So guys how is this mobo in terms of stability?

Thanks!!! biggrin.gif

Well, I tried 4.5GHz all the way up to 1.3V and it still gives errors in event viewer pretty quickly, but that's a bit immaterial because I'm sure the temps at 1.3V would be too high to be practical. So 4.4GHz @1.270V it will have to be.

Anyone able to help with setting up a CPU fan curve?

I would say its VERY good
Well mine is.

It's a stable board....... unless you put it on top of something that is wobbly tongue.gif

Judging by the thread, the board is stable if it works. If you're one of the unlucky few who seems to have a problem then obviously not; but that's probably the same for a lot of boards.

What does everyone recommend as a stable bios for this board? I'm about to buy this and was wondering if I should update the bios right away, and to which one? Thanks.

I figured it out. In click bios you have to select from the menu and in the actual bios you have to type values in. Noticed it when i oced my ram and went to change timings biggrin.gif

Was there a BIOS update after H60 that got pulled due to some sort of problem?

A few days ago I was being prompted for a BIOS update, and today that update's gone but I'm still on H60.

Bug in the BIOS update and the update was pulled? Doesn't really matter, just curious.

Wait what bios are you running. There was a bios update that improved overclocking I couldn't get stable past 4.5 then I updated the bios and I could get it stable at 4.9 so far

I'm on the BIOS as of 2012-12-19. The one named 7751vH6.zip on the downloads. It's the latest official BIOS I can see.

Where do you test for stability? via prime reporting errors or via event viewer reporting errors? I use event viewer and as soon as I get a WHEA parity error I consider the overclock unstable and increase the voltage. Prime never reports any errors for me regardless of how many I see in event viewer.

4.4 is ok though. If it's being judged by the same standard across the board by everyone posting here in terms of stability then it's well below average; but I kind of get the impression that there's a lot of reliance on prime to report errors based on the output your CPU generates Vs the known outcome of the calculation which prime uses, and for the most part it seems that tons of WHEA errors in event viewer don't cause the CPU to output an incorrect value for the calculation (in prime at least). I'm not too sure how these errors manifest themselves in the long term though.
