Wow, two days without a post here?
Here's results of the new Frankenstein AMD system, still to be put in its case, an old Compaq. Highest AMD scores I've gotten, even managed to Oc the RAM, 1600>1733.

I lost stability @ 4.6GHz for some reason. A new BIOS was just released so I flashed it and ran Aida64 again. Seems good again

UPDATE: 4.7GHz..Offset mode +0.085 (1.34v under load) LLC Level 1 CPU-Z

Very good Mark and low temps compared to what I've been reading about Ivy and heat. I too was gob smacked at how much smoother and faster the Dark Side gear works.

Here's a new result on my AMD Phenom II X6 rig. It is stable with the 1600 RAM OC'd to 1760 with IBT Standard test. Odd thing is Real Temp and Speccy won't read CPU temps now.

I have a real big question to ask I downloaded a MSI program called control center this has allowed me to up the voltage on my cpu and all but my problem is

I already adjusted settings in the Bios and the screen shot shows my settings

So if i have the v-core high in the bios wouldn't i be back slappin my self in the face if i adjust higher voltages here this is one of there over clocking tools but i am concerned about the previous bios settings

can someone shine some light on this possible someone who is familliar with this app ?

If it is safe and correct what my bios says then i can push this chip some more but i need to know something about this befor i go farting around ( yes i said farting )

Tommy, as a general rule, the only OS overclocking software that you should be using is for your GPU. OS bound Overclocking software is a known problem and can cause instability and failure. I would highly advise against it.

Tommy, we all fart around! All Windows apps that allow adjustment like volts, clocks etc are only effective while it runs within Windows. In other words after setting it up, and you'd close the program those setting will revert to your BIOS settings.
ASUS has one, AI Suite, and can be used to change stuff, check what all it changes and then go to BIOS to make it permanent. Does that help?

EDIT: I agree with James too. You can use OC software but they can cause BSODs easily. Make tiny changes and run some stability tests, Furmark, Intel Burn Test (works on AMD too) etc.
