Ny_driver, I would trust what your multimeter is displaying. The software monitoring that is through the operating system is probably not 100% accurate. It's not a surprise though that your voltage is fluctuating. I had similar issues on my old Asus A8N-SLI board.

Good luck

In case you missed the fire story....on Christmas eve I was sticking the multimeter in there to test the cpu voltage on the mosfets and I think I must have caused a short somehow because the system shut down. I fired it right back up and then immediately saw sparks followed by a tiny flame which I mushed out with the tip of my finger. Anyways after the fire and after turning the computer back on and seeing that it was working without catching on fire...I tested the cpu voltage on the each mosfet and I noticed that the one closest to the fire was reading .10 lower than the other two. Now lately I have been noticing that according to HWMonitor, CPUZ, etc.. it appears that my voltage fluctuates approx. .20. for example right now according to those programs it's at 1.47 roughly and last night it was at 1.49 roughly as I didn't test with meter. I will right now 1 sec....I get 1.50 on the meter and 1.48 in windows. Maybe there is a problem with the voltage being properly regulated. I'd like to get another Neo2 Platinum cheap, or maybe something 939 and PCI-E that overclocks well with a good video card and cheap.

Oh yeah the picture of what caught on fire(not my mobo in this picture) same one just not mine..... http://img709.imageshack.us/img709/2761/firedamage.png it looks like it's still intact, but I don't really even know what it is.

re-EDIT: cache 1 passed now. cache 2 failed(47c max)??................... primes torture test only made it 12 minutes this time. (fatal rounding error) I don't know what is going on, I'm telling you I ran the torture test for 45 minutes yesterday. maybe my 3700+ has just had enough overclocking...I got it used almost 3 years ago from a guy here named GeekMan that OC'd it.
Like thlnk3r said, trust the voltmeter. Software readings are definitely way off, I too used a voltmeter to verify that when my DFI board said that my new PC power & cooling PSU was only pumping out 11.71v on the +12v. In actuality, it was putting out 12.30v. And I also learned the hard way to be very careful as I accidentally bridged 2 connections.

As for your L2 cache failure, was that temperature reading using coretemp or some other software?
Reason I ask is because last night as I was testing my Opty, speedfan/smart guardian (DFI proprietary monitoring software) only showed 43/44C when in actuality, according to coretemp, I was hitting 60/61C. So depending on how far off the readings are, you could have very well exceeded 65C.

I use Core temp for everything but the 3700+ because it's core temp sensor is way off...it reads 10C lower than the cpu sensor. So I use HWMonitor and nextsensor. right now coretemp says 20-22c which is the same as the ambient temp. CPU temp is 32 right now, which seems about right for the core. It only was hitting high 40s while testing. I do have a lot better than average airflow in my case. I just took some new pictures to show you and imageshack isn't working right now. Sorry. I'll add them later. Anyways I have the ACfreezer, and they layed this board out so it has to point up and the fan barely fits in between my x1950 and the HS, but I have a 120mm fan on the bottom of the side blowing hard into the cpu cooler and x1950. I also have 2 80mm heavy duty A/C exhaust fans in the top right behind the PSU, and 2 80mm intakes in the back and 1 in the front, and 1 old amd cpu fan blowing directly on my ram. There is a lot of air moving in there is my point. Now that I explained what I have for fans I discovered that I can just attach pictures...lol....I figured they'd be too big. Now you'll know just what your looking at.

EDIT: I'm getting another Neo2 from a guy over at TPU, in case that fire actually did mess something important up.

That thing has got to be pretty loud with all those fans going. I know my rig with 3 GPUs' and 4 120mm fans, my rig sounsd crazy when I fire it up. A cross between a jet and a vacuum cleaner.

As for your coretemp issue, are you using the right one? There are 32 and 64 bit versions. Also, I was looking for the feature that logs the max temp and I found the "Temperature offset" box. From what little I know about it, adjusting it changes how coretemp reads the temps. You might want to try messing around with that.

PS: Ever consider painting your case?

Redhat, AWESOME! That is sweet

Those San Diegos were always beasts. Do you want me to update the roster with your new overclock or shall I wait until your stable?

that is stable
i dont post unstables
that cpu and board used to do 3.3ghz but i forgot at what voltage
i have a 3.2ghz validation somewhere my brother did i will find it

edit: found http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=224942
its LCBBE
im pretty sure the 3.04 on the 4000 is the highest on the list also im good at this lol

Yeah, you can hear it...I like the soundI'll look into the temp offset in core temp, one question though...This is a 64bit mobo, but I'm running a 32bit OS so which core temp do I need? I have the 32 bit one now.

I actually have never even considered painting the case until you mentioned it. .........I'd have to take it all apart and do some sanding, but I do have some black spray paint. Maybe I'll do that one of these days...it would probably look a little better.

I think my 4400+ Toledo is going to be here today. Happy New Year
EDIT: yup it's at the PO, gtg pick it up. whooohoooo!

Ny_driver, if you're running a 32-bit operating system then the 32-bit version of Core Temp will suffice.

Hope that helps
