AtiViVo, congrats on the upgrade. The 720BE should show a noticeable improvement over your previous processor (3500+). Let us know when you decide to start overclocking. Hopefully we can point you in the right direction.

In regards to joining the club I believe N2Gaming would be able to assist you with that

Good luck

Hi all again
about a week ago I wrote a post to ask advice on how improve my pc performance.
As you can see I upgraded the ram with ocz 1066 and also the videocard and psu, as well as bios. The cpu is the same for now, but will upgrade when i can financially.

Ev'thing went fine at default (the bios 2205 gives no choice of 1066mhzh ram but at auto runs it at 800). I read Durch guide and other info and had to put ev'thing back in bios to default (i got lost and confused.....)

I run cpu-z and attached the snapshots....as I said ev'thing is default now, can somebody help with easy advice on what to change?

Also everest shows 40 c idle for cpu and about 49-50 when I play game or run videos . necessary for a fan if overclocking?

I also need some OC help haha.

I've OC'd my 5400+ with a clock of 215 and multi of 14 with 1.325v and it's stable. As soon as I up the clock to 220 it becomes unstable. What can I do to keep it stable? For some reason the highest the multi and voltage will go is what it is at. Do I need to change something in BIOS or is it a motherboard maximum?

What do you guys recommend?

Thanks alot.

Also, here is a CPU-Z screenshot:

Well If you cant get the vcore any higher then that's the max but my MB will put out 1.7vcore so I doubt that you cant go any higher than 1.325. Do you have C&Q disabled?

Hello again!

I need some help, folks - I installed the new CPU, RAM and audio (some problems taking out the old parts, but everything is OK). Booted and an error came up - "CMOS Error - Default settings loaded" (I did clear the CMOS before installing the PII). I tried to enter BIOS, but I couldn't, so I pressed F1 and entered Windows Xp. I restarted, no problems.
Here's a screenshot from CPU-z:
http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g161/Vruk/Cpu-z.jpg

Problem is, I can't enter BIOS.. well, I can, but the keyboard doesn't work and I can't change anything. BIOS v2205, identifies the CPU and RAM (4096 mg DDRII) but... nada! I tried pressing all the buttons and only the TAB key works... the startup also seems a bit sluggish, but no problems at all (I haven't tested a real application yet).
Advice? What's wrong, I mean XP boots, I have a working keyboard, the BIOS flashed fine and worked yesterday with my 3500+ and it does identify the x3 720BE.
:/

EDIT: BTW I installed the RAM in the black slots, A2/B2. Some folks on ASUS's forums suggested that way they work better. Possible cause of sluggish/non-responsive BIOS?

EDIT2: Wierd(-er), after a few restarts I managed to get in BIOS and the NumpadArrow keys work (only when NumLock is OFF), Enter and Exit also, but no other keys. I left most settings at AUTO. Windows also recognizes three cores (in the Windows Task Manager), but I still think the systems works sluggish. CoreTemp shows an idle of 33-35C but only registers two (2?!) cores.

OK, I'm absolutely puzzled!

For the lack of the other cores:

Go into device manager.
Uninstall your processor drivers.
Reboot.

If windows recognizes the 3 cores, you should be fine, though.

Try running with just one stick of RAM.
Also, use CPU-Z to know exactly what is running and at what speeds/settings.

RAM works at 5-5-5-18 /2T timings , Unganged (Win64 recognizes all 4gb), NB frequency at 1067mhz , DRAM at 401mhz.

CPU 2.8ghz 14x200mhz multiplier/bus speed (I think?) at default 1.36v (CoreTemp reads it as 1.32v). HyperTransport ~1005mhz (that's the maximum for the M2N32-SLI, right?). Right now testing the new audio card, 5.1 suround player and several background programs running, CPU temp ~37 to 39C. System is stable... heh, I sound like a Borg!.

By the way, Device Manager lists the x3 720BE as "three CPU's". Is that correct?

I'll try the 1 stick of RAM tomorrow - it's already evening here and I have awfull room lighting, and I'd hate to use a flashlight.

Any reccomended (free) overall system test program? 3d Mark?

Are you using a usb keyboard. If you are do you have a PS2 keyboard that you can try when working in the bios. My last thought is to try another known good keyboard for entering and making changes is the bios.
