Mine is as high as .024v.... WTH is up with that?

Anyone know of a way I can up my cpu fan speed to 100% all the time on this board? Or what I have to download a third party program and if so what program do you recommend.

If you go into the "hardware monitor" section of the BIOS and disable the CPU auto fan control you should be at a Hundo! SO in other words, all that you will see is "100%" all fo the way down. You can also download Speedfan.

Thx for the quick response. I went into H/W Monitor and CPU SMART fan was disabled already. I guess my cpu fan is already running at max of 1950rpm. Does that sound like a normal speed for 100%?

No Problem. Depends on the fan is it the stock AMD PhenomII HS Fan? If so they normally run about 3000-4000Rpms.

No I have a Zalman CNPS9900 Cooler, sorry it takes so long to answer... I get intrigued by one youtube video which turns into viewing many other youtube videos lol.

Actually my sensors read 0,01 above what's specified on bios for vcore voltage and under load voltage is exactly the same as specified.

My northbridge core voltage reads 0.07 above what's specified on bios.

1600mhz Cas6 with CPU-NB @ 3000+ will give you better latencies (Lower) than 1800mhz Cas7+ @ 2850mhz CPU-NB or less. it's easier on the AMD's IMC and will typically require less volts overall! JMO through Experience though!
I reached a stable 2800mhz on cpu-nb now.

Not so easy to find the sweet spots for low voltage + higher clocks.

With a stable IMC I can easily find the sweet spot for 1800mhz ram (I hope).

All of the wires are hidden at the top and there's quite a bit of room in there too. I have my water cooling system stuffed inside. Plan on getting a new Pump and Res to clean things up a bit. Would like a another Card too.

P.S. I got that desk 3.5 years from a Garage sale for $50!!!!
Hm. Yeah, not extremely. I think my case is like 19x21x8.1. I need to get WC tho on my gaming rig. That 120mm cooler is gonna keep me from upgrading to 8 or 16GB ram

Oh yeah. my Big Lots desk? $29 new.

I'm a bargain shopper...except when building a PC.

I'll workin on the margarita attachment. Maybe we can TEC a lead to a water pump and have it make the margaritas cold and exchange the heat into a seat cushion to keep ur chair warm when u get up for bathroom runs!!! lol

man...ok...I gotta quit thinkin about building rigs for the CC. I got a credit card with a ton of credit on it and there's a 9800GT sale with a rebate u can get on 2 video cards...I really wanna put together a 555BE C3 rig OCed to 4.2GHz with Corsair WC and 4x9800GTs folding for the CC.

I just don't wanna go farther into debt.

Oh well...cool rig.

Yeah my Vcore reads only .01 below BIOS setting but once it's got full load, it drops down by .016v and will pop down another .008 every 7-10 seconds for a few seconds.... Could that be the board or the PSU?

Ah, leave the credit and save money my friend. Or buy some used stuff and resell it for more after a good cleanup. My sister Garage Sales all summer and gets Crazy Deals! She'll MAKE 1100-1400 in summer season of Garage saling and then having one!

well I can confirm that if you put a 1x pci-e card into either of the 8x slots it will cause the adjacent 16x slots to run at 8x. Anyone know if there is some way around this? i.e. force the mobo to run the slot at 1x in the bios or something?
