i've been relating the temperature of the mcp to the cpu-nb minor/major fault in my logic . i guess what i meant to ask is what are your mcp temps with running a 3000 cpu-nb hope that is clearer tmpin1 and mcp both seem to represent the northbridge temps i am only running aida64 what application should i run to monitor tmpin1 to see if the temps coincide. .... lol

We're all human and we all make mistakes, so you're definitely not a fool thumb.gif

I use CPUID HWMonitor to monitor my temps and voltages: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
It shows the real time value and both min. and max. values, which is ideal for monitoring Vdroop biggrin.gif

The values do not coincide although the values for the cmp are the northbridge temp and the tmpin1 represents a nb temp i can conclude since the tmpin1 temp is lower than the cpu temp to the point it is arount the heat of a cpu core it may represent the cpu-nb which is the memory controller inside the cpu which relates to the northbridge. these are only my conclusions and are not solid fact

oc reference table just a basis to see what our chips can do this is why i am shooting for 4.2
post #465 of 611
nice sheet...no 975(be) on there. i think im switching back to my 965be for the long run. seems it likes to be oc'd more so than the 975

I've ended up settling for 3.8Ghz at 1.5v bios (1.4v load) with CPU-NB at 2600Mhz/1.25v

I've also discovered this little gem PhenomMSRTweaker (thanks to m0n4g3 from OCAU): http://phenommsrtweake.sourceforge.net/

Pretty much it's a windows based Cool'N'Quiet where you can set up 5 performance stages/states called 'P-States'. P0, P1, P2, P3, P4 with 0 being highest performance, and 4 being lowest.

Mine are set as below:

P0 - 3.8Ghz: 1.5v/1.25v (CPU/NB) - load brings vcore down to ~1.4v
P1 - 3.4Ghz: 1.4v/1.25v (CPU/NB) - load brings vcore down to ~1.3v
P2 - 2.4Ghz: 1.2v/1.25v (CPU/NB) - load brings vcore down to ~1.1v
P3 - 1.6Ghz: 1.1v/1.25v (CPU/NB) - didn't check load
P4 - 0.8Ghz: 0.8v/1.1v (CPU/NB) - didn't check load

what cpu are you running?

im stable @ 4.1GHz on my 965BE without any voltage tweaks.
post #468 of 611
i can boot to at least 4.3, but prime95 crashes...need to add volts.
post #469 of 611
Mine was a 965 also, all those settings were Prime stable by the way.

Hi, I haven't been around for a while because I was moving house.

As I have previously stated, the load Vcore is around 0.1V less than the BIOS figure, this is the Vdroop on the board.

Therefore to achieve the 1.475V Vcore required for a decent overclock, the BIOS needs to be set to 1.575V.

Remember that with this board because of Nvidia chipset, achieving high overclocks of over 4Ghz are going to be near impossible.

I am still having issues with CPU/NB voltage, at one point manually setting it was working, then next boot, it wasn't again.

Due to issues in gaming, that are not showing up while stress testing with anything, including prime 95, Intel Burn Test and OCCT, I have reduced my CPU/NB down to 2640, I can stress test for hours with the CPU/NB at 3000Mhz plus but still the issues when gaming occur.

The AUTO CPU/NB voltage for 2640 is 1.35V and as stated before, I can't seem to manually change this, god knows why! I feel that this is too much voltage especially on a 1090T, the X4 may need a little more volts on CPU/NB than the Thubans.

The BIOS is working very strangely at the minute, all the options for the Turbo core are missing, next boot they might be back, I think this Second hand board is very flaky!

3.96Ghz is the absolute limit for the 1090T that I have but that was the same on another board, so the chip itself is limited at that, 1,2, or 3 cores will always fail beyond that.

I can report that the Crucial Ballistix tactical tracer RAM is still working like a charm at 1760Mhz at 8-8-8-24 1T with 2 x 4GB installed, cracking RAM! (1.65V).

What I am largely unsure about is that in the manual it states that the overvoltage jumper in default position is good for voltages up to 1.55V, I am assuming that this is BIOS voltage and not the Vdroop voltage, therefore I feel that to achieve the necessary 1.575V (BIOS) to give 1.475V Vcore then the jumper will have to be moved to its overclock position.

I am not sure why this is the case again on this board, on the M4N72-e I had previously the Overvoltage jumper only needed to be moved to get beyond 1.6V BIOS. Why a higher end board is configured like this is beyond me!


I am gonna try a CMOS clear and re flash to the latest 1301 BIOS and try to start again. I am concerned that using easy flash from the BIOS is not actually flashing the BIOS at all.

This is a very strange board and I think mine is stranger than most given the CPU/NB issue.

I was looking at a Sabertooth 990FX instead but would lose the native support for my HDD that requires the old fashioned non SATA connection.
