No, it sounds like you should be fine, i know that alot of people have a bit of a variation between Temp readouts. DOnt ask me which 1 to trust though.

Welcome jacopo1403, To answer all your questions, first, I take it that you have not changed your CPU Multiplier to OC yet as your RAM is running at 1720. What you would need to do is then up your CPU multiplier. What i suggest, get it so your CPU is sitting at about 3.6GHZ and manually set your CPU voltage to 1.45. Then boot into windows and run 20 runs of intel burn test on max. If everything is stable then continue. If not then try up the voltage of your RAM a tiny bit. say 1.7 -1.8. your CPU voltage will still be fine at that. Then retry.

Once Burn test is successful, go back to BIOS, set your NB/CPU frequency to about 2600 > 2800. and set the CPU/NB voltage to 1.35. Go back to windows and re run intel burn test. This should pass. if not then lower your NB OC a bit

Keep checking your temps as you go along, NEVER GO ABOVE 60*C.

Once you have that all stable then move onto your CPU. Step up the multiplier a bit and then Test. If you fail to run intel burn test runs, step up your voltage a tiny bit. Keep this going until your get a max temp of 55*C then stop as you have hit your maximum overclock. 55*C is the highest stable temp you will get. anything over that and you might get instability. The only step after that to increse your overclock, is to get better cooling.

I hope this helps.



strezz, im sure 1403 supports Thuban, if not then 1503 defiantly will. On the ASUS website it lists all M4XXX mobos as 6 core ready, as well as the CIII. Im busy trying to just double check this, having some issues accessing the downloads page

My one worries with the upcoming CH IV range, will we continue to get as many BIOS updates. Or would they just be able to change the CH IV updates to work on our Boards?

check the bios updates for ch2 and check the date of the last update and see if it overlaps the release of ch3

Hey guys! been a while since I've posted in the CF III thread =) been busy with school and such..I've still been here at OCN just havent posted in this thread in a bit...anyway I have a question for all your fellow CF III owners! what is the average temp of your NB's? Idle and under a decent load..say..while running a fairly new game or something similar, my cpu doesnt go over 38/40C while gaming, my 5770's dont go over 50C, my NB at idle is around 40C though, which seems kinda high..I've seen it near 44C while gaming. I'm just curious what temps you guys are getting as I've read that the NB on this MOBO can get fairly hot. I havent had any issues with my system since I built it, got to 3.8 GHZ with a slight undervolt, still runs as good as the first time I booted it up anyway I look forward to comparing my temps with everybody else, and hoping mine are within range of what would be considered "Normal" for my MOBO. ^_^

When I first got my board, my NB temps were around 65C. That obviously wasn't right, so I removed the heatsinks and pipe, cleaned the contact areas up, and reapplied using new TIM. Temps now are around 35C at idle and 37C load.

I would say that 40C idle and 44C under load are just fine. Hell, Asus told me 65C was just fine.
