate to your MB’s D/L page and D/L the drivers. You may also want to grab the newest BIOS as well if you don’t already have it.
    Once you have the driver, install it. Be sure to make a note of where the files unzipped or extracted to during this process. Now shut your PC down. Open it up and replace the sound card you removed then load back into the BIOS if you were able to disable the on-board sound and re-inable it. If not, then just skip this and load straight into windows once you have the card installed.
    Once you are back into Windows, the “Found New Hardware Wizard” should eventually pop up. If it does not automatically install the card, you may have to chose the “Install from a specific place” option, and manually point the Wizard to the files that you unzipped/extracted earlier.
    This should fix your problem. If it does not, repost what happened during this process and I can give you further TS instructions.
    Hope this helps.
    Thank you for the advice. I had somewhat tried a similar procedure and after following what you had suggested I ended up in a continuos loop of found new device. I was a bit suspect of my original choice of install CD's when I originally setup the system. I had my original XP Pro SP1 CD and I also had XP Pro SP2 Dell version setup CD, I chose the SP2 version. The reason I chose the Dell SP2 version is because the earlier Sp1 version does not recognize drives over 131 GB which SP2 has resolved this issue.

    Long story short I thought maybe the Dell disc might have been installing some .inf files that might have been causing the issue. So I took my original SP1 version and slipstreamed SP2 update and reformated the computer with this new slipstreamed version. Took care of the problem so now I'm just creating an image file for future cloning, should I need to.

    Problem resolved.

    Good for you. I figure your temp will be at that high because you're on air cooling. Some people are willing to leave it at 3.6g with air cooling, because in the real world applications don't tax the CPU at 100%. I personally wouldn't do it, too hot for my liking. The hotter your rig get, the sooner your hardware going to die on you unexpectly.

    Not any PSU equally handle the overclocking hardware, event they have the same power output. I had the sampe problem with my OCZ 700w PSU. It doesn't mean a bad one but it just not stable when you OCing it.

    My 3.6g @ 1.425v and the load temp is around 52c @ 100% load, watercooling though.
    Here is my rule of thumb; I will overclock the CPU to the highest stabled Mhz if I can and also keep its temp around 60c @100% load.

    Default SLI on Maximus formula?

    Here comes another stupid noob (thats me) question:
    can I sli Nvidia cards on this board or does it have to be Ati and x-fire?
    What is the issue here? bios?

    You cant SLI nvidia Cards on this board, x38 was not designed to adopt SLI they are meant for ATI CrossFire

    The only Intel chipset that can do both CrossFire and SLI is intel SKulltrail and HP BlackBird 002 PC

    SLI only works with Nvidia chipset and they're holding license right of it. No way they are going to sell that license.
    Actually HP came up a special BIOS codes for Crossfire MOBO (Blackbird) to work with Nvidia's card and HP holding that sceret codes close to their chest.

    Default Cat 8.3 released!

    Well the card worked ok, but I wasn't sure until today's Cat 8.3 release. It worked wonders for the 3870x2!!! So, I highly recommend anyone else with the card to go upgrade your Cat drivers. I'm playing Crysis on all Very High settings with minimal lag. Although I absolutely hate any sort of lag so I may play on just High. Anyway, before the Cat 8.2 the card was having all sorts of weird graphical glitches. All gone.

    Since that whole thing I've had another problem regarding my overclocking and stability (even though I've already survived the 8 hour OCCT). I'm thinking about switching it up a little. I'll let you guys know.

I'm playing Crysis on all Very High settings with minimal lag. Although I absolutely hate any sort of lag so I may play on just High.

    i'm so tempted to buy one 3870x2 right now ... but i will be waiting for the GDDR4 version apparently it will come with some slight increased clock revision becos they gonna use a newer PCB

    you should wait until the PXL PCIe 2.0, GDDR4 and shorter PCB versions as well, also they're going to have 4 DVIs versions too. It sounds very promising.

    Definintely, Formula can handle PC2-9200 Reaper. If you want dual 2gig sticks then you have to go with the ReaperX model. The down fall of this model that you only can use 2 slots of DIMM due to the oversize of the heat pipe. No future add on 2 more sticks here.


    I think it is memory compability. Check Asus website for the compable ram chart. You should have any problem to run its at stock speed if it is compable.




    I knew this will happen when I discovered this issue.
    Ok, you have few options here:

    Option 1:
    go back to Asus's sound card to use the PCIe slot or buy another sound card that use PCIe slot.

    Option 2:
    replace the video card's stock fan with aftermarket fan so you don't have to use the fan shrould. Hopefully this will give you some room for the sound card in between them.

    Option 3:
    sell your existing cards and get the HD3870 X2.

    Option 4:
    this haven't done it before but try and let me know if its working or not;
    Install only one video card on the second PCIx16 slot, don't install the sound card yet. Boot --> install driver for the Vid.
    Now install the sound card on the first PCI slot. Boot --> install driver. If this work then install the second video card on the first PCIx16.

    Hopefully this will solve the IRQ conflicting between the sound card and the video card. Good luck and don't forget to post the result.
    I choose option 1, ASUS sound card loaded & works, ATI CAT 8.2 Suite loaded and picked up 1st HIS 3870 video card in slot 1, however 2nd video card not recognized as a ATI, & default loaded with VISTA drivers in my devise hardware. Today I loaded ATI CAT 8.3; with same results it recognized the 1st video card & defaulted the 2nd video card with VISTA default drivers. Note I tried to uninstall ATI CAT 8.2 before loading ATI CAT 8.3, however VISTA Premium 65 bit only gave me the option of change or repair under the uninstall program? So I install an unclean version of ATI CAT 8.3 – result still no crossfire.

    You may have to use Driver Cleaner utility to uninstall the old driver or you might have to reinstall OS from scratch if you have no luck with Driver Cleaner.
    BTW did you click on the crossfire box to enable the second card in CCT 8.3?

    That’s what I thought – Driver Cleaner. I did click the enable crossfire box the 1st time I loaded the drivers. The check box never came up again, as I believe the next time I installed the drivers it only recognized 1 ATI video card so it didn’t give me this option? Also, this may be a dumb question, but do you know if there is a difference between ATI Catalyst 8.3 drivers for 2 x HIS 3870 & the HIS 3870x2?

    i love the new catalyst 8.3 drivers. i just used catalyst install manager to remove the old 8.2 drivers and it worked perfect.

    i picked up a eah3870 today to crossfire with my eah 3870x2. i was so excited to get that card in my computer that i forgot to get a bigger power supply. i guess ill get a bigger power supply tonight or tomorrow.
