ok i tried waht you said but nope, nothing changed. still starts up silently, then the cpu fan speeds up, while sometimes the FF flashes and at the same time the hdd led light flashes too. and as i've tried the cpu on another board and it works there same with the other parts, also considering that overvolting an amd cpu is kinda hard, i'm pretty close to returning the board now. unless you have any other idaes :O

Nice Rewind! Can't wait to see what kind of runs you can do now! Hey I bet that you can lower your voltage more! Run it for a while reboot, lower the volts 1 tick and run prime again for bit and repeat until you become unstable! then turn her back up 1 tick in volts and run prime to ensure stability...

Well , that is my diagnosis! Return or RMA, whatever. Have you checked you pwer supply for voltage issues? Typically one could crank the volts .10v and not do anything at all...
Sorry that we could help you more brother! Good luck and keep us up to date on things!

Sorry guys that I have not been more active here but as you know winter is here and so is the snow :swearing: and that is my busy season.

way off topic here but tonight was crazy for me! I just happened upon a Federal vehicle that had rolled on the highway. (who says cops know how to drive) I guess HOMELAND SECURITY cant afford winter tires like the rest of agencies.... Anyway I happened upon it and checked to make sure he was ok as well as block traffic from doing any more damage. Called it in and I will tell you I have never seen more cops as quickly as I did tonight! All in all there were 5 state, 3 county, and 1 local, as well as 2 ambulances and a fire truck. Now when I first looked at the vehicle the only thing I saw was "Police" well when I dropped it off I noticed that It also said "Homeland Security" no wonder I had a police escort to the state post.... Anyway I managed to snap a quick pic for proof the exposure sucks as well as the lighting but...

Again sorry to get off topic but I had to share.

Yawa: when you removed the Heatsink's did they have thermal tape on the mosfets?

WOW, that's nutts! Well I guess that you can say that you now know who the Police officers report to!? lol

But glad to hee that no one was hurt and it's nice to know that there are good people like yourself out "Lookin' out" for others! Regardless of there status...

By the way that it sounded others stated that there was only TIM on the NB and maybe the SB. I'm not sure if I caught that one.

I finally installed my Swiftech Dual 120mm Radiator and WOW what a difference. My Idle temps are down about 2*C and my Load temps are down about 4*C.

So that's good news. I was coming from a GIGABYTE single 120mm rad. It did the job okay on a 95w Quad but with this 125w and the fact that I saw some leakage around very tiny patch of corrosion after taking the Tower outside, I figured what a better time to upgrade.


So Rewind, have you ran any tests yet?

Well there has to be some sort of contact with the mosfets I would think.

2*C you must have it outside right ?!? or do you mean from the 120.1?

Well I just tested both BIOS for temp changes, yeah, late. I can't get all in depth but basically test went as follows.

v1.7 BIOS: 3.8ghz 19x200, ddr3 800mhz, nb 2600, htt 2600: 32C idle, 48C load, ambient 21C... nb goes from 57C at boot to 61 under load

v1.84b BIOS: 3.8ghz 19x200, ddr3 800mhz, nb 2600, htt 2600: 32C idle, 52C load, ambient 21C... nb goes from 54C at boot to 58 under load, hmm... 1.3v

1.3v nb for both, and test was OCCT Linpack for 10 minutes... don't have too much time tonight. Did this help?

This is a v1.7 BIOS test pic, or "before"... I forgot to snap an after (1.84b BIOS) pic, but the temps are reported...

Just restart in betweens. My temps stabilize quick, system was idle in between. My nb temp seems to be down. Of course tho, I've never been able to monitor nb with hwmonitor, so I can't comepare it TOO much to 1.7 unless I reflash back... Im such a nub
