I suggest downloading the motherboards overclocking software suite, that should provide more realistic temperatures. Tho 4.8 GHz on 1.375v is really good volts, anything under 1.5v should be safe. Tho I wouldn't go above 1.45v myself, that's just my comfort zone.
Yeah, read that a while ago. Been waiting for a decent m-itx that didn't have the a75.
Seems to be solid so far. Tried to push it to 5ghz, but crashes out 30 secs into windows. Now, that is keeping the voltages down as well. I'm gonna monkey a bit with some more volts just to see where it will go. I plan on F@H with this one as well so it will be on 24/7 and folding on both CPU and GPU.
As far as monitoring, I took your advice and installed the Asrock utility.
The temp reading on it are WAY different than the coretemp. Approximately 30-40c off! LOL. Just for kicks I installed SpeedFan and the reported temps are spot on with the Asrock readings. ATM, doing some stability testing with Prime95 and sad to say, not going very well. LOL 4.8ghz will run with no problems in benchmarks, F@H, gaming and anything else, but fails after 5 minutes in Prime. Looped Heaven Benchmark last night for about 2 hours, solid. Went to bed and let it Fold, got up this morning, solid. Been installing, uninstalling and just using the PC like I would in an everyday environment and no issues or crashing/lockups. I know some guys say "true" stability requires a good solid Prime95, but for me, not really sold on it. I don't really do anything that important on my PCs, so if I can use it with no apparent issues (or HEAT problems) its good for me. With that being said, I will still be tweaking and tuning to see where I can improve the Prime stability. I'll keep you guys updated.
