Nice one.

Oh by the way I just purchased some Mushkin Redlines 2x2GB kit of 6-8-6-24-1T ram at the egg for $114.99 w/a $15.00 MIR so After California Sales Tax I will have paid $109.48 for the kit. If any one has been waiting for some Good Ram to go on sale now is the time to pick up a kit if this is what they have been waiting for like my self.

Finally I will be able to start my benchtesting on this mobo some time next week and not just be a member posting in here about having the boar. Now I will finally be able to ask why I am not able to do what the rest of you guys can pull off.

What flash method you use?
i always use the usb option thru bios using m-flash.

Nice! Those should prove to be some Good OCers. I had a set of DDR Mushkin Redline XP 4000 and they easily went to 300mhz (600mhz Cas2.5)

i broke down and bought a 1075t at fry's for 179.99 today. using bios v1.d. i set it to 4.2ghz cpu-nb 3000ghz. seems good so far. im suprized at how low the idle temps are. 23-24c in a 20c room! my 965 never idled lower than 28c. the temps are from speedfan cpu temp, not core temp. gonna play with it a bit. i'll keep ya posted.

I wouldn't be expecting a miracle but they should defintely meet your reasonable expectations...

P.S. What was wrong with your Cosairs?

Yeah those are some pretty decent temps. What TIm are you using? I thought that was a BE? Why are you set HTRClk to 300?

false advertising on the black edition. not too disappointed though. 15 is the max multi. i have the fsb at 300. still adjusting voltages to get it stable. i went high on the oc outta the gates and now im back to doing it the correct way. i have it 1hr stable at 4050mhz with the nb at 3000mhz. im kinda worried about adjusting the cpu-vdd at all because of the reports of people bricking these mobos by going too high on that setting. i set it at 1.200 and have the cpu at 1.43, down from the 1.45 that gave me 1hr prime blend stable. i know just 1 hour isn't anything, im just trying to get a good stable base oc at around 4.0ghz with a 3k nb before i go for a good long prime run.

edit: unfortunately this patriot ram doesn't oc well. i can get it to around 1700mhz and thats it. it will not do cas6, no matter what. i think its kinda shakey any time its over 1600. its great at the stock 1600 7-7-7-20 1.7v though. ic diamond is the tim.

So why didn't you get a 1055T that's 95 watts?

price. and fry's didn't have the 95w 1055t. i'd hate to order one from tigerdirect if its possibly the 125w that they actually send me. i dont want the hassle of sending it back and such. $179.99 is a hell of a deal imo. i also thought it was a be. you dont see the box until you get to the register at fry's. they keep em locked up in a cage behind the bank of registers.

I was lazy when i did my first overclock and just uped cpu voltage and cranked up the multiplier, but having a bit of time on my hand yesterday I went at the 720BE again. (4th core unlocked)
I started with 5mhz increments on the cpu and got it to 250 mhz fairly quickly and was able to boot win7 64 and run bench test @3.5Ghz. It took 1.51 volts on the cpu to stabilize with 2 bumps on the multiplier 250x15 (3.75Ghz) and dropping the htt and NB multipliers to x8. I bumped the multiplier back to 14.5x250 (3.65Ghz) and raised the HTT/NB multipliers to x9 and cpu voltage to 1.49v and managed 3 hours of testing and went to bed. Woke up and its still running fine, but warm 38ºc idle. I can only manage 1666mhz for the memory speeds or windows pukes. I settled it back to 1333mhz to tighten the timings. I think working with the voltages for the NB might get me to the 3.8Ghz I wanted from this 2.8Ghz cpu. When I get it all to the point of satisfaction I will upload the prime/cpuz validations.

( I grabbed a cpuz validation)
