Thx!

mduclow made a guide for this board a while back here: http://www.overclock.net/7977843-post3218.html

Here is another good guide from el gappa. He is using a BioStar motherboard but the setting are similar. http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ing-guide.html

He knew it was rev 1.1 because of your picture, it says it right above the third blue PCI-E slot. I also have the same black plastic "washers" with springs on them.

Let us know how these Settings work.... .
Not sure which one did the trick, I'll paste my bios settings tomorrow. Right now, running Prime95. Touch wood.

i tryed these settings myself using my ocz 1600mhz black sticks C8's. Managed to run prime for 2 hrs with out fault until core 3 failed the test, rest of the cores were fine for another 1.5 hrs until i stopped the test...what do you think i should try to fix that 1 core that failed?

I've gotten stable 4ghz with 8gb ram on linX "All" 20 passes with this:


201 x 20 - cpu voltage: 1.5v
nb x 13 - cpu-nb: 1.3v (you may use 1.25v)

now the ram it all depends how yours is rated according to specs... set them how its mentioned on your ram modules.

everything else leave it as default... ofcourse disable Cool n Quiet... I'm pretty sure my 4ghz settings it can be done on a tiny bit lower voltage, but this to be safe... anyways Now I'm trying to stable 4.12Ghz I'm guessing its 1.52v on cpu voltage.. going to test 14x on NB ... I'll report back soon
