If you're upgrading to a new CPU, now may be a good time to update the BIOS too.

On the other hand, a talking clock in a Disney movie taught me "If it isn't baroque, don't fix it." tongue.gif

The only problem with that is people get rid of their old CPU then find the BIOS doesn't support the new one, it's always safer to flash to a supporting BIOS before fitting a new chip, the 960T has been supported since ver. 0404, the 0813 BIOS is fine but some people are having BSOD's with steam games on the bulldozer chips and 0813 hasn't completely fixed it but there is is a new BIOS in verification, it's already released for the Crosshair V.

Hi guys.

I have this board and have been overclocking my Phenom 2 955 cpu recently. I have reached a max stable in prime95 and Battlefield 3 of 3.9Ghz, 2600mhz on FSB

Sometimes i forget to put my cou cooler on "turbo" mode, and when i do, the cpu reaches 67-70C

This in itself is not worrying, becuase it hardly happens, and with "turbo" mode enabled on the cpu fan it stays under 60 at full load.

MY VCORE 1 and 2, however remain consistently 1-3C above my CPU temp, sometimes hittin 70-72C.
I know the cpu has a max temp of 62C and I generally dont exceed it, but what are the max VCORE temps? Is it safe to assume they are as resilient to temperature as my cpu? So i should keep them below 60C?

This is going to be hard, because even with all my chassis fans and cpu fans on max, and my overclcocked GPU and custom fan profile dumping heat into my case, my VCORE often temps go up to 65C

I should be receiving my Asus Sabertooth 990FX motherboard today. Now I'm thinking I want a new prossesor to go into the new motherboard. I was thinking about a: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Processor, Black Edition. As of right now I have a AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor, Black Edition. I was just wondering what people thought about the CPU upgrade ?

Dont panic,most mosfets can exceed 90c.
Just keep an eye on it.

However,keep the CPU below 55c for best stability. The max temp is 62c but stability is compromised after 55c.
You neglected to mention what cooler you have,if its stock,junk it for an aftermarket unit.

Thanks for the help. I have a Dark Rock Pro, keeping the CPU below 55C isnt an option when playing Battlefield 3 especially 64 player maps. And I play BF3 fairly often.

Do you think i should underclock it a bit, it used to stay around 50C on full load at 3.2Ghz.

Ive been running at 3.9Ghz and 58C-61C full load for a couple months now, bought the processor 14 months ago, how much life do you think the processor has in it if i continue at this temp?
