ram @1600 , 1.8 volts
nb, volts auto

and once again it booted straight into windows,
the only thing i can think of is that my board is only 2months old and could be a newer revision or something along those lines,
im also only running 1 4870x2 and also one hdd and my mem are in the blue slots.
Your running a C2 955 @ 4.2 Ghz with 1.4v core?!!??!!?? (that's undervolted for a C2) Are you kidding me?? That can't be stable! Is it?

My 965 C3 requires 1.52 just to be stable @ 4.0

nah my 955 c2 needed 1.43 to be stable @4.24, that was under phase though, it didnt like volts so that was as high as it would go unless it was under ln2,

my 965 c3 is currently running @4.2 with 1.4 volts but again its under phase,



since that pic was taken ive tuned the unit a bit and its now running @-29 under load

edit; sorry got the volts wrong on the 955 c2, it was actually stable @1.43

yeah you got it ncspec its good old mdf, its quick and easy to work with and cheap, i made it a will back as my previous case just wasnt big enough, the only down side to it is that i have to get the compressor out and give it a good blow out every fort night as it attracts quite a lot of dust,






sorry for going off topic guys.

Not at all ezgonzo, but you do owe me for the doctors visit to re-attach my jaw.

Mine did pretty much the same when I added in the second 4890, but doing the heatsink thing dropped it big time (like 20c load, 15c idle)

I really wish we could figure out what exactly it is.

Marc
Ah, non taken ole buddy!

The reason that I'm thinking this is because of being able to post @ 2800 with the same chip, but different BIOS. So how could it be realted to the chips if the symptoms change by the BIOS. Logically that points the finger at the BIOS... Yes, No?

If it wee the chip (from being pushed to hard or whatever) then why would I be able to boot into the OS with the same chip but only by changing the BIOS... It may very well be a combo of things.

Here is my Question to everyone!!!!

Look in between the 2nd and 3rd BLUE PCIe slot from the CPU, under the Back PCI slot, it will say this:

MS-7577VER: 1.x
What does everyone's motherboard say and also post your results with ability to post @ 2800Mhz CPU-NB or not.... If there is a difference in Board Versions, then that may very well be something to look into.
