Is the "overvolt" option the same setting that causes issues on Joe's Asus board?

Good luck
The "overvolt" option I am referring to is as follows:

Overvolt CPU - Disabled (has always been disabled)
Overvolt NB - Enabled
Overvolt SB - Enabled
Overvolt HT - Enabled

The once that I have listed as Enabled, are the ones that I just set to disabled. And for the record, its been 45 minutes now. Still going strong. I know, I know...its not "stable" yet. But I'm getting there. Just being "Windows stable" is a bigger accomplishment than you might think right now, as it was locking up in under 2 minutes before.

Alrighty guys, the overvolt options seem to have been the problem! Thank you to everyone that provided input.

Now..onto other business....
Who wants to trade me Opterons? Don't worry, this chip is used, not abused. Its ran at 1.60v VERY shortly for the suicide run in my sig...other than that, it has lived at 2.8GHz, 1.22v...and 3.0GHz, 1.39v its whole life.

What I'm after....
A 10x multiplier or 12x multiplier Opteron that does at least 3.0GHz with 1.41v or less. If anybody decides that I've put this in the wrong place, please just let me know. I'd be more than happy to setup a wanted thread on the marketplace. But I figured this would be the best spot for it .

EDIT:
I'd also like to mention, I'm after a FUNCTIONAL chip, to replace my FUNCTIONAL chip . No Blitz, I don't want to trade your dead Toledo for my functional Opteron, lol.

How is it that you can change your cpu voltage with this disabled? Ive never been able to. Even if I crank the vcore up its always higher or lower than what I set it, even at idle. (sorry Im bringin this crap up again)
When you manually set your vcore to lets say 1.42v does it actually go there?
Right now I have it enabled and set my vcore to 1.15v, enabled the overvolt and it sits where its supposed to be, well relatively close anyway. 1.36v @ idle and 1.34v @ 100% load, with the occaisonal spike to 1.38v.

On the A8N32-SLI Deluxe, you can select the CPU Voltage setting without enabling CPU Overvolt. What CPU Overvolt actually does is add .2V to the setting you select.

For example, let's say you need 1.35V. You have two ways to do this. The more stable way that I've found for this board is to simply select 1.35V from the list of VCore settings in the BIOS, with CPU Overvolt DISABLED. The other way (which has always been unstable for me, in both A8N32-SLI Deluxes I've owned) is to set the VCore to 1.15V, then Enable CPU Overvolt.

The voltage regulation on this motherboard is, in my opinion, is its weakest part of its feature set. DFIs have always been far superior when it comes to this. I don't quite know if it's a problem with the BIOS controlling the hardware, or if it's a consequence of inferior components (compared to the DFI LANParty UT motherboards).

EDIT: In retrospect, BlackOmega, it seems that you already know this.

joe: Even the Infinitys had suberb voltage regulaton. I adored mine. Even with two major capacitors missing, it was stable enough to use without crashing.

Sweet.

I was always curious about those Infinity series DFIs, but never pulled the trigger on one.

Strangely enough, I never seem to see an Infinity series S939 board on eBay at all, but there are always several LANParty UT series boards...

Hmmm.... Im still wondering if I should RMA this board. It just flat out will NOT set to what I set it to(with overvolt disabled). It always just reverts back to the erroneous 1.39v. Maybe thats why I cant get a good stable OC.

Makes ya wonder, doesn't it...Iono, mine quite nicely immitated the L4D Tank. Tough, damn near impossible to kill and always able to do what I asked of it.


I bought mine a year or two ago on eBay, for about 80 bucks. It was ALWAYS rock solid, wheras both of my friends with Lanparty UT's had constant BIOS issues and random finickeyness. Certain ramsticks wouldn't work in theirs, mine used those sticks just fine, and I'm sure you know about the PSU things. My Infinity never did that.


I did do one mod tho: I used the chipset cooler from a LanParty UT on mine.


I could still get decent OC's with one major cap missing...but when the second somehow got pulled off, it couldn't OC...but it ran fine at stock, so I kept using it.

Prolly law of averages related to supply and demand... I don't think as many infinities were sold as the experts... Of course we all know that if you purchased a expert new you were most likely going to be pushing it and you definately knew what you were doing when you bought it.

Hmm... don't know about this specific point. A lower-priced product being outsold by an enthusiast-class product? I don't think this ever happens for any product type.
