does it throttle the voltage down? What speed are you overclocked too?

C-States are for Core parking where it shuts down individual cores... can cause issues when overclocking higher speeds.

Are you overclocking BCLK with 125 STRAP ? It was my understanding that when you up your bclk the speedstep engages, but the voltage doesn't drop down.

Hey again, you guys have been a massive help and this is before my CPU/MB even arrives haha (tomorrow).

I'm sure I'll be back on here then for some tips.... thanked a couple of your posts as they were very detailed and exactly what I needed to try and understand where to start when overclocking this thing. biggrin.gif

your north chip above the cpu is watercooled?


There is no northbridge chip, its on the cpu dude. The heatsink above the cpu is the mosfet heatsink and btw, there are fets on both sides of the board. You should throw some sinks on the back too.

I never called it a northbridge. I said north of the chip...

edit: it seems i didnt say north of the chip.. i did say north chip. I know theres no "northbridge" smile.gif

New 3820 arrives tomorrow, Asus has already issued me RMA for my board, I wonder if I should sent it back anyway.

Having a spare board is a good thing but not if the vrms are a bit dodgey its your call dude thumb.gif

Are you overclocking BCLK with 125 STRAP ? It was my understanding that when you up your bclk the speedstep engages, but the voltage doesn't drop down.

I just used the multiplier cpu ratio at 43x, 4.3GHz. When I run Prime 95, it goes up to 1.336v - although I won't be hitting that voltage unless I do something really intensive. I am not overclocking with BCLK - it is by default 100. All C states are enabled. Would there be a problem. I just loaded system defaults, turned the multi ratio to 43x and offset to 0.50vs, enabled C states. That's it.

no it shouldn't. I was able to achieve a stable overclock of 100x43 with auto voltage, I assume you mean 0.050 offset not 0.50 offset ?
