post #8101 of 9641
I tell ya what.. after nearly a year with this rig it's getting close to upgrade time. I'm becoming ever more weary with all the boards getting buried around here though. It's been a great mobo. I'm just toooo chicken to risk blowing **** up for a few more cores and slightly better OC results.

I think I'll just end up handing the whole rig down to my boys and starting from scratch. Hopefully she'll live out a long and enjoyable life.

Well I got exactly what I wanted out of this mobo for the $80.00 + tax that I paid and that was for a BNIB at Fry's Electronics.

I wanted Faster DDR3-RAM and better CPU overclocks. So far I have obtained my first goal of Faster ram w/out pushing this thing to much. The cpu is another story and I think it's quite content running at 3700MHz until I get an H2O loop going.

this is kinda funny now. i was getting a constant squeal for about an hour and i shut it down. i start it back up and im getting a noise that sounds like a camera flash charging in 10 second intervals. i removed the heatsink on the mobo and found no burns or discoloring on anything. we'll see how long it lasts.

That sounds like Capacitors going out or vibrating from loading up and discharging.

Hi y'all,
I've been away from this forum for a while and forgot my old settings. Can someone please remind me of a good, starting NB voltage for a 2400 OC? CPU is running 3600 with stock voltage and RAM is 9-9-9-24-33 1T with 1.5v

Thanks!

1.25-1.3v should work. as always, get it stable, then back it off a little and retest.

Every chips differs. I need to have 1.392V real (in bios 1.35) for 2700NB. So you can try 1.2 - 1.3V to stabilize CPU NB.

DrBrownfinger: You was faster , but anyway, im hoping that your MB will be OK.
post #8108 of 9641
Yeah 1.2v and up is a good starting point other than stock voltages. 2400MHz is pretty mild so you should not need to increase your CPU-NB volts much if at all.

Thanks for the quick response! I'll start with a stock CPU and test 1.25, going down from there.
After a sanitary erase of my 2 SSD's and a clean install of Win7, my machine is running tits! Other than than the RAM speeds listed above, my graphics cards and BIOS are stock and I played Black Ops last night for 4hours on the highest graphics settings without even a studder.
