AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE undervolt help

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
I know your all gonna say "oh this is in another post and stuff". I WELCOME those links. I have been trying to under-volt my CPU for the last few days due to temperatures with it.

I can lower the voltage correctly and easily with my MOBO and I am keeping the stock speed of 3.4ghz but I cannot get it to restart once I click the start menu > restart. Why? that is the only thing I can not get to do. It is stable in my tests, it does not crash when playing Skyrim or Battlefield 3, it boots every time and doesn't have any BSOD. I simply do not understand why restart isn't working.

Do I have to change something besides the CPU voltage (sorry if I'm incorrect, not inside the BIOS right now so terminology might be a little bit off >.<)

what motherboard are you using and also your cooling

while your at it is your cpu voltage set at offset or manual

Are you sure you are changing nothing but the cpu core voltage?

Also, what voltage do you have it currently set to?

If you bump it up just 1 can you restart?

How are you testing your stability?

Hopefully we here on OCN can get this sorted out for you =)

Motherboard - MSI 970A-G46 9 Series AM3+ Motherboard

Processor - AMD Phenom II X4 965

RAM - 8GB of AMD High Performance Edition

Graphics Card - NVIDIA Geforce GTX 650 1GB

Power Supply - Coolmax 600 Watt 140mm Fan ATX Power Supply

Cooling - I have 6 Cooler Master R4 Series Silent 120mm Red Case Fan and a THERMALTAKE A4022 TR2-R1 CPU FAN

Hard Drive - WD Caviar Blue 500GB SATA HD 7200/16MB/SATA-6G

My CPU voltage currently I believe is sent to 1.3750 which is what it was stock (cant be certain without going into the BIOS, I will post a picture of my BIOS after this). I am pretty sure this is manual? because the only other option is Auto which I know is 1.450 which is WAY to high.

I am using Prime95 for stability testing and also Battlefield 3 because I know you can use video games to insure stability to a point as well (aka no BSOD)..

Please do that would be absolutely great, and can you tell me this - does your desktop restart each time correctly? thank you ^_^

Sorry for the long wait I used my DSLR to take the photos and had to lower there size in Photoshop I did not want to have to upload 15mb photos tongue.gif





I use MSI smart fan becasue I am using the OEM cooler that was with the CPU and it sounds like a jet rolleyes.gif


I also use MSI Click Bios to enable AMD cool n quit

and I don't have any issues with shutting down or restarting I have had these settings for about 3 weeks now

Ok so here is my biggest question to you - In your last picture you have a CPU temp of 29 (inside MSI Click BIOS), Is that the true temperature of the computer? Because all of my values are the same as yours.
