post #3671 of 9641
SO! To OC this board I only want to look into CPU Voltage and CPU-NB voltage, not the NB voltage, or any vdd options? Wat about htt and sb voltages? And what about pci-e voltages? I've boosted everything up a little bit just to help any instability the system might run across (except the dref voltage MAsstiffman suggested not to touch), but I'm trying to focus on the mains, ie: cpu, nb, sb, and htt voltages. MY RAM just won't hold CAS8, I think it has to do with adjusting ALL timings into the 8s, ie: 8-8-8-24... Would it be feasible, or any gain to do something like 8-9-9-24? My RAM is 9-9-9-24-33 stock, but holding out at 9-9-9-21-30...

SEE! I didn't think that they would do something like that! That guy's a DIp Stick that said that! LOL

Well, it depends on what CPU frequncy I'm running. @ 3.8CPU or Less I only need to set the CPU_NB VOltage (NOT VDD VOltage) to 1.4v and I'm good to go. BUT once I hit 3.9GHz+ on the CPU it can take as much as 1.50v But if I were to lower the Ram Frequency to 1333Mhz I could run less voltage on both of those or Go a bit higher in CPU-NB Frequency on those voltages.

So It really depends on a couple of things.

I think that if one work the CPU_NB Upwards in speed, gradually, most CPU's will do it. It just take time, IMO...

For the CPU and CPU-NB you will want to adjust the CPU and CPU-NB Voltages and leave the CPU and CPU-NB VDD Voltages alone.

So yes! I have noticed that I can fine tune the CPU voltage with the CPU-VDD Voltage BUT for some reason I can't use the VDD Voltage for the CPU-NB. It doesn't post... Maybe it has to be used from the beginning of the OC to be useable. Or start using at a lower OC and work the OC up while (Question, WHY THE HECK do people use the word WHILST Right here??? That SOUNDS so incorrect? LOLOL) having it in the mix.

Nice man! It's a funny thing....

With my C3 965, it only took 1.46v for 4.2Ghz to validated in CPU-Z. BUT When I tried for 4.3Ghz, it took 1.55v.... So iw as like screw that! At least for now...

I would advise to stay away from AOD. Since installing this board it was not been a happy camper. Lock ups and instant crashes with small tweaks and low clock speeds.

Oki thanks! I have disabled them but ... well I thought that these options control efficiency of the whole Power Unit, I mean when the system needs more power they provide it more power ... errr oki I have messed up a little bit :>

Now... there is a question quite important for me - could you take a look at this picture and tell me what you see



Another lame question but it's not documented in MSI User Guide (IOH is I/O Hub, right?) in other words the temperature of what component is showed at the picture? I'm going slightly mad :>

I've been able to get my AMD 965 up to 3.8Ghz on this motherboard but as soon as I start doing prime95, I get a BSOD and the system reboots.

If I touch the voltage settings at all it won't post. I'm running a 750W PC Power & Cooling power supply so I know it can handle the power... The temps of the CPU never get above 42C which I didn't think was warm at all (not even warm to the touch)...

And another thing theres no way I can get the system to run stable w/ the DRAM @ 1600Mhz... even w/ bumping up the voltage... I am a computer engineer so I didn't think it would give me these problems... Also running latest bios on the motherboard v1.7..... my NB and HT links are all set to auto... even trying to bump that up doesn't help!

thx for your help!

Regards,

Anyone have any tips for me? Thanks

Screen shots are worth a thousand words. Take some ss of your cpuz cpu and memory tabs. also list voltages. Break it down and give numbers so that people can help ya.

I have attached my excel file with voltages and settings. Nothing more than just a list of settings with no formulas or anything. I am working on making it so that it has the same options as bios does and will only allow you to enter actual bios numbers.

Thx for the spreadsheet I'll give that a shot... I'm using the BE version of this AMD chip FYI... how does this look? I want to get it back up to at least 3.8Ghz stable ... I'm running it now at 3.7Ghz and was able to run prime95 for about 15min w/o any crashes... thx!

Also, is this memory ok for this board?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231289

This is what I'm running now...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103046

And the CPU cooler which works pretty well even though it touches the heat spreader on the GSkill RAM... the fan on the CPU cooler keeps the ram well cooled.

Just another update, I took the PC apart to make sure the CPU cooler was making good contact w/ the CPU and now the CPU gets extremely hot when doing prime95... it got up to 75C then I stopped the prime95 function... how is this possible? It seems as soon as I touch the voltages, the CPU temps are just way out of control... when I set it all back to auto, it settles around 56C under full load... this is much better but I can't seem to break past 3.7Ghz...

What CPU cooler are you guys using? Thanks

enkrypt3d: I use the Megatron. it does the job quite well. You have to remember you have the 140W TDP version which is going to run hotter then the C3's.
