Well your PSU is definitely holding you back. I doubt anything is damaged. The thing about having your case open is that the air does not have a path to travel It can go where ever it wants. Now when you have the fan on everything is getting cooled. I know my 5000+ can pull almost 125w by itself when Highly OC'd so you have to figure you GPU is prob pulling about 50w the HD is pulling ~12w(i think) MB is probably pulling 100w. I would recommend getting a good PSU a cheap one can cause instability and give you BSOD's. You might take a look at the Corsair 650TX as they are a great PSU.

Ultra, so sorry to hear that. Would you like me to put you in a different category of members now?

Super and Eclipse, I would be more then happy to put up a known CPU compatibility list but I don't know all the CPU's that are compatible. If some one want's to go thru the thread and point out cpu's w/post numbers then I can put all the cpu's on the list w/a post link for proof.

B'Fish, I'm wondering if you need to make bios adjustments to get it back to your previouse overclockable state. This is why I like to use the save bios to this bank tool from with in the bios. It makes reseting your bios a snap and you can go right back to your last bios settings after clearing the cmos just by selecting load bios from this bank or what ever it's called. Sorry I have a few DFI mobo's and they do the same thing. I think DFI is the originator of such bios tool and Asus and other enthusiast mobo makers followed the trend.

Never the less you can't go wrong w/saving your bios settings, especially if your gonna be trying new settings for overclocking. Infact you can set up the bios for a total stock spd to save on electricity and hardware life and then just boot to the overclocked settings by the push of a button during boot up.


Regarding your not being able to boot into windows now with your voltage at 1.34v. Is that a bios 1.34v or is that a OS 1.34v? Your board prolly like the rest of them overvolts a bit from bios to OS close to .12 volts.

Good Luck,

Yes those 1.34volts are OS volts and in bios these are 1.3v. Even a slight overclock of 200-300mhz to 2.8-2.9ghz alrdy fails i indeed saved 1 overclock profile i will test that later but i thought that if i cleared cmos those profiles were lost to.

I find this very strange :<

Hey N2 and Eclipse,

I just thought it would be handy in case someone wants to try and upgrade the system to the max.

I think we have a large group of enthousiasts trying all kind of combinations and we can put together a list from what we know. It will not have any kind of real status, but it will give some help.

Maybe we can make a list with the phenom II and athlon II CPU numbers and report how many times the have been reported as tried and how many times they worked by members from our thread. with a link to the post as proof.

We can indicate CPU's claimed to work by three individuals as working, two as probably working and one as possible. Same for failures. one failure possible not working, two failures probably not working, three failures definitely not working. In case of some failures and some working we can substract the numbers. giving an outcome.

We can ask our members to help put the list together and it will grow overtime. (and Eclipse has offered to dig into the old posts ).

I think this may work.

Whe you save a bios profile it is written to the bios. Clearing cmos really just puts everything back to default, so really they should not call it clearing, but it's just one of those things.

I think you can save the OC profiles somewhere else as well.
