How is that 30nm RAM working out for you? Have you been able to confirm the overclocking claims made about this brand?

3 - Should I pay attention to CPU temp or Core temps?
4 - Are there any overclocking guides as it has been a while since I worked with AMD?
5 - Whats the max voltage on water?
6 - What's the best bios?
7 - Anyone use an EK MB block? I tried, but it gave me issues like it was shorting something out and if I use paper spacers under the posts, then I do not get good contact with the VRM or NB.
8 - Is there any benefit to overclocking using FSB versus increasing the multiplier?
Thanks

In no particular order.

  • I've read a number of times that HT Bus should be left at 2000MHz.
  • I'm running my NB up at 2760MHz right but would like to push it higher once I get the CPU watercooled.
  • General consensus is to keep Core temps under 60C although I've also heard that 70C is an okay top limit.
  • Best BIOS is usually the latest. I'm version 13 myself, latest from Asus website.
  • I'm a firm believer in using FSB to overclock in addition to using the multiplier. I'm running at 250MHz right now. The big caveat here is that BIOS will overreact to voltage setting Auto feeding way more power to the CPU and NB than actually needed, so make these adjustments with care on manual.
  • I have my sights set on one of the newer Swiftech water blocks.


Are you really running your Snipers up at 2133MHz PRime95 stable? If yes, can you state your settings and any other special accommodations made, please?

2600 NB
running 8-8-8-18 1720MHz 1.45v
it's limited by my cpu imc but that's pretty good coming from 9-9-9-27 1600Mhz 1.7v
i recommend it

though it is very picky on voltage. it is unstable +/- 1 tick from 1.45

Actually, with the AMD setup I am only running them at 1866Mhz currently. I need to tweak them, but they were running at 2133Mhz on my SB setup since that is what they are rated at. As far as water blocks go, I have the Swiftech now, but I was talking about the NB/VRM EK block. You will like the Swiftech, I also like the Koolance 370S AMD block which is what I run on my Sabertooth. As far as HT goes, I thought I read 3000Mhz was ideal on BD for overclocking, but I was not sure. I will try FSB overclocking and see if I can get 4.8Ghz stable. I actually got it to boot at 5Ghz, but didn't have the time to tweak to make it stable.

Thanks for the responses.

I just finished building a new AMD rig using the Crosshair V formula - this board is great, so far really happy with it and looking forward to see how high I can OC my FX-8150

Here is the build log I started:

Does anyone have the 9911, 9913, or 9920 bios they can give me?

So I just got this board a couple weeks ago and loving it. I tried joining the club by sending a pm as suggested but don't see my name up there yet. Let me know if there is something else I need to do. As my sig suggest I am on a Phenom II 965 and I feel well overdue for an upgrade for folding. Saving for the next one now but until then can someone suggest the the best bios for the 965. I didn't realize until today that there was beta bios available. I flashed the 1301 bios as soon as I started up the machine. I am open to using stable beta drivers if they are any better for me right now. What would you all suggest for me?

Hi guys, I tried using turbo v to oc my CPU most of the way and then dial it in after, I set the volt to 1.35 on the CPU and 1.3 on the cpunb and lowered ram n ht in bios and got the CPU all the way upto 3.9ghz I know I can get this to 4ghz

Do I need to change anymore voltages in the bios as I left the others at auto

Id stay with the 1301 it has been the best for me. I have an FX though so I couldn't say for sure, alot of the Phenom users swear by the earlier Bios. I had a 965 when I first got this board and started with the 0705 bios And have used everyone since, including the betas. Ive not had any problems with any Bios so far. I switched to the FX around the 1003.bios BTW the Rog forum also has some good advice regarding this board http://rog.asus.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?117-Crosshair-Series-Motherboards15-Rampage-Series-Motherboards
