OK I stole a HDD from one of my other systems that still has a couple of weeks left before I have to validate or re load. So I am on w/some CPUZ validation screens. I also am noticing my HT link is stuck at 220 matching my FSB as if my HT link is only multiplied by 1. I set my NB to NCP55 from 5x to 4x or what ever it is named in the bios and I still get a HT link of 220. Hmm. I'm starting to wonder if ASUS has written bios code to prevent the HT link from being overclocked as to prevent RMA's???

Ok got the CPU list edited. What do you guys think?

and thanks N2G I have wanted to help this thread out for a while for all the great help I have gotten here.

how do you ost on that link?
this is mine with coolnquiet turned off. played cod4 for a while and it went up to 56c

Hey Eclipseaudio4, That list looks awesome! Maybe you can squeeze the link to ASUS CPU listings in there as well, no need to add those CPU's to our list, but just to be complete.

N2, I know what you must feel like, two months ago my winXP just crashed on me and I reinstalled it. Stupid revalidation however stoped me, so now I´m testing win7 for as long as it lasts.

I have reassembled my pc tonight to get the airflow more to my liking. Added some new cooling paste to the CPU and I think I dropped temps with a couple of degrees. So I'm very pleased with myself at the moment.

N2Gaming, does resetting to factory defaults still show 220HT? Is this a new bios that you flashed to?

Nalo_b, I believe only the owner (poster) can modify/add to that post.

Actuality, You can try the lowest voltage on the chipsets and if you run into stabilty issues then try to bump it up a bit. The lowest setting is 1.2v.

Hope this helps.
Hi N2Gaming (& ultrasbm),

Thanks for the welcome the last go-round and your interest. I validated my setup with CPU-Z this afternoon and you can access it at the following URL:

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=652870


As stated earlier, I used the NVIDIA Sys Tool Ver 6.05's “Performance Tool†to manually adjust each core's multiplier. However, there is a “Catch-22†in that you must set the CPU multiplier level in the BIOS first (e.g., 16x, 16.5x, 18x, etc) in order to have those levels available in the Performance Tool's corresponding multiplier settings for each core. Otherwise, the Performance Tool will default to a multiplier setting of 4x/800MHZ---the same defaults we see in CPU-Z. Once this is done, each core will reflect the correct speed.
Obviously my overclocking is not optimized as I only use a FSB of 200MHZ. I also upped the CPU voltage to 1.3v for the validation. The increased voltage increases temps which are a slight concern since I am using the stock cooler. With multiplier, FSB and not CPU voltage increase, I think the processor & mobo run at speed under load even though it appears to be in the default 4x/800MHZ setting. With that said, I suspect there still might be a slight power issue with the AM3 processor.
Enough ramblings, the following are jpegs of recent tinkerings:

Sorry to hear that and I'm glad you got your airflow cooling more efficiantly.

I'm on BIOS 2205 and ASUS flashed it for me

IDK if running my HT spd at 200 will make any difference. I thought about trying that earlier today but was feeling a little under the weather. Is it hot in here or is it just me? I think I tied on one to many last night.

N2Gaming, reset the BIOS to the factory defaults and see if you can change the Hypertransport speed after that. Maybe there was an option or something you missed that is locking it at that speed. That is quite strange
