Nenkitsune, worse case scenario we'll just have to play with the HTT (reference clock speed) and processor multiplier to get your settings all dialed in. If you raise the reference clock speed and drop the HT multiplier does it display the correct changes?
Yeah, I'm already dialing in my overclock by bumping up my HTT and playing with the multi. These PhII chips are a lot more OC friendly than my 7750BE was (it didn't like HTT bumps at all, this 940 loves it though)
The really tough part is that it has SO MUCH headroom, that finding it's maximum stable is really tricky. I can boot into windows at 3.8ghz, bench it, play games, but launch prime and instant restart. I can't boot 3.9 no matter what though.
I'm not sure what temps to trust exactly. my core temps read as 45c right now, and my mobo's cpu temp (basically the one in the socket) reads 37c (yes, it is warm right now, my room is really hot, and I'm using 1.568v because I want to try and figure out if I can bench 3.9ghz)
oh, but to answer your question, yes, LOWERING the multiplier does work (i have it at 7x with my HTT at 244 to bring my HT up to 1708, I have it that low because I actually was using a much higher clock earlier) It's like there's some sort of bios limitation that won't allow a multiplier above 8x to get set properly. You can set 10x, the bios will SAVE the 10x, but for whatever reason it doesn't SET the HT to 10xEdited by Nenkitsune - 3/18/09 at 1:14pm
