What board do you have?
Dfi Lp Dk 790gx-m2rs
Sweet I have the same board. So it does PII out of the box?
Also I made this for you
Yes, make sure to grab the newest bios :http://dfi.com/portal/CM/cmproduct/...g=false&action=e&windowstate=normal&mode=view
Helps out a lot.
Thanks for the sig picture, I will update mine with it. Good luck with your build and let me know if you need any help.
Forgot I didn't post an overclock haha
Wow I feel dumb now, please don't vote me out of the club for my extreme level of dumbness haha.
Anyway Phenom II 920
Highest clock 3.71Ghz @1.472v (stock cooler)
Current stable clock 3.5Ghz @ 1.456v (the voltage can be lowered but haven't worked it yet)
Just for fun/curiosity clock 3.3Ghz using 372Mhz HT Bus speed (makes it to windows even with 10*372 but I need more volts to get it stable).
I use only air cooling and finally put my Xigmatek HDT S-1283 back on after testing only with the stock heatsink/fan combo. All is pretty much awesome so far.
P.S. (very late)
In order to get the memory sticks to run at 1150Mhz you have to overclock them using whatever way you want to. AMD only officially supports 1066Mhz on a Phenom so everything over that is an overclock. These chips just come officially overclockable by Patriot to the speed of 1150Mhz thus they're advertised that way. All of the manufacturers do that when it comes to speeds like that.
Can I use this?
Hey do you know how to lower the memory multi? I want to make it so my 245 bus doesn't run my memory at such high speeds as it requires a lot of voltage..
Well I guess but I can just make you a separate unique one.
on the K9A2 i believe it is under advanced chipset settings
set it to 800 or 667 whatever you want.
what BIOS are you on? 1B3 is the best on the V1 K9A2 platinum i dont know about the V2 to tell the difference V1 has an ESATA port V2 does not
I am on a DFI 790GX dude lol I tried looking but I can only do DDR400 - 533.. it's kinda weird.
Sure! Could you add my name, and a AMD and ATI logo?
Whatever you think looks awesome.
crap who was i thinking of that had a K9A2,,,, ugh
oh well. review i read listed the option as 266-533 (double for rate so 533 to 1066)
under genie BIOS
set "timing mode" to wanted spec
It is under genie bios, memory timings under the main screen, set to manual, then ddr2 667 if you want to underclock the ram.
im pretty sure i have 3.8 stable but i cant boot in to vista any higher than that, and aod only lets me get 1.450 volts ,
Is this a decent score for my setup?
I say that is a great score, have you stress tested it?
i dont really know wich one i should use, The one on AOD is Total fail, prime95?
OCCT, you can get it here: http://www.ocbase.com/perestroika_en/index.php?Download
Prime95 is too hard on the power components so I have been told.
Here's my new 940BE. This is about an hour into playing with it. The Asus probe voltage is correct. This Asus board has a bit too much vdroop for my liking.
OCCT is just as hard on components, trust me.
=] i downloaded The old AOD and i can manipulate my voltages the way i want, but 3.8 is occt and prime stable
Can you please post a screenie of cpu-z and OCCT at 3.8 stable?
I second that, I am curious as to what voltages are needed to be stable.

Well my system is out for a while.(Kinda) Well early this morning my new Cooler Master Storm Sniper case came in today and it is for my PII case and my HAF is housing my older rig. Well before I left to go to my grandparents I was removing everything the fan broke. So I am RMAing my 4850X2 and then selling it and then buying 2 4870's. So now I am having to use my 9600GT in my PII rig. Its sucks so bad.
Hey.. Just think of it this way. None of my games are running worth a crap on my Semperon
