Okay tried to boot with LLC off and still got nothing. What do you suppose I try to do with ACC? Right now I only have set it to auto.


Also, my bios version is 1301.

First u can try to disable the acc,
then enable, then activate all cores , just experiment with it

u might even unlock a 4th core^^

Had a little experiment of my own tonight.

I`ve been trying for a week to get a 4ghz OC on my 965 BE c2 step (win7 x64)
to no avail, so I thought I`d go a little over the edge getting results.

Since I live in Norway I got an endless supply of snow (its about 5feet outside:S)
atleast for approx 8 months of the year.

So I put my 2x120mm radiator in a pan full of snow so temps wouldnt be a problem
(highest temp I reached was 37C on full load) MB peaked at 30c

However, even pushing the volts 1 step at the time up to 1.70v on 4.1ghz it
always locked up 2 secs into booting windows.

Even if I underclocked anything else and overvolted the NB CPU/NB and SB nothing
seemed to work. ACC made seemingly no difference, neither did LLC.

The c2 step 965 has WALL at 4ghz, the best result I got was 24mhz over my stable
24/7 OC ... 3.95, close but no 4ghz:/

Any1 wanna trade me their c3?

Well good news is with ACC disabled I am able to boot into windows stably. Now since I cant use ACC is that a drawback or am I hurt in any way by this? Is it something with my hardware?

Thank you for all the help everyone I really appreciate it!!!

well, it would be fun if you tried enabling ACC and
enabling unleashed mode ... activating all four cores.

Maybe your 720be will turn into an 920 x4

Worth a shot, if it doesnt work u can always disable ACC again

And btw... ACC will not have an impact on your performance if its disabled,
its suppousedly for making OC`ing more stable in certain instances....
no one really knows what it really does^^.

But in your case it can be used to unlock a 4th core and maybe some extra cache.

GLHF, I posted a link that might be of help (up there

Does anybody else have this problem with their SATA controller? It reaches the point during POST where is scans the drives and takes nearly 2 minutes to complete this. I'm at a loss as to why and at this point I'm considering breaking down my RAID-0 to the individual drives for a "single" boot/install and then rebuilding the array. Sorry for the double, but I figured I'd ask here and ask the RAID guys as well since I think it could be either the controller or my RAID-0.

EDIT: FYI, reinstalling the OS is not a problem since I planned on doing it already.

My guess is that ACC on auto might have unlocked your 4th core (it shouldn't do it but its the only logical explanation) but it was faulty and hence your issues, now that its disabled, that core is locked and hence your PC is now working.

Its a normal part of RAID. its get the RAID info/configuration from the drives themselves. that is what is taking a bit of time (2 minutes is a bit extreme). i found that the higher i Overclock the faster it takes. especially with Northbridge/FSB overclocks. set your NB to about 2400 - 2600 using your FSB and see if it helps at all. It did with mine, in a huge way. the loading screens is only up for like 10 seconds before booting into windows. What version BIOS are you running? Im running 1403 perfectly. that might help improve it a bit. are you using the RAID Drivers that came on the DVD. My RAID is running really great and i am very happy with it. well get your sorted. Are the drives the exact same?

hey system if you don't mind here's my little oc on stock cooling.

3.6 ghz ran prime for little over 1 1/2 hours but hate how long it takes so ran intel burn 20 runs @ maximum memory thats the first screen with all the relevant info.

the second screen is me upping it to 3.75 which I use for gaming and such but in burn test temps get too high so I'm not gonna do a burn until I upgrade to water. it scores a nice 20700 pts in 3dmark06 with these setting but gpu set @ stock.

edit*
oh ya I did lower the ht to 2100 since I guess theres really no reason to go above 2100 and theres no point different in 3dmark or I don't notice any system performance difference either.

Why is your Gflops so low? 49? @ 3.6?
