You have to remember these boards where designed for single and dual core cpu,s,long before quads came along and they only have one powerplane.

Unless you setup a second lower clocked profile with the nvtools(I think most are not) they are going to run at full clock and power,where as newer boards have dualplane power and can use C&Q.

I think that is where the high temps you are seeing are coming from.

My x3 720 runs warm too if I don't use C&Q.


Good luck

But in theory should not present the same temperature? since the CPU supply voltage is the same? Or are they the same temperature but the sensor is mistakenly showing a higher temperature?

My 970 BE runs @ 25 ºc stock and 36 ºc @ 100% on all 4 cores with Prime.

I am using an aftermarket air cooling though, so it all depends on the airflow and ambient air where your pc is situated.

These Phenom's do like the cold though and when i recently done an overclock test upto 4.2Mhz, thus raising my vcore to 1.42v, my 100% load prime test gave me a Max temp of 43 º c but the ambient temp in my room was over 22 º c, so i consider it a good temp reading for an air cooling setup, but i do recommend another cooler.

I have a brand new Phenom II cooler that came with my 970 CPU which i may put in and test to see the difference in stock temperatures.

White Hawk about that cpu error, did you ever try the AMD cpu hotfix? When i had the 6000+ in any windows version before win7 i had to install that.

The name was amd dual core optimizer. It had some timing errors between the cores that gave problems. In some games, i think witcher was one of them, that patch made really a difference

@ The Fryer: I agree, and fully expect a noticeable improvement in general gaming performance, particularly with the most demanding ones. I also have a few games with quad core CPUs listed as recommended spec that should really start to fly! I doubt the extra cores will make a substantial difference in day-to-day use (though larger CPU caches may make some difference there), but I have no complaints with the current performance level in this respect anyway.

@ xtac_inside: I did try the Dual Core Optimizer with no noticeable change. Unfortunately, the issue cropped up so unpredictably that I could go a week without problems even while gaming heavily, then I would get three in one evening. It would even happen sometimes while I was doing something undemanding like browsing the web. It was frustrating trying to replicate the BSoD reliably. I still have it installed (I think), but I might see if a more recent version has been released and experiment again.

Truthfully, I've leaned more and more toward the possibility of a flaky core or north bridge exacerbated by Vista resource demands than the infamous TLB erratum. I should know definitively after Christmas though.

Thx gyro!
With or without AHCI, my system is very more fast, like a rocket
Now boot takes 38seconds (soluto benchmark).

Been away from the site for a while and don't have time to go thru the last 200 or so pages, but has anyone tried the hexa-core PII's in this board? I don't expect ot hear of it working but figured i'd ask.... would be great to stretch this board out longer

Thanks in advance

Even the newer boards need a bios update to even boot with them,so I don't think they will ever work on these boards,as I think we have seen the last bios(5xxx) we will get.

I've been told I would have to play with the core voltage and ram speed to put the PII 940 AM2+ on my board. Does anyone know what numbers would be good to start with. I'd hate to buy a brand new Quad core and cook it, or BSOD for two weeks trying to get it running.
