[OFFICIAL] AMD Athlon II X4 Club - Page 10

post #91 of 1595
NP. And thanx for the rep.
Just wanted to add a note or two here... When you get to messin' with the NB speed of course it's gonna generate some more heat, especially if you go high enough to need to raise CPU-NB voltage in the bios. If you are a more conservative overclocker and want to stay in comfortably safe ranges with speed, temps and voltages, NB speeds around 2400MHz gave the Phenom X3's and X4's a nice performance boost in a lot of benchmarks. On the other hand, this is also the speed of the L3 cache, which we are lacking on the Athlons. I would be interested to know whether or not the Athlon II's can benefit greatly from the NB speed boost like the Phenoms did, despite the lack of the L3 cache.

i guess we'll see what this little watair cooler can do.

i also removed the heatpipe connected heatsinks on my board (see pic) and applied Arctic Silver 5 to them all. we'll see if that helps any.



BTW, i flippin HATE how the SATA ports are side mounted!!

I do like the board but it seems like a waste to have a board without an IGP that only does 8x/8x crossfire especially since the 790FX has most of the same features plus does x16/x16 Crossfire.

If I had known that my motherboard cut my vcore voltage off at 1.55v (which is actually 1.520-1.536 idle in real time, 1.488 on full load) I would've gotten one with AMD chipset. Probably 790GX/SB750. I'm not using SLI right now anyway. My power supply doesn't have the 12v amps to feed a pair of 9800GT's. Oh well, another lesson learned.

I imagine it's a safety feature enabled by Asus. See if maybe the board has a jumper to remove that limitation.

@stetsonaw: Nice work with the AS5. I haven't gone to that effort with my rig.

General notes -

the 8x 8x Crossfire will probably not hurt 2 x 4890 or 2 x 5770 but could be a sizable limitation on higher cards than that. I think, given the potential bottleneck here, that instead of upgrading to a 5xxx series card, I'll Crossfire my 4890 when the prices come down a little more.

back to stock settings for the moment, just got my new board put in, so of course, time to format! oh, new case too, see below. used to be a crappy alienware knockoff with only 2 120mm case fans... now i have those plus side and top 230mm fans!

I have tested with say up to 1500 C6 with ddr III and really anything beyond 2500 NB is pointless.

In order to harness the power of higher NB the ram must be clocked extremely high.

Example.



Example 2.



Example 3

I have the exact same case sitting in the other room, waiting to be returned. If you mount the H50 on the rear exhaust you need to take out the side panel fan. I also thought it was incredibly flimsy and fit together poorly.
