that worked fine, thank you very much
just going to keep posting here, I have more questions...
1. I currently have p95 running small packets since 2230 yesterday...it's running fine and 1 core max temp has hit 70c. I'm going to let it go the full 24hrs just because I'm already close. I have coretemp watching temps and CPU-Z running, and I'm noticing that coretemp shows a steady CPU frequency of 4204mhz which is what it should be, while CPU-Z is fluctuating between 3500 and 4200. CPU-Z lists the multiplier in ( ) as 16-42. I went back through bios (at least I thought I did) and disabled all turbo and all power saving stuff, so why would it be throttling the CPU like that?
2. While in bios last evening I noticed that it would not let me input a voltage higher than the 1.195v that is the default. It will let me decreased voltage in .05 increments, but would not accept a higher value. If I tried to input a higher value, when I pressed enter the field would just revert to auto.
3. Also worth noting while fiddling around last night if I set the voltage down even .05 lower than the default 1.195v and tried to run p95, either p95 would crash or both p95 and computer would crash. I guess that's not really a question, just information.
much thanks to anybody who wants to respond and help out a newb
