PS I'm running my unlocked deneb (127W unlocked) on a 95W board, plus OC to 4Ghz from 3Ghz wheee.gif
But I did put RAMsinks on my Mosfets. Just waiting to hear Marvin the Martian ask " Where's the Kaboom??? There was supposed to be an earth-shattering KaBoom!!!"
i noticed the 8+1 power phase and it SHOULD be fine but i just get the jitters when i see naked VRM mosfets.
my biostar ta990fxe is only a 4+2 but it has a monstrous heatsink on the mosfets which makes me feel much better about it biggrin.gif

yeah on where i have the red squares on the board.
idk about the bottom left one tho that may be for your NB

Imagine how i felt with naked 3 + 1 design MosFETs biggrin.gif They now have RAMsinks, and i'm still nervous! In time i'm going to get a better board, esp. since I know what to look for thanks to you guys on OCN. thumb.gif

33 minutes stable, core temps under 43c, board temps are around 48, idk what to do with that (good or bad?)

lol at least you sinked them.

looks fantastic. temps are good too.
what are you using to stress?
if its stable try to see if you can up cpu-nb to 2800Mhz
go through the same process of upping cpu-nb voltage till its stable
without going past 1.4v
then the same with 3000Mhz.
my board cannot get to 3000Mhz without going over 1.4v CPU-NB voltage so i just
keep it at 2750Mhz (250x11)
once you get your CPU-NB to a good place,
you can try lowering your cpu vcore from where its at now
to see if you can still keep stability.
if not just set it back!

I'm using prime95 64 bit. Why take my nb up? Will it be faster or more stable?

it increases performance on amd platforms thumb.gif
especially if you have high frequency memory.

You guys are killing me lol I'll give it a shot, I'm going to let prime run over night for now, I made it an hour so I'm gonna see if it stays stable till morning, my bet is on not lol. When I get home tomorrow I'll give the 2800 a try. Thanks for the help everyone!!!! Next......4.1

Prime's a good test - small FFT's and Blend - you want to run it for 24hours - I had a failure 22 hours in once while testing an overclock. I was annoyed to say the least! wink.gif a little more Vcore, and I was stable 24 hours.

Your NB speed is basically your L2 cache speed + memory controller. The faster this goes, the faster the CPU memory calls are. I think it reduces your memory latency a little - though I may be wrong.

Its worth playing with to see what you can squeeze out of it, you might be able to run it around 2800mhz without problem. If it feels slower though, nudge it back. It might be handy if you get a program to test memory read/write speeds, and just get scores at different settings, see whats best. smile.gif faster speeds will probably head towards instablility, which means more CPU-NB Volts and more heat - but I think your rig could handle it, your temps seem good. If the 48C is worrying you, maybe see if you can get an extra fan pointing on the NB / SB chips on the motherboard.
