question about the LCD poster...

I have it set to cycle through temperature. I get CPU, SB, NB, and MB for temps 1-4, but then I have "OPT_3", "OPT_2" and "OPT_1", all of which show values of N/A. What are these?? Are they configurable, for instance could i have one of those show my gpu temps? Whats the deal?

Now that is a brilliant question, i think the temps 1-4 are for each core (just a guess). As for the rest, who knows....


Anyway, i beat my previous 3dmark score, i now am sitting at 15082, broke 15k with a 512mb 4850, woohoo. anyways, im getting a Biostar 8800GT to be used as a dedicated PhysX Card. its gonna rock.

Also we have hit 100 pages, well done everyone.

If you take a look at your Motherboard, there are 2-pin plugs in 3 places for thermal monitoring (the opt_1-3) which would allow you to plug temperature sensors into your MB to display on the poster, or fans with thermal sensors to push more when your board gets hot, this is in your manual. Temps 1-4 are just as you said CPU, NB, SB, and MB. Speaking of the poster, I still need to call ASUS and see if it's covered under their warranty. I've called them about cables before, but those are not strictly for ASUS products. The poster is specifically an ASUS product, so I am hoping it is covered.

Trying to get an overall OC for my computer, and trying to stay stable on prime95 blend.. but I just got a BSOD (usually I don't get this, but I heard when this does happen..it's either my NB overclock..or my memory timings).

My OC:

CPU
200*19.5 (3.91GHz) @ 1.475v
NB
2600MHz @ auto voltage (can't check, friend has my poster)
CPU/NB @ 1.4v
Memory
Auto: @ 1.68v (advertised @ 7-8-7-24-2T 1600MHz 1.6v)
but at auto they were running at 1333MHz 8-8-8-22-31 (doesn't say the command rate)

So I got the BSOD.. should I run a prime95 Small FFT test to see if it was my NB overclock that's the problem...

Or was it my memory timings @ auto..and not a good timing? I'm not too sure about command rate.. am I shooting for 1T or 2T, and what is the difference?

How long do I want to test the Prime95 small FFt test to see if my NB was the problem or not?

I've ran memtest86+ and I my sticks have had no problem for 48 + hours! (stock advertised settings).

I was running prime95 Blend for less than 20minutes and got that BSOD.. I was reaching 56*C..and my computer ambient was around 36*C.

Any ideas on how I can achieve a stable OC?

Sounds like you're short on CPU-NB volts. You should manually set it in the BIOS, try 1.4V -- driving that RAM at 1666 is gonna take a little juice. It's still well within safe spec, and might even be slightly more or less than required, but it's not a bad start. Also, 3.9GHz at < 1.5V sounds like a tall order to me, although I am working with a C2 chip. Not really sure what those C3s require at those speeds.

The thing is my temps have risen over three months, and I'm starting to think I was right about having a tad bit overload on TIM under my H50 (don't know if you remember, but I said it was applied by spreading a business card *as5* on the cPU and the additional TIM on the card was applied to the h50). So I will change up my setup to intake, and add better push/pull fans + add a fan shroud and tape up the sides to prevent any air from leaking out. In addition, I would like to know hot to lap my CPU & if it would be necessary to lap my H50 surface. Thanks and any guides or tips would be appreciated!

EDIT: My nb/sb/cpu vdda volts are all on Auto, but my CPU/NB was set to 1.4v for the test!

I've still yet to see any temp benefit by switching to intake -- it seems like as long as your GPU exhausts out of the case, the internal case temp is pretty low as long as ventilation is good. I actually went up a couple degrees switching to intake, but you're welcome to experiment and see what works for you. How are your ambient temps? Have those risen as well? The H50 seems to be particularly sensitive to increases in that department.

edit: You can see here why I run the H50 as exhaust, the incoming air is relatively unobstructed, and the GPU is pushing every bit of hot air out the rear of the case. Crap pic, I know.
