AMD Core - disabled
CPU BUS: 286

HT Link Auto
CPU Vol = 1.45
DRAM Voltage = 1.65

Drop that CPU BUS, you dont need it that high. 250 max. should be OK. Multi 16.
Set HT Link manually @ 2000, CPU/NB @ 2750-3000 / 1.30-1.35V.
Drop CPU volt a little and enable LLC(Auto shoud be good too)
You might need higher RAM volt than stock(+0.05V)

When I first installed my Formula, I remember seeing my NB in the low 50's. I finally decided on using HWMonitor Pro as my main "sensor monitoring" software and I am now seeing that I am around 37*C on my NB. This obviously has me wondering now... Why the reduction in temp? Could it be that the NB thermal pad needs some sort of a "burn in" period or maybe my temp monitoring software (old or present???) was off? My previous monitoring software was Everlast.

Any thoughts? I am not really worried other than maybe HWMonitor Pro having issues reading the proper temps at present. The CPU temp seems to be spot-on with the BIOS CPU temp reading as well as several other monitoring software.
I wouldn't trust any program but PC Probe II (made by ASUS) and you can run it for either the Formula/Extreme motherboards. You can never trust the 3rd parties to be accurate all the time, or know which sensor is being applied to which Chip. For the most part the CPU socket / core temps are always detected and thats about all you can expect to be correct. I know for a fact that HW Monitor detects NB but sometimes it detects SB and sometimes it does not for me.

You also probably don't have your CPU-NB frequency has high as some of us. I have mine at 3050 MHz. When it comes to Thermal pads, they only degrade over time. Now, that being said, it might be making better contact than perviously.

When we say overheating NB temp, we mean, temperatures out of control 60+c when being stressed. Prime95 Blend tests, video gaming, and other highly intensive memory + cpu utilizing applications are NB stressers. I myself, had a 71c NB yesterday, but I repeat there was no "factory" defect with my board. Mine was obviously mishandled before I got hold of it.

Take this with a grain of salt, I have never ever seen such shotty work from ASUS before. Nor did I have anything like this on my first board. As far as I can tell, they are the exact same revisions (002) manufactured at about the same time. The screw heads were tore up on the heatsink, the screws on the back were misaligned with the cavities/threads, the Thermal pads were dirty (with bits of hair) and chewed up, and the TIM was rock solid on the NB and SB. It was so dried it felt like wax and required scraping to come off. Inside the heatsink, the upper layer had absolutely no TIM or padding between and was solid metal on metal contact. I am not sure if it was designed this way, but I added some. That, and putting a fan blowing on the upper layer of the NB heatsink should keep thinks nice and cool even at very low RPMs. Although I can't prove this, I do not believe it left the factory like this, and in my previous post, mentioned it felt "used." Its hard to describe, stickers were everywhere, although I don't remember having to take any off to get the motherboard out of the "suitcase", but I just remember feeling like this had been definitely used before. I can't describe it other than it didn't feel brand new.

Here are some of the pictures:
Old Thermals 001


Old Thermals 002


Old TIM 003


HeatSink Bent Corner/Damage 004 (not caused by me, but I straightened it)


New Pads 005

Fresh Dab of Shin Etsu on NB / SB (old Thermal Pad on Lucid looked healthy)





Padding on the inside of the heatsink for better contact

I'm starting to think that my pump is not going at full speed with my ALC ECO cpu watercooler. Is there any way for me to confirm that with this board?

Where do you have the pump header plugged in at? Once you located the label, CPU Fan, OptFan, PwrFan etc, you then go into Bios and check the RPMs under "Hardware Monitor" for that matching label.

Thanks RaginCain.

I followed your suggestion on Probe II. I like it as a desktop display. Their temps are spot on with HWMonitor pro on all sensors so I know HWMonitor Pro is measuring off the same sensors. For long periods of time I like the logging feature of HWMonitor -BUT- for daily use, I will stick with Probe II. Good call my friend.

I am presently at the OC level from day 1 of my OC attempts and NB is barely reaching 39*C. I AM NOT COMPLAINING THOUGH! I do know that I have seen that at about 52*C at one point on this same mobo. Because of this I am led to believe that something has happened that has helped to dissipate the heat more efficiently. The only physical thing I have done was to tighten the heatsink screw with minimal force. One screw was rather loose now that I think about it. As I said... minimal tightening. Almost a "hand tightening" effort. Maybe it is worth checking. I have run a 7 1/2 hour Prime95 on blend and that NB has not increased above 41*C if I recall correctly.

Link it. The latest BIOS I see is the 1102 for the C4F. BIOS 1304 seems to have been a BIOS release in Aug/2010 for a different mobo (P7H55 - ?).

EDIT - Saw a post stating that it was taken down...

EDIT 2: Seems like they are available here though and in beta stage as of 1/10/11:
