Dumb. Unless you're going for HUGE numbers on LN2/DICE, why just buy a 6-core for benchmarking? Apps that are threaded very well can make use of the additional cores, not to mention it would make a great folder.


Anyways, been a while since I posted in this thread. What's everybody suggesting BIOS wise these days? I've had no issues with 1105 since January, but was wondering if any of the subsequent releases have provided any benefit/more stability.

Here is an article about the importance of northbridge overclocking with Phenom II.

I wasn't able to get stable @ 3.75 GHz on BIOS 1305 so I updated to 1503 and was able to stabilize. Still working on on the 4 GHz stable and tightening up my RAM more (Just haven't had any time lately).

1503 works like a champ!

I'm very much just a gamer. I really don't see the appeal of a six-core processor yet.

i do a lot of encoding(i dont want an i7 because intel like to change sockets alot, and i like amd better), run a lot of vms of different os to see what the os is like. benching and gaming. Not really needed for gaming or benching, but it does help with those when the application uses it

About the new Bios, I had to rollback to 1403.

Everytime that I tried to "update" my memory configuration using AmdOverdrive



The MOBO didn´t start with the message "DRAM Locked". Clear CMOS didn´t work to me

Now, it´s normal as before.

im starting to think i need to reseat my heatkiller

my motherboard temp on pcprobe is 24C and at 1.4 volts my cpu says its 33C at idle

what do you guys think.. could it have something to do with me just adding a second 5770

it used to idle at 29 and after about 4 hours of not being used it would idle at even 27

but when its on load it never goes over 40 and when i run intelburntest it peaks at 45

am i just paranoid or do i really need to reseat it

thanks

ps. here when i get some time i need some help with mem timings its just hard to get pc stuff done with a 5 month old that requires my attention
