    Introduction To UnOfficial EVGA X58 Classified Owners Thread

    As per my previous post - i am creating this new thread for all owners of the EVGA Classified Only - Not The Evga X58 3x Sli - to share their experiances, problems and overclocking achievements with this fantastic board

    the first few posts will be reserved for photos of the board and my rig and my experience with the board

    i hope all of you will help me with this thread by posting to this thread instead of creating a new thread every time

    I hope you will enjoy it as well

    Thanks

    I'm having a prob with my classified 760 resuming from S3 sleep mode. It eventually resumes, but it takes twice as long as it should. I'm basing this on timing 8 other x58 boards with identical settings and components. I'm not asking how to speed up the performance, I just want to know how many seconds from power button, to being able to move the cursor around on the screen. To do the test, all you need do is make sure S3 suspend type is set in bios as it defaults to S1.

    What is your bclk value?
    There is a setting in the BIOS in that area that states VGA BIOS something and it defaults to auto. Try playing around with it.

    Only thing to add is that I have never used exotic cooling like water, DICE, LN2, phase, I like to keep it simple.
    My cooler of choice is the ifx-14 with dual fans.

    I hate to admit it, but I'm a total OC whore. That is, I'll give up a lot to get a board that will give me the best OC, and with the Classified, boy, do you give up a lot!
    Bad CPU placement, a NB cooler that prevents you from running a full sized air cooler, smart fan that doesn't work *by design*, EIST and sleep mode don't work right. To put these complaints in perspective, just about every other vendor does not have these same short comings, features work.
    I don't think that your ifx-14 is a full sized air cooler. Its a over sized air cooler imo and the best part about it is that it does not really cool any better then a regular TRUE. S3 sleep mode works when the bclk setting is below 210 with the VGA BIOS thing turned on.
