Good luck

Do I just change the CPU Voltage and leave the others on "Auto" or do I need to change them as well?? This is the other one you wanted Im assuming.

Vertigo, I typically prefer to manually input the voltages. If you leave them on AUTO sometimes they will automatically adjust themselves which is something you really don't want all the time. Pay attention to your "NB Frequency" as well. When that speed goes up you'll also have to adjust the "CPU-NB" Voltage. Make sure to check out that guide that I posted earlier.

If you can please add your system specifications to your signature. This will allow those that are helping you know what type of hardware you're running ect. You can do this by going here: http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem

Good luck

well, I guess I'm one of those unlucky dude outhere. I might have to sell my processor to a lower price and buy a new one.

Ok I just set the "Vcore" to 1.4 @18x200 =3.6 and it still crashes when I run Prime 95. Im doing the maximum heat, etc,.

Like I said I really have no clue on what to set all the other voltages on so they are all on auto. Can you give me a some suggestions for all of them?


Thanks so much for your help ^^

You dont have to type awdflash & go into the program at all.
When its at A:/ type

awdflash 1201.bin /py /sn /f

exactly like that with the spaces, if 1201.bin is the bios you want to flash to.
It will do everything then ask you to take out the floppy & restart.

The Commands:
/CC = clear CMOS data after programming.
/CD = clear DMI data after programming.
/CP = clear PnP (ESCD) data after programming.
/F = use flash routines in the BIOS for programming (force flash).
/R = reset system after programming.
/PY = program flash memory.
/SN = don't save existing BIOS.


EDIT: Update just check ASUS Site to downgrade:

Hey guys, after weeks of researching on how to downgrade bios on my P5k-premium or any Asus mobo with AMI bios, I have finally found a way. This method requires the Engineering Edition of AFUDOS. You can google "Afudos Engineering" to find some links to download. Here is a link I've uploaded.

http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/8/...FUDOS229ES.zip http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/8/...FUDOS236es.zip

I use the Boot USB method since its faster and more reliable.

Extract the AFUDOS onto your boot device along with your BIOS in the same directory.
use this command to flash:

AFUDOS /ixxxx.rom /pbnc /n where xxxx=name.rom

After it sucessfully flashes and verifies. Turn off your machine, unplug, and remove battery.
Easy as pie, spread the word people!!!!
Sorry for being naive sir but what does ixxxx.rom means, so lets say ill be using this bios M4A79-ASUS-Deluxe-0082.rom how will I type the command. Thanks

AFUDOS.EXE M4A79-ASUS-Deluxe-0082.ROM /p /b /n /c

Mind the spaces. A space between the adudos.exe and the .rom file name and spaces before each of the swtiches ( i.e. /p )

I was trying to reach 3.8ghz with my 550. I set the voltage to 1.45v and multiplier to 19. During the prime95 test one core stopped working. Does this mean not enough voltage or something else entirely. The max temp was 45c.

Vertigo, try bumping up the Vcore 0.025 to see if that helps. In regards to your voltage question I'm not too sure on all the settings but here's what I can provide. Keep CPU VDD Voltage and CPU-NB VFF Voltage at "Auto". Adjust CPU-NB Voltage whenever you start overlocking your NB Frequency. Anything over 2400Mhz then give it a +.200 bump. Since you haven't touched your memory at all then I would keep DRAM Voltage at it's stock rating but take it off of "Auto" and manually input the voltage. NB Voltage only needs adjustments if you decide to overclock the reference clock speed (HTT or FSB). This is basically the chipset. Same goes for the HT Link Voltage. If you have a higher than normal HT link speed then increase the voltage in small increments (if required). Remember to disable "Spread Spectrum" when you start overclocking.

Hope that helps

Dracos9000, are you able to pass stability testing with Prime95 with only two cores enabled with the 3.8Ghz overclock?

Good luck
