Ocfanboy, that is correct. A +.200 increase from stock would put you at 1.2000 volts. Does the processor at 3.9Ghz successfully pass stability testing in Prime 95?

Good luck

In the beginning it wasn't passing but I upped my nbvid to 1.8xx and it became stable...
I took it from 19x206 to 19x211 to get to 4.0 so my nb clock speed went up bout 0.100... That's why I think it's my nb vid... But I've upped the nb vod voltage by nearly 1.000 from when I had it on 3.9... In total I've upped it bout 1.5... So from what I understand I should up it a little more so i will have upped it by at least 1.300?since my stock nb vid was 1.1000?

Looking at this chart I can see I might have to bump it up a little more if it's not stable when I get home...

Here download is file and install while in windows, this program will allow you to update your bios while in Windows
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/M...lity&FileID=52


Here is what it will look like.... then just Update bios with the file you just downloaded (F8)
I tried using it but it didnt work, it was probably cause the bios link you gave me was for rev 1.0 while i have 2.0

I used one of the tricks from there but ive run into a problem.

When the bios are updated and i try to boot on default settings it keeps on restarting just 5-10 seconds after it made it to the desktop. I bumped the vcore to 1.42 (my oc vcore) and it seemed to work just fine. Now should i be worried that it wasnt stable on default settings or just get started with oc'ing?

Gigabyte mobo have Dual Bios on the board, so when flashing, you get a bad flash, hydro goes out, it reverts back to the oringal stock bios and then you can try to reflash your bios again

Senior: on your mobo CD there should be that program just version 1.0...........Or you can extract the bios to your desk top just leave it there, then reboot, gigabyte screen comes up, then push END on the keyboard to enter Q-flash... then choose your location (HDD) where you saved the new file, it should update there...

I already did update my bios but i have another problem.

"When the bios are updated and i try to boot on default settings it keeps on restarting just 5-10 seconds after it made it to the desktop.

^ Did you manually set everything to stock or did you load "Optimized Defaults"?

Optimized default.

I just went .025 by .025 and i found out that it needs at least +0.050 more than the optimized. Could it be that this version of the bios just require more power for the cpu?

Hello guys! well, finally i received today one PII 550. But... Mounted in a Gigabyte GA-790x UD4 (F3) with 2x2GB Mushkin Radioactive 1066 5-5-5-15@2,1v. But... in bios, all in "default", runs perfect... but... when i run orthos (with its four options) in 54 min, crash, and occt default test, crash in 10min...

My temperatures are 36ºc idle, 44ºc full with Noctua NH u12, and vcore stock 1.30v.

hello djohny,.. well i assume you got it unlocked and tried to stress it with dual orthos , you could bump the vcore one or two notches due to its power demand running in quad mode and would be grateful if you could post your bios setting as well ... watch your temps, 44c stressed at stock is a bit warm...

happy clocking
