I am in the same boat you are. I'm pretty new to this.

I finally got my board to boot at 4.0Ghz and ran a short test with OCCT and got some very strange voltage readings.







I have seen that the core voltage can drop allot on this board but with the 12v readings I am getting I should not even be able to boot.

Either your sensors are wrong, your PSU is :turd: or you had a brownout. I couldn't say for sure which of the three is most likely.

No, it was on sale before, and now it isn't.

Hey Robilar, what's your avg. fps on any games you currently are playing?.. I'm guessing you play on 1920x1200?

yes 1920x1200
call of duty 4 and COD waw, I average around 200 fps, lowest about 120, highest spikes are crazy.

thats with 4x aa and all settings manually to maximum

i'll run fraps on grid and see what kind of fps i'm running on it as well

i just recently picked up the original crysis but have not as yet installed it but i'll make a point of testing it as well

for 3dmark06, i get just over 20k with ram at 800mhz, cpu at 4ghz and video card at stock settings (with my qx9650 at 4 ghz, i get just over 23k on the same setup, quad really helps in this test)

I bought one anyway, even not on sale. (But there was a $20 MIR. I should send that in now...)

averaging around 200 fps? Thats amazing...

I read an article on Tomshardware.com about the E8600 paired with several mobos (every gen. of the core 2 chipset) and it definately sold me on ATi cards & the E8600 for my first build..

I think it's pretty safe to say that this thread has sold me on the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P.

Thanks Robilar!

I don't think it's my PSU and a brown out is unlikely. It's my guess that OCCT is not working correctly??

Everest shows good readings when running it's stability test?
