I do have the stock fan and my idle temp is around 47 so so and when I do the stress test it crashes around 60 to 63. It that normal? I see some of u guys go up to like the mid 70's

Thanks
I would'nt advise overclocking on the stock HSF,thats why your having problems with temps,better off getting an aftermarket HSF.

As for ACC and unlock cpu core,you dont need to be using them,disable them,ACC was never meant to be used with PH2's,was meant for the older PH's that had the "cold bug".

im not sure I understand the board I switched from I only had 2gb of ddr2 in a 1x2gb config and I ran stable at 4ghz.

also is there a good set of waterblocks for this board? I'm ordering a EK-FC5870
for my video and it would be way easier to plumb at at once (and cheaper)

Have you tried your ram in the blue slots,and have you tried "ganged",worth a go.

As for waterblocks,there are plenty of good ones on the market,choice is yours really,bearing in mind your TT760i is only classed as entry level liquid cooling,i know,i have used one.No disrespect meant.

haha no worries moorhen! you are right it is an entry lvl and really if you dont have the Thermaltake spedo case OR a case that you have opened above the drive bay its really not that great at removing heat. im changing out the pump to a higher flow and a bigger reservoir but the radiator is pretty good and i added a TMG1 so it really has no problems keeping the cpu nice and cool but im doing the BIG upgrades this month, summers in Florida are hell.

i will try my ram in a blue slot but i cant use "ganged" you have to have 2 sticks and thats not till next month

The CPU VDD isa little higher than CPU and the CPU NB VDD is on Auto. Memory is at 1.65v as rated.

Hi!
I have two Problems - please help!

1) How can I read the correct temps of the Northbridge?
If I even cold start my PC all Programs i´ve tried shows
around 90 Celsius.
After 20 Minutes stress-test it shows then 94 Celsius.
This can´t be right.

2) I have Bios 1.9. My System: Phenom II x 4 945 C3 Stepping with 8GB
G.E.I.L 1333 RAM 7-7-7-21 1,5V.
My PC runs stable with all Settings at AUTO except HT-Link Voltage
fixed at 1.25V with an Ref. of 240 MHz = 3,6 GHZ (1,325V CPU-Z)
BUT my RAM (which works perfect when CPU is not overclocked)
makes Problems because it works only with an
RAM Divider of 1:2 = 960 MHZ.
If I choose 1:2,66 = 1280 MHZ it will not even boot.

What can I try to fix this?

THANK YOU!

A.

P.S: Sorry for my bad english - I´m from Germany.

Welcome to the forum,first you can try "everest",you can download a trial version,this will give you a good idea of your true NB temp,90c seems very high.MSI specify a maximum of 80c.

Because your overclocking the HTT/FSB,doing so automaticaly overclocks the memory,your default frequency should be 667mhz x2 =1333mhz..you also have to put the memory timings in the bios manualy,and your ram voltage manualy as well,1.5v seems low,and as your trying to run 8gig,they will need more voltage.If you take a stick out and look at the lable,it will tell you the corect timings and voltage for the sticks.Hope this helps.

Is there any possibility that the CPU IMC or MB is the culprit if I have to raise the voltage of my memory to get my machine to run stable at 1600mhz?

I had not been able to get my machine to run stable with the memory set at the manufacturer specified 1.65v @ 1600mhz. I finally just set the DDR voltage to 1.67v and now the machine will actually do a blend test within Prime95 rather than locking up immediately.

The memory passed a 24 test with memtest86+, so I'm unsure if that means the CPU IMC is having issue. Would the memory voltage have any affect on the IMC performance or would that just indicate the memory is the issue?

I'm trying to decided if I should RMA this memory since it will not run at it's specified voltage, but I don't know if 0.02v is withing acceptable tolerance range. What happens if I start to OC the CPU, will I have to keep bumping the DDR voltage up even more than usual?
