Well, no luck with the bios update. Looks like I will need a new board before I can get my multi higher than 6. Everytime I boot it says, unknown cpu and lowers it to 6.
so I guess it is time to redo my heatsink, then just push it as high as possible with a 6x multi.
sorry for the double post
ok, so my temps did not improve when I redid the heatsink. I think it might be the quality of the thermal paste. There is no way that this cpu runs idle at 45C+. On tues I will work on getting it better. Then when my mobo gets here, I will be set I think. If they dont improve then, I will know something is up.
but* ntune says that my vcore is 1.49... and my temp is 15C. Wow, something is up. ehh.
