Hey, It just doesnt show as a new volt in windows. If you use ai sweet you can see the real voltages.

Speaking of AI Suite II, I cannot get it to install. I've tried the installation disk and downloading it from ASUS. The installer will not initiate. Anyone else run into this?

This fixed it for me.

Run the patcher.
http://support.asus.com/Search/KDetail.aspx?SLanguage=en&no=B0CE1E0F-02A6-3B76-712C-CC36FF6174CD&t=2

Run the install from the installation disk (the downloaded file would not work for me).

That's it.

Hi when ever I change my volts in the bios , example 1.3750v, when system boots up on aida64, coretemp and and over drive shows a drop of volts to 1.3375v only. Bios set to CPU volts to manual.

Read your default voltage.
Go to BIOS, change voltage mode to offset and then add desired amount of voltage on top of default.
Use CPU Z for voltage readings.

Note that Overdrive reads default voltage.
Be aware of the fact that board is putting additional voltage beyond CPU's knowledge so when you are changing voltage in AOD, there is always fixed amount added on top of your desired value.
As I said, CPU Z reports correct (default + offset) voltage so use it for fine tuning ...

Yeah that stumped me too. Im adjusting Vcore manually and have 1.475 set in the BIOS and LLC set to regular and am showing 1.45 in CPU-Z. Weird.

Took a while to figure all that out. I was getting insane temps cause LLC kept bumping the voltage up to 1.5+ during Prime95 and my temps were shooting up to 57-58!!! Plus youve gotta turn the Q-Fan setting off otherwise youll be running your CPU fan below speed. First time I fired up Prime with a 4 gig clock, I shot up to 61C within a minute! My CPU fan was piddling along at 1200 RPMs.

Finally got everything figured out though I think and Im idling at 25C (ambient room temp is 20-21) and getting 47-48C during Prime95 at 4.013.

Really wanting to try for 4.2 but Im gonna need some better cooling I think for that.

This is such an awesome board though. My old ASRock 780G would barely do 3.8 at 1.5 VCore!!! This thing is shredding 4.01 at 1.45. Love it!

Does Overdrive even report the correct CPU frequency?? It doesn't seem to be in sync to either CPU-z or AI suite.

Just a FYI to all new owners, I was having ram problems running at their rated speed. Newest Bios fixed it.
