Default Re: New m/board (large image inside)

Dammit! There's a page 1. I didn't see it. Ignore my questions, I'm going to assume they're answered on the first post.

edit: Oh yeah the i7. I would love to get my hands on that 965. I don't know who's responsible for this, but someone in this forum turned me into an Overclock enthusiast.

edit2: You get a very nice jump in clocks by raising the VCore so little. My relationship is pretty much linear. 100Mhz ~ .1 on the VCore. There's a lot of OC'ing options on this motherboard so I'm confused on what to do. This was my first OC. I was really hoping I could reach the 3.5Ghz mark, but it's been a struggle. The SB600 seems to reject the 1.65V I'm pumping in there. I tried a variation with higher CPU Freq. over multiplier and that resulted in clearing the CMOS. I'm going to attempt 1.6V and see if I can break 3.45Ghz. I kind of regretting getting an AMD though. This processor running at an OC'ed speed got outdone by my dad's laptop running a 2.4GHz Dual-Core (not familiar with laptop CPU naming) in the 1M Super-Pi by 9 seconds...

I was running my E3110 at 500*8 for 4.0GHz, there's a thread here somewhere where worshipme and I posted our E3110 overclocks.

@ Joga, what's the max vcore those things can take.

The processor? I'm not sure. My motherboard can supposedly pump out 1.65V. I'm running 1.55V right now (1.35V + .2V [from the little booster thing option, I forget what it is called]).

edit: It may be called the CPU Voltage regulator. It has options for [startup]. [+ 0.10], [+ 0.20], and [+ 0.30].

mmmmmm, might be a good idea to find out, you don't want to fry it, 1.6V seems awfully high (well, it is for an Intel chip anyway)

AMD website information


Says 1.30-1.35V. I've tested mine stable for 5 hours on Prime95. Am I running a big risk here?

edit: Hold on, that's the wrong revision.
edit2: Fixed the link. VCore range seems to be the same. Max temperature is 68C, under full load I reach 52C so I'm well under.

You'll significantly lower its lifetime with electrical migration I'd say, with 45nm Intel chips that have a spec of 1.365V it is widely accepted that 1.40V is the max and with the 65nm chips 1.50V was the widely accepted norm for 24/7 with air cooling.

I honestly don't know with AMD chips, perhaps you should make a thread and ask the others on here.

EDIT: I've asked the question on another overclocking forum, will let you know the answers.

EDIT: Hey Joga, got a reply from another forum, it appears I may have been correct about your 1.6V

Aim for 3.2 to 3.3 on GOOD air for an avg chip and the 1.4-1.45v range
