That is an AWESOME looking rig! Mine looks like garbage compaired to that. I will try the new bios sometime soon and give my two cents. I will also look into pushing NB to 2400 ro so, and the htt I will keep at 2000. I seem to be 3.8 stable again at 2000/2000, with ACC on. With it off, it wasn't stable. Coincidence? Luck? IDK,

I will flash to 1.6 Official tonight as well and see If it can take my 2.6-2.8NB speeds.

I noticed that 1.6 Official has an M-flash update. Can anyone comment? Can you still downgrade say from 1.6 to 1.5?

The NB is what the memory "info" travels through. Personally I run my NB @ ~2.6-2.8 and my HT @ ~ 2.4-2.6. Soon I am going to be doing some comparisons between HT speeds to see if they really make a difference.

Cool. Id like to participate more on this thread for technical issues. Anything I could do to help? Im gonna keep htt stock. I figure, if both are the same speed, that should keep them in "time" you think? I'm not quite sure on they're relationship with everything else in the system. BUT, if the nb and htt are both memory related, wouldnt you want to keep them same speed? Hm...

good read

One thing I would like to have in the OP is a bios flashing guide for both the floppy way and the M-flash way.
Also just posting about experiences you have, and answering others questions.

Also you could join the club(OP sign up) and put the sig link in your sig(also in OP)

Hey guys... I was on here earlier looking for help with memory. I took one of your suggestions and purchased:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226076

After installing the memory I started getting blue screens when I set the timings to 7-7-7-18 and the DDR Voltage at 1.65V.

Do I need to tweek any other settings in the bios? I need to know which ones I have to change exactly Someone earlier said cpu vid, but there are a couple that look like that. Can someone show me a screen capture? I must be missing something. I'm running 1.63b which I found somewhere on these boards. Should I go back to official bios?

I ran memtest overnight with 7-7-7-20 and it came back with 2 errors. Today I ran it at 9-9-9-20 and it passed. Whenever I load up steam and tf2 it freezes and I get blue screen. I'm fairly sure it has to do with the memory because with me old ocz memory I wasn't getting blue screens...

I'm debating what to do? I still have my 3 sticks of ocz ddr3 1600 but I have an RMA ready from newegg to send those back. I don't want to do another rma and lose another 15 bucks, but I also don't want to have to send them to mushkin and be without my machine for a week or more. Are my sticks defective, or am I just not setting up my bios correctly. Any advice?

"CPU-NB voltage" prob needs a bump to say 1.3

I like 1.54b but am going to check out 1.6 official. IIRC someone said it was a bios issue running low timings. In your case I would recommend running 1.6 official and then trying it.


I would first call the support line and do some trouble shooting, and If after that they still wont do specified timings they they are DOA.

I just got a new baram installed on this board, and for some reason I am only able to see the rpm's of one of the fans???

Also lost support for the front usb connectors, need to recheck that.

And for anyone who is interested, till now the thermolab has not beaten my vendetta 2, even with push pull, with 2 GT's at 1450. I wonder why.....

Hey all, Just figured I'd post here, (first post) I tried the 1.6 bios and it fixed the issues I was having with the 2600-2800 NB Posts.

1.6 and 1.7 Beta all had that problem for me....

Have a 955BE myself.
