I am having weird issues with these V readings, for sure. RT gives me idle@1V~, but when on load it reads 1.366 although I set it @1.32V and CPU-Z reads it at 1.32V. What is max V I should go on air, btw? I read on ROG forums they go 1.4V freely.

Well, I'm currently learning myself...

http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...explained.html

It may be that RT will show VID from a table depending on load, this mean only a number that indicate what voltage the CPU need to run at current speed. This could explain why when idling @ 1.6GHz VID shows as 1v and when on load another VID value that mean the voltage the CPU need to run at that OC'ed speed. In fact, it is possible that RT don't read voltage at all.

It's easy to spend 30 minutes Googling for VID, Vcore, RealTemp, CPU-Z and a mix of those. I just did and yet cannot tell you exactly what's the real deal.

Now I wonder, when my processor idle, does the voltage really lower @ 1v? i don't see it move using CPU-Z but I see the VID change in RT like I previously said and after reading on the subject I'm not sure if RT only report suggested voltage requirement values from a table according to load.

LAKF already provided this information in one of his posts, but I can't find it. You might be able to find it if you search back through his posts to this thread for a few weeks or so.

The one I have is about 11 inches... (yeah, the card is too )

So can you basically overclock this board using this new windows based interface or is it still best to do it via BIOS post screen? There is alot on this board i'm not familiar with, asus always has crap loads of software that I can never make sense of

Sure, the dimensions of the TOXIC HD-6950 are 10.75 inches in Length, 3.875 inches in Height, and 1.5 inches wide /or 270mm(L) x 110mm(W) x 37mm(H), SLIGHTLY smaller than a Reference 6950's 275mm x 110mm x 38mm.

Either OR ... you can do it in the BIOS {Advanced on Left / EZ Mode on Right}



, but with Asus AI Suite while in windows



you can also use either Auto Tuning for FAST {4.2MHz} CPU/System Level Up
or EXTREME {4.6 MHz} CPU/System Level Up



or/ Also using Asus' TurboV EVO, for a more hands on Overclocking.



or/ you still have the ROG connect to OC CPU & GPU via using a 2nd device too,



... you seriously have OC options coming out the ass with this little board.

Holy sheet! Which would be the best one for a beginner sandy bridge overclocker? Again, I only have a Dark Knight HSF, so I can't push it too hard

thanks 4 sharing LA K. looks like fun. Installing AI suite now. my pc is smooth for the second day now, no more trouble after 0403 bios.
just back from a round in world of tanks, it newer looked better.
Going to stick with the auto tuning 4 now, but I have a friend that have done 3 ore 4 machines with this card so he knows it inside out. He would help me tune it when I was ready.
