At any rate, I didn't get a chance to update the BIOS last night, will try to get to it tonight. Once I get it and have a chance to fiddle a bit I'll update the OP.
Just so you know beware, these bios are messing with my ram. I cant adjust any timings now. I have to leave the timings on auto but I can change the speed just fine. If I adjust the timings at all it freezes at the windows boot logo like it would when I used the 47x multi on the old bios. I think I got a sweet spot though with my oc right now (for the cpu at least). I will post my settings when I get home. I tried 48 but it seems to take a lot more voltage so far, I will work at it later.
Update: Ok internal PLL is what was giving me issues with my ram I disabled it and everything is gravy. The settings Im posting are what I used for 47x multi that has been folding (had pll disabled while this was happening) for a little over 12 hours today.
BCLK Freqency: 100
Memory Frequency: Manually set
OC Tuner: DO NOT USE
EPU Power Saving Mode: Disabled
Turbo Ratio: 47
DRAM Timing Control: Manually set
CPU Power Management:
CPU Ratio: Auto
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology: Enabled
Turbo Mode: Enabled
Turbo Ratio: Auto
Additional Turbo Voltage: 0.096
All other settings leave on Auto
Offset Mode Sign: +
CPU Offset Voltage: 0.005
DRAM Voltage: 1.650v
VCCIO Voltage: 1.060v
PCH Voltage: 1.050v
Load-Line Calibration: Disabled (voltage spikes to over 1.4 if enabled)
CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled
This worked for me and proves very stable, working on 4.8 right now.Edited by nagle3092 - 1/26/11 at 7:52pm
