Post your questions/concerns about any settings and I'll be happy to help you figure it out.

That's a decent cooler from the reviews I've read, you should reach at least 3.8ghz with that. Mixing memory and using all 4 slots might slightly limit your overclock. Using all 4 slots puts more stress on the IMC, so it leaves less room for overclocks for your RAM and CPU-NB. I'll try to get those BIOS settings on here tonight.

So far the Hyper 212 Evo has been working well on my CPU. I took a suggestion settings from a guy and got it up to 4Ghz but I was concerned with the heat coming from the North Bridge so I decided to turn it down a bit. I have been running on 3.875Ghz for the past 3 days and so far so good.

I was thinking of resetting everything back and doing what you suggested. Change the settings one at a time to find the limit. But my concern is the temperatures on the North and South bridge chipsets. They became very hot to the touch when at 3.9-4Ghz.

Does the 790FX-GD70 have a temperature sensor for the Northbridge and Southbridge?

Hi guys,

Wow its been ages since i posted!

Anyways Christmas is coming and im looking to give my Computer a bit more of a kick, i think at the moment the only thinkg holding me back is the CPU & GPU.

Has anyone tried using one of the new 8-core FX CPU? i'd rather not go and buy a new board as i think this one is fantastic, and if i can get another 8months out of it but with a new CPU it would be fantastic. I Checked MSI but they dont list them on the support list which i find odd as i've read online that the 760 boards can support them.

Any info from the wise would be fantastic

Cheers

To be honest, you're not going to see any performance jump from your 955 to any of the Bulldozer chips. In some cases, you may even see a performance loss. Unless what you're doing makes use of multiple threads (encoding for example), it's not worth the money for a new board and CPU. I would much rather recommend the 2500K and P67/Z68 mobo if you were to purchase a CPU+mobo. Three of my friends just upgraded to or built a 2500k rig and they are extremely happy with the performance (enough to make me jealous tongue.gif). However, even with a 2500K, you won't see a big jump from your 955, so I'd much rather recommend a 2nd 560Ti or just save that money.

The Northbridge is normally called Temp2 in Speedfan, though it can run safely up to 80°C(this comes directly from MSI). I've personally never seen mine past 55°C, even during the summer, so I'm sure you're still within safe limits. You don't have to worry about the Southbridge period.

Here are my BIOS settings that I promised:

I found this on one of the OCZ forums, but its just the opposite of what your using for the CPU and CPU-NB voltages... your using the 3rd and 4th settings which in the pic below are notated with OFFSETS... and the pic says to leave at auto...

So what are the right settings to use... (is the pic and its descriptions wrong?)
I got the pic from this link..

That picture is what many members and users of this thread originally referred to before. However, some of the active main members discovered and tested that using only the 3rd/4th voltage (leaivng the 1st/2nd on Auto) allowed for no offsets and you could set them at higher voltages without being limited by the BIOS. They also discovered the actual voltages came from the 3rd/4th voltages, not the 1st/2nd as the picture says.

You could use all 4 voltages if you'd like though. I recommend not going past 1.4v for the 1st voltage and not past 1.3v for the 2nd voltage. The 3rd/4th could be set to what voltage you really want to use.

Hello!
I am having problems getting my new Corsair Vengeance 16gb DDR3 to clock to 1600mhz at 9-9-9-24 1.5v, but more importantly i cant get it to go to 1333mhz (would be more then happy with)at 9-9-9-24 manual, 1.5v manual ( have also tried 1.55) and 1:4 FSB:DRAM the highest is 800Mhz.

Oddly enough the BIOS recognized it running at 1600mhz in bios and start up, but CPU-Z and AMD Overdrive both 800mhz

Any help would be much appreciated
Thanks

800Mhz = 1600Mhz

Basically double that '800' number and you will get your rated speed in Mhz

(As DDR = Double Data Rate)
