What voltage u get in P95 at full load ??
post #1152 of 3278
I get about 1.4ish on stress testing like 1.42-1.44 is the highest I've seen. But i have only tested my last settings when i was using F4 bios. I'm going to try to drop my voltage in hopes that it'll stay stable with the new revised F6.
Let me rephrase that I use my old setting in the new bios. :-)
post #1153 of 3278
OK, i would like to know what voltage u gate to keep it stabel @ 4.4Ghz and what voltage did u set in BIOS. For example, if u set it in BIOS to say 1.4V, what voltage it will show in CPU-Z undrr P95 load. When u try it, let me know thumb.gif. I also wait for F7Beta BIOS feedback, but nothing so far.

So here are the two configurations i have gotten to run stable for 30 min on OCCT

I had my computer hooked up in the basement. But I moved it up to the 2nd floor to see how the temps reacted. So depending on what your ambient temps are, you may or may not wanna use these. If i back off the voltage one notch then i'm good up here but that drops me to 4.29GHz.

Here are my 4.4GHz specs tho. I will list them side by side so be sure to seperate the two. Should be obvious though.

4.4 GHz | 4.41GHz
CPU Clock Ratio x20 | x18
CPU NB Freq x11 | x10
CPU Host Clock 220 | 245
HT Link Freq x11 | x10
Mem Clock x6.66 | x6.66 (i use 1600MHz RAM)
DRam Voltage 1.65v | 1.65v
NB Voltage 1.150v | 1.175v
HT Link Voltage 1.250v | 1.275v
CPU Voltage 1.350v | 1.350v

While Stress Testing it displayed 1.39v on VCore in both settings. I just upgraded to OCCT 3.4.1
OCCT displays temps and voltages and everything, you can have it shutdown testing at certain limits as well. Uses HWMonitor built into the program. It's said running OCCT for 30 minutes is the same as running Prime95 for 12 hours or something like that. Plus has high heat settings and error checking settings.

My LLC is set to Extreme
Hardware Thermal Control is set to disable
CPU warning temp is set to 70c which actually freezes up the computer when it hits 70c
now the 70c is the socket temp not the core temps.

I set my TMP2 (socket temp) to 70c and my core temps to 55c in the settings menu in OCCT.

Messed with goat, got horns. frown.gif Sorry for crappy phone picture, but yeah. I think it was VRM or PSU failure. Leaning more twoard PSU since I took the sinks off the board and it looks 100% fine, other than THAT ^.

By the way, I had to cut the EPS12 connector wire, because it permanently fused to the socket.

EDIT: It just spontaneously happened, while I was messing with Windows. 0% CPU stress, and not even running 4.2. Just got the board back from RMA and I was running 4.05 at 1.408v. Computer up and shut off, and upon taking it apart, that.

Dude that sux! What psu were u using?
post #1157 of 3278
O man that's nasty! Wonder what caused it. Now I'm scared.

So does the board even work now? Is the EPS connector fused to the board connector?

Yea after i posted that i realized that it was probably in his rig details. Silly me

Yeah it's fused pretty hard, the bottom 4 might be possible to get off but I dunno about the top 4. No clue if the board still works, but it definitely wouldn't post (which I why I took it apart), oddly enough, the PSU still works fine haha. Need to go get a 9v in the morning for my multimeter, I'm curious about the PSU.

EDIT: I put the CPU and RAM into my old M4A board again, they are still alive! lol

I think the VRMs in my 990xa have given up on me. It just cut out while the machine was sitting idle at a web page and refused to come back. I would hit the power button and things would briefly try to spin up and then less than a second later the machine would stay off. I suspected either the MB or power supply at that point. I tried a few swap-outs and concluded it was the MB. I decided to gamble with an ASUS board and everything works again -- leading me to feel very confident that the board died.

I've opened a support ticket with Gigabyte. We will see how that goes. I guess I can always start complaining on Newegg if it becomes a real issue. :|
