AtiViVo, honestly I think the only thing you need to worry about is the lifespan of the capacitors and how much heat your board is exposed to. Since the board is from 2006 I really don't think you need to worry about any capacitors bulging/leaking...at least not yet. I've had boards running longer then that and all the caps were perfectly fine. The quality of the capacitors also determines a lot. Try to avoid exposing your board to large amounts of heat 24/7. I'm talking like stress testing with a room ambient temperature of 30C+. Other then that I think your fine.

Good luck

he he.. my board dont have the time to heat up..lol.. i have 2x 120mm fans in the front of my case, 1x 80mm in back, 120mm in the psu and opened all my pci slots to allow air through.. if i crank them up they are way loud. i have thought about replacing the caps with a little higher rated one's so i don't have to worry about over stressing them. maybe increase the uf as well, to give a hair more juice.

I believe it is your CPU-Z Validation. I just linked your Validation as Rejected for the whole worls to see. You could easily set up a Yahoo email account. My Yahoo email works just fine for CPU-Z Validations. You can set one up at www.MyYahoo.com

Good Luck,

@th|nk3r: Not sure what do you mean by "re-imaging". I use the program to manage my partitions. (well not anymore).


@ AtiViVo:

Go for it. Install 7. There aren't as many compatibility issues as one might think. Virtually all drivers and apps that work under Vista work under 7 as well.
There are many new shortcuts that increase productivity, most features have been improved (Wordpad can even open .docx files!) and lots of them are new. Graphics are nice and the OS is streamlined (compared to Vista).
Whether you use it for work or just playing games/surfing the internet it doesn't matter. It's probably the best OS Microsoft ever made.
Once you'll try it out you won't go back

Giecsar, I wasn't sure if you used Acronis to make an image of your last install. It's shame that it caused some issues with your machine. That application is quite useful sometimes.

Glad everything is working out for you now!

Good luck

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:

The attachments are: Default CPU-Z Image; Overclock CPU-Z; Part 2 CPU-Z Validation; NVIDIA Tool; and Part ! Validation

I did all that in windows xp sp 3 and it worked liek a charm..now in windows 7 x64 i dont get the core multiplier box under the HT bus ..is there something i need to do did i miss a step..7 sees the cpu at 3.62 but when i go to cpuz it shows that all teh cores are running at x4 and at 800hz..any help at this point would be apprieciated

First step or advice is to go to the first page of this thread and read all five paragraphs of introduction to the club. In the last/5th paragraph you will see a link that says System Information. Click on that link and add your system info so we can all see what we are working with.

well you have a 95w cpu, sounds like stock cpu cooler. if your temps are running idle at 35 and load at 60, i would recommend a better heat sink for the cpu and maybe better air flow through your case.
