Well crisis adverted. Took out a stick a RAM and it came right up. Apparently the thumb drive I used to flash the BIOS wasn't too reliable. It recovered itself and re-ran a flash off of my good ol' micro cruzer and I'm back up and running again. Time to go work on this OC!!!
Glad to see your not bricked and were able to get running again.

From seeing other peoples results, It looks like you need to up your CPU voltage some more. The guys that are getting in to the 4ghz are in the 1.5v range....
See what happens when you bump it some more. Your only upping multiplier so you should be good by just getting some more volts into the cpu from my understanding...

I did not use any of the VDD volts stuff its all auto
I have my CPU volts at 1.42 in bios and Vdrop in cpuz says 1.408

NB is where your way higher then I am try dropping that down to like 1.2 or 1.23 see if that helps. It maybe making you be unstable with to much volts.

Get back to me with what happens.

any of you guys removed the stock heat sink and pipes on the NB sb and mosfets? got this board coming in a couple of days, was wondering if it would be worth it to change the TIM?

It stays pretty cool with stock crap... can throw a couple 40mm's on it if it gets hot...... it would be a fun mod though just to do....

can you raise your board's voltage above that limit ? how much more have you tried?

1.45v is hardly the limit for this board. I myself dabbled in the 1.47v range and other folks are hitting 1.5 with the proper cooling.
post #137 of 9641
I think the person that got that board just got a bad one i know that numerous people in this thread have went to 1.5 with no issues.

I have pushed 1.55 with mine for an hour for some 3dmark and other tests. I have had no problems at 1.50 doing test at 4.0GHZ and thats fully loading the system 100%. I think you will be fine plus with this board and a 955 it seems the chips dont really like over 1.45 volts to be stable so you will be fine.

k, were you on ln2 or something? what cooling u used and what was your temp when u were running 3dmark with 1.55v?

and how much is the safe temp and safe volt in air to overclock the proc to 3.6 or 3.7? (room temp @ 25c)

More than likely he was still on air. The safe max voltage for the Ph2's are 62C and you can probably get to 3.6 on stock volts. I'm able to do so with my sig cooling and was also able to do it with a single regular 120mm fan. My temps never go higher than 41c with my current cooling and my Kaze's at 60% spin. For 3.7 you might wanna find a sweet spot between stock volts and 1.38. You shouldn't need anything higher than that.


EDIT: Also check the 955 OC thread. The 955's love cooler temps. You're able to scale higher with less volts the cooler you're able to keep the chip
