Oh ok, lucky, i was using vcore + 113% before

so it's only settings ABOVE 113% that kill cpu's, 113% is OK?

Hey Dinos, what values did you set for drive strength and the other-thingy-similar-to-drive-strength? I use 7 and 2 on my Venice with TCCD memory.
Hi mate

this 704-2BTA bios is a ***** it uses funny wording and numbering system for drive strengths or i ate some funny **** that made me see things last night LOL

from memory the top setting was either 3weak or 4weak......yeah what's what i saw and the other one i used 3 but I have no clue whether it's good or not...eva can shed some light (hehehe i kno what he'll say....just test all of them and see what one does best )

also response time was Normal.....i also tried Weak

i really haven't done enough tesing to know if i was making the right calls or not

weak 2 = level 3
normal 2 = level 4
weak 3 = level 5
normal 3 = level 6
weak 4 = level 7

i ran MBM5 during those benchmarks....does anyone know if it would impact performance and how much...............i also take a screenshot during the run to have load temps and rest......now i want to shoot for the best possible times i can get on the second go this weekend without tweaking the windows or anything........my best 32M run is still with Abit on Venice with 263MHz on RAM so Abit is still a winner here

Would probably impact performance a little bit as MBM updates every 5 seconds.. so it's actually using a few CPU cycles every 5 seconds, as well as ~4-5mb RAM but that shouldn't matter
