I understand that, but for me its a real good step in the right direction, without just looking around in the Dark!!! I can now build on what this has shown me, the only thing i can not find Doug is the

BCLK SKEW on this motherboard, it must be some where else????


Regards,


AJ.

That explain things. Do you know the reason why they doesn't allow regular VRM setting on 140? Shouldn't be extreme setting forced from 160 higher?
I touched heatsink and this board seems to love regular setting.

Sometimes I think they are using AUTO instead of "use last used number".

That's quite scary, on the other hand this board tends to set VCCSA relatively low, which might compensate the extreme setting.

Is there any harm from using VCCSA 0.936 and VTT 1.05? (Defaults on my board.)

It's just under "extreme OV". It's in the same tab where you adjust CPU voltages, and BLCK.

Keep in mind, this is ASUS. They sell VGA cards with built-in mod points, then lock the BIOS so you can't use them effectively without flashing the BIOS (MATRIX 7970), or they sell cards that offer no voltage adjustment with mod points(DIRECT CUII 7970).


So, the hardware and options are there, if you know the tricks. If you don't, you're not likely to break anything. And if you do break something, it's clearly your own fault (in ASUS' eyes. Anyone that's gone through RMA understands).

He's right. Even if it shuts down, you simply hold the button down until it stops the boot loop, or you hold down CMOS Clear on back panel. It can reboot 5 times in that 5 seconds, board doesn't shut down on boot loops for LN2 use, so to stop the loop you hold the power button ON THE BOARD ITSELF.

Power button on OC panel and front panel doesn't work the same, unfortunately.

At times I think bits of LN2 Mode stay on always. tongue.gif
Clear CMOS, boot into BIOS. value given in BIOS monitoring panel is just a bit higher than stock value, since board sets "EXTREME" loadline calibration by default. You can try adjusting loadline values to compensate.

And yeah, AUTO settings adjust VCCSA automatically. It's "AUTO", man!

Well I officially blew out my drivers had to go into safe mode and reload. I think I have a crap chip at this point. I went to 1.5v and still couldn't boot @ 4.8ghz

Back to stock everything settings for the meantime. Not sure what to do next.

I really think you don't have RIVBE, so I have no idea what's safe for your board. tongue.gif VCCSA is set according to CPU value, or by user-adjusted settings; it's not low at all.

System seems a bit more stable on stock speeds oddly. As well as more fluid. Game has taken no notice of it either. Very curious if I really just have a weak/bad chip.

It could well be degradation - the issue with running heavy loads on CPUs for hours on end with programs like handbrake, Prime, 3DS Max etc is that when we are overclocked with a voltage increase, we are pulling up to 2X more current through the CPU than it was designed to comfortably handle.

No sound!
Without reading through over 5,800 posts here, have there been reports of the sound not working on this motherboard?
I installed the Creative package that came on the install disk, uninstalled and reinstalled it, updated it, etc., and have yet to get a peep out of this board.
Everything is plugged in right, the audio panel in Windows shows music is playing.
I've never had a problem with any other build as far as sound goes, it's just this RIVE-BE.
My speakers and headphones work on my other computers.
There just is no joy coming from either the back or front panel of this board.
Any ideas as to where I may have screwed up would be appreciated.
I've never heard of a Black board that won't respond to Rob Zombie or Black Sabbath (welcome back Ozzy! It's been way, WAY too long!).


(FIXED! Went to Realtek and downloaded their latest drivers. Fired right up.) band.gif

glad I don't run those programs and thats pretty crappy degradation for just a couple weeks of being on 4.5 lol... only a couple hours a day at most.


blah the luck

Thanks found that but, there is 3 settings in that section and i am not 100% sure which one it is!!!! Can anyone help me out here??

According to 8PACKS OVERCLOCKING GUIDE it helps with stability with the CPU ETC!!

A setting of -1 or -10 or -20 helps overall, that is NEGATIVE VALUES!!!

I used his settings last night and it seems to me my Black Edition works better now than before, the one point he said, was VCCSA is the IMC VOLTS!!

This should be below 1.2 volts and VCCSA and VTT should be no more than 0.05 Volts of each other.

The other point is VTT should be set @ 1.15 volts and the second VTTCPU should be within 0.4 volts of the VTT!!

I tried and tested these out last night and can confirm they work for me and my Black Edition here, it made my Overclock more stable, this is the Guy in UK with loads of WORLD RECORDS!!

1, http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18476907

So i would honestly say he knows a thing or two!

Respectfully,

AJ.
