The voltage (1.45-.968) and multiplier (x16-x4) fluctuate lock step too.

Why is this?
That would be cool and quiet (C&Q) taking effect. Turn it off if you are going to be OC'ing as it can cause instability.

hi. this is my first post cause i just found this forum a couple weeks back. i run my cpu at 4.0ghz all the time unless im doing benchmarks. what do you guys run yours at? i have run mine at 4.3ghz stable (2hrs prime95) on a cold night with the window open and run approx. 63c. at 4.0ghz it never gets over 54c.
also i changed my nb paste with ac5 but i also have a 40mm fan zip tied to it. my idle temp is 37c and highest i've hit is 61c. my nb is 2664. would this be considered good? i haven't read all 490+ pages yet.

It's my understanding that hyper flood sync errors are caused by having the CPU voltage too low. Try increasing this

sadly I have, I even went up to 1.49 volts and people had felt that seemed a tad high.

I just sold my G.skill ram and a friend is bringing over some really old crucial DDR3 so Im going to plug that in and see what happens.

Hmm. What powersupply do you have? Have you noticed your vCore dropping under load?

Flash back to 1.8 (bios), buddy. Hopefully if it's bios version related that should do it, and 1.8 is fine, I haven't even gone to 1.9 yet, don't see the need.

I had some HTSF issues with some of the beta bios's back several months ago, like 1.6xx & 1.7xx beta's, so it may be related. I think it may be C2/bios combos, some of the time. I was using a C2 @ the time I was using the beta bios's. Not saying it is related, just how I was setup at the time.

FTR, it doesn't seem that everybody's system is going to respond the same way with this board (assuming very similar or near identical key components).

I'v noticed a few irregularities with members doing the same thing and getting different results. HTSF errors seem to be one, NB cold boot is another. Some people have RAM that won't play nice, and others with the same RAM are fine.

Just my observations, lately.

Welcome to the thread. There are a lot of great people in here.

Those are some good numbers you have there. That's a good C3, not all of us are so lucky (like me ).

If you're going to Blend, you really should run it for at least 3 hrs, the 2-3 hour span is working the NB and RAM very hard, and is the most common place for instabilities with the Ph II's.

The higher the NB the better, and you shouldn't need much in the NB core volts for NB overclocks. Maybe like 1.2-1.25 for 2.8 Ghz, probably even less.

Good question.

I'll jump back to 1.8 give it a shot,

I only crash during games.. again the only this PC is meant to do.

gentlemen is on his way to pick up my ram, I will be purchasing something someone else in this thread is using, most likely OCZ it seems.

next im selling both my 4850's to try and get a new GPU.

@ rains
im using an old 500 watt antec which was running my old build just fine.

On a side note... I have no crashes or any issues whats so ever in windows xp..... it has only been Windows 7 I attended PDXlan 15 in Feb and actually reformatted to xp for the weekend so as to not crash!! went splendidly, come back to Windows 7 BAM!!! punch to the crotch every time I try and launch a game...

You were trying to run 2 4850's with only a 500W PSU? That might be the source of your problems, since 2 4850s + a PhII are close to reaching the limits of a 500W PSU, especially if OCed.

As for RAM, I recommend Mushkin. I've never heard of anyone having problems with Mushkin, but they aren't as widely used compared to OCZ.
