Raise your cpu-nb vdd to 1.3-1.3125v and you nb v to 1.28v. Your board may be going into the reset loop because : a) your ram isn't stable at the fsb you're trying to run or b) your voltage is to low to allow the fsb overclock. I don't really like the auto overclock. Prime95 failing at 512kb fft and higher is a imc controller problem. The increase in cpu-nb volts will help but watch temp because it adds to the total heat of the cpu.

@ Mastiffman

nb frequency over 2800mhz is really only useful for chips clocked over 4ghz. A 2800mhz nb is better than average and good for any overclock in the 3.6-3.8ghz range

M3T4LM4N222 what memory are you using???

i have the same mobo and cpu heatsink, and i have been having a devil of a time trying to find ram that will fit. i orginally had some g. skill, but all 4 sticks showed problems in memtest, so i will be trying another brand. the only problem is that the heatsinks on most dimms these days are too large.

any help would be great

I Have a question.... ive been trying to get my Cpu-z to validate But it has been coming back rejected... Any ideas why?


@ colden

I'm using OCZ Reaper HPC they may not fit with you CPU clooler. I can take measurements this afternoon when I get home if you would like. But they are rated at 1333 I've had them over 1600 at stock timings and 1.65v

cool. that would be great. reapers definitely will not fit. the xiggy dark knight cooler hangs over the first two dimm slots, with somewhere between 1/4 inch and 3/8 inch between the top of the ram pcb and the bottom fins.

and i guess yall can add me in to the "club". proud owner, just not a working build yet.


also, one other thing: when i get to the desktop, the led debug readout shows numbers in the 30's and 40's. is this the system temp??? (flashed to bios v 1.3) (god i love this m-flash thing. no more damn floppys)
post #165 of 9641
Yes that's cpu temp the same as the bios reading. Core temp is a little cooler usually.

Does anyone know where I can get the 1.46beta Bios at????

Shadow419, that's what I'm aiming for. I can run stable overnight around 3850Mhz. I can boot into windows at over 4GHz. I can also boot into windows at 3000MHz CPU-NB frequency...

I really want those 1.46Beta BIOS....

post #169 of 9641
I'm not exactly sure how the gpu version of folding works but if you can run it on each card independently that i don't see a problem. The board has 2 16x slots and 2 8x slots.. Im not sre what kind of strain that would put on cpu it may rule out the cpu folding.... Those would be the questions to ask some other folders about. But as far as i can tell thats should be okay. I don's see any reason why it would not work hardware wise......... But im not an expert.. Just getting into Folding....
