Addendum 2: Odd. My CPU Vcore is the one that has +x.xxx V, while my CPU-NB Over Voltage is the one with the straight number. Is it backwards in mine? Should I set my Over Voltage to 1.400, then my Vcore to Auto?

I don't know the exact setup of your bios, but in mine you have one section (custom p-states maybe?) where you set vcore, then another place where you set the rest of the voltages, including a +x.xxx for cpu voltage. It is in there that you set DRAM and other voltages, so those would be "regular" numbers.

DO NOT SET OVERVOLT TO 1.4!!! That would be vCore + overvolt... dangerous!

Here's the curious thing. The lowest I can set my Over Voltages to is 1.200 V. And its color-coded, as well. If I got up to, say, 1.500 V, it will display yellow, and much higher than that, it'll go red. My BIOS seems to think 1.400 V Over Voltage is okay.

Alright, I did find a Custom P-States setting. When I enabled it, I got six more settings. Core FID, ore VID, Core DID, NB VID, NB FID, and NB DID. It looks like Core VID is set to 1.4000 V. Would that be my Vcore?

EDIT: I also found a setting called SVID Override. It's set to Disabled, but i can put it anywhere between 0.800 to 1.500. Would that be anything important for me to adjust, or just leave it disabled?

What RAM are you using with it? The ones in your sig?
I believe AM3 is meant to be used with DDR3, right?

AM3 CPUs are backwards-compatible with DDR2 memory, but only AM3 CPUs can use DDR3 memory, if I understand correctly.

I know the first part is true, at least, because I have an AM3 board that was made with DDR2 slots. It doesn't support DDR3 at all.

AM3 boards only run DDR3.
The whole point of socket AM3 is ddr3.

Normally you can use AM3 processor in AM3 and AM2+ socket but you can't use AM2+ processor in AM3 socket. Thats how its supposed to be.

If you can run DDR2 then its a AM2+ socket motherboard.

Well, regardless, does it matter if my board is AM3 or AM2+?

And I'm still stuck. I'm no overclocker, and all this business with having to manually set voltages just to get my processor to work is too much for me...

It might be a good idea to contact Biostar tech support through the website Biostar.com/tw. I have contacted them twice about small issues and in both cases they got back to me quickly. Explain your issue to them and they will email you back. The last time I contacted then they got back to me within hours.

I couldn't get it to work properly using fball922's suggestions, but I contacted their customer support today. Hopefully they already know a resolution to the issue. If not, I'm buying a new board...

i thought i was ordering a hdz965fbk4dgm from new egg.after i ordered i noticed it was a hdz965fbgmbox.i then did some research at a site called cpu-upgrade.com.both these chips are the same thing.i'm pretty sure.there listed in the same box under the descriptions of it.i think one number is for the oem chip and the othors for the retail box.i hope i'm right.new egg said i was to late to cancel order.
