Here I was running at 1.314. Wouldn't run past that on a 24/7.

It's all good till 1.41v.... not recommended for something like folding..

but for normal use, realize, that for the majority of your cpu's lifespan, it will idle at 0.8v thumb.gif

Pishhh, disable those power saving features! ;D

Even with 1.6V I can't get mine to die.
Tried some XTU benches causing temps up to 100 and eventually system shutdown.
She still goes and still stable =)

And after all that torture I tried 5Ghz @ 1.525 / 1.55V yesterday with Windows XP and for the first time it booted without BSOD into Windows!

Intel chips are hard to destroy.

Don't try the same with AMD tho, might put on a helmet before you start!

There's no reason to disable speedstep... I turn off all the Cstates including C1e/c3/c6...

Speed step works just fine, with almost no gap in speed ramping.

It's just as you've mentioned! As soon as I turned on ThrottleStop and disabled BD PROCHOT, my multiplier got unlocked and finally started running at normal core speed while running Prime95!

Does this mean I should RMA the current mobo and ask for a replacement since it confirms that there is a faulty sensor?

Thanks again, man! thumb.gif

Glad you got it working! I would RMA that board if you can.

It is usually a bad sensor on the motherboard that causes this problem. BD PROCHOT is not well understood so if you RMA it, the tech might see that it boots up and think it is fine. If you can get a replacement without a big hassle, go for it. If not, you can live with this problem by disabling BD PROCHOT. ThrottleStop has a feature so the program will exit 5 seconds after it starts. This lets you use the program to set up your CPU and then it will automatically exit. Just add this to the ThrottleStop.INI configuration file.

ExitTime=5

and you can add ThrottleStop to your startup sequence using the Task Scheduler. You might need to run ThrottleStop again after you use Hibernate or Stand By mode.

Glad this worked for you. Now you can get back to overclocking.

Thanks for helping cynesper! thumb.gif
I wouldn't of known that was the problem.

I think the max I would go for 24/7 would be 1.35-1.37v, and that would likely be if I really wanted those extra megahertz.

I also don't turn the power saving features off, they don't bother me so I just leave them on.

I did a quick overclock and I'm at 4.4GHz at 1.35v, It's running a little hot at 76C but I can't even hear my cpu fan.

I've settled for the EVGA z97 Stinger MOBO

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188158&cm_re=z97_itx-_-13-188-158-_-Product

but I saw the Asrock z97E-ITX

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157504&cm_re=z97_itx-_-13-157-504-_-Product

It is less and has more features than the EVGA.

Anyone tried the Asrock?

Need to buy the mobo before the 11th.

Making a hard decision for me.

you should ask in the motherboard forum they experts there tongue.gif
