The 965 (for example) is about the same rating stock (1.4 volts) hence the reason why I recommended trying 1.4 volts. Unlocking additional cores may require more voltage. My Athlon II X4 620 is stock at 1.4 volts. Trust me I've tried undervolting the processor but it failed miserably in OCCT in the first 20 seconds of testing. Granted the 620 runs cooler because of it's smaller die size but it's still a quad and requires that amount of voltage regardless. Also the cooler that came with my 620 is identical to what is used on the 550

It's worth a trying. Heck for all we know TheM could be trying to unlock faulty cores...

Good luck
thanks for the tip, i will try closer to 1.4
the reason i do not think it is faulty cores is because prime 95 ran 3-4 hours with core 1 3 and 4 fully stable, and another time, core 3 failed, and 2 went for an hour (till i closed prime), so i feel that i am only giving enough volts to power 3 cores maybe? rep+

with all cores on and running 100%(prime95), at 1.35volts CPU temp is 45,
is this safe for my cores?

that's fine.

people including myself like to stay under 55C. Stay away from 60C.

i've switched the stock xigmatek fan with one of the Cooler Master R4 fans i have on my side panel. At max speed i hover around 49-50C under prime95 blend. I've upped my OC to 3.65 @ 1.45V.

im using the delta at 2000prm for both exhaust and cooler...at that speed they are a lil quieter.

about gpu fan noise, im using the stock fan (that small red one) at 2k rpm..it doesnt make any difference at 100% because of the 2z 120mm 90cfm sunbeam fans... although if you want to compare noise then the deltas are as loud as that gpu fan at 100%..or even more i may say.

the deltas are rated 120cfm at 2500rpm.. max speed at 12V is 2800-2900rpm..
max possible speed is 3500rpm as per product spec sheet.
the fan is able to keep the chip at 2-3c above room temperature at idle.
i have just started using TX-3 paste.. although i see no difference in idle temperatures as compared to TX-2..
I have the CCF 120mm as well, this is why I was wondering. @3.8ghz, open case, stock cpu cooler fan, I have 10C above ambient. How much temp drop would you think I would have if I installed 1 or maybe 2 or those deltas?

Just gave the update BIOS from server from @bios a try, and it said my BIOS couldn't be found on their server. What the hell ?

dont download through @BIOS, i've tried it and it didnt work for me. Download it manually onto your flash drive (FAT) and then use QFlash to flash it.

Axxess, refer to this download link for more details. This will take you directly to the bios page for your board: http://www.gigabyte.us/Support/Mothe...2978#anchor_os.
