Hi.
I just got the board running today , it has the 1304 bios.

My question, can it unlock the rest of cores of the 960t I got with it?

So what do you guys think? Do I need to Rma my board?

Was the 4 pin you plugged into the cpu header a different 4 pin fan, or your original cpu cooler fan? If it was a different fan, and the same type read errors occurred, I would suggest RMA.

@ Azcrazy you maybe one of the lucky ones to get it to unlock, i myself have it but it wont unlock:mad: lol, i have mine running @4gig just by using the multiplier and it never goes over 40degs underload.
Also im running on the 0901 bios atm because whenever i use the newer bios my system becomes unstable.
Its a gr8 chip even if it doesnt unlock thumb.gif

I have loaded optimised defaults and just gone through the clear cmos routine to see if that would help. I have had problems with this board and bios before, ie, when I bought it I was using windows 8 preview on my previous board so wanted it on this one. It would not install win 8 out of the box, after bios flash to the windows 8 64 1304 it still wouldn't install the os. After flash to 1304 win 7 64 bit I installed win 7 and followed the upgrade to win 8 preview. That was the only way could install win 8. If I install a fresh copy now though it installs straight away on the current bios. Im at a loss, is my board faulty?
Thanks in advance

I thought you had to have the flash drive formatted in fat 32 or 16 because its a dos program.

post #3146 of 10159
ok gentlemen... here's the deal... i want to reduce temps on my FX-8150 with my Sabertooth 990FX... here's a CPU-Z pic with my system specs...



Bios values are:

CPU: 1.4375v with 100% LLC
CPU/NB: stock with AUTO LLC
RAM: 1.65v (default)

i read that i can have lower vcore with this new bios (the new 1503 bios)... and i mean low vcore as: 4.7ghz with 1.39v or something like that...

my question is:

WITH MY CURRENT SETUP, IF I REDUCE SOME VCORE, WIIL I STILL GET THE SAME CLOCKS? (i dont know if CPU/NB and CPU voltages are like holding hands)

I don't need any less vcore with the new bios but I need less llc. Above 4.6 before the bios needed extreme and now for 4.7 on same volts 1.46 only need high. less llc = less temps for me

I am still running 803.
I tried some of the newer ones but couldn't get a good stable OC.
The newer bios (IMO) are more for BD.

Time to stop lurking and start posting tongue.gif Love this forum, tons of useful info in here that helped me get this thing running with no issues ( I had 3 diffrent BSOD + ati driver issues) I've got 16 fans + a dominator cooling her. Never seen my cpu/vcore above 45 (prime, aida, cinabench, heavenbench, etc.) I foresee a long relationship with this board. Thanks again gurus for all the info you guys share. anyone running the new bios yet? 1304 is fine for me so far
ambient temp:24C* ~7/16 fans @100%~
