I forget who our resident RAID guru is but it is defiantly not me! You might try posting in the RAID Controllers and Software sub forum. I am sure someone there can help ya out! If I had any experience with raid I would but alas I have none.

This video might be put as my avatar next yes its me

I want one!

BTW guys IIRC PhenomMSRTweaker tweeks the C&Q settings because C&Q has no idea what the proper voltage would be to run when it went into power saving mode. Now if you are running multi OC only C&Q may work by itself but I would not count on it.

Tell me about it...i can't wait till i can legally buy and carry my own gun...never know when you might get stuck in a sticky situation

I believe you are onto it Eclipse...i think its when you FSB OC that C&Q won't even work...still even if you are on a multi OC its best to just run the PhenomMSRTweaker application and set it up yourself

I like to just run my setup at 3.0Ghz with low voltage when i am not gaming...

Nah, just haven't been checking in on the thread. I've been busy with holiday stuff like anyone else, and looking into watercooling more and more. Im just hesitant to actually go through with it.

Thansk for the info on disabling the cores. I kind of figured it wouldnt hurt anything, I just don't want to put too much stress on 1 or 2 cores, and then shorten the overall life of the CPU and/or those 1 or 2 cores specifically. I've been thinking to run my 955be in dualcore mode, and do some benchies just to observe temps vs performance. I even wanted to try for 4.5ghz+ on a single core and see the performance. IF I can cut temps that much disabling one core, then I should get LOW temps on singlecore mode. Too bad Core0 HAS to be on all the time. I also wanted to do this to test each core for stability, and see which is the weakest core, so i could possibly use ACC to correct it.

Peace guys, and Happy 2010!

I know exactly what you are going on about...i too wish AMD would have allowed us to change which cores we run..considering you have a core thats alot weaker then the rest you oculd run as a higher clocks triple core and lose the first possibly weakest core...as for a fast single core its not worth it and even if you get the temps down pat which BTW shouldn't be too hard with our S1283 cooler it would take way to much voltage for such little gain oh and BTW i have seen this board go pop when you get into 1.7V if you where thinking of trying that kind of voltage out...i have only read up on two cases of the board dieing when that kind of voltage is used though so take it with a grain of salt

As for CPU life i don't think it will make much of a difference...CPU Core 0 is always going to be ran so shutting cores off and trying to increase the life span of the CPU that way really won't work when you think about it...you can run an app like PhenomMSRTweaker and just massively downclock/lower voltages at idle...thats really all we can do

As for water cooling i would say it depends on the case...if you want to go into it for fun and have cash to throw away just for fun then yeah do it...if you really have to have silence then its a possibility...if you are trying to achieve a few 100Mhz for performance 24/7 i say NO

As long as you are not hitting really high temps with your current cooler i see no reason to go into water cooling...the real effect on your CPU's life span that i see you can actually make a difference with is the temps of the CPU...voltage/on time are second to temps

So what temps are you hitting now? with what voltage/clock

Can this board do ACC? It has the SB750 but I don't have a option in the BIOs.

I'm at 1.4vcore, with a .008vdroop at load (1.392v) and 3.8ghz 24/7, multi based OC as my RAM cant do past 200 fsb. Im also 33C idle, 23C ambient, and 56C OCCT Linpack test

Rewind this is the exact reason that they implemented the ACC option. it stablizes the weaker core on an OC enabling Higehr OCs. ONe just has to apply it. +%'s are the direction to go on the weaker cores just so you guys know...

Not for me..i turn on ACC and my board freaks out. it makes weird noises and sounds like an old 1800s camera with the light bulbs makes and high pitched noises lights flicker off and on.

WHAT????? REAlly???

EDIT:

Rewind, have you experimented with CPU PLL anymore?
