yeap... got Everest 5.3. ehmm and I've checked for the monitor board - NB temp and it says 75 C !!! I just don't believe it !!! can it be true?
Today I added another fan (to my little collection ;> - I've counted all these fans I got now in my case and it seems that (along with GPU fan and 2 fans in my PSU)) there are 10 all together - got to do sth with speeds because now I feel like I was sitting in B-17 cockpit

Forgive my ignorance but what does OP stand for?
And another "ignorant" question What did you use to check voltage points on the board?

Being careful is wise for sure. We spend way too much money on our toys to go crazy... 1.65 not crazy right?
LOL yeap ... I absolutely agree with you

the display is the CPU temp, and your temps are good for sure!
yeah - my CPU temp in idle is sth around 22-24 at most which is quite fine but what troubles me is that North Bridge temp ... hmmm I don't know what to think about it...?

Thanks a lot for your tips - very useful.

but I got one more question (as for now
RAM settings in mobo BIOS.

DRAM Advance Control


Setting these to BOTH (not auto) will show me settings as on above picture.

Question for all of you Do you actually use any of these settings - change anything? and which ones? (could you direct me where I can find some information about them?

DRAM Drive Strength


The same here. Have no idea what are these settings and how they can be useful... well, I assume that it's everything to make RAM more stable like Clock Drive Stregth but the other options???

I have found a few good tutorials about RAM timings (though they were a little bit outdated) ... couldn't find anything about above sections in BIOS (they should be explained in User Manual of mobo - it has been pissing me off always that they (any motherboard manufacturer) don't explain this)

OP=original post.
I used a digital multi meter (DMM)
Voltage points are in OP. or here

I would def remove and reapply the tim on the NB and so on. I have found that everest is spot on with 5.3 version.

I dont mess with the advanced Dram settings way over my head

The one issue I have with this board is that most of the V points are covered by the heatpipe solution and I would either have to solder leads on to them of get aftermarket cooling for the NB, SB, and Mosfets :swearing: Guess it's gonna be leads. Well that and the V droop

Yeah I hear there...

Hey E, Did you every get some of that T3(?) TIM or whatever it's called and try it out?
Current Stable OC for you guys.... Keeping the CPU-NB Happy while increasing the CPU Frequency has been challenging but sucessful...

Nice Brother!!!! I'm passing 3.5 hours Blend at that screens settings above! I"m going to for 4.0ghz by the end of the Weekend! Then Possible getting more out of my Ram!

Could you Imagine CL5 @ 1600Mhz with a 3.0GHz CPU-NB????

I'm going to try 4.0Ghz w/ 3.0Ghz CPU-NB AND Ht Link!!!

That's Some great news man!!! I'm excited about that I tell ya! I hear a lot of people saying that you don't need to water cooling and just need to replace the time on the NB/SB if temps on the NB are Above 50 @ stock volts and speeds. MSI is CRAZY if they think that 80C is the Max... They Obviously are taken into account that OCing will rais it even more!

Anyway, JIMIB,

Do think that the few options that Enzotech and EK have right now would suffice?

Yea so I blended those settings and got a worker stopped 5 minutes in. I let it run for 10 minutes just to see if it would lock up. It didn't so i need to fine tune that setting now Once I get it stable I will work on the cpu more. Also had ram at 7-7-7-19-27 while blending so more to test.

Dang Mastifman, you lucky sum-b****. I can't post at 2800nb, and my chipset pushes 60C at 2600 now, @1.3v. I DID however get my C3 to boot my Mishkin's at 8-8-8, which wasn't even fathomable with my 955 C2. I get random restarts with hyper transport flood error tho. DRAM at 1.9v, with the voltage option under it at 0.9v rounded, I can't remember name of setting off hand.

1.) I would definitely try and pull off that whole HS and reseat it with some Tx-3... That makes a world of difference...
2.) Put the Dram Ref. Voltage bck to auto please! ... No seriously, the MoBo does a good job with that one. That may be why you are having a harder time than you should be!
3.) Like SPEC (that's where I got the idea from) I use ONLY the CPU and CPU-NB VOLTAGE!!!1 NOT the CPU/ CPU-NB VDD Voltage!

I had to set my CPU-NB (V) to 1.28 in the BIOS and it's ends up @ 1.31v in Everest (U)5.3 with a full load and Is competely stable there! So I'm not sure if you are using the VDD Voltages to run that 2800 or not...

@ 3.0Ghz CPU-NB 3.9GHz CPU @ 1600 CL6 Ram I just ran for alomst 4hours on Blend... That's pretty good I think... ? BUT it was taking 1.45v for the CPU-NB in the BIOS and it's 1.47v in Everest and then goes to 1.50v whith a full load... And after it failed, I was typing some replys and it froze up on me for some reason... That was kind of weird.

I had the ACC set to "-2% on all Cores" so IDk....

I too have realized that you only need to play with cpu and cpu-nb voltage. I do not even touch the others anymore. With those fans on my NB it Idles at 42c and loads around 52-55c. Big improvement. It was nearly a 10c drop with adding the fans.

I can not even turn acc to auto with the board spitting in my face. I tried just messing with the - and + and got no where.
