Admittedly, even after a year of OCing my M4A79T Deluxe, I still call noob on myself,
. I understand that the Crosshair III Formula is not the same as the M4A79T Deluxe as it is more of a tweaker/OCer mobo. Trying to set the HT Link is driving me NUCKING FUTS. In the BIOS, I set the FSB to 215-216 and CPU-Z shows 1935-1944 for the HT Link and NB Freq (and yes, I set the HT Link manually to 2365 or so, up to 2800), ditto for the NB Frequency. Set it all back to 200 and viola those guys go up to 2000-2600 depending on what I set them to.
I gotta be doing something wrong is all I can think. Right now, I've got the FSB set at default (200MHz). (see below image please)
Just a quick, funny short story: I complete my (re)build the other day, power up and nothing, nada, zip, zero. After about 15min of cursing, swearing and punching the air thinking I had gotten another bad mobo, I calm down and do a physical inspection. Turns out, I forgot to plug in the 8pin cpu power. STUPID NOOB MISTAKE, ROFL.
EDIT: Just running a short, quick stability test atm, so far so good. More in depth test tomorrow.
EDIT: 1 hour Prime95 x64, passed, 0 errors. The first real test will come tomorrow, bwahahaEdited by LoneWolf3574 - 3/31/10 at 5:03pm
