mobo says cpu is how when not, and multiple splash screens - Page 4

OK... how do get rid of those splash screens? anyone have the same mobo and got rid of that?

Two things:
Disable the HDD splash screen by disabling the marvell controller in the BIOS. No I don't know exactly where the option is; you'll have to find it in the BIOS.

Your computer wasn't 5 ghz in prime95 because (I'm guessing) t's exceeding the amps and watts draw (e.g. youre burning out the processor by trying to run it at 5 ghz at 1.54(??) volts in prime 95. Not only are you going to have to set the settings manually (There are some nice stickied guides for your motherboard here), but you can up the amps and watts current capacity to I think something like 200/200 should be ok.

Then take some time and read some guides. It's best to start at 4.5 ghz and find the safest load voltage you need to be stable, and then slowly work your way up in speed. You can test 4.5 ghz with prime or games, but make sure that the processor does not downclock while running prime--that's bad.

Grab a good heatsink and fan.
And I recommend not running prime at 5 ghz if you're at something like 1.5v, unless you're just seeing if it downclocks; even a great HSF won't keep a CPU cool if you pour 1.5v into it...

BTW you're always going to get a new processor detected if you remove the cpu from the board; that's common on asus boards.

prime 95 WILL NOT push my CPU to max frequency, it WILL NOT exceed 1.3V this is even if i have turbo disabled! it does make my CPU hit 98C no matter what even if i have turbo disabled! so this is annoying me to no end, games work fine, i did disable the marvel adapter, it still does 2 splash screens, but not 3, and it boots much faster

it does 30-38C at idle, and during games it does not exceed 65C

I think we are at the point where you need to start your OC over from scratch following a guide. If your CPU is hitting 98c and not going to the max clock you have set, then it is clearly throttling itself since it reached its thermal ceiling.

Another thing to consider (but probably unlikely) is that you damaged your chip when you had tried to use the overclock button to reach 5 ghz with it on auto and the volts were reaching 1.54.

I would load optomized defaults and slowly start over by finding out stable voltages for 4.5 and 4.8 and then deciding if you have a chip that can move up to 5.

I anticipate you saying that you have already done this and it's a waste of time - but look where we are now, so many things have been changed and debated that you have too many variables, a chip that has hit its thermal threshold multiple time and at one point took 1.54 volts.

Start over and take your time, a careful thought out overclock will be more efficient in the long run than a quick and dirty one.


Edit: What CPU cooler are you using? Not the stock cooler.... I hope..

1. it is FINE in games, when i had at 5 it 1.5v in games, in prime 95 it NEVER went above 1.3V and it ALWAYS hits 98C no matter what, in games it is FINE now at 4.4 it does not go above 1.2V and 65C

oh stock cooler

"Fine in games" does not mean that it will even work, let alone not be fried in two weeks from being at 1.5. The fact that it throttles itself should tell you something.

You seem to be trying to claim there is a problem with Prime, when most likely your OC settings are the issue.

If you don't want to listen to advice that is fine, I can unsubscribe from this thread. But an OC not failing in a game is not proof it is stable, having an unstable or unideal OC can and wil damage your chip.

We are just trying to help you.

Also what CPU cooler are you using?

i told you it is not hitting 1.5V at all in games the way i have it set now, in prime 95 it ALWAYS even at stock, hits 98C even at stock, i do not know what is wrong with prime 95.....

also stock cooler

There is your problem. Look how many people with a 5ghz OC are on water or high end air - the stock cooler has no business likely above 4.0 - 4.2.

The fact that it reached 98 in prime at stock speeds indicates that it isn't seated correctly or has an improper application of TIM.
