AMD Zosma 960T/1600T/1605T CPU Club - Page 74

dont really need a VRM block with a Sabertooth mobo you can use it but your defeting the ceramic coating on the VRM covering it up if you want to go that route of using a mobo block no need in using a Sabertooth

Hey guys, so I thought I'd join the club too smile.gif

Unfortunately mine only unlocked to an X5, but even at 5 cores this CPU is a beast! I love it.

337

Vcore is 1.41 on full load (Prime95, LinX etc)

The reason why I didn't overclock it by just upping a multiplier is because this motherboard is really bad at changing any settings. Once I change the multi, it doesn't cold boot.
I have searched around and found it to be a bios bug and that updating fixed it for some, but the thing is that once I update my bios it doesn't post anymore - and then I have to spend hours to fix it by removing the battery and so on, then when I finally manage to make it post - revert back to the old bios. It's just terrible.
This motherboard is horrible.

No matter what, I can't get the NB Frequency/HT Link anything above 2429 either. I've tried setting the CPU-NB voltage to 1.4, and NB voltage to 1.15 and that didn't help.

Any suggestions?

And sorry for the rant about the motherboard, I feel way unfortunate frown.gif

After a bit of playing over the weekend I got everything stable even after dropping voltage some.

I completely agree with this statement however the color scheme of the motherboard will throw off the look I have going inside my case, I used to own a sabertooth and that was one hell of a board but the color scheme got me. rolleyes.gif

AMD recommends the NB frequency to be 3x base ram speed -- it's part of their performance guide settings.

It's ok to run it higher, but lower than 3x may cause bottlenecking issues.

DRAM BUS Frequency = Dram multiplier x HTT -- so in my case, 5.33 x 200 = 1066mhz (or 533, technically, since it's ddr, which is why it's doubled).

no no no you misunderstood me when I said I didn't liek the color scheme, it's unique it really is but my build is Black, White, and Red. Hardly a place for greens, browns, and tans.

And that does look really nice in your setup. thumb.gif
