So no Multiplier OC then? Guess you didn't go higher than 211 then?
Well, it has a stock VID of 1.45v (believe it or not - lost the CPU lottery on that one), so I've really never pushed it hard even when it was in a top-of-the-line ASUS motherboard. 4.0 Ghz was it. I could OC it with the multiplier if I wanted to use AMD Overdrive. I was just curious to see if bumping the FSB a little was possible in the ECS BIOS... and it was. I may continue bumping it upwards to its limit @ 1.45v sometime soon.
I flashed the board with the latest bios again, but with the .CAP file. Then put the cmos clear jumper to clear, removed the battery, left for a minute, put back the jumper in normal position and put the cmos battery. Still CPU Multi doesn't work but NB Frequency/Voltage works properly, will allow me to change the NB frequency.
So with base clock OC I am at 240 HTT with NB and HT at 2160.
I am guessing the multi change will work only on FX CPUs?
dude, sorry I didn't mean to post a blunt comment.
Anyway with HTT clocking, occasional crashing at 240, but did 20 runs of IBT testing with stock volts and only increasing NB volt by .01. Board is stable with video card mining too(ofcourse video card does all the work).
hmm may be have to cancel my RMA?
YAY! Clock Multiplier Works!!!!
But only with a FX processor. Put in the FX 4130 and changed the multi to 20 and it booted right away at 4 Ghz. So Dumb ECS coded expecting only a FX processor will be used on the board!!
check out other thread
Yowzas, board is $75 now?? That escalated quickly!!!
lol - yeah I noticed that. If I had bought it at that price (which is more or less what its been since release) I would have been a little disappointed.
They need to fix the Bios over voltage issue, other than that its going strong for me.
I need to take my out of the case, get the serial number and submit a ticket for the lack of multiplier adjustment on Phenom IIs and see if they'll allow lowering the voltage (like every other motherboard). Really needs a BIOS update.
ECS is awesome, it took a week and a half but they sent me an updated BIOS where they fixed it, for the 990FX board however.
