hi mduclow, this might sound stupid, and feel free to tell me but have you changed the power options within windows, as i found keeping it at default (balanced), caused random hangs and reboots even at stock settings, i changed it to high performance and then edited the plan and that solve my problems, (well one of them).

Yeah, I always set the options in W 7 manually. But, I am leaning much more heavily to it being a corrupt o/s of some sort, after speaking with a few others about this.

I will be tackling that angle in a day or so, I have to finish some school work first.

Thanks for the suggestion.

done some tweaking - I'm impressed so far with this C3! 3300mhz NB stable =o)~

Very nice NCspec.

I gotta ask how are you guys able to get such good RAM timings at the higher frequencies? Are there some voltage options that I am missing in order to stabilize the RAM? So far I only mess with CPU-NB, DDR voltageand NB voltage. Any help will be appreciated and of course repped.

PS: What do you guys think of OCCT as a stress tester? I like it better than prime because it stops the test when 1 core fails. Prime just keeps the cores that didn't fail going.

You can use OCCT....i like it better than prime actually i just dont have it installed yet lol
post #1717 of 9641
Well I was just running it and it stopped after 53 minutes saying that my temps were too high. I check the report thing and supposedly one of my cores hit over 100C. Must've been a fluke.

I've been able to recreate a condition in which my board does not POST due to NB frequency. I'll post my findings later when I get home so that I can jot down all my bios settings. I have a feeling this is probably what you guys are encountering with it being stable one moment and not posting the next. Now that I know what is causing it I never encounter this anymore. =o) There is a couple key components in the bios to allow for a high NB frequency.

Sounds great, NCspecV81, pass it along. I'm guessing we are all ears, here!

BTW, nice job getting your NB up to 3300mhz, that's just awesome!

Marc

EDIT: Thought you all might like to see what $340 worth of 60GB SSD's will give you performance wise. The small reads/writes are a bit low, but I think that this can be improved with tweaking, just need to figure it out!

I will when I get home. I'm at work right now and don't have access to my bios. However the CPU-NB VDD and CPU-NB Voltage are very important to achieving a high NB frequency, other than cpu temps itself.

CPU-NB VDD voltage adjustments shouldn't be necessary as I used AUTO up until 3300mhz in linx and have posted at 3600mhz NB. However, if you adjust your CPU-NB VDD voltage up it has the ability to become severely unstable and in a lot of cases not even post.

Conversely, the CPU-NB Voltage is the key setting for NB frequency. I use approx 1.55v on this setting, but the odd part is if you adjust the CPU-NB VDD voltage to appox 1.48v it's no longer in red on the CPU-NB voltage @ 1.55v. Although, not stable at all and won't even post @ 3300mhz for me until I drop down the CPU-NB VDD and up the CPU-NB. Actual NB voltage doesn't seem as important to NB frequency as the CPU-NB and CPU-NB VDD voltages.

Your results may vary b/c I'm actually using some spare i7 ram I have (dominator gt's) until I get iandh's ocz's. Apparently i7 ram isn't that great of a choice on amd 790's.

When I get home I'm going to start playing more with the NB voltage and ram dividers to see what effects those have.
