A8N32 owners take heed...

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Looks like this board overvolts your vcore by 0.6 on default settings, according to a competing site... Seems this might be the reason for unusually high temperatures out of the box. AMD recommends 1.3-1.35, whereas this board reads something around the region of 1.4.

Please correct if I'm wrong... Just trawling around when I found that little snippet of information.

Just up and running. Getting the new BIOS as I type. Just thought it was a useful bit of info for anyone who owns this thing.

thanks for the headsup, but i believe i'm running 1.35 on mine.

my failure to apply the correct amount of AS5 and properly reseating my HSF is what's causing my higher then normal CPU temperatures.

Bizzare, that's just weird. Well, lowered the voltage after the latest BIOS. Intriguing that Asus would ship their board undervolted or overvolted.

Oh, and rcantec... 1.55! That rocks dude. What temps you getting? I'm a little reticent to try that till I start testing the limits of the 4400+ processor, since I've heard the dual cores run a little hotter, too. Will be getting to that this weekend, when I've got a little more time.

Real good. You're lucky though... You don't live in a country where ambient temp is around 33-36 degrees all year round, like me. Best I've managed is 38 idle. About 45 load. Haven't even started OC'ing yet. Oh well. Time to buy an air conditioner.
