The voltage will auto boost itself up to 1.464v on the CPU.

Holy cray ... 1.464v is way too high for a stable 4.5 -- reason why you have such high temps on idle. Have you run prime95 and use realtemp to see your temps at full load. I'm guessing it would be around 90 with that voltage setting. Have you tried lowering the voltage?

And i am pretty set on getting the Z77 Sabertooth and throw a 7950 on it and such to replace my sig rigs. If anyone has any tips please let me know. biggrin.gif

Best tip -- when in doubt, double wrap it.

Thanks for the input. Would changing the offset to "-" rather than "+" help? Currently I don't have my voltage fixed it's on 'auto'. Voltage is fluctuating with the demands.

Some readings after playing Crysis 2 highest settings and these were my CPU readings in OCCT. However it wasn't stressed enough as usage is low.

323

Looks like my min value is 1.38v in idle and up to 1.46v full boat.

I don't bench my CPU and I'm not keen on putting it through a stress test. What is a good bench test I can use to put my CPU through?

Besides, quiet is not what I'm after, never has been. I always got a desk fan on somewhere next to me and the PC in this small room, and it's really a hot day out there today, 30c - my temps are proof of that
:

My case has a fan mount on the back. I'm going to install it to help the air be pulled back and out of the case. The front of the motherboard will see air being run from the bottom/front and out the top/back. The CPU will use something like a H100 or a Thermaltake equivalent. Looking at the air movement diagram(for TUF armor) on the asus website... this seems to work well.

Has anybody tested if the armor actually improves temps?

agreed. at that voltge I pressed my chip to 4.6 and then a farted out a couple more hertz..thats ALOT of juice bud. I found that Auto voltage just went to high. The only time I leave it at Auto is when i'm feeling frisky and want to OC past 4.5( 1.28v). heck I'm stable at 4.6, 100BCLK, 1.35-8v...I can't imagine what temp I'd get at 4.6,1.46v...I almost fainted wehn I saw 91c at 1.38v
<---pup says "waaat? 1.46v?"

From my understanding, manual mode which I have mine set to is static and remains constant regardless on load. Having it on Auto the bios will set the voltage according to cpu draw and thermal conditions. So when you are on idle you will have one voltage and when on full load another voltage. This saves power. The offset +/- is calculated after the chip has requested voltage based on frequency.

Right now your voltage in bios is 1.282. offset of + increased that by a offset set by bios. You need to see if you are stable at 1.282. If you are you should set a manual offset '-' to decrease idle and load voltages. If you are not stable set an offset of '+' and manually increase it. If you are lazy and want to play it safe set your offset to '+' and .02. This will set your full load voltage to 1.302 which should be well enough to get your stable. I have my chip stable @ 4.5 with 1.210 voltage.

Thanks again for the pointers.

Got it down to 1.29v @ 43. Ran a little OCCT test. Temps are much much better now. smile.gif


323

Going to try back up @ 45 after I see stability where I'm at right now.

I can run 4.6 stable at 1.25 voltage...donno why you keep going so high.

I'm considering this mobo for my next build & was wondering if anyone can tell me if the will be any clearance issues with the following HSF & RAM:

HSF: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2

RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 Model CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10

Thanks!

Greeting to all saber lover. After a week reading this thread finally able to finish the 12x pages...
Cant figure out why i cant get the pic straighten out.. Worse cant post a pic at all..
At the very least i could say thank you to all of you. With patience i manage to fixed up my pc. Runs very smoothly with boot up time of 30secs.biggrin.gif
