You can still monitor the temperature thru the motherboard CPU sensor. Its the sensors for the individual cores which get killed. Everest will do it as will some other software. In my case Everest reports this temperature as "motherboard". In OCCT I had to change the setup for the sensors so that it was reading CPU temp off the sensor labeled TMPIN1.

This temp sensor isn't that accurate, it will probably differ from the actual core temp by 8-10 degrees. Its up to you to test in dual core mode how it scales on your system.

Martseger63, that doesn't seem normal. Are you able to increase the NB Multiplier with the processor not being overclocked? Perhaps someone with more experience with this board can chime in...

Also the load is 4870, OC 550, 2 HDD, 4 USB, Cooling device, the reason the site says 493W is because the capacitor aging of 30% I placed since the PSU is so old. So because anything I clock higher than 3700 on CPU and every time it justs shuts power off to my Computer. This is because of PSU isnt it or am I mistaken? Also my 12V read out is 11.65v when playing games and Prime95.
Dracos9000, I understand that but there is no way all of your components total (full load) are drawing 493 watts. I believe you though on the age of your power supply. Perhaps it's time to upgrade the unit

Just to clarify the 12V reading you are receiving through software may not be accurate. It's recommended that you test with a hardware device (ie. multimeter) for a more accurate reading. If the PSU is shutting down after high loads then it may just be poor quality components causing that issue. Do you have a budget and a brand/model in mind?

Good luck

here's a little update guys,
I sold my asus m4a79 mobo and changed it to a Biostar TA790GX A3+.

So far, my 550BE is now a B50 running stable @3.4ghz all stock.
, I cant do it before with my asus mobo.

But i want to flash my bios, but i dont know the correct command using afudos.
AFUDOS xxxxxx.bst /p /b /n /c when i used these command, something will came up, afudos [/i{filename.rom} [/o{filename}] - something like these, i dont know what to do Multiplier is disabled with the old version, i wat to adjust in the bios, a lot of options are lacking with the original bios.

Mr_yogabear, check out this post from HondaGuy. He included some instructions on how to flash with Afudos: http://www.overclock.net/7170209-post1701.html.

Flashing through Windows and in the BIOS can both be risky at times. I suppose if the processor is overclocked you have a "higher" risk of locking up in Windows. You can easily avoid that by just running at stock settings before flashing.

Hope that helps

True, when flashing BIOS, always restore you BIOS to original setting (i.e. put CPU back to original clock, mem, etc). Then flash the BIOS, once successful, proceed to overclock or get your configuration back to the way you liked it before.
