    Default back to 939!

    I was running a Xeon E3110 / QX6850, P5Q Pro, 8GB DDR2 1066 RAM, HD4870, and my motherboard died!

    back to a classic setup!

    Rig is in my profile thing!


    When I ran 939 years ago, I didn't know how to overclock, and now that I'm finally OCing it, I'm impressed!

    went straight to 2.7ghz without a hitch.


    Now, for a question, does anyone know a safe temp for my motherboard? A8N32 SLI-Deluxe.

    When I open the Asus Probe, it pops up with a warning past 45c, but I don't know that that's the max safe temp. Does anyone know what is?

    Thanks.

    This is why I was gone for a while, if anyone was wondering. Went through 3 computers in the last week scrambling to get good parts.

    I know this won't hit 4.7 on air like my xeon, but damn does it feel good to be back with AMD.

    wow, hit a MAJOR wall. posted this on a couple other forums, so im going to post it here; maybe someone will know how to help!


    So, my computer at 2.7ghz and about 1.45v had a random shutdown, and it wouldn't boot again at its current (ex-current) settings.

    I tried to change my HT frequency, nothing happened. I lowered my RAM divider, nothing. I upped voltages, nothing. It wouldn't boot. It had a few more shutdowns, and then it hit "cannot read DATA" errors.

    I then tried to enter BIOS, and it was completely unusable, filled with all sorts of symbols. I reset CMOS and had some more issues trying to get it to boot, but I got it running at a measly 2.6ghz.

    I'm running:
    Athlon 64 X2 4400+ (110w version, 11x multi)
    A8N32 SLI-Deluxe
    610w PCPower+Cooling 610w
    eVGA 8800GT Superclock
    4x512MB RAM sticks (DDR333-400)

    Does anyone know what causes this issue? What does the BIOS symbol stuff mean (aside from something being seriously ****ed up)? It's currently up and running, but I really would like to go to at least 2.9 and be stable.

    Any ideas on how to get past this and get on with the OCing?

    Also, any ideas on the maximum safe temp for the NF4 chipset? Asus Probe flashes an alarm and makes an annoying noise when it goes past 45c.

    Thanks.

    From what I understand, 60C is acceptable for NF4. The alarm may be set to trigger at 45C so the BIOS may allow you to change that to a higher temp, check around for that. Try removing the chipset fan and slap on some good thermal paste, that should help drop temps a bit.

    I was thinking of doing that, wasn't sure of whether or not it'd help. I think I'll do that tomorrow. Thanks for the temp info.
