Okay, so it looks as if users are clocking their CPU's higher on lower volts for this motherboard these days... Is it a newer revision motherboard or the new bios being that it's on the same CPU's as it was before? Sorry, I'm not up to date on this topic as I used to be..
Sup man, yeah, the new kids rolled in. lol

I dont think there's another rev. yet. Probably just better CPUs. Mine isnt OCing any better, I was able to grind out a better OC on my RAM with the DRAM strength options.

your not stable. Not sure whats not stable but I know it's not. Either that or you have a lot of background tasks going when you did that. The Gflops just are not close enough. When completely stable I am within .01 Gflops of each other except for some freak ones that are due to other tasks that maybe going in the back. (when running max) when just doing 17000 I might be .2 from each other.

@eclipse, i would care-less for gflops being far with each other as long as it runs 24/7 for my task and no bsod's. thats how i define stability, and if my rig would surpass "max" stress load. am good

and besides, my real goal for my 24/7 rig is to run with the lowest voltage tweak as possible.. at the end of the day; am happy with my current settings.

and true, am actually converting movies for my ipod when i ran that test. so i dont i know if thats what your saying.. hehe

Hey Mastiffman! Glad you're still able to post on this thread. How is your almost 1yr old? (If I recall correctly )

I gotta agree that the newer chips are just more likely to get 4ghz performance on lower volts because of the "maturing" of the chips. I'm sure they didn't make a new revision because the changes weren't as drastic as C2 going to C3.

MSI HD 5850 OC Graphics Card.

G-Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz/PC3-12800 Ripjaw Memory Kit CL7(7-8-7-24) 1.65V Running at 1333mhz

AMD 965 CPU @ 3.80Ghz multiplier currently at 19x

Corsair H50 Cpu Cooler,


My questions are do you think I will be able to achieve 4ghz with the above sepcs? Also I am currently running BIOS Version1.A is it worth upgrading the new version?


I would be grateful for any advice you can offer.

Many thanks
You should be able to, though every chip is different, so there's no guarantee to 4ghz. First update to 1.G, lots of people are getting good results with that BIOS, myself included.

To get to 4ghz: I would recommend you put your northbridge and RAM speeds back to stock and push your CPU multiplier to 20x. Put the CPU voltage (3rd voltage setting, not the 1st setting called CPU Voltage VDD) to 1.4v-1.45v and test it out with LinX or IntelBurnTest with maximum memory. Run 10-20 runs and if it passes, it should be stable. Go with as low a voltage as you can (even below 1.4v if stable), so it will take a few hours of testing, even more if it doesn't get stable(keep adding voltage one click at a time up to 1.5v if it's not stable).

Once you find your stable voltage for your cpu, you can go increase your northbridge speed to 2600-2800mhz(13x-14x multiplier) using 1.25v-1.35v on your CPU-NB voltage (4th voltage setting). Again test it out with stress programs and if it is stable at your lowest voltage then you should be golden.

It is up to you to overclock your RAM, though there really isn't any significant benefits from that. I haven't seen any real world performance increases from 1333mhz Cas6 to 1752mhz Cas7, so it's really up to you.

Good luck and if you need help in anything else just come back here!

Edit: BTW, I had trouble getting 4ghz stable with 1.44v when I had my NB at 2000mhz 1.2v, but putting it to 2800mhz with 1.28v let me get it stable. Though I wouldn't recommend overclocking both at once, since you won't know which is unstable. Just something to take note of.

Yes, mine is at 4ghz with 1.44v right now. You have to make sure all cores are not faulty before you overclock though, so if you hit a wall at overclocking, make sure you turn off one core and test with a higher overclock. If it is successful, then you know that core you turned off is slightly faulty, if not successful, then try a different core.

Is it possible to have varying numbers since it's two different programs? I did notice that LinX has numbers closer to one another, though IBT has slightly less precise numbers, about .2+/-.

Hey Kokin,

Thanks for your response, I have just been checking the temps of the computer at the moment whilst its running at 3.80ghz. The north bridge temp is currently at 70c. Is this about normal or is it on the hot side?


Please could you let me know,

Cheers
post #8687 of 9641
Thats pretty hot, mines at 57C.
