not bad man what cooler have you got?
flanker have : Cooler Master Hyper 212, but this isnt importan if you only validate CPU - no CPU load at all, no heat.
Anyway, nice OC , with my 940BE i can do only about +-4Ghz to validate, some super pis at 3.85, But Rock stable 3.65, and past 3.7GHz im still hitting wall maybe heat wall, maybe not
new record at 1M superpí and 32M (32M is not so good...)
superpí 32M: 17m 28.228s
That is very nice Flank3r! 2800mhz on the North Bridge at those speeds is truly awesome! How much do you have to tweak the voltages on your motherboard?
I prefer safe voltages with AIR, it meant for PII X4 max 1.55V for CPU and 1.475V for CPU-NB
CPU-Z show correct CPU voltage, for uncore (CPU-NB) i was set 1.425V, i can run NB with 3000 MHz, but its very unstable, only for Everest MEMORY test, not for superpi runs . Maybe with more voltages over 1.475V. 24/7 Stability i have 3915 MHz with 2680 MHz NB in X86 and 3855 MHz with 2650+ MHz NB in x64 system.
If someone interested what can this mobo do with PII940 and ATI4850 in 3Dmark06 ...

I Found also BIOS MOD for version F6 with DELL 2.1 SLIC - tested and working LINK
today night or tomorow il testing F6 BIOS and we will see, what is better, first must testing with F3 diferent voltages and max clock and than with F6. Compare coming soon here
my comparsion is only in max OC with low voltage 1.425V (defaults for most x4 965 BE, sometimes it is 1.4V-diferent from BIOS and MBs)
4152 MHz in F6
thanks for this comparison
Mine died, when it gets back from RMA its going on sale ha ha.
I never got a chance to run my 955be either : [ that's selling too.
So with that I depart the club XD
new my max AIR overclock
New bios up on GB site.
F7A 2009/11/26 Beta BIOS
Add CPU Core Control option
And what about overclocking, same changed it? To time i have as CPU number one x4 965 BE (955 BE is in my archiv )
I just played with it a little and no better overclock. I dont see any options for the core control either im guessing you need a quad to try. The ACC in auto sets differently tho.
Hello every body ! I am new in this forum and I have this motherboard.
And I would know where I can find this new beta bios because I don't found it in the gigabyte site.
I have as cpu the phenom 2 x4 940 oc @3.8ghz h24 with the F6 bios.
Edit : Finally I have find it here : http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/BIOS_DownloadFile.aspx?FileType=BIOS&FileID=15336
This bios could desactivate cores but I have not better oc (Max stable 3.8ghz with zalman cnps 10x extrem)
A crazy trick I learned with this board to get a better overclock on my 7750 cpu. If you understand what im saying give it a shot.
1st. I must set max overclock default multiplier.
2nd. I must set my desired overclock after setting with default.
The reason is I think it sets different drive strengths than if i would just load optimal defaults then set my desired first. If i don't set the max overclock on default cpu multi first and just set my desired overclock system is completely unstable. If i do what I just said it is completely stable.
Basically im too lazy to do but I could take a CPUZ screenshot with the same exactly clocks and voltages. Prime95 fail instantly. Then I could do what I just stated and have a Prime95 stable for hours on same overclock. Everything exactly the same in bios. If you ever feel you had a good stable overclock once and lost it this is probably why.
Im not crazy. But it works for me.
Ok I've tried to set max coefficient multiplier (7ghz) and without reboot load optimal default but when I reboot after that it's not better
