Temp under load is the same for my main system, it settles at around 59c-61c. PWM fan take I little while to catch-up. Temperature is going to come down, and improve.
I read somewhere HT can go as high as 2000MHz, Let's see if that is true. I have seen HT over 1300MHz, but I can't remember where. ..My main computer HT operates the same as in (lower speed photo), Ultra stable.
Ram has been drop to 166MHz bus in the BIOS, it can't handle that kind of speed when set to 200MHz in the BIOS, but my main computer memory "4GB" in my main computer can.
I know where the problems are, but it's difficult to fix & a lot of work. I also had to enable the Southbridge fan during this test, normally this is off.
Three new updates were added yesterday.
Modified "cooler bracket holder" was tested for the first time, VRM Temp did improve.
Northbridge cooler was changed from Noctua to a direct touch heatpipe cooler.
CPU fan had changed from Zalman CNPS8900 (Hacked) back to modified CNPS8700.
Motherboard has new VRM & new Chokes, one of these has improved performance, the other is holding back performance. So it looks like some old components are going back, but new & other components will be changed, I have all the components here.
Remember: this is the same CPU I could not get 2.9GHz out of, look where it is now and this is not my best FX-60, that's yet to come..
The focus today, is to find a clever way to cool VRM & further motherboard components updates.
The two screenshots I drop the voltage in the BIOS, the higher speed was set to 1.55v and the other was set to 1.5v.
Its the "lower voltage" that improved here, the CPU has never operated at that speed with that voltage, so some modification(s) to the motherboard has changed that.
