Interestingly, I noticed that if I set the BIOS to DOCP instead of manual, it saves my multipliers and CPU-Z shows it at 20x!

My only concern with this setting is that the BIOS is saying DRAM OC at 1600 mhz, when mine is only rated at 1333 mhz

I don't know off it will fix it but you should disable apm as well

DOCP is a very good option to use with DOCP set there will be additional option to set the ram freq to 1333 if you like

under the ram freq setting select profile #0 or #1 and it will set your ram for you

some ram will run at high freq

some times ram manufactures make one ram chip and then lable it at different freq

you may try setting mult under DOCP and save and then switch manual

i always use DOCP to set up my boards

 

 

DOCP may change your CPU Bus Freq. to match your memory this is OK

my cpu is a amd 1090t and my ram has freq of 2000mhz

Hello,

I have a rev2 board and a phenom 965 C3
Just got my new board so im gonna start Ocing from stock again.

Can some one pls explain the difference between CPU/NB Voltage and NB Voltage?
Looking at my board and Cpu what should my Max safe voltage for every day use be on my CPU/NB voltage and NB voltage be?

Thanks

I stole philharmonik pic..rolleyes.gif hope this helps. Again future thanks for any info

I get an easy 4.0 GHz at 1.45V with 965BE. The latest 965 have stock 1.45V so you don't need to change anything other than the multiplier.

Thanks for the help with the issue guys; looks like using DOCP solved the issue of why it wasn't clocking.
Now I just have to figure out what's wrong with the voltage settings (with Prime95 it shot up to 65 in a few seconds at 1.38 volts, which is a little peculiar considering that with AMD overdrive it was auto-set to 1.41 volts and never passed 49 degrees! I guess I'll try lower voltages
post #4077 of 10159
@ItGoesTwo11:

14.5mm for the black ceramic covered part of the heat sink, slightly more for the brown part of the heatsink.
I have version R2.0 of the board.

@ocfanboy:

CPU/NB = L3 cache + IMC inside the CPU.
Don't go above 1.35V. Try lower first as the CPU/NB part of the CPU is large and too high voltage can cause the CPU to heat up too much and limit your overclocking of the CPU cores.

NB = NB chip on the motherboard.
You don't need to increase the NB voltage accept when OCing memory or HTref clock very high.

Ok guys so I got it to 3.8 with 5 hours prime95 stable. I got this on my old motherboard as well. I cant get 3.9 or 4.0 to run 5 mins even upping the voltage to 1.4625 doesnt help.

Any ways when I run prime 95 ,cpuz reports my vcore to be at 1.472v but its set to 1.45v in bios?
Also as u can see in the image cpu/nb voltage i leave on auto. Auto is at 1.350v. Is this safe?

Not to worry, some 965s need close to 1.5V to run 4.0GHz. The Sabertooth scales voltage down as needed if you enable power saving. So, I'd just set CPU to offset 1.5V and leave it alone.

Note my link above, cpu is actually running at 1.392V even though I've set it to 1.45V. You can use K10stat to experiment.

do someone else have this issue
Computer wont sleep, it will resume from sleep after some minutes, regardless of settings in windows, i have disabled resume on keyboad/mouse and it still does not sleep frown.gif
do someone that knows asus of a way to disable keyboad/mouse in sleep standby in UEFI? so i have to press the power button to resume from sleep?

its super annoying to set computer to sleep and it will wake up after some short minutes..
