What do you mean when you say "a message pops up stating it's not a proper bios"? If you're talking about the "Evaluation Version" popup text when you have logo off and fast boot off, that was on the bios my board CAME with, so that's not an issue. It just shows how fast AMD pushed the board makers to put these out, they're still essentially beta.
Furmark is a nasty evil power virus, so...it certainly could depending on the card, even with ventilation, what card is it?
Thanks. Did a real quick OC following your post and works like a charm. Well done! +1
Cool Thanks... So I'm currently running 4.0GHz, 3466c14 130 bclk on the ram (it is in the txt file I posted) and when I tested it vs 3200c14 it did not perform better (aid memory bandwidth test and via latency metrics). Been up to 3600c15 but that has yet to pass GSAT.
It's a fun little 6 core!
You have a 1600 or 1600x? I love my 1600 so far.
4.0 has (so far) been up at 1.425-1.435V. Looks to be approx 10mV per core (as usual ). Until I put it under water 4.025 has been my ceiling.
bclk divider allows you to affect, or not, the peg/dmi (or what ever it is called on this platform) separately from the cpu clock. Like Strap on other platforms.
Youch. JPM that's really pushing the limits on voltage as per AMD, as in 1.425 is it, and if it's spiking above that....be careful. Buildzoid said in a video he'd bad a friend of his who'd been running his 1800 at 1.5v solid since he got it have the chip having noticeably degraded, and he'd run it that way perhaps 300 hours, so 1.5 definitely does some life shortening, and you're edging close to it. It's your chip though, so as long as you know and accept the risk...
