I find 1.55v for CPU NB very high... here's a pic

My motherboard is Asus M4A89GTD PRO
Hope someone can help.
Thanks

My FX4100 was the same on that board, I waited ages for a non beta bios and it didnt seem to happen so I got a 2nd hand UD5 and chip was fine, I think you should email Asus I did, and got no reply. So rest asured its the bios not your chip! thumb.gif

Infact mine defaulted the CPU/NB at 1.5v and I could not chamge it at all!

I'm not trying to overclock my NB, default settings on my mobo sets cpu 1.2v, ram 1.5v NB 1.2v, cpu nb at 1.55v! thats way to high, if I lower it under 1.4V it will crash, I've asked a few people and they have that set as 1.2v, well mine wont even boot under 1.4v
bumping my nb from 2000 to 2400 allowed me to take my voltage @ 4.6GHz from 1.475 to 1.425

Great it wasn't just me! well my pc isn't dead after all ( noob me decided to bios update in windows ^^ ) once pc rebooted nothing but black screen ), I put my old chip in the mobo and it did some bios reset or something. I also tryed my FX 8120 in my uncle mobo and it worked fine and the cpu/nb was set at 1.2v! so it's a bug with the asus Bios. thank you so much for the info.

I'm going to order a new board tonight so I was wondering what about Asus sabertooth? I've got this fx 8120 and I might aswell get a new board for it, the amd athlon 450 can stay in this mobo now.

What are you willing to spend on the board, and do you need SLI and CFX support?

The Sabertooth is a great board - I have tried it as well as the Crosshair and we recommend either one. Here are 3dMark11 results for two systems, one with Sabertooth and one with Crosshair:

The Bios is especially good on both boards - great for rookie overclockers.
