I've read the guide and tbh i cant make head nor tale of it, all i can see is i have to mess around with my ram, thats the bit thats getting me, i know about the vcore and multipliers etc it's just messing with the ram, why can it stay on auto??
Hey man, thanks i tried doing that but it's overheating on everything lol.
I've put it back to stock and im gonna prime95 it and see what it's doing... @ 9% load it's avging abour 54deg... it's not the case temp cos thats fairly low cold to the touch... im thinking maybe the thermal paste isnt doing its job... what do you guys think?
I did a bit of digging and there was a post from last year where a guy was having the same trouble, apparently they dont work well together the nvidia chipset is pants for 45nm chips! This is NOT good lol. This was done last year though so last night i updated my BIOS to 1406 in hope they've fixed something within the last 3 bios releases lol.
yeah my old E4300 or w/e it was (the 2.44ghz one) was perfectly fine. Yeah it's clipped in correctly. I noticed the bios 1403 upped the compatability with the E8 chips so we'll see tonight when i get back. I might just put my Akasa AK-961 fan in if i can be bothered to get some artic silver hehe.
Forgot to mention it was idling at about 50deg going through to 80deg at which point i stopped the load. It actually reset twice before i changed the bios. the ventilation isnt the best but it's got plenty of fans in the case so it's pretty cool.
