Got Maxxmem.

Did a restart with minimal startups and ran the CPU test again. A bit different.

Going to run the Maxxmem now.

Here's the Maxxmem test results.

PWN phase I put to full has to be energy savings


Thanks. I figured that must be what OCP stood for but wasn't sure. I am going to definitely have to do some testing with that one. I can imagine it helping with LLC because you can run a little more volts without hopefully having to worry about the infamous spikes LLC is supposedly responsible for. But at the same time I can see where it might prevent the cpu from getting that extra .01 or whatever needed to prevent a crash. Seeing as how this bios is branded as a stabilizing "fix" for some instability I'm inclined to believe the OCP showed some promise in their testing or why include it? Clearly seems to be geared toward someone who is overclocking.....
Well, hmm....looks like I won't be getting too much sleep this week after all, lol.

Yeah I cranked the others to full as I assumed pretty much the same thing as you but was hoping someone had already figured out the right way to tweak them all together.
The PWM freq and power is referring to the pulses used to control PWM fans?? I could care less about it if that is what's it is for but just wanted to make sure it didn't have other rippling effects I'm unaware of.

Don't forget about the option in BIOS to disable onboard devices(sound, secondary controllers, etc) says right in there that they recommend it if you're trying to squeeze every last mhz you can for benching, etc. =)

Well, I did an extensive review of about 8 AMD coolers as well as the H50 and it came second to last in my testing, which I must say is not very scientific. But it does get the job done and does it well enough for you to overclock quite a bit. It also leaves a lot of space around the CPU area. In that test the Thermalright Arrow came out the best, followed by the Noctua NH D14 and then the Thermalright Ven X.

Comparing it to water cooling is not going to happen. Basically, a 240mm rad based setup for me has outperformed the NH D14 by 5 degrees at load on stock and about 8-10 on a 4ghz OC on a 965BE.

quite a bit different. Now it puts you between my 4.0 and 4.3 scores and the FSB, NB and CL is whats holding you back on maxmem. see if you cant get the CL to 6 that will make a world of difference.

But, I'm pretty sure I can't pickup any CPU cycles without picking up some more heat -- Without going to water.

If this ISN'T true according you your experience, perhaps asking for your help here would be smart.

Here's my screen save of the last run. I don't like to run Prime more then about 5~10 minutes, as it is just too stressing on my computer... And on my nerves.

Thanks for any help.

I'm still new to ASUS boards and their software, had a DFI previously. How do I get ProbeII to display in the same way yours does in the screenshot. Mine can only open in the AISuite tab. I'm thinking there is something wrong with the one I downloaded, the autotuning function isn't available either. I think this might have something to do with the Sempron 145 though.

Thanks

Nah, Awesome its because you are on THE EXTREME!

Heh, if you open up your Asus Suite II, then click on the toolbar and see monitor? Click that and click Sensors.

Its the same thing, just wrapped in a pretty package.

IF you must have the same, fortunately all of the Formula software works on our motherboard (but ours doesn't on theirs hehehehe.) you can go to usa.asus.com/formula and then start downloading the software you want.

I recommend their version of TurboV Evo as well if you overclock because you can save to BIOS from within Windows (credit goes to IOS, for that one.) Then just download PC Probe II is also available as a stand alone app for them.

Its just they tried real hard to integrate all of those applications into just one for us.

Would I be wrong to take my AMD 3.2 GHz. 6-core on the Asus Formula board to 4.2 GHz. per the following YouTube video? You will notice that in this very articulate video, they only take the 6-core to 4.0 GHz.


Please understand that I have asked some questions about performance increases as a result of overclocking (for Adobe Photoshop, Video Editing, Cryptography, etc.) not because I am being a Critical Troll but because I really do want to learn.

At the same time my goals are different from most of yours. While I can see that you're really having fun and learning a lot by pushing the envelope, my interests are more for performance increases that actually aid my productivity in business.

And that brings me to my final question: Can I take this 6-core from 3.2 GHz. to 4.2 GHz. AFTER installing my SSD's (2 X 80 GB Intel X25M) or do I risk damaging them? I will be using the Corsair H50 Liquid Cooling Unit, which several emails from Corsair (I posted one) confirm that I have actually installed properly.

Thanks guys!
