post #1671 of 9641
thanks for your replies mduclow and eclipse much appreciated, i first tryed running my ram at recommended settings which where 1600mhz, ( 9,9,9,24 ) @ 1.8v but after an hour of prime got a bluescreen,
i tryed looser timings and upped voltage but no luck, so i dropped them down to 1333mhz with the timing above and had a go at upping the nb, i set CPU-NB voltage: 1.35v and NB Voltage: 1.25v and i got it prime stable for 3 hours at 2650mhz,
i then tryed upping the cpu first i set the cpu voltage to 1.375v and worked my way up to 3.72ghz which was where i got it too before, i ran prime for an hour and it was fine so i then tryed seeing how far i could get it before having to up volts but once i hit 3.75ghz it didnt want to know,
so i upped the cpu core to 1.4v still no luck so upped and upped it until i hit 1.5v and by that point it wouldnt even reach the splash screen, so i thought id raise the cpu-nb voltage but still no luck so i then dropped the north bridge back down to 2200 but still it
didnt want to know, by that point id had enough and called it a day,
i just dont understand this board i got the same 955 to 3.92 prime stable on my old asus board with only 1.42v and that was the max voltage the board had thats why i bought this board so i could get higher but i cant even match it, what am i doing wrong, sorry about the long post its just been one of those days, any more help would be extremely welcomed.

Gonzo, set the NB and the RAM to auto (including the timings) and have a go at it. BTW, which BIOS are you running?

ditto on the drool!
I am referring to the CPU multiplier. Anything you want to change in AMD Overdrive(or any software OC'ing SW) Needs to be set to auto for it to be able to make the changes.

It will be in the same cell menu area, right near the top actually.

I am running 1.6 official I just have not changed the Sign up list. When I got the board it had 1.4, I flashed up to 1.5b4 (which worked fine) and then up to 1.6 in the hopes of lowering my timings. (no go)

I learned from Legit review of the Solano 1000 case it can accommodate up to 150mm tall heatsink without removing the side panel fan. The best Heatsink for the Job is the original Noctua's NH-U12P heatsink.. Its 149mm tall. The revise model "SE" is much taller... 158mm.

Locating the original NH-U12P is turning out to be hard.

This board does need a slight bios update imho. I can't use the blue slots with this chip or it no posts. I found my best results using those slots. Also, high multi's do not play well with this thing yet. Not sure if it's the chip or something that needs to be tweaked with the bios on the board.

However, this is what I'll be using daily until my x58 is rma'd. =o) Definitely a frequency improvement at near/same volts.

yeah the bios's are somewhat lacking. No LLC and there is some droop.
I wonder if something happened to the traces for your blue slots.

blue slots work fine with the c2, not the c3.

Mudclow,

I was really depressed when I saw that you had 29*C for your NB temps... LOL Thanks for clairifying.

"good call! was thinking about something else at the time.

The thing about the link I posted is, There are two was to "burn" in your cpu one I posted a link to and the other is where you run your CPU at a unstable setting with a lot of voltage and literally burn the speed in by forcing it to run at those speeds @ 100% for a long time. This is supposed to work but the trade off is the the CPU life is greatly decreased and so is the life of the OC. I believe the link you quoted is talking about the second way of "burning" in
."


What's the life of a maintained (kept cool) at stock speed CPU anyhow? OCing may cut a few years at most off of it. Most of us "enthusiasts" are getting new processors every, what, Few months LOL!!

Seriously, maybe at most every few years.... At the Most!!!
