Mine is a CCBWE, what stepping is yours?
EDIT: 61-62c is pretty high especially if you have the 110watt version, and it sounds like you have a decent cooler on there so I would say you definitely need to check your voltage on a meter. I was only hitting like 52-53c with only a AC freezer64pro on it.
OK you expert mobo voltage checker you, not every one wants their mobo to catch fire. I couldn't resist.

I must admit that was pretty funny

But I really have learned a lot while destroying my Opty and Neo2.

Hopefully your new mobo has no defects and works like a charm. This time overclock till you can't push it any more then check your PSU voltage while stressing you system. You will obtain most stable clocks w/a PSU that is rock solid.

Good Luck

Mastiffman, that voltage is quite high for being on air. I would not recommend exceeding 1.55 volts. If you have some form of exotic cooling then it should permit you to run higher voltages.

To adjust the CPU voltage go to Advanced -> JumperFree Configuration. Go to FID/VID Change. Change that from "Auto" to "Manual". Below that you should see "Processor Voltage" appear. I hope that is what you were referring to

Good luck

lets hope for the best....I tested my xclio x14 s4p4 600w PSU yesterday while running prime95 on a 3500+, as you probably already know, and I didn't see anything to worry me. Every voltage was steady with no fluctuation, and well within allowable tolerances. None were below what they are supposed to be...all the 3.3's were 3.3, the 5's were 5.14, and the 12's were 12.00(the -12 the blue one was -11.96). Looks good to me. I thought I had chosen a decent reliable PSU when I bought that.seems I was right. Newegg even still sells it.....only like $10 less than I paid 2 years ago. This one here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817189007 what do you think?

I know HOW TO adjust the voltages! LOL

how else would I have gotten it to 1.6v LOL

Okay, I turned lowered the vcore voltage to 1.365+ the Overvlot which sets it to 1.565 in BIOS and 1.552 in CPU-Z.

It did it again though. It ran for 1hr 21min the first time and then I ran it again and it ran only 1hr 20mins.

I guess that I don't understand why it keeps doing this. Even if I run only 1 instance of prime95 Small FFT's it will fail. But if I run 2 instances then the 1st core (core 0 of 0 & 1) is the only one to fail or at least faails first but normally the 2nd core (Core1) will run forever...

Any ideas?

The 770T-UD3P does not have VRM cooling. But you can get a heatsink designed for that board from Enzotech, or you can skank one off of another Gigabyte.

Enzotech also offers a waterblock.

An odd feature (and probably an after thought from Gigabyte to cut costs) is that the board features perfectly laid out VRMs, and the mounting holes for a heatsink.

That's just the first think (IE: I went to bookmarks, and Crazy PC is first in the list from my Tech Shops folder) so you'd just have to shop around.

Newegg used to have some, I know FrozenCPU, Performance PC's, Petra's, and Jab-Tech have all had some in the past.

Try a little less of an overclock and see if it runs prime. Believe me I know you don't want to do that, but 2.625GHz could be over the limit for that cpu. Was it stable at these settings before just recently? I had mine stable @ 2.7, but not 2.75. Just out of curiosity what is the stepping of the cpu?

Please include cpu-z screen shots of your most recent stable overclock. Include the cpu and memory tab if you can. Perhaps a setting or two just needs adjustments.

I have feeling you're trying to push this processor beyond it's limits. Heat could be one of the factors (hence the higher cpu voltages).

Good luck

Hey it's all good ThInk3r! No worries...

I used to have it on Water and when I moved to AM3 I popped that TT Big Typphon on it and kind of ignored it. I may have overworked the IMC on it with some Mushkin XP 4000 that I ran upto 285Mhz (550Mhz) @ CL3 @ 3.05v LOL.

So I was just wondering if any you Vets had any idea's.

I'm right 1000Mhz on the HTLink and even knocked down my Ram a fe days ago to less than 200mhz. to see if maybe that was it. But the temps just keep jumping up to 58-60*C.
It's Rock solid and moves nice @ 2.55ghz with ram @ 255Mhz CL3-3-3-8. I just wanted to see if I could move up a bit. I may just put it back to that. It seemed to be more stable once I lowered the Ram though.

My main question is this:

Why would a Core fail sooner and sooner in Prime95? Almost like it's getting less and less stable? Do you guys have any idea about that?
