straight to F5 works, it erases current bios completely before flashing.
now it makes sense, system voltage
For reference so i can write these down:
HTPC (dual core 65W TDP, no gfx, HD3200 onboard, prime95 load):
stock: 82W idle CnQ, 88W idle, 138W load
oc: 102W idle, 165W load
Sig rig (quad core 125W TDP, 4830 OCed w/ out voltage mod)
stock: 136W idle, 218W prime95, 275W prime95 + OCCT GPU.
oc: 165W idle, 285W prime95, 345W prime95 + OCCT GPU, standby 10W, off 10W (surprising
Something wrong with this 10 while OFF, WOL is disabled, perhaps its the on/off charge? OFF should be << SB. Also my 12V line is fluctuating a lot more now.
Measured using a $25 energy meter
See you don't need a massive PSU! 276/550W used (276/0.8 efficiency = 345). 4830 consumes about 110w at load. Rare to max out 4 cores while maxing out GPU as well anyways...Edited by kevinf - 9/3/11 at 8:13am
