For the voltages I have two options for the NB...I think. There's one option that's called "CPU-NB VID Control" which allows me to step the voltage either up or down in increments of 50mV. I have no idea what VID means. Then there's another option that's called "NB Voltage Control" which allows me to only step up the voltage in 100mv increments, up to 1.5V. This one describes it as controling the voltage of the FSB between the CPU and the NB. From what I've been reading it's the CPU-NB voltage I should be raising, not the NB voltage.
I tried something before I left for classes today. I set the HT clock to 222Mhz, the CPU-NB to 1998Mhz, and the HT to 1998Mhz as well. Prime95 ran for two hours before failing. I then set the HT clock to 223Mhz, with the CPU-NB and HT at 2007Mhz. With no voltage change whatsoever Prime95 has been running for more than 5 hours and is still going. Seems like my motherboard is a very fickle thing.Edited by silentphantom250 - 11/20/09 at 4:11am
