    Double thanks, before now my 555 BE was only stable as a tri-core at stock; now I'm 25 mins. into stress test as a quad on stock :D

    Shall be OC'ing soon (hopefully)

    Improve system stability indeed!

    EDIT:
    Stable as a stock quad, unstable OC'ed. Oh well.

    I'm a stock voltage man, prefer comfy volts.
    I'm trying different settings, gonna see what happens. Anyone else getting noticable differences after using this BIOS?

    I'm hesitant to move to this bios since I've been rock solid stable for so long now. Unless I see a lot of people needing lower voltages or something, I'll stick with 0905 for now. :)

    OR it could have an adverse affect. IMO its not worth the risk.

    you can flash back if you want right?

    Of course. But it takes a lot of work to get a stable OC. If you already have one that you are happy with why push it ya know? Is 10MHz going to make that much of a difference for the BSODs you will get in the process of achieving it?

    I'm going for it. I'll let you all know if there is a problem. I've never had an issue with a bios upgrade. Maybe I've just been lucky.

    I love this new Bios, first thing I've noticed is the voltage don't fluctuate like it used to.

    The CPU with LLC enabled would still bounce around ( not as bad as when on) but now even with LLC disabled it sits right where I set it in the bios...

    I'm like Erocker, I've had such great luck using the 0905 bios and was skeptical trying the new bios... It's a win win for sure... :pimp:

    1005 is a sure winner IMO

    But hey, dont like it... flash back... it's not hard too :p

    Usually a new update yeilds a bit more then a 10mhz bump MM...

    With it comes better voltage control... all my time clocking I find a cpu has its sweet spot for voltage.

    This x6 likes 1.45v to run 4.2-4.4GHz with minor tweaks... If I set the volt one notch higher my CLOCK FAILS!!!!! (not due to heat) I blame it on the voltage ramping up over 1.45v... I can see it with CPU-Z
    If a bios can tighten voltage then intern one can expect lower temp's right! ;)

    Call me crazy but the proof is in the puddin my man. ;)

    I'm still waiting for a job to run - hunting down dupes on 4T and 4M+ files I guess takes a while. Too bad this sucker doesn't multi thread, but WTF, it's freeware so I can't really bitch. Hopefully will be able to flash later tonight or early tomorrow.

    What is that?
     
  16. twilyth Guest

    Just my short hand. I have 2 2terabyte drives that are about 80% identical. One of them (Samsung) has to be RMA'd. But I don't know which one has the latest version of which files. So I have to run this freeware program (fast duplicate file finder) on both drives to tell me which files to delete.

    It says there are over 4 million files total, which sounds bogus, but why would it lie to me?

    Anyway, it's been running for over 24 hours and from the last time I tried this (had to abort), it should be done either tonight or tomorrow.

    Hey guy's, I've been testing all day and this clock has been 100% stable.

    The new Bios has given the ability of the CrossH4 to run the cpu voltage lower then before on the same clock's.

    I needed 1.5+ volts to be stable on the old 0905 Bios..

    One other thing... I have never been able to clock the Mem/Nb as high and be all day stable @ 3.2+ghZ :pimp:

    I love this Bios! :rockout:
