Just curious. All of you flashing to the 803 bios, does it have the CPU and NB Clock skews that the 802 beta bios has?

edit: I just flashed to the 0803 and it does have the clock skews. So 0803 is just the formal release of 0802.

It only helps when trying to push the limits of the FSB. The known best settings I've seen (and tested myself) is:

CPU Clock Skew: 100ps
NB Clock Skew: Normal

or for really high FSB pushed to the max

CPU Clock Skew: 200ps
NB Clock Skew: 100ps

Hello people, just thought I'd put my in. System didn't seem stable with last 2 BIOS flashes - 0603 and 0701; esp the 0701. Problems reformatting, settings changing, freezing etc.
However, last night flashed the 0803 and I can't believe the difference. Played around a bit with stock gear since my Q9650 is taking too much time and don't want the Xiggy in until I install everything.
Anyway, I adjusted the clock skews as mentioned and it was awesome. Easily pushed the unit pretty hard and got a high clock speed for stock cooling - never mind; I'll post when I have something really worth showing.
Moreover, the PC doesn't boot, stop and reboot from cold anymore; it just boots and runs very smoothly.
Had flashed different versions of previous BIOS models to alleviate corruption, but no cigar.
Highly recommend the latest 0803 based on what I've seen

Edit: should have mentioned and don't know how much if any difference it made, but I concurrently updated the chipset driver to V9001011 when I flashed the latest BIOS...

Hi guys. Just popping in to say hi to the guys in my favourite oc thread, ever expanding as it is. Especially hi to you Spacegoast and Ericeod

Anyways, I saw there was a new stock bios update from 25/02-09. Any reason to upgrade except if you have the ATI4870X2? More stable voltages or anything?

Honestly my modestly oc'ed system works so good now that I dont think I'll mess any more about with it if the difference is marginal. I'm going to get an Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme GTX280 for my gpu later this week though, so that should be exciting. Finally I'm going to take you up your challenge Ericeod. Hope I dont break anything in the process. Wish me luck.

Ha ha, OC away my friend! Yeah the new 803 bios has CPU and NB clock skews which really help push the FSB (I should say "keep it stable"). I actually bought a Gigabyte UD3P to try to get more out of my Q9650. Then the beta 802 (which is now 803) bios was released, and the day the UD3P arrived, I flashed my Rampage Formula to the new bios. I was able to achieve a 490 FSB with the new bios, and at the same NB voltage I needed for 472 previously. So I gave the UD3P to a friend of mine who really needed it.

I recently flashed to 0803 BIOS and it has worked pretty well for me so far. I am able to run 392x9 at 1.39375v in BIOS and 1.38v according to HWMonitor. So I have been able to get it a little higher using less voltage. I am also considering getting that Accelero Xtreme GTX280. That thing looks pretty sweet. There is a review for it on TPU: LINK, seems like it would drop temps nicely, especially with summer coming up, for us anyway. GL with your challenge though

Thanks man. The first part of the challenge is waiting to see if the cooler fits in the first place. I didnt bother with taking out the gtx280 and dismount the cooler to see if the "height restriction drawing" fits, so if I have a different pcb than nvidias reference, I should be in big trouble. Judging from these shots though it sure looks like its reference: http://en.hardspell.com/doc/showcont.asp?news_id=3669. I got a REALLY bad scare just a few moments ago when the text "Gainward's non-reference GTX280" seemed to pop up everywhere I googled, but that seems like its a special version of the card. Phu.

Oh well. Worst case I finally get to reseat the stock cooler properly with some decent goop instead of the "chalkish bad excuse for a thermal pad" that these cards come with.

They sent the cooler today, so I should be on it in two days or so. I'll let you guys know how it fares.

Yay. Finally got the that Accelero Xtreme GTX280 mounted on my 280, with some fuzzing about. It seems like Arctic Cooling did a bad job making the glue for two of the ram heatsinks, resulting in the possibility of them falling off at any time. I made haste right after work today to get the last tubes of arctic silver thermal adhesive (proxy) and got them stuck on forever. The backplate also was a hassle, but I bent it a little and got it to fit better. The compund have fastened it now I think.

I'm now running at 702 core, 1512 shader and 2592 memory (1296). Seems to work fine so far. Getting a vantage score of p15401. Running furmark 1680x1050 msaa: x8 for 10-15 minutes take the core temp up to 57 in a relatively hot room. Vantage maxed out at 51. Suspect I got a bit too eager putting on arctic silver though. Oh well, at least it should last some time.

Spacegoast, if you dont have thermal adhesive, get it just in case if your getting the cooler. Those ram chips are slippery ones of some reason. I've cleaned them really proper, but they still dont stick well when using the horrible factory glue (which you must really work to get off btw) its just not reliable. The results though are magnificent. I think I'll stay at this oc if it turns out to be stable, as reading around tells me that I wont get much farther anyway. I could probably turn up the core a bit, but I just dont know if its worth it.

Have a nice day folks! Happy happy ._-

Edit: Had to retreat on the shaders, but raised the others. So now I am doing 729/1458/1332 instead. Quite satisfied with this oc

Yesterday was BIOS flashing day. Pulled the trigger on RF0803. Also flashed the 4870 with my own custom and ditched the ASUS TOP BIOS that I suspect was giving me driver problems, after multiple crashes trying the cat9.3s. Just got sick of running 8.09 and wanted to see if the 9.3 offered an improvement for FAH. Finally back up- 12 hours solid, if I can make it through the weekend without a hang or BSOD I'll call it good.

Also tired the CPU skew out- made me unstable at my current settings, although to be fair my current settings were stable before putting the ASUS TOP BIOS on my 4870. I'm gearing up for another push next weekend.....and shooting for 4GHz.
