P5B in, first impresions - Page 8

post #71 of 95
K people, just search for the 965 chipset strap for the P5B Deluxe.

Basically, the P5B Deluxe using 965 chipset has a strap where 400FSB clocks higher than 401,402,403.

whoa thanks man, I was wondering about some stability issues I have been having, never heard about this fix!
400 x 9 or 460+ x 9

I reinstalled Windows for the P5B. I just ran 3dMark06. I didn't even let the benchmark finish as I was only getting 8FPS on the first test! The last time I ran it, I was easily getting over 30FPS at ALL times. This has worried me.

I am currently running at 400Mhz * 9 = 3.6Ghz (same as on my P5W). Even though my memory bandwidth is MUCH higher than my P5W (1200Mhz 4-4-4-8 compared to 800Mhz 3-3-3-6), my SuperPi score went down about .4s.... This also bothers me.

What setting do people run 24/7 for FSB Termination Voltage, NB Voltage, SB Voltage, and SATA/PCIe voltage?

To tell you the truth, I think I like my P5W better. Maybe it is just growing pains. Only time will tell.

Other Info:

Motherboard: P5B Deluxe
Revision: 1.3G
CPU FSB: 400Mhz (1600Mhz)
CPU Multiplier: 9
CPU Speed: 3600Mhz
Memory Speed: 600Mhz (1200Mhz)
Memory Timings: 4-4-4-8

CPU Voltage: 1.4625V
Memory Voltage: 2.35V
FSB Termination: 1.4V
NB Voltage: 1.6V
SATA / PCIe: 1.7V
SB: 1.2125


Just a Tip to all Dont do whats shown in the Picture...Its a lovely way to kill your motherboard, You want to put it on an Anti-static bag. Becareful Paul its not the best thing to do mate.

Sorry, Enterprise, a anti-static bag is one of the LAST places you should ever consider putting your motherboard or any other electronic component.

Computer components are safe on carpet, blankets and hard surfaces as long as they are not moving. These surfaces will only cause a problem if the board is moving around (creating friction, and thus a small static charge).

Do you know what a closed capacitor is? A closed capacitor keeps all electrical charge of the outside surface area. A anti-static bag is a closed capacitor. The electric charge (if any) will be residing on the outside of the anti-static bag, where you suggest I should put my motherboard!

Funny that you say this. Indeed the closed Capacitor Info is Indeed correct so Nice on for that. However The Countless times Ive heard of motherboards being layed out on such surfaces as a Carpet and stuff can indeed give a Nice dose of ESD. First hand experience with this also lol...Well whatever works for peple the best then stick too it.

LOL, I have always, without fail, put every motherboard I've owned on an anti-static bag while it's been out of my various cases. Everything from slot 1 to socket 775 and have never, ever, killed a board as a result. I had no idea that the outside of anti-static bags were dangerous for motherboards to be on! LOL, I must be really lucky to have avoided damaging any of the, maybe 25 or so motherboards I've put on the outside of anti-static bags over the years!

LOL, I've done the same with sound cards, video cards, internal modems, network cards, RAM, IDE controllers, etc, etc... All put on the top of anti-static bags, all undamaged. LOL, I've been putting my hardware (and other people's) at risk for years without knowing it! Arrhhh! It's almost miraculous that none of the hardware ever died as a result!

Just wondering; if you cut open an anti-static bag and put the motherboard etc on top of the inside parts of it, is that safe to do? Will that be good to protect a motherboard etc from static?

If you cut open the anti-static bag, it is no longer anti-static. This is because it is no longer a closed capacitor and thus the charge does not reside on the outside surface area.

It is my opinion that the dangers of static charge are severely over-exaggerated. While it is true that a large static charge can damage a computer component, I do not think small charges will do any noticeable damage to modern components.

@ Paul, if those HAX work, be prepared for a million rep. As this isnt stable at 3.6 orthos stable for the world. What exactly are the settings you are using right now that are 2 hours stable?

It was 12 hours stable, which was good enough for me.

I am doing some final tweaks to optimize timings / voltage / ect and I will take some pictures of my system settings shortly.

I will post the hotfix (Hax) on the download thread.
