Haven't been on the forum for a while, so I figured I'd check this thread again (all those emails, haha). Anyway, thanks a bunch to all who posted about the faulty chip, new bios, windows updates and all that stuff, I've downloaded it all and found out there's a new AI suite in the process as well. I've given rep to all of you guys, thanks biggrin.gif

My new bios chip just arrived. The guy delivered it at 8pm. I didnt know fedex ran that late. I thought that was kind of weird.

Anyway, going to install now. I will keep you guys up to date on any changes that may occur. I'll let you know how it goes.

HEy Mike,

Wanted to know why they sent again because I was having some funny voltage issues, I set LLC to ultra high on cpu and at idle it couldnt keep the bios set voltage, then when under prime it took a little before it went .02v over what I set. Maybe the bios chip is for all the high power draw amd cpu's like 1100/8150? Rather than mostly BD?

I want to make a call to asus tomorrow but want to hear from you first.

Thanks

Thats what the ultra high llc setting is supposed to do. It is supposed to hold the bios setting voltage while at idle and then under load it should increase about .01-.02v. Mine doesnt do that at ultra high. It increases voltage .03-.06v on ultra high which is actually like the extreme setting. When i set to extreme its the same thing. So its like I have to extreme settings and no ultra high settings. Thats why i called asus in the first place.

Also, my cpu/nb llc was set to extreme no matter what I set it to. Regular and High setting increase cpu/nb voltage about .02-.05v when under load which shouldnt happen. That should only happen under extreme. So with cpu/nb llc its like i have 3 extreme settings and no regular or high settings.

Both of these reasons is why i called asus in the first place to let them know about their bios but it turned out that its my bios chip that is faulty for BD.

Yours is working the right way if it is increasing .02v when cpu llc is set to ultra high.

I see what yours was doing. I think you missed that mine wont hold the bios set voltage at idle, but then under load does add a little like it should. Weird part it that it only happens when Im around 4300mhz. At my normal 4244mhz its ok. I will see what asus says. I went for a go at 4317mhz or so thinking that my extreme llc setting might have been too aggressive and thats when I noticed at idle using ultra high it didnt maintain the bios setting, was set at 1.465 (or so) and was at 1.445v. Its not really a problem to me but if asus has a fix for it Im interested. Since day 1 with this motherboard I couldnt match the 4277mhz I could get stable on my msi 890fxa-gd70, so needed to settle for 4244mhz since.

Just wanted to show you guys. With the new bios chip the cpu and cpu/nb llc is working correclty. Also, my system is a lot more stable. I can run 5.0Ghz at 1.55v which i couldnt do without at least 1.575v. Also my temps are a lot lower than before too. I dont know how a bios chip could do so much by i am very pleased. I have class at 7:30am tomorrow so I got to get to bed but heres a screen shot of what i just ran. I know its not that long of a run but before with these settings it would last a minute. Definitely much more stability and temps are like 8C lower. Boggled my mind. I will do more testing tomorrow and let you know how it goes. But this is it for now. I did a quick run in cinebench and didnt see a change but I will do some more tomorrow. Thanks guys. Hope this helps some with this chip and board.

338

EDIT: Actually this is kind of weird. It seems that the cpu/nb llc is not working correctly or maybe it is. The voltage on ai suite shows that the voltage is jumping up to 1.488-1.492v when I have set to regular and high but when I run prime when llc set to regular it fails but when i run with llc set to high, its stable. Maybe its working but showing me the same voltages.

Does anyone know if there is another program that i can use to monitor the cpu/nb? Otherwise ill have to hook up multimeter to board and see how its showing on there. Cant do it till tomorrow though. system is definitely running more stable though and temps are a whole lot better for some reason. I dont know but im not going to complain.

If you guys have any suggestions, they're greatly appreciated. Hope this helps other people who have this board and fx chip. Let me know how it works out for you cause i can defintely tell a difference in stability and temps with new bios chip. Also the bios chip came with 1003 bios on it just to let you know. I updated to 1102 though. CPU LLC is working perfect now. Still unsure about the CPU/NB LLC. It seems that its working seeing that i am getting stable in prime with it set to high and its not stable when set to regular even though ai suite shows voltage jumping up just as much on both settings.

Will do more testing tomorrow and let you know how it goes. Hope this help some of you.

I see what you're saying. What program are you using to monitor cpu voltage. Cause i know with ai suite ii that it sometimes shows that it drops like and its because it fluctuates in large increments and might show a big drop when really its not that much at all. If you havent already i would try another program like hwmonitor to watch your voltage and see what it says. Or if you have a multimeter, hook it up to your board and see what that says. It seems weird that it would only be at a certain clock like your saying. Do some more testing and let me know how it goes. Good luck. Hope i could help some.

I was using asus ai suit, I will use hwmonitor next. Nice to see the new chip helped you out so much too!
