i have the same issue with my 720BE, nothing on the newer bios (1.5b2 up) allows me to clock my nb past 2600, i'm staying with 1.5b1

Do you guys suggest running both at same freq, or htt one step below? 2800nb, 2600 htt? OR the same? I'm still learning...
if you got a decent ambient temps then 4ghz would be possible but my best bet would be around 3.9. I also found it hard to get a stable oc with the nb at 2800, highest i got it stable was 2600 with 1.35v. You can leave your ht at 2000, won't gain you any performance (and i believe it worsens your efficiency) with more than 2200.

Go MSI!
i have flashed my board numerous times since bios 1.2 up to 1.7b3 and haven't got a single issue using afudos. i don't recommend m-flash, it's still a bit risky. if you can go back through a few pages of this thread, you can find that ristikalli? bricked his board using m-flash

guys nice temps you are having there it is a pretty good step at water cooling, i also went in that direction not so long ago. i started with a coolermaster v8, then a swiftech h2o compact, then custom watercooling. there's really a big difference with water compared to air cooling... that i will try to show below

**************
3dmark06 run, cpu & video cards watercooled
**************

i did this run on a saturday afternoon in Singapore, a few weeks ago, to see if my setup can hold off the temps in not so perfect conditions (ambient temps wise). probably having an ambient of 28 or 29c. yahoo shows it's 28c





and my results, don't look at the score look at the cpuid hardware monitor




**************
prime95 blend test
**************

Below is a screenshot of Prime95 blend test at 30 minutes together with cpu-z, hardware monitor and amd overdrive. Since I have no external temperature gauge measuring ambients, i would just guesstimate it around 24c with the AC on set at 21c. Temps at idle (3.9GHz core at 1.488v, 2.6GHz cpu-nb at 1.35v) were around 30c idle and maxes out at 42c Prime Blend test. These temnps were all based from the cpuid hardware monitor.






Right after 30 mins i stopped Prime95 blend test, idled for about 2 minutes and took a screenshot (below). Idle temps got down to 27c within just 2 minutes.




This is my watercooling setup.

CPU Water block: Enzotech Luna REV.A
GPU Water block: 2 x MCW60 Rev.2
Pump: MCP350 (Laing DDC 3.1) modded to 18w
Reservoir: XSPC DUal Bay DDC Res
Tubing: PrimoFlex LRT 3/8"ID 1/2"OD
Fittings: Bitspower compression fittings for 3/8"ID 1/2"ID tubings
Radiator: Feser Monsta 420/360 Xchanger
Fans: 5 x 140mm YateLoon Medium at 1400rpm, 1 x 120mm Lian Li fan at 1200rpm (3x140mm fans in push, 2x140mm + 1x120mm fans in pull)

Final release bios v 1.6 is up on MSI's website, must have just come up this morning.

I'm trying it, I was on 1.7b1 and it was buggy. I couldn't post past NB 2400 as well, had major issues with it. I was also getting a bunch of 'Hyper Transport Sync Flood' errors, too. Hope this new bios fixes a lot of the bugginess I was having.

Quick question for the masters here:

How many BSoD's should I say, ok I should re-install the o/s and everything? I don't mind doing it at all, but I have been playing with bios v's and o/c'ing and have had a lot of BSoD's.

I think it was eclipse or one of the others that said I should image the install after getting everything done, before o/c'ing, and yeah, it made sense, but it didn't happen. So, I know of doing that, and will this time.

Thanks,
Marc

Beautiful system, are you water cooling your GPU here? I was wondering because when I'm under load in a game my GPU gets into the 70s, kinda hot!

So far everything is great! Much more stable than 1.7b1 was.

I haven't tried NB 2.6 yet, I just bought a 240 rad (last night) and am now into 4.0, so I'm running it for a bit. I'll let you know how it responds to pushing the NB up past 2.4

Marc

EDIT: Ok, so I decided to go into the bios and set the NB to 13x, which was giving me so much trouble on 1.7b1, and she posted just fine! The post time seems to have sped up for me, too.

So far this is the best bios version (1.6 official release) I've tried.
