    Sorry I never try the development versions, I always worry about stability. But I'll bump the thread in case this is a worthy upgrade.

    The time it takes to update to a new version that does nothing is time that could have been better spend letting the version you currently have crunch :laugh:

    Thx for the input regarding the 64 bit version. I will give the 32 bit two more days and then install the "beta" version for comparison. If it fails (to often) I will step down one version.

    Ewwww! my Biostar 790gx a2+ turned its feet at the sky today, most probably. it just gave me an "Abnormal: CPU / Chipset error." LED code (meaning, no leds are on, just the fans and the HDD spin, but no other powering on sounds are to be heard).
    And it started with that, just after i changed the Command Rate from 1t to 2t?
    I literally TORTURED this board, with 1.7v on an x2, with 1.5v on an x955...for years!:laugh: it even ran with a blewn cap, and that fairly well! i even removed the damaged cap yesterday, and fitted exactly the same cap, i had as spare part from an old socket A board. neithertheless, no change!:( i also tried to rescue it with an amiboot.rom, but the usb drive, does not even blink once. anyone ever had a board die in a such unrealistic way? loosening of the ram timings? is there still hope, or can i hang it on the wall?:laugh:

    Before you put it out to pasture, did you remove the battery for a few minutes, hit the power button with the batt out, put it back, then try again?

    I have noticed that my Vcore is dropping from 1.176 to 1.164 (1%, I know, big deal right :laugh:) while WCG is running 100% load. Did not always do this, thinking it may be from the heat. I'm not sweating it as there have been no crashes or failed WUs, just wanted to know if anyone else has seen something like this before.

    Oh, my VTT drops from 1.12 to 1.11 too. Odd because changing from 1.11 to 1.12 is what got me stable OCCT 2h30m, still no crashing or anything though.

    Thanks!

    mine started doing the same thing since it has been hotter. I am thinking its just because of the PWM running hotter and also could be PSU running hotter too.
    My voltage 90% of the time is rock solid and don't flinch unless it starts heating up in here.

    That makes sense, what I will do is leave HWmonitor open tonight and see if it does it at all when its cool, or just sit here and watch it for a couple hours early in the morning tomorrow. If it does it less frequently I will chalk it up to the heat.

    So guys, I've clocked down a bit from before. Now at 2.8 Ghz instead of the 3.01Ghz I was at, the heat outside keeps sneaking in when the sun hits my room window in the morning. Dropping my OC a little caused a 3*C-4*C drop in temps, so hopefully that'll let me sleep a little easier at night. ;)
    Chicken Patty and (FIH) The Don say thanks.
