Haven't tried pin-pointing where that is. I've been trying to find 'sweet spots'.
I can make that my next one

The other thing I've figured out is that the Asus M4N78 pro BIOS will remember the multiplier even when I go back to all auto. This makes it possible to then boot into windows and have the Asus AI Suite utils push the boundaries or not without rebooting & changing the bios settings.

I was able to get the 295 fsb(showing 293.xx on cpu-z) by:
1. Reset bios to factory default, reboot.
2. Set the bios settings. Hit F10 to save.
3. Get back into the bios
4. Hit the power button (as soon as the bios screen appears) to reboot again. This seems to do a reset of some sort.
5. Let windows attempt load.

My theory is that the 1st boot sets sets the values I entered, & the second (power button) boot recalculates the auto values based on the running entered values. It does seem to pause a few seconds longer than usual. ... I found this ... completely by accident, while ... trying to boot into a hard-coded 12.5 * 295 as I had ... before.

Silentphantom250, welcome to Overclock.net

For your HT Link speed (2400Mhz) you really do not need it that high. The benefits of increasing that speed are negligible and in my opinion are not worth it. You'll see more of a performance increase by raising the NB Frequency and running tighter memory timings. If I understand this correctly your NB Freq is also at 2400Mhz? If that is the case try bumping the CPU-NB voltage up to 1.3volts. Anything over 2400Mhz NB Freq and I would recommend bumping it +.100 from stock (1.175v).

Hopefully a few others chime in soon with some suggestions.

Jacqlittle, nicely done! CPU load temperatures seem kind of high. Is your case getting plenty of airflow inside?

ArthurDent, very interesting fix with the power button

Good luck guys

Sorry i don't understand you very well...

My case is NZXT Beta and i replace the 120mm 1600rpm original fan fron the front of the case by a Tacens Aura 120mm, wich is more silent but maybe doesn't refrigerate as well as the original 1600rpm fan included with the case, and i add too a Tacens Aura 120mm at the rear of the case. My HSF is a simple Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro, which isn't a great cooler but by the price and for this processor it's well, i think...

The case is into a desktop type furniture, and the place it is isn't the best for to be well ventilated, but i don't have other place too... 62ºC i think is maybe a little hot, but not too much, isn't it?

Sorry for my english, i know it isn't very good...

Bye!

Jacqlittle, no problem your English is perfectly fine. Those load temperatures seem just a little high. The poor ventilation at the rear of the PC may be the result of the high temperatures during load. Is there area where you can place the machine to test to see if that in fact is the cause? Remember too though, you probably won't be running your rig at 100% 24/7 so you may hardly ever see those temperatures.

Good luck buddy

EDIT: Also the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro should be fine for a dual-core processor. The Athlon II Regor has a pretty low TDP so that should help too.

Well, Prime95 is still running without errors, so i think it's stable...

In my city temperatures are too hot, now is 10:13pm and it's 20ºC, by the morning temperatures go to 30ºC or more, but i couldn't put the case in other place, really it is near the wall, at only about 10cm or less, but i couldn't do anything more... The furniture is like this (less or more, not exactly):

Do you think if i replace the rear Tacens Aura by the original 1600rpm with leds that came originally with my case, i could get down those temperatures???

With my old Kuma 7750+ BE (wich was very, very hot, with this case and other that i had a time ago) i had the original fan at the front of the case, and the 2 Tacens Aura one at rear taking out the hot air, and the other in the left side taking air from outside into the case, dirigited to the chipset, and temperatures got down, but with the Regor in normal use, temperatures are very good, compared with old temperatures with the kuma...

I don't know if it is what you mean??? I don't understand many words in english, and i don't know if that is what you mean, sorry
post #88 of 1106
I forgot to say that with Prime95 temps are too hot like you say, but with normal use they're about 43-44ºC or less...

Bye!

P.D.: actualizating my system settings, i see that temperatures now are 10ºC plus at full load than before upping VCore to 1.52V, from 1.375V that i haved at 3.6GHZ, really they're hot, i think i leave for normal use with old settings for everyday use...

Jacqlittle, ahh ok so your room ambients are a little high which explains why. Taking the case out of the desk may help though. Try switching out the rear to see if that helps. What are the specifications for the Tacens Aura fans? By the way you are understanding me correctly

And i gave you temperatures at exterior, in my house temperatures are bigger... Yes my city is very hot most of the year, it's really curious see last Sunday people at the beach taking a bath

Well, like i said, i will return my system to old values, temperatures went up 10ºC more, and so it's very much, but is nice to see my processor stable at those frequency...

Bye!
