originally I could not stable at stock settings then I enabled hpc wich fixed that but if I go up any multiplier whatsoever the computer wont boot and goes to a bios message that shows the speeds its running at and its shows the base clock for the processor is 0.0mhz????????????????????????????????????????????

PLEASE HELP

I've had this before and I often have to reset my BIOS when changing the multiplier. (I'm running a 6300, also Vishera)

The only way I've had any success OC'ing thus far is by changing the FSB, not multiplier. I've been able to get ~4.2GHz moderately stable at 230 (auto 200) and turn down the memory multiplier a bit.

I'll reiterate that I've only had moderate success because just like you, whenever I change the multiplier after things are nice and clean with FSB settings, I get boot failure.

Changing LLC seems to make a difference in terms of stability as well (ultra high and high(?) seem to be the best options for me so far) My biggest questions right now are mostly around core voltage (tried auto and +.125) and memory timings.

I know changing memory timings can definitely lead to boot failures, so I'm wondering if I'm all off?

When I try 250 FSB @ x ~18.5, LLC set to ultra high, DRAM voltage 1.6, Core Voltage +.125 (w/ a base of ~1.34) and default memory timings (9-9-9-24 2T), I crash and burn (not literally).... Boot Failure

Seems like memory timings might be a usual suspect, no?

memory timing is on the xmp profile the ram came on I don't even mess with that stuff

I know its a little late for this now but....
Was I supposed to do something to prove I had a 990FXA board, before I started posting in this Thread?

Thanks, it's all a bit "old" as it is now... But I'm still a bit partial to this rig.

I seriously didn't think that the 8350 would cause the VRMs to heat up that much... but they make an insane amount of heat. Intro little VRM fan to save the day... wink.gif

But as luck would have it, the 8350 in question was bunk, a dud, a absolute "how did this make it off the line?" abomination of silicon. So It's currently taking a postal ride to meet the RMA gods.

Hopefully a quick/easy question here: (but who knows, lol)

***
Does running a single Sata3 ssd on this boards AMD sb950 RAID chip run slower then if it was just on AHCI? I know that RAID is basically a combo with AHCI anyways..but I only ask this because of a test setup i did yesterday.
***

One of my 128GB's ssd's bench's around 530mb/510mb read/write normally when the onboard Sata controller (sata ports 0-3) running as "AHCI". (that is within various test apps..as for the more thorough and valid AS SSD it gets a SEQ of 470 read and 193 write).

Now I setup a Raid 0 array with three other ssd's to test and then left the one single ssd (above) on it to run the OS...win7x64 in this case..and the array would be for storage and a quick access drive for certain programs...

The RAID array tested quite well.. (1245mb/1097mb read/write)..not bad for this onboard AMD chip..as I know the raid made by AMD/Nvidia is not the greatest, especially when compared to Intel or a separate RAID controller card (which I am also testing now...a LSI, that just gets out of this world speeds!)...but nonetheless, not bad for the AMD raid chip onboard.

But when I tested the single drive again (this time it was technically running via the onboard raid chip..but still same port, cable, os,etc, etc.) it dropped in performance by 20-25% and I'm curious if this is to be expected? It now tested at 405mb/375mb read/write on standard apps and as per AS SSD it was now testing SEQ 332 read and 135 write.
Oh and btw, it tested EXACTLY the same both times whether I had the other 3 disks up and running also on the controller at the same time or if they were removed and this one drive was left all by itself on the now (bios changed) raid sata controller...if I simply change the bios back to "AHCI" and reload os and test same drive again it goes right back to the original (faster) scores!

So, i'm very curious, does this (or any) onboard sata raid chip do some sort of bandwidth sharing or sub structure (per channel maybe) that would cause this type of change? I really wasn't expecting to see any change at all but then this happened and it left me wondering..just this AMD raid controller? or all? or just my board?

Please let me know if you know more about this.
Thanks

Nearly causing a few house fires...

Christ on a bike. House fires? That is kinda hilarious.
