I love how you shot down my 1.5 month old board. But is it Vdrop that's hurting me? cause i read on here:
I keep getting BSOD's, so nb/ram related? never froze or black screened
Or does my computer just suck a$s?
Might sound funny but do you have any PCi/PCIE devices plugged into your mobo that you dont really need? While i had my Asus i unplugged my sound card, graphics card and was able to overclock about 200 MHz high than before, 3.6GHz to 3.8GHz stable.
Turn all your unwanted stuff off in your Bios.
Perhaps some cable management for maximum air flow and if you can, turn those fans up.
How did you mount your HSF last time? Do you think you could mount it any better than that?
Set your RAM and CPU-NB to Stock then just give them a little volt increase over stock. RAM = 2.2v and CPU-NB 1.25v. Then run Prime and see what you get. If results come out well we can start upping outher things.
Last year i had 7 different motherboards. 2 Asus's then a Abit, then 4 Asus's.
Got quite annoyed waiting for RMAs to go though so i though i should just follow LeathalRises's advice and i just ent got my cash back and bought a Gigabyte. Even though i dont use all its features, i cant see myself needing a new one for a while.
We are going to get you 3.6GHz.
Edit: Do you really need to be that stable? While i just running at 3.6GHz i would fail LinX within 45 seconds but durin games or anything i tryed to do i would never get a BSOD or freeze.
Even playing crysis warhead for 3 hours and also nothing after 3+ hours of flat out TF2 which has high CPU usage.Edited by Willhemmens - 10/8/09 at 12:11am
