Please excuse the stupid question, did you put the clear cmos jumper back?
I have everything powered off now and I'm going to wait a few hours and see what happens.
check for condensation into and around the socket..
Thanks, I did go in there in look around but I didn't see any condensation. I am finding that this system doesn't like a 9 or 10 multi and behaves much better with a multi of 11. As compared to my Maximus Extreme, this board is all over the place. Sometimes when hitting the reset switch, it just totally powers off. As stated above, yesterday morning, it wouldn't let me change any bios settings as it kept reverting back to default. Sometimes it boots up and sometimes it doesn't and it doesn't seem to matter if the clocks are high or not. It just kind of arbitrarily does whatever it wants to do. I might have a bad 1. I'm sure time will tell.

A little more...
all the tests except Nature are very very low.....
They beat my last score in 5 of the 7 tests and that's all I'm going for.
thats only a bit better in each test compaired to this run.... http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=9383607
i was expecting more from that sort of cpu speed....
I am the WINNER here.

ran out of fsb the maximus extreme tops out at about 530 max on a good day, decent individual test scores but the nvidias nature score pounds the ati's nature
nice! work glenboy is it you on xs? asking for asus top bios -_-
cheers masterchief , yes it is got the bios in the end
dont wanna go off topic to much but do the asus top bios work only for asus card ? if so i will probably pay extra and get an asus one
no it will work on any reference 4870x2 the only difference is you have to force flash it using the -f command as the SSID is different , my x2's are HIS ones and works no probs not really much difference but the main one is that you can run 1000mhz on the memory whereas with mine before anything over 950 and i got artifacts so i think asus has loosened some memory timings and also you can go up to 900 gpu core in ati overdrive (not that they'll run at that ) but you can say set 820 core which mine will run any games at, as all the rest go up to 800 max in overdrive
hey at least ati's has got the 03 score bugs lol i wish nv had that
yes that 3d03 bug is weird, mine and drouges are non bugged scores as all the tests are in line sort of speak but load i have seen on hwbot etc are bugged to hell weird how it only affects 03 not the other benches
heres one bugged one for you cowie look at the GT2 score i got , shame i can't claim it as a right score :bawl:
Bugged as hell at 4GHz.
