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.
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.Edited by mikezachlowe2004 - 1/18/12 at 9:00pm
