    Well, it can't hurt, right? :p
    I know it doesn't help much, it only drops the temps ~1c, but that's better than nothing if I can get it to work

    Yeah, it can hurt. If you're at the lowest stable notch in the BIOS and you're trying to fine-tweak it even lower, you're really pushing yourself to the very edge of the cliff of stability, with a strong wind blowing...

    Also, what if you happen to make a miscalculation while crunching or folding? What if you make the problem you were trying to solve worse by sending in bad units? Sado say, measure twice, cut once.

    LOL nice pic :D
    At the lower voltage, it passes 24 hours of LinX and Prime95 Blend, so I'll assume it's stable, but I guess I'll just leave it as-is so I know I don't have any issues (I've been running it at 3.4ghz/1.28v since the day I got it)

    Exactly how far apart are the voltage settings in your BIOS?

    .075. So stock it's 1.35, I set it to 1.275 in the BIOS, 1.2 = instant fail even at 3ghz, it runs perfectly stable at 1.24v.

    I know, it's a shitty board, I picked it up for $60 shipped from Newegg, but now I have a job so it is due for a replacement next (or maybe GPU). Current plan is a 790FX-GD70

    Yeah, I would just leave it set to 1.275 in the BIOS

    Will do, I don't want to damage the X4 955, even if I do plan on replacing it with an X6. I'm still very happy with my OC/UV and the new temps on the H50, so I'll deal :rolleyes:

    You can do this to have them boot at these settings. Under MISC.

    THANK YOU! Now I can also have AMD overdrive set the fans at 100%, but retain the ability to change them if I want (vs just setting them to 100% in BIOS)

    I tried mounting the H50 as exhaust instead of intake, with the side panel off it made no difference and with it on temps went up 5c! So it's staying as intake
    I also tried loosening/tightening the WB setup, which had no effect

    I may be getting a new cruncher onboard for us. My father (WCG: mpresler) said that he might be willing to switch, as he doesn't care what team he's part of.
    AlienIsGOD, KieX, mjkmike and 4 others say thanks.
