ah so you have permission now for a public release of this bios ?
many thanks and cant wait for the bios
Heres my first try at @ 3.8GHz, the board will go higher but I want to fix a few minor things first before stressing it too much
P5WDH BIOS 801
E66 @ 3.8GHz
Apex WC Very Low speed Fans
G.Skill HZ @ 4, 4, 3, 12 1:1
for Asus P5W DH users take a read of http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=110193 and http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showpost.php?p=1632781&postcount=42
I think the 13.36 seconds are a good result for a C2R at 3.8 GHz.
Thanks, I wont be satisfied till its dual prime stable at 3.8GHz though and benchable at 4GHz
What is said in this thread about the P5WDH FSB limitation seems to be badly worded:
Of course you can run the P5WDH above 360~370 MHz FSB.
yeah badly worded... grammar goes out the door in this age of the internet
i bought this mobo and just waiting for my X6800 to get delivered from pluscorp. Chainbolt i was just wondering what does the bios you got from asus have different from the normal one.
I got a modified 0801 revision overclocking BIOS from Asus. It's providing 1.85 volt for the MCH instead of the usual 1.65. The MCH voltage is essential for FSB overclocking - means for everybody who does not have a X6800.
Asus told me to use above 1.65 volt for a longer period of time only with additional cooling on the MCH. Otherwise it might burn out.
Anybody who wants it please contact me and I mail it - strictly at your own risk.
With the modded 801 maybe I wont need to Vmod the board ??, or maybe just Vmod the FSB Termination and maybe the Vdroop, though my chip seems to work well at very low Vcore so maybe I can do without the Vdroop mod
I have been running on an Asrock 775Twins-HDTV R2.0 for the last day or so that only has a max FSB of 340MHz and no Vcore adjustment but for a $100 board its fantastic
Looks like my Storm block mount is not good as the temps are usually both the same with this chip
Thanks for that chainbolt ill have a look and see what i can get i with standard bios i might get a copy of that bios later on.
sweet so when are you going to release the bios? thanks
Let me know your e-mail if you want it.
Any other enhancements in this BIOS chainbolt?
Thanks heaps. PM sent
I have not found any other than the increased MCH voltage.
Very interesting read: Easy pencil mods for the P5WDH!
"Pencil" means conductive ink, or indeed an old fashioned pencil with lead content.
Yes saw that but pencil = very dangerous IMHO, much better to use a 10 turn pot
Oh and please no one EVER use conductive ink for a pencil mod, it will fry you board 100% certain
Does the Storm G4 waterblock fit on P5WDH? (I have Cathar's one not Swiftec)
Conductive ink is specifcally made for that purpose. It's not "ink", but very similar to solder wire. I have my 975XBX running that way since weeks.
