by using A2 and B2 dram slots you won't be hitting you HSF

A quick note, there are two Vcore sensors. VCORE-1 is for the CPUv, and VCORE-2 is for the CPU-NBv. You can see the temperatures on the right picture. Really cool to see how each part of the CPU effects the board. The problem is that there is only one voltage sensor, and it is for the CPUv. I would have liked to see one for the CPU-NBv since it is just as important as the CPUv

So Temp2 is for Northbridge or CPU/NB "chip"? As you could see at mine Aida Extreme sensor panel I have actually sensor which measures temps for Northbride and it was around 40*C under load.
If you could just briefly explained me what settings should I set in DIGI + VRM section or should I leave it just untouched ? A screenshot from your Bios would be apprieciated. smile.gif
Anyway I will try later your settings as soon as I have overclocked system using only multiplier.
Yeap I know that they should be stable. For example CPU Vcore - idle (BIOS) is set to 1.4500 V and it goes up to 1.5200 under heavy load.
I run on the latest version of BIOS 1208 with updated RAID Rom. Does it make any difference ? I thought you wrote a few post earlier that this new BIOS is quite decent.
As I read on Asus website:
Quote:
Version 1208
SABERTOOTH 990FX BIOS 1208
1.Improve system stability.
2.Enhance compatibility with some USB devices.
Version 1102
SABERTOOTH-990FX BIOS 1102
1.Improve system stability.
2.Enhance compatibility with some USB devices.
3.Patch system hanged when use AM3 1090T or 1100T CPU. ??? <-- what does it mean? smile.gif
I don't think CR of my memory should be any problem but I run my ram on 1T. I have 2x4GB Ram sticks and which are seated in DIMM A2 and DIMM B2 slots.
One more question:
How can I change CPU VID voltage from 1.45 ? I've seen truckerguy had has it set to 1.375 V IIRC


you CPU/NB is also your IMC one and the same its inside the cpu

Lol Dont feel too frustrated I sold my 965 the other week and replaced it with a 1090t. It performs almost identical to this, it needs 1.44v and load line calibration set to ultra high to make 4ghz stable. However I'm still very pleased with the swap, ended up costing me £25 to do the swap on ebay. Well worth it IMO. Took a few pics once the comp was put back together.

Have you changed anything else besides LLC setting?
On my old rig with PHII 955 BE (I know, it's a quad-core) I could easily run it having 3940 MHz with only CPU 1.36V and CPU/NB 1.26 or even lower. Oh, and with NB Freq set up at 2830 MHz. Of course there were Vdrops but it didn't have any impact on HTRef clck stability. And of course it was much cooler than this.
I have bought Thuban only because one said that its IMC is better and I can OC my RAM higher.

I know, this is other story with 1090Thubans, but do I really need to push the voltage to 1.45 V (1.52 under load) and set almost every option in BIOS which should help to stabilize my CPU on full ?
CPU LLC = Ultra High or even Extreme
CPU NB = HIGH
CPU current capability to 120% weirdsmiley.gif

and many more other voltages and options which should run on standard level providing stability.

I will download earlier revision of BIOS and maybe it will work better. Hopefully smile.gif
BTW What BIOS rev. do you run on?

And those fans on your CPU cooler... what brand is this?

The cooler isnt one of the most well known heatsinks but is probably in the top performing 10 air coolers and the fans are Sythe Gentle typhoons. Kinda expensive and wierd looking but move massive amounts of air for all the noise they make, best fans ever imo. Here is a couple of links if your curious:

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coolers/display/120-140-fans-roundup_18.html
http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=2572

Yea, i've pretty much followed the standard procedure ht-2000 NB-2800 CPU/NB 1.25v ohh and dissabled power saving features (not that it really benefited my OC) One thing im a little curious about is the CPU voltage frequency, should i whack it up full or leave it on auto?
Running 203x19.5 at 1.43v just to overclock the ram a little for the time being, I'll continue messing round with it myself but let me know if you figure out how to get a little higher clockspeed without anymore volts!

BTW Latest 1208
