ok guys, i have redone the thermal paste on my NB again, 3rd time this week lol...hopefully now i have it right. btw i know the max temp for the 955 chip is 62c, now is that the temp on each core at 62c or the cpu temp at 62c? because my chip says it 59c on the chip and each core says its at 56c when stress testing. NB seems to be maxing out at 62c instead of 78c before i redid thermal paste.

As a rule of thumb,the cpu temp will allways be slightly higher than the individual core temps,but your temps do seem a bit high,what are you running your cpu at speed wise,???

hmm at 3.2ghz and idling i am now getting around 39c on cpu and 55c on NB , 1 hr of stress testing, cpu 55c max, NB 66c.

i have now overclocked to 3.7ghz and NB at 2600mhz, temp is ilding at 60c NB, cpu is at 40c

When stress testing your temps are going to get fairly high,and allways remember that a 64bit OS will put more stress on the cpu than a 32bit one,which adds to temps overall.

Hey guys, Im going to be getting this board and a Athlon II x4 630, I'm wondering whats the best ram to get, So far im liking these...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231278

I'm not super knowlegable about how to OC the ram so what im wondering is that with the newest BIOS will it run the 1600 memory automatically without having to tweak anything or will it just drop it down to 1333?

Without touching bios it will default to 1066, you have to change the ration to 1/4 to get 1600.

As for the ram I got these and they are working perfectly. Can't comment on those Gskill

Congrats!

When the Motherboard has all setting for ram set yo auto (with all new setups it is) ram will default at it's SPD (Serial Presence Detect) speed, voltage and timings! These are volues that are preset on the Memory Modules to ensure a safe and compatible bootup. Which is normally around 1066 for AM3. Lower speed ram will be more like 800. To get 1333 or 1600 you will need to go into the Cell Menu under the Ram Speed and Change the Multi to 1:3.33 (1333, no relation in the numbers it's all math and worked out that way) or 1:4 (1600).

Let me know when you get the ram and are ready to boot up adn I'll help you set them up real quick!

I can! DON'T GET THEM!!! Most people are having issues with G.Skill on the AM3 setups!

When I switched to AM3 that really surprised me. On 939's it's the total opposite. The Coretemp was always ~10C hotter than the CPU socket temp.

Really? I didn't know that. When I get win7 I'll have to check that out. Thanks for the info.

Those aren't bad sticks, but then again they aren't great either considering their price. DDR3 1600 CAS 9isn't all that.
I found these Patriot ViperII's which are DDR3 1600 CAS 8 (they're faster than the G.Skill's), and about $16 cheaper.
I really like my Viper's, they OC very well and can take all sorts of voltage (I've had them as high as 2.1v). Very easy OCing and the RAM sinks work very well.

As I mentioned above, people have had issues running G.skills on this board.

And those are some perty sticks you're runnin.

LOL, yeah they are nice sticks, need to grab 2 more but Newegg is out till 2/16 last time I checked the other day. I had my board at 285Mhz FSB with these sticks. I just got done installing windows 7 ultimate yesterday in hopes of fixing my instability issues. For some reason I could not run anything on my OC within Vista home premium. I think it was from changing of GFX cards, went from Nvidia to ATI. After the change I was having all sorts of crashes and whatnot. 7 is treating me nice so far. Since I formatted and installed 7 I decided to flash my BIOS also and went from 1.6 to 1.9 as I do not like trying beta anything except for somethings I really want to try. So I should start my OC'ing journey again over the long 3 day weekend. Got to love those paid hollidays! So I should have some decent OC's for you all. Gonna try for 300+ on the FSB *crossing fingers*
