Hey Zoro! It didn't really do anything for me, might help though, hard to say

Well it does say " improves overclocking"
I actually can not flash them it says my flash utility is out of date each time I try to flash for F9 even though I have F8 installed.
How are ya Cyro !? :-)

You can download a new version of @BIOS from the Asia download site and use it. You may also be able to re-download F9, apparently they updated the version of Efiflash included.

with the release of F9 i had another go at my OC.
i either did a terrible job the first time or F9 helped me.

ran aida for 10 minutes just to get a typical heat reading. at these temps my fans begin to ramp up and it stabilises.

That looks like a chip that'll do like 4.7@1.3 to me

have you tried testing with HT off? tried testing with x264 too?

I'm capable of stabilizing 47x on air below 1.4v (gamed on 1.37 for days, but it was never quite there and always a pain in the ass), and your chip looks a solid like 100-200mhz better than mine - seems worth experimenting a bit with ~46-48, even if it's just experimenting and with HT off if you have cooling difficulties

is aida64 a worthy stress test for haswell? I seem to get conflicting answers.. but prime95 and IBT push my overclock to 90c quite quickly..

It's worse than x264 IIRC

check out the haswell overclocking guide/thread with statistics (here on OCN.. tongue.gif) as it goes more in depth about various tests, heat and effectiveness and there is more discussion about it there

Now that a few here have updated their BIOS to F9, I'm interested to hear if or how it has made a difference from running F7 or F8. Does it make a significant difference in your OC or the ease of achieving that OC? How about ram? does it allow for tighter timings or greater speed at stock timings? What are the essential differences you've seen?

I have an above average chip that will easily hit 5.0ghz on a small but efficient custom loop so I am wondering if this bios will allow me to experiment with getting stable at 5.1-5.2 without having to resort to more extreme cooling.
