new mobo asus m5a97 r2.0 bios help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
cpu 955be @ 3.8 ghz
mobo m5a97 r2.0
adata 16 gb ram 1600 mhz 11-11-11-30 2t at 1278 9-9-9-24 1t
gtx 650 ti
coolermaster gx 750 w pus
CM 912 HAF

cpu llc enable
cpu/nb llc auto


got it stable with manually setting vcore and cpu/nb voltages
now trying have it overclocked on auto voltage using offset voltage, so I have c n q c1e enabled
at auto vcore went to 1.46 volt set offset to - got it down to 1.392 volts @ load 1.404 volts.
problem is cpu/nb offset volts set nb frequency to 2353 mhz
auto volts cpu/cb to 1.250 volts, I run any up 2400 mhz at stock 1.10 volt.
I try use I set it to - should go down 0.00625 intervals, soon I do first 0.00625 hit f10 save n exit, go back into bios
cpu/nb @ 0.993 volt, lol that bit undervolt on cpu/nb, so it droping more than 0.00625

I wouldn't overclock with that PSU powering my system:

Performance (40% of the final score) - the Coolermaster GX-750 underwhelmed in just about every way possible. Regulation was only so-so, efficiency was remarkably lower than the 80 Plus test report would have us believe, and the 3.3V rail had more ripple than the last time I did a cannonball into a pool when I was still a three hundred plus pounder. To boot, the unit wouldn't even come close to full power at forty degrees before the overtemp protection came in and shut down the party. I dearly hope that Coolermaster's shipping retail units are better performing than my sample was, but since I couldn't get my hands on one of them I'll have to score this one as I see it. I have to do a 6 here I think.

Summary

 

Coolermaster has a decent 600 watt unit here. The unit does pretty well for stability and efficiency, doesn't get very loud, and... what? It's a 750 watt unit?

 

Facepalm.

 

Past Coolermaster units have done pretty well here in the lab, and I'm puzzled that this one has done so poorly. I hope that next time, if there is a next time, we'll have something worth getting excited about.

 

The Good:

  • appearance
  • enough cabling to handle anything a 750W unit can power
  • somewhat shallow depth

 

The Bad:

  • cannot handle heat at 750 watts
  • ripple issues on the 3.3V rail
  • questionable capacitor quality

 

The Mediocre:

  • voltage regulation
