VRMs are quite durable. Theyll throttle before any damage is done. But try to keep it below 85C.

And the theory is that the lower you can get your vrm temps, the lower your cpu's socket temp will be too.

I've been having some odd issues, and figured you guys might be able to lend a hand. I've been working on my first real overclock, however I've had some issues that happened once before begin to show up again.

So what's the issue?
I got this new build about 4 weeks ago, after having a GPU RMAed I got it back up and running. However, once I went into windows and attempted to open GPU-Z the system would freeze. I'd have to power it off, unplug the PSU, and wait until the cap's discharged before starting it back up. Eventually that issue just went away magically. Fast forward to today. I changed the CPU multiplier by the stock 17.5 to 21.5 using AOD and seemed to be running steady after a few failed runs at 22. So I set up prime 95 and went to bed to make sure it would hold overnight before messing with voltages. I came back this morning and it apparently had crashed. No big deal, I'd just start over at 21 and see how that went. However, now CoreTemp won't load. So, I installed HWMonitor, opened it up just fine, but it only displayed temperatures for my HDD, that was it.
I decided to go back into the BIOS and downclock it to 20.5 (Oh I earlier decided to change the multiplier in the BIOS rather than AOD), and once I rebooted my temps were all back in HWMonitor, however it appears my multiplier isn't saving? I'm now aslo able to boot up CoreTemp, and under a full load with Prime95 it appears to be back to the stock multiplier.


Specs:
CPU: AMD FX-8320
Cooling: Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme
Mobo: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7
GPU: Gigabyte HD7950
PSU: Toughpower XT 1275 Platinum
RAM: 2x4GB of Patriot Viper Extreme @ 1600mhz (stock)

Any thoughts? Here's a few pictures of my current settings, let me know if you notice anything out of place, or need any additional info.

I'd say get rid of AMD Overdrive. Not sure on others views of it, but it's been super glitchy for me any time I've used it. Even had to remove it from my Laptop as it was causing random crashes. Just practice OCing through the BIOS and you'll be ok. Might even want to Load Optimal Defaults in the BIOS after AOD is Uninstalled and start fresh there too.

Well, it's fine as JustAnotherStressTest that you can run your CPU though, and the diagram thing is nice. I wouldn't use it for overclocking though.

Much happier although soooo much more to twiddle with in the BIOS, But what I have found since just changing the mobo is HEAT!!

Even at idle, it now reports 40, where is with the MSI it was normally around 34, and at load even though I am stable at 4.5 I'm hitting
nearly 70 on the CPU and VCORE almost hit 80. I've added an extra 120mm fan to the side of my case to blow cool air towards the VRM's
and CPU which has helped a little.

Wondering if the MSI board was under reporting temp hence the stabilty issues?

Some reviewers have found that by using a multimeter , they have found the ASUS boards tend to underreport voltages. up to .1 volts on the cpu - per one reviewer. In addition, MSI's default voltages for cpu-nb and ht are much lower than on my CHV-z. You can knock a little v off of the cpu nb setting and drop a couple degrees off the cpu temp. on the ASUS.
Your findings are much like mine. The asus system runs much hotter.

I get higher clocks with better temps on the MSI rig than the ASUS.

are you using the AMd sata driver? if so rollback to msahci driver. Amd driver is known to have tons of errors with certain equipment. also look into your storage components and ram. it sounds to me like your fighting an uphill battle against unstable ram and or a faulty storage system.

I'll have to check that out. I'm not sure off the top of my head, I had a lot of issues with the sata ports with this motherboard. When I flashed the BIOS two days ago I couldn't get windows to recognize my RAID configuration. I had to revert to an older BIOS and then flash it back to the latest, after that they appeared. I'm not sure if it's the board or what, but anything related to SATA has been a royal pain with this one.

I disabled a few additional power saving features, and realized I was overclocking under the boost settings rather than the "cpu clock ratio". Since changing that, I'm getting my actual overclock reported in CPU-Z, and temps are displaying just fine.

I've heard this (about Asus boards actually feeding *higher* voltages through the vrm's to the various components) and some here have reported that too.. at least having heard about it.

Just how true is this and how impacting is it too? What does this mean in the real world and should there be anything I (or we - us Asus mobo users) do about this? a .1v increase can be quite a bit in many cases...I haven't been having any heating issues with my board(s) or vrm's ,so that is good but curious if there is anything I should do or watch to compensate for this?
Thanks to any and all that can help on this!

ahh, well that would explain a lot.

when a bios is updated the raid firmware can be updated aswell. When this happens a rebuild of the raid array (rebuild not format, delete the array and remake it) might be needed due to the new functions of the raid firmware.

if you can, I would suggest a array rebuild and reinstall. you might have a completely corrupt installation.

on top of that, get a boot able copy of memtest86+ and run that while you sleep for around 8:thumb:hrs... be sure your ram is a stable as can be... you don't want to chase your tail.
