I might have to try that when I get back from class, something to keep in mind.

Raising the BCLK also raises the frequency of everything else…USB, SATA, PCIe - so that could be your trouble.

After some more tweaks I was able to run 5GHz for 30 min in ADIA64 Stress test but I was not liking the temps I was reaching. 91C peak kinda scared me so I stopped. This is the first Intel machine I’ve had since the original Pentium so I’m unfamiliar with what is safe and what is not. Perhaps someone can comment on that. Don’t want to jack your thread so I’m going to create a new one with my settings.

Good luck and post your findings.

Your good there. And yeah, rasing the PCI frequency can has drastic results. Try to keep them at 100MHz.

Does the BIOS not have a setting to manually set/lock the PCI speed?

Just got to this:


I am going to try bumping the voltage a little to see if I can get it a bit higher.

Nice!

I forgot to mention that I also updated the BIOS to 1204 which is the latest on the Asus site.

I think I have 1204, but I downloaded it and will double check.
Turns out I have 1503 the beta BIOS.

What's the max voltage on that chip?

BTW here's my new toy.... Which ATI 6950?

1.5 is max recommended, but if you have good cooling (i.e, NOT aircooled), then you can push a little more.

This was about the highest I could get it. It seemed to be stable at 4.6 with almost 1.5V, but that was way higher than I wanted, so I turned it back down. Even with 1.5V the chip still stayed cool though.


Anything higher than that, and Windows BSoDs before reaching the login screen.

That's impressive. Enjoy, but try not to fry.
